God-Aware: Ascribe to the Lord Strength

Ooh…how I love to feel my strength. I love lifting weights and lifting heavy. There is something about feeling the rush of blood flowing to that particular body part and feeling the oxygen in my lungs conspire with my heart to make the lift.

What Does It Mean to Surrender?

Sometimes I want to smile when people tell me certain situations are “the hardest thing you’ll ever do.” They might say teaching school is the hardest. Or marriage is the hardest.

DEVOTION: More Than a Wishbone Faith

When I was little, each Thanksgiving would usher in the tradition of  “Save the Wishbone”. After carving the turkey, mom would tell whomever got that piece of meat to save the bone, and we’d put it up in the top of the cupboard to wait for it to dry out. Then we’d take it down [...]

Choose Life: Self Control

Physical exercise is a means of caring for the body. It takes self control to workout consistently in order to achieve a desired goal. Likewise, spiritual exercise is a means of caring for the spirit. It takes self control too to "walk in the spirit" (Galatians 5:16) daily in order to receive a reward. For [...]
