Good Things to Come: The Plans and Purposes of God

Good things to come should be the attitude of Christians throughout the year. Our Christmas celebrations should remind us of the gospel message Jesus came to bring–the good news that we have a Savior who offers hope, both while we live on earth and after we die, in heaven. The day after Christmas we should begin to live the coming year remembering that the Babe of Bethlehem brought us salvation and eternal life.

Humanity of Jesus Part 3: Jesus Understands Human Need

I cannot understand how the Son of God is perfectly man and perfectly God, but I know from experience that Jesus understands human need. In everything, from needing food to eat and water to drink, to having compassion on the poor and sick, Jesus understands. He knows the depth of human need because He was human during his time on earth. Whatever your struggle, Jesus knows what you need to heal.

Life Preserver: A Meditation on Suffering

Life Preserver may be unlike anything you have ever read before. When I wrote it, I wasn’t quite certain what to do with it. However, God gave it to me during my prayer time, and others have certainly struggled with these same issues. I have had health problems for two thirds of my life. The older I become, the worse it gets. Like many of you, I have a hard time understanding why a loving God chooses to allow suffering into the lives of His children. I have questioned, pleaded, come to acceptance, and began the process over again. Send me your comments. I would love to pray for you!

Our World Aflame Part Five: A Wild Donkey

When Sarah and Abraham circumvented God’s plan by deciding to have a child through Sarah’s maid, Hagar, they unknowingly loosed a wild donkey in the world and everyone has suffered for it since. God made that child into a great nation, as He had promised to do with Abraham’s descendants, but there were consequences. I would love to hear your comments on this last part of my series on Our World Aflame.
