Hope

Rise Up! It’s Not Over!

I love the beauty of God’s Word. It’s precision, order, and purpose. God sees everything and is orchestrating events within human history and our individual lives – all for His great glory. When Hagar and her son Ishmael are cast out into the barren wilderness, the Angel of God calls to Hagar from Heaven. Though her son lay dying, God comforts her with His Presence and then gives her a command: “UP! LIFT UP THE BOY, AND HOLD HIM FAST WITH YOUR HAND. . . . ” GENESIS 21:18

Our Glorious Hope

We all go through distressing times in life. These seasons of suffering may be brought about by relational difficulties, financial hardships, or other trials. But as God’s children, we can take heart in knowing that our pain is not wasted.

How to Treat Anxiety with a Healing Dose of Scripture

Anxiety may well be the norm for those who live in uncertain times. And yet there is a Scriptural answer for it. Perhaps we should think of anxiety not so much as depression as a blend of worry and fear. It’s a first-cousin to stress. Anxiety is fear about something that may or may not happen in the future. And it doesn’t go away or cave-in when you become a believer in Christ, in the same way that temptation actually increases after salvation.

You can make a difference

Overwhelming odds can make cowards of us all. Because there is so much to be done, we can easily lose heart and do nothing at all. Because there are so many people in the world to reach, it is easy to forget that God wants to use us to touch those within our sphere of responsibility. Have you ever felt like that? I have too.

Peace: Finding God’s Complete Rest for Your Life

It's a search that drives men and nations to great extremes -- the search for peace. So much of our time, energy and resources are consumed with trying to find and keep peace with family members, friends and neighbors. But often, no matter how hard we try, peace eludes us. The war in our minds and hearts rages on and on. Where can we find peace?

Compassion for a Traveler

One of the most familiar and well-loved stories in the Bible is that of the good Samaritan. However, we must ask ourselves whether we leave it in the past, thinking of it as merely a good story, or look at it from a modern-day perspective. We certainly live in days when the spirit of the Good Samaritan is needed, and the place it should be displayed is in the lives of Christians.

The Undeniable Mark of a Champion

Becoming a winner entails the strength to stay at a task even when you feel like giving up. It is the willpower to keep on keeping on when you would rather resign. Call it whatever you would like - determination, endurance, persistence, tenacity - whatever, it is an undeniable mark of a champion.
