Hope

Finding an Anchor for the Storms of Life

The old sailor looked at the skies and saw a dark storm coming. As the sea became rough and choppy, the old salt calmly lowered the heavy-chained anchor link by link, battened down the hatches and went to bed for the night. He knew the storm would be rough. But he had faith in the grasp of the anchor. He knew his boat would be there in the morning.

Living with Hope In Spite of the Circumstances

Hope is determined and doesn’t give up. God wants us to be locked up in hope, trusting that He can change what needs to be changed, that we can do what He wants us to do, and that all things are possible with God.

Life

Together in the Christian life

Regular church attendance should never be viewed as something you do to gain God’s merit. We are not saved by good works. Instead, it should provide the catalyst for spiritual growth.

The Suffering Leader

The suffering leader sounds like an un-American idea. In our paradigm, leaders flourish, whether on Wall Street or in the house church. Even in the spiritual realm, we are susceptible to expectations that flourishing leaders have flourishing lives—yet we know better.

Peace

Is Your Silence Golden?

I’ve noticed how many of us find it hard to simply quiet ourselves down — I mean, really shut down all the external voices, demands, and impulses that compel us to keep in motion all the spinning plates of thoughts and reasonings.

Strength

The Lord Will Fight for You

Do you ever panic when your situation looks bleak, thinking God has forgotten you? It’s human nature, I’m sure, to fear the worst when the odds are against us. But I believe God wants to do so much more for us when we trust Him during times of uncertainty.

What does it mean to have faith?

Whether this is your first or four-thousandth day as a Christian, or you aren’t sure you really want to be a Christian yet, you’ve probably heard of this thing Christians call “faith.” What you might not be sure of is why it’s such a big deal.
