Combat the Lie: “Too Old to be of Use to God”

Are you still breathing?  If the answer to that very basic question is, “yes,” then you are not too old to be of use in God’s story!   You may have retired from your place of employment; you may be an empty nester, and may be a widow or widower; but God has a place and a purpose for your life right here, right now. “Those who are planted in the house of the Lord shall flourish in the courts of our God.  They shall still bear fruit in

I Was Made for This!

If you have ever experienced absolute joy and satisfaction in the midst of circumstances, a project, or another opportunity, prompting you to say, at least in your heart, “I was made for this,” then you understand what it’s like to discover your calling. The first time I invited a group of young women to my home for Bible Study and fellowship, I could not contain my excitement as I prepared for the first gathering.  My time in God’s Word

Be Still, and Know…A Day Alone with God

Our calendars betray what we believe about boundaries.  We know the importance of spending time with family and friends, and we talk about planning more time with God, but we get busy with day to day routines at school, or work, or church, and we are simply too tired to give any more, to anyone at the end of our day.   Even the subject of taking a break or getting away puts most of us on the defensive.  It confronts our difficulty with discipline,

Warfare in the Midst of Calling

You can know for certain that if God has a plan and purpose for your life, and He does, that the enemy – Satan, the world system, and your flesh – are out to destroy that plan and purpose.   The enemy hates God and those He loves.  If you are a child of God, you are a target for the enemy’s lies and schemes. As Christ followers we can’t escape this ongoing spiritual battle.  Rather, God has chosen to allow us the experiences to grow us,

God’s Bigger Purpose in Friendships

< C.S. Lewis said, “Is any pleasure on earth as great as a circle of Christian friends by a fire?”   I think not.  Just recently, my husband and I hosted our Bible study group for an afternoon of desserts and beverages.   In the south where we live, good food is a priority for a successful party.   But when the party is over, it is the fellowship that will be remembered, long after the red velvet cake and apple pie are gone. There is

Good Works: To Our Family

If there is one area of my life where I would like to go back in time to “re-set” my priorities, make different choices, and love others better, it would be within my family.    The fact is, I can’t go back to change the past, but I can be intentional now, with God’s help, to be the person He designed me to be for my husband, my children and grandchildren, my aging parents, and my extended family. Why do we naturally work so hard to please

Good Works: To our Neighbors

Lindsey has her neighborhood mapped out with names, phone numbers, and birthdays of her neighbors.  She coordinates daily walks for all who can participate, and checks in on those who are not able.  She feeds one neighbor’s birds and another’s dog when they are traveling, and remembers each and every family with a home-baked goodie for birthdays and at Christmas.  Lindsey is a good neighbor. So is Christy, who daily prays that God would allow

Good Works in our Ministry

When someone tells us they feel called to ministry, we may quickly assume they are going to seminary to become a pastor, or, perhaps they are going into the mission field to serve in Africa or another remote part of the world.  But in reality, we who are followers of Jesus Christ are all called to ministry.  Does that surprise you? You may be one who has given up hope on finding your place in God’s story.  Don’t despair!  God has not given

Good Works in Your Vocation

Ephesians 2:10 says, “For we are God’s workmanship created in Christ Jesus for good works which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.”  Have you stopped to consider how marvelous it is that the God of the universe created you, in Christ, for particular good works that you are to do?  Not only did God design you uniquely for a specific purpose, but He placed you in Christ so that those works could be accomplished in His power,

Interpret Your Life: Engaging the Process

Are you living a mediocre Christian life?  Have you resigned to accept your ‘ho-hum’ existence, not knowing that God has a glorious adventure planned specifically for you? I’m reminded of a Native American fable, shared by Dwight Edwards in the book Experiencing Christ within, about a young brave who happened upon a nest of golden eagle eggs.  Deciding to have some fun, he took one of the eggs and placed it in the nest of some prairie chickens.
