Combat the Lie: My Past Disqualifies Me

You love the Lord and want to serve Him with the gifts, strengths, and passion He has given you.  But because of past failures, you believe the lie: “My past disqualifies me from opportunities to serve God.”   But the truth is, the scars of your past often qualify you for God’s present purpose for your life! As a child of God, one who has been redeemed by Jesus Christ, you have also been redeemed from your past.  In fact, God’s word says,

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,

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 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.

Identity: Who You Are, Not What You Do

Ask one hundred strangers to tell you about themselves, and be prepared to hear about their jobs, their education, and their accomplishments. There is rarely hesitation in their words because they are confident in what they do.   But have they told you who they are? The world system has trained us from our earliest days to build our resumes to impress other people.  We get caught up in the “rat race to the top” and, sadly, some of us raise

Identity: Your Calling Intersects with Community and Culture

When you look at the day’s news headlines, or take time to listen to others speak of their pain, or even consider your own trials and suffering, you know that we live in troubled times.   But have you considered that your unique calling, your mission from God has a context in the generation, the culture, and in the community where God has placed you? When God’s calling on your life intersects with real and deep needs in the lives of others,
