“I’m Going to Kill Myself”

Many years ago, when I married Troy, I did not know he had told people that he would kill himself. While we were dating, I felt uncomfortable in my relationship with Troy. When I tried to tell him that we needed to “cool it,” he became upset. Each time he cried and said, “I don’t […]

The Greater Glory

The prophet Haggai wrote: “For thus says the Lord of hosts: ‘Once more (it is a little while) I will shake heaven and earth, the sea and dry land; and I will shake all nations, and they shall come to the Desire of All Nations [Messiah], and I will fill this temple with glory . […]

How to Find the Love of Your Life

At sixteen years old, I found the love of my life at a Salvation Army camp. Three years later, we were married. There aren’t enough words in the English language, not enough words in all the languages on earth, to express how wonderful it is to find the love of your life. I consider it […]

The Devoted Creator

It is safe to assume that almost everyone has taken part in creation. Most people have played a part in creating something. It may have been a small something; it may have been a massive something. As children, we make art out of dry noodles and paper plates. As adults, we build cabinets, manufacture cars, […]

Praying Your Temperament

I began my life with God privately, a thirteen-year-old in my room at night, pouring out my concerns and wishes to a God I didn’t know and begging Him to be real. Ironically, that was probably the best prayer time in my entire life. Back then I knew I didn’t have a clue about God […]

In 1972, Harold (not his real name) received his draft card welcoming him to the Vietnam War. Our family had been dreading this day for several years, as Harold had issues with war and refused to participate in it. Besides this, young Harold is the Forest Gump of our family, and as such, he is […]

Amazing Grace

“Unclean, unclean!” Lepers had to scream when they saw someone healthy coming near to them. The best way against leprosy in Jesus’ day was to isolate them from society and let them die alone, far from their families. Lepers did not receive health care or spiritual care, since the priests couldn’t go near them. Nor […]

God’s Enduring Faithfulness

by Tanner Scott   God has many attributes, and all of these perfections are important. I say perfections because God is the perfect embodiment of His attributes, including His faithfulness. Hebrews 11:1 says, “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen” (NKJV). Faith is necessary for Christians if […]

God’s Faithfulness

by Dinah Davis   What does God’s faithfulness mean, exactly? In short, it means His steadfast trustworthiness. I have always thought that our job was to be faithful to God, not for God to be faithful to us. However, that is not the case. It is much more difficult for us to be faithful than […]

God’s Faithfulness

by Kara Caswell   God’s faithfulness is evident all around us. Sometimes we are blind to the different ways God is working in our lives. However, even when we don’t see His faithfulness, we can have confidence in it because the Bible reminds us time and again that God is faithful. For example, Hebrews 10:23 […]
