Change is inevitable. Whether by choice, by decisions of others or by default, we are impacted by change. Whether the experience is good or bad, we will always know change on this side of Heaven. We experience so many different changes in life that it would be extremely hard to count or reflect on all…

There is an account in the Bible about a very famous couple named Abraham and Sarah (originally Abram and Sarai). Now they weren’t as famous then as they are now, but like many, their fame arose long after they were gone. Most of us know who they are. Abraham was the father of faith and…

Our four year old seems to have this knack for breaking things. Most times he breaks things belonging to his older brother. I don’t think his intentions are to destroy his brother’s toys, at least I hope not. Maybe it’s his young age or lack of understanding of caring for things that attributes to this…

Leslie was twenty one years old and had recently completed her undergraduate degree. She had just moved to D.C. to pursue her Master’s degree.

“O Holy Night, the stars are brightly shining…” Do you know that tune? It is such a beautiful song if attention is paid to the lyrics. I remember like it was yesterday, my first Christmas season after having given my life completely to Christ. By this I mean, I no longer simply attended church “here…

We face many difficulties, both because of the sin in our lives and the rampant evil in the world around us. John, like other Biblical writers, continually reminded believers that God is just as real and close to us today as Jesus was to the disciples almost 2,000 years ago. This reality is true even…

The first time I saw this term “Re-Think”, it spoke volumes to me. It was used in an advertisement for a cell phone introduction. The term “Re-Think” would advance from some distance in small letters and continue to progress until one could read the word “RE-THINK“ in enlarged bold lettering. Our lives evolve in a…
