Success that Matters Most

Success that Matters Most

As it gets close to the end of the year, my email inbox and social media feed are filled with programs that promise to bring me success in 2020. Some promise success through a new diet or workout routine. Others promise if you use their planner or read their book, you...

What Are You Searching For?

What Are You Searching For?

It never fails that during the holidays' something I used daily gets misplaced, and I can't find it. Maybe it is all the new stuff that is in the house. I don't know. I will rifle through the house, and my wife will inevitably ask me, "What are you searching for?" I...

Humble Beginnings

Humble Beginnings

I love it when I am watching a sporting event, and they do an in-depth interview with one of the star players. I like to know their background, especially when it comes from humble beginnings. They had to fight against all the odds, but they overcame them and went on...

Oh What a Night!

Oh What a Night!

Most of us have a memory of something spectacular happening. Maybe it was an athletic performance or an award given for work you have done. Whatever it was, it is something you won’t too forget. The same can be said of the shepherds who were told about Jesus’ birth....

Divine Intervention

Divine Intervention

Have you ever had plans that were ready to fall apart, and then all of a sudden, they were saved in the most unrealistic way? It was almost as if divine intervention took place to save them miraculously. The Birth of Christ took some divine intervention to keep God’s...

Do You Believe in Miracles

Do You Believe in Miracles

The word miracle is thrown around to explain a lot of events. It has been rendered down to anything people can't believe would happen is now a miracle. This has dulled our senses to what God is capable of in our lives. We've lowered our expectations and hopes to...

Mary did you know?

Mary did you know?

Pentatonix does a great version of the Christmas song, “Mary, did you know?” I always think of this passage when I listen to it. Imagine what was going through Mary’s mind as the angel Gabriel told her she was going to give birth to the Messiah. How she responded is a...

A Righteous Branch

A Righteous Branch

You can tell a tree is living by the number of new branches that are shooting out in the spring. They show that life is coursing through the stump of the tree, and the root system is excellent. Sometimes those branches shoot out in wrong places and need to be pruned...

His Name Shall Be Called

His Name Shall Be Called

Baby names are a big thing. Every year the news reports the top names for tots. This year Sophia is the top name for a girl, and Liam is the top name for boys. If you ever had to pick a name for a child, it can be stressful. With one child, we decided as we drove to...

Don’t Miss the Signs

Don’t Miss the Signs

I spent the better part of a weekend installing Christmas lights on our house. Up and down the ladder hundreds of times to get things to look just right. I love this time of year, but it would be easy to rush through the season and miss what is important. Jesus came...

More Than Conquerors

More Than Conquerors

Did you know that many of the successful people you look up to struggle with success? It’s true. Whether it be an athlete, actor, business owner, or politician, they have a hard time handling it. One of the reasons is that they get to the pinnacle, and it isn’t...

What Are You Living For?

What Are You Living For?

Do you ever sit and ponder what your purpose on earth is? Ever ask yourself, “What are you living for?” Many people live their whole lives, never answering these questions. Henry David Thoreau famously said, “People live lives of quiet desperation.” What if you could...

Full of the Spirit of Life

Full of the Spirit of Life

This devotional will run precisely two weeks from Christmas day. I don’t know about you, but the Christmas spirit is in full force. Decorations are everywhere, stores are playing Christmas music, and people are always in a hurry going somewhere. It’s easy to lose the...

Test My Heart

Test My Heart

Ever since I turned fifty, I have been inundated with medical and insurance advertisements. My insurance company wants me to get a check-up, my doctor wants me to get a colonoscopy, and AARP wants me to buy their life insurance. Did you know that God desires to...

Be a Willing Example

Be a Willing Example

The adage “More is caught than taught” is truer today than it ever was. There is so much noise and chatter in the world that words have lost their meaning. People may not be listening, but they sure are watching. They want to know if someone is authentic. It is an...
