100 Ways

100 Ways

Years ago, Dathan Wade, one of the young boys in my church, had a problem. His class was going to walk up town and watch a movie, supposedly with a religious theme. Short of calling the school and telling them he couldn’t go and thereby making a spectacle out of him,...

The Lord’s Side?

The Lord’s Side?

I heard from a young teacher last semester. It was the first day that one of her elementary students began testing the rules, and she was scrambling to know how to handle the situation. The school year was new, and the students were used to harmony in their class....

Their Last Chance

Their Last Chance

(Guest Post: Roberta Sarver) When God urges you to do something, don’t hesitate. I learned that lesson the hard way as a young Christian. I had been a follower of Christ only a short time when the first of God’s “nudges” came my way. It was an inward impression on my...

Like God Sees It

Like God Sees It

(I have been asked for an update after my December post called “God With Us.” Here’s the update.) Have you ever had a situation where you found yourself laughing, then figured out later that it was the wrong reaction? I think that must have been what the children felt...

Enough

Enough

(Guest post from Abigail Hamilton) God revealed Himself to me at a very vital time. It was right before my senior year, and my brother and I wanted to stay with Grammy and Papa Hazelwood before the school year started. Even though not blood related, this precious...

Redeemed

Redeemed

I was going slowly down the road, looking at the damage of the burned-out house down the street from me. As I passed, I noticed a bunch of things by the curb with a sign “FREE” nearby. I quickly turned left and went around the block. I wanted to get a better look at...

Waiting on the Lord

Waiting on the Lord

At a revival this weekend, the song leader chose “Waiting on the Lord.” There was a shortage of songbooks, but my friend sitting next to me was willing to share. “No,” I told her, “I don’t need the words to that one.” How could I NOT know the words to this song after...

Crooked Places

Crooked Places

Last week I was listening to the Bible. I got tickled when I got to Ecclesiates 1:15—Solomon’s take on the imperfect world around him. “That which is crooked cannot be made straight: and that which is wanting cannot be numbered.” As Matthew Poole said about this...

The Diet Starts Tomorrow

The Diet Starts Tomorrow

I’ve packed on about 35 pounds since I’ve been married. I know this is a really tricky topic, and I’ve made people upset when I’ve mentioned diets in the past. But will you excuse me if I tell you, that I’d rather not put on another 35? I enjoy eating, and my...

It’s My Reasonable Service

It’s My Reasonable Service

I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. Romans 12:1 A couple of weeks ago, my father-in-law was scheduled for testing in Tulsa. I thought...
