Finding Purpose in Broken Pieces


For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. —John 3:16 KJV Herb Kliewer was forty-nine years old when he broke his neck in a fall and was left totally paralyzed.

A Good Weird


Imagine it’s your birthday. You’re all dressed up, enjoying lunch with a friend. After the plates are cleared, she passes you the shiny wrapped box. She grins and says, “Open it! I saw this, and it was so perfect I couldn’t resist.” You yank off the bow, tear away the paper, open the box .

JUDE: A Benediction


Jude wrote to warn the church about false teachers.  In the “benediction” of his letter we find great comfort.  “Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling, and to present you faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy, to God our Savior, who alone is wise, be glory and

Pouring God’s Grace on Others

Adding God to Your Everyday Routine


I bless God every chance I get; my lungs expand with His praise.  —Psalm 34:1 MSG We know all about everyday things.  We have everyday clothes – our “grungies” we wear when we clean house, join the kids in the sandbox, and mow the lawn.  We have everyday shoes – well worn, and comfy.  We

Don’t Just Stand There . . . Pray Something!


I learned this practical prayer principle from Ron Dunn’s book with that title.
