Teen Tuesday—The Right Way to Make Decisions

Teen Tuesday—The Right Way to Make Decisions

Here’s something to think about: Are you making spiritual decisions…or physical decisions? For instance, someone asks you to do something and, if you feel good physically, the answer is yes! But if you don’t feel good or are tired, well, the answer is “No thank you” (while thinking No way!) You can be thankful that God gives […]

Waiting Eagerly for the Word

In the country of Taiwan, Jim and I were blessed to experience the Bible come alive.

Both of them have put in a long day at the office, so…who is going to fix the meal, clean up the dishes, and do the laundry? […]

“Success” Is Achieved One Decision at a Time

How did the men and women in the Bible accomplish great things for God? There wasn’t any secret formula or bestselling book on success for them. In fact, they were ordinary people like you and me.

He was called by God to lead His people–about 2 million of them!—out of Egypt (Exodus 3:1-22). But there was just one problem-the people weren’t sure […]

The Ministry of Encouragement

The ministry of encouragement should go out to everyone you encounter, even if it’s only for a minute. Ask your heart, “What can I give this person? A word of encouragement? A listening ear? A comforting touch?” (And, of course, that’s with a big smile and a hearty hello!) For instance, I was attending a […]
