How to Hear God’s Voice

2

I once had an atheist friend who was as smart as a whip. Having completed a Masters degree at a prestigious university, he could easily go toe-to-toe with just about anyone in cleverly giving proof of God’s non-existence. From an intellectual point of view, I knew I was no match for him. In fact, we never engaged on this level. One time, however, he brought up the subject of God. He asked how I could believe in something so nonsensical as a God I couldn’t hear or see. So I posed the following question to him, “Can you explain your […]

God Help Me Please!

0

Have you ever had one of those days when you say, “God help me please”?  You’re absolutely overwhelmed by life.  Even when you’ve shared with everyone in your support system, you still feel like you haven’t gotten it off your chest.  You feel listened to but not heard.  Glanced at but not seen. Recognised but not known.  Thought of but not remembered. What’s happening in your life? What has you overwhelmed?  What’s caused you to have one of those days when you say, “God help me please”?  What are you dealing with that even when you’ve shared it with everyone in your […]

Why Should We Go to Church?

2

Recently, I’ve been thinking about why should we go to church?  Then, I was reading Matthew 6 and these words jumped off the page. Be especially careful when you are trying to be good so that you don’t make a performance out of it. It might be good theater, but the God who made you won’t be applauding. Matthew 6:1 Message This idea of God applauding got me thinking, What does God applaud?  What things happen here on earth that make Him jump out of his seat and say, “YES! You’ve got it!  Right on!  Way to go!  I’m so […]

God in Everyday Life-God of the Ordinary

4

Sometimes we willingly follow God into the extraordinary yet we lose Him in the ordinary.  We know God of the praise song and the week of prayer.  Sometimes we’re not as familiar with God in everyday life. We lose Him in the routine of going to work, picking up the kids, making dinner, bathing, cooking, cleaning, sleeping, waking up and doing it all over again…and again. It reminds me of driving late at night, with the window half-open as you watch the white dashed lines pass one-by-one underneath the tread of the tires.  The sparse traffic accompanied by the gentle […]

How Does God Answer Prayers?

0

Have you ever wondered, how does God answer prayers?  Well the best way I can think of the answer is through the idea of winning and losing Have you ever been runner up or felt like second best? There are so many motivational quotes that say “Nobody remembers who finished second, except the guy who finished second.”  It’s such a strong idea that if you try to give credit to the person who said it, the internet credits it to Charles Schulz, Bobby Unser and likely many others.

Is Peace Just the Absence of War or Is It Something More?

2

We don’t have to look far into the past to see tragedy.  This year alone, there have been natural disasters, the killing of innocent children, war between nations, and very horrific crimes.  About six months ago, very close to home here in Australia, there was an attack that robbed this country of its innocence. How can it be that in John 14:27 Jesus promises to give us peace that’s incomparable to what the world can offer us?  How is it that He tells us don’t let your heart be troubled and don’t be afraid? I Love a Good Story Like me, […]
