  • COLUMN: Leave your burdens to the Lord

    Burdens! All have them because burdens are a part of life. They may refer to sickness, accident, financial reverses, or anything that is beyond our control. If we are going to live victoriously, we must learn how to handle our burdens.

    The Psalmist admonishes us in Psalm 55:22 to “Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and He shall sustain thee.” Whatever comes to us, we are told to lay it upon the Lord. If we do this, God will sustain (keep, nourish, strengthen) us in whatever life hands us.

  • COLUMN: Grief is softened by thought of eternal life

    ….Do not … grieve like the rest of men who have no hope. 1 Thessalonians 4:13

    Several years ago, a dear friend lost her husband unexpectedly. At the funeral home, she asked me to write some articles about grief. I told her I would, but, in truth, I couldn’t write effectively about something I had never truly experienced.

  • COLUMN: Let them sing for joy

     You may have been the little boy or the parent in the following well-known story. The boy was misbehaving in church with his father trying unsuccessfully to keep him quiet. Finally, the father picked up his son and headed for the vestibule. As they went through the back door the little boy looked over his father’s shoulder and said, “You all pray for me! Pray for me!”

  • COLUMN: Think life isn't fair? It's not.

     We have all heard it said, “Life isn’t fair.” And for some of us it seems so very true. 

    Cancer is in some families, and not others; some people can find good jobs, others can't no matter how hard they work; some people have plenty, and others struggle everyday just to live and pay their bills.

    Some parents lose a child or two to death, while others lose none; some people are sick their entire life, while others enjoy abundant health.

  • COLUMN: Meet the God of all grace

     The Apostle Peter says God is “the God of all grace” (1 Peter 5:10-11). Paul in Titus 2:11 says, “the grace of God that brings salvation.” Both these New Testament writers speak of God’s grace. God’s grace is a major subject for study in the Bible. 

    God’s grace brings salvation according to Paul in Titus 2:11. He tells the Ephesians, “In Him (Jesus) we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace” (1:7).

  • COLUMN: Don't forget God's benefits

     In Psalm 103:2 we are admonished to “forget none of His benefits.” 

    Have you counted your benefits from the Lord lately? We sometimes forget how God has graciously blessed us. A tag on the front of a car parked at the Golden Corral last week said it all – “BLESSED.” One word sums it up for us.

    Someone said, “It is time to wake up, look up, pray up, and praise up.”

  • TOUCH POINTS: Flee sexual immorality
