  • Can evil be used for good?

    Last week I met with Carla, a young woman who has an amazing story of how God is using her.

    But first, she had to go through a time of incredible pain and darkness. Of course, much of her darkness was the resulting consequences of her own bad choices. Still, those consequences were the very ones she needed to suffer to become the usable vessel she is today.

    I’ve heard many pastors use Oswald Chambers’ quote: “Before God can use a (person) greatly, he must wound him deeply.”

  • Dealing with this sin I’m in

    Psalm 51:1-4

    Sometimes I feel as if I’m out-of-sync, as if I’m in a funk.

    Sometimes I feel like I’m standing still, while my life fills with junk.

    Sometimes I think no one understands, this loneliness that I feel.

    Sometimes in my secret closet, the words just don’t seem real.

    Sometimes I ask the Lord, Lord why do my bones ache within.

    Then I hear him answer, IT’S YOUR UNCONFESSED SIN.

    P. W. Harris

  • A sheep’s saga

    For the past few years I’ve been following on social media the true-life saga of a lost child.

    The child is an adult, but he’s still a child to his frantic mother -- and to God.

    The son is in his mid- to late-20s I think, and has been living on the streets off and on for a few years, depending on his drug addiction.

    When he’s sober, he works. But when he’s not, well, his mom isn’t sure how he makes his money to support his addiction or feed himself or find a place to sleep.

  • Cuevas: Humans are responsible for the evil we do

    Are humans pretty much good or are we evil?

  • Feelin’ the wind

    One of my favorite things to do is sit on my couch and look out our big back window and watch the wind blow through the trees.

    It reminds me of the conversation Jesus once had with a religious leader named Nicodemus.

    Talking about the need for a person to be transformed by the Holy Spirit, Jesus told him that God’s Spirit is like the wind.

  • Faith and your brain

    Mark Twain wrote, “What a wee little part of a person’s life and his acts are his words. His real life is led in his head and is known to none but himself. All day long, the mill of his brain is grinding, and his thoughts, not those other things, are his history.”
