  • Joy and sadness reconciled

    A few years ago, Pixar released the animated film, “Inside Out,” about 11-year-old Riley and her emotions: Joy, Sadness, Fear, Anger and Disgust.

    Joy, the dominant emotion depicted as the perpetual light-hearted optimist, relentlessly works to keep Riley happy.

    For most of Riley’s life Joy has done her job successfully, but when Riley’s family moves from Minnesota to San Francisco, Sadness rises to the head of the emotional pack.

  • Be still, yes I will: Eight letter help guide my life

    My current screen saver on my phone is a simple Bible verse, a command and a promise, eight small but powerful words: “Be still and know that I am God” (Psalm 46:10).

    That verse, those eight small, ordinary words, has been my lifeline for the past year or two as I have struggled with some difficult things within my family.

    Be still.

    Be -- not pretend to be or try to be, but be.

    Whenever God gives a command in his Word, he also gives the means to do it.

  • 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

  • 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.”
