Moved to Worship

Moved to Worship

“I will lift up my eyes to the mountains; from where shall my help come? My help comes from the LORD, Who made heaven and earth.” (Psalm 121:1-2) Those verses took on new meaning for me as I spent the last ten days in Nepal, gazing at the beautiful Himalayan mountain ranges, including an up-close look at Mount Everest. My response every time I looked at the mountains was one of worship, wanting to fall

Hope in the Midst of Dark Times

Hope in the Midst of Dark Times

But to be honest, the meaning of this song is just as much for adults as it is for kids. The challenge from this song is, are you going to let your light shine? Are you going to let the light of Christ in you

The Lesson of Grace Through the Eyes of a Cat

I recently adopted two kittens named Hobson and Hannah. They are now about six months old, and they are a handful, especially the little boy kitten.

One of his favorite places to climb on is the wall of my walk-in shower, where he precariously tries to balance himself without falling in.  I have scolded him

Resting in the Sovereignty of God

Resting in the Sovereignty of God

Does your life seem out of control and you’re wondering why your circumstances are what they are? When I find myself in those situations, the attribute of God that most comforts me is His sovereignty. He is in control, no matter how bad things seem. As I ponder God’s sovereignty, I am reminded of three truths: 1. Nothing touches me that God hasn’t allowed. Everything that happens to me and around me is under God’s control.
