God Is Not Like a Microwave

You want a late night snack and a bowl of cereal will fill that empty spot in your stomach. You pour your cereal into the bowl and then find out that the milk in the refrigerator has gone sour. So you jump in the car and drive to the 24-hour grocery store down the street. You run in and grab […]

The Statue…

None of us have to go to the ends of the world to find someone who is hurting. All you need to do is look to your left or to your right, or possibly just in the mirror. We are sure that you know someone who is battling cancer or some serious medical problem, someone who is facing death or […]

Longing for the Presence of God

Today we want to give you Scripture straight up, without any commentary from us. We want God to speak to you through His Word.  — PSALM 84 — Verse 1- How lovely is your dwelling place, Lord Almighty! 2- My soul yearns, even faints, for the courts of the Lord; my heart and my flesh cry out for the living God. 3- Even the sparrow has found a […]

Lukewarm Coffee Does Not Taste Good

We are sure that if you drink coffee you do not like it lukewarm. You like it piping hot. Why else would you pour it into an insulated mug? The same can be said if you enjoy lemonade or iced tea. You don’t drink either of them at room temperature. You fill the glass with ice cubes and drink it […]
