The Lifeguard Chair Is Never Empty

One of our favorite places to go to relax is the beach. The beach we most often go to has lifeguards, but only during the summer months. During the other times of the year, the lifeguard chair is empty. In fact, the lifeguard chair is not even on the beach during those times. If you get into the ocean when […]

He Has Risen! He Is Alive!

On the first day of the week, very early in the morning, the women took the spices they had prepared and went to the tomb. They found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. While they were wondering about this, suddenly two men in clothes that gleamed like lightning stood beside […]

We Live In A Good Friday World

“Finally Pilate handed him over to them to be crucified. So the soldiers took charge of Jesus. Carrying his own cross, he went out to the place of the Skull (which in Aramaic is called Golgotha). There they crucified him, and with him two others – one on each side and Jesus in the middle.” (John 19:16-18) We live in […]

More Than A Decorated Easter Egg!

“You can dress him up but you can’t take him anywhere.” You’ve probably heard that statement used to describe someone, or maybe it has been used to describe you. It is a reference to the fact that no matter how fancy someone looks on the outside, they are still the same person on the inside. Do you really think behavior […]

The Curtain Was Torn In Two

Our prayers for this Holy Week leading up to Easter are that you get a fresh sense of what Christ dying on the Cross means for us. To us, one of the most powerful and personal verses in the Bible is Matthew 27:51. Here is the context; we read in Exodus 26-27 that in the Tabernacle the Most Holy Place […]

The Birds Of The Air

In yesterday’s post we talked about not allowing yesterday to hold you back from today and tomorrow. Today we want to talk about the flip side of that same coin; not worrying about tomorrow. Mark Twain once said, “I’ve had a lot of worries in my life, most of which never happened.” Isn’t it true that many of us can […]

What Game Film Are You Watching?

During my high school and college days I was a member of the football team. We experienced some big wins and some hard-to-swallow losses. After each game we celebrated the win or moaned over the loss, but one thing was always certain; there was another game a week away. We would watch the game film of the previous game, then […]

Even When It Is 4th & 20!

You have probably heard, or even used, one of these two phrases – “The glass is half full” or “The glass is half empty.” If the glass is filled to 50% capacity is it half empty or is it half full? That rhetorical question is often a litmus test of a person’s perspective on a certain situation or circumstance. What […]

Slowly Drifting Out To Sea

Have you ever asked yourself, or thought to yourself, “How in the world did I get here?” You find yourself in some situation and you are not sure how you got there. Over time you neglect your physical health and then one day you look in the mirror or get on the scale, and it hits you, you are overweight […]
