Have your kids ever fallen asleep in the wrong spot and so you pick up their limp bodies and carry them? As a dad, I enjoy those times. Often, I will nestle their sleepy heads against my chest and hold them tight as I carry them where they are supposed to be.

  • Have your kids ever fallen asleep in the wrong spot and so you pick up their limp bodies and carry them? As a dad, I enjoy those times. Often, I will nestle their sleepy heads against my chest and hold them tight as I carry them where they are supposed to be.

  • “It was you who set all the boundaries of the earth; you made both summer and winter.”  Psalm 74:17

  • I’ve heard it said before, “all I can do is pray.” Often this phrase is associated with being at the end of hope. Prayer is often times a last chance, hail-mary pass when we have nothing more that we can do.

  • Forgiveness and reconciliation might be two of the most important and most under-utilized practices of the Christian faith.  In 2 Corinthians 5:18, Paul points to Jesus as the Great Reconciler who, in reconciling us with God, gives to us, as followers of Christ, the ministry of reconciliation.

  • Luke chapter 24 records the story of the women looking for the body of Jesus 3 days after his crucifixion. As they arrived at the tomb they saw that the stone had been rolled away. Two angels appeared to them and said, “Why do you look for the living among the dead? He is not here He is alive.”

  • Jesus said, “Blessed are they that have not seen and yet have believed!” John 20:29

  • Easter Sunday is one of my absolute favorite Sundays of the year.  Whatever doubts or disbeliefs I have throughout the rest of the year, or even next Sunday, as we read of Thomas’ disbelief in John 20:19-31, on Easter I feel in my bones—in my whole being I know—that God raised Jesus from the dead.  I can’t explain it; I just know it, and it gives me hope.
