Have you ever felt like you were in a pit you would never get out of? Whether it was your health, your finances, your marriage, legal problems…the list is endless of the things that can make us feel helpless and hopeless. Today we seem to be reminded daily of our lack of control over much […]

Have you ever tried to go up or down a flight of stairs and misjudged how many steps there were? How about walking down the sidewalk when you step off a curb that you didn’t know was there? Hopefully those stumbles caused you no greater physical damage than embarrassment at the potential snickers from onlookers. […]
If the recent hurricanes in Houston and Florida have shown us anything, it’s that we are not promised “our best life now” here on this earth. We often fall into the trap of thinking life in Christ will be all sunshine and balloons, all the time. But that isn’t what the Apostles’ lives were like. […]
