It’s Satan. He wants you to be exhausted and overwhelmed. He wants to discourage you with circumstances. He wants to find you tired and weak so … [Read more...]

Of the titles I have, my favorite is "mother of five." When Chad, our youngest, went to first grade, I'd been a pre-school mom for 180 uninterrupted months. Two years from now, when Chad is 18, I will have mothered a high schooler for that same amount of time—15 straight years! I told my mother that I really wanted to have another baby, to which she lovingly and wearily replied, "I am too tired … [Read more...]

Modern culture is obsessed with justice. Don’t think so? Try turning on the TV without finding an episode of Law & Order or CSI. Producers have the golden ticket: set heinous crimes in different cities. That’s all we want, apparently. Then there’s actual legal drama that we’ve twisted into entertainment.

“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.” Hebrews 12:1 If you’re like me, what you’ve personally refused to lay or cast down along the way has been the biggest hindrance of all in how you’ve run the race. I’ve held on to … [Read more...]
