BUSY, BUSY, BUSY You can’t add a desire to be closer to God on top of a busy life. He won’t fit where there is no space. You need to take something out to let Him in. You need to say “no” to parts of your life and put in the “yes” of Jesus Christ. […]

GETTING UNTANGLED Do you ever find yourself not taking time to spend with God because you’re so busy with other things? A child of God who wants to please God keeps his or her priorities straight and refuses to do things that could distract him from what is really important. In order to grow closer […]

TERROR IN THE STREETS My wife and I were in London exactly one month ago. It was peaceful and vibrant. Now there is terror in the streets. What can we make of it? First of all, it is not surprising. Satan brought evil into this world in the Garden of Eden; and ever since, good […]

A RED LETTER DAY On Wednesday of this week, I was jolted out of bed at 4:30 in the morning by my alarm, and at 5:30 was in a van filled with Gideons heading for the University of Minnesota campus. We ate breakfast and prayed at a McDonalds off University Avenue, and by 7 a.m. […]

A SPECIAL PURPOSE Sitting on a sofa in Northfield, Minnesota, waiting for a plummer to finish his work at my son’s house, before I head back home to Buffalo. May peace be with you as you carry out God’s special purpose in your life today. What that is, I don’t know; and you most likely […]

EARLY MORNING SHOWER Soul = the mind, will, and emotions of every man and woman, boy and girl. Spirit = that place in a believer where the Holy Spirit lives, and the Father and the Son. The rain falling gently on the countryside this morning is like the Living Waters flowing into my soul. As […]

A PARADIGM SHIFT A paradigm shift is a change from one way of thinking to another. Let’s say you have been seeing the world from your point of view. Then one day you choose to see the world, the people you interact with, the circumstances and situations you’re involved in, and all else from God’s […]
