Everyday—Encouragement in Chalk

“Everyday” is a series of Thursday posts this month looking at God’s presence in everyday life. Someone scrawled a message in chalk on their driveway. Two Bible verses, Joshua 1:19” and Proverbs 3:5-6. It wasn’t a random act. The couple living at the house had set the chalk out for people to draw or leave […]

God’s Power Assist

You don’t always appreciate what you have until it’s gone. That thought occurred to me last week when the power steering went out in our car. I had to drive the car home and let me tell you, it was a workout just to turn a corner. Even trying to keep the car going straight […]

Bringing Light into the Pit

I was reading Romans chapter 12 and verse 12 caused me to pause: “rejoicing in hope, persevering in tribulation, devoted to prayer (NASB).” I reread the verse and noticed how “persevering in tribulation is framed by “rejoicing in hope” and “devoted to prayer.” Hope and prayer are a way to endure tribulations or trials. Trials […]

Bow of Hope

The storm clouds gather above. Rain pours down, drenching. The waters threaten to rise and overtake. I am bowed down with sorrow. “For the waves of death encompassed me; The torrents of destruction overwhelmed me (2 Samuel 22:6, NASB).” Fear fills me as the storm persists. “Therefore my spirit is overwhelmed within me; My heart […]

Struggling for Purpose

We struggle for years, working to serve the Lord. Yet there are moments when setbacks can cause us to wonder why we expended so much effort. It can seem like it is wasted. Isaiah expressed this sentiment: “But I said, ‘I have toiled in vain, I have spent My strength for nothing and vanity (Isaiah […]

You dear God are in all things. Your greatness knows no bounds. Even the vastness of the heavens cannot contain you. You are all knowing, eternal, ever present. Next to you I am but a tiny grain of sand on an expansive beach. Yet you hold that grain of sand in the palm of your […]
