A New Day

The country has decided. Mr. Obama will lead this country for another four years. Whether you voted for him or for Governor Romney, please pray for both men. They campaigned hard for their vision of America and gave their all. Unfortunately in any contest there is a winner and a loser. Mr. Romney lost. His family and Mr. Ryan’s family need  our prayers as they put their lives back together.

Pray for the President that he would look to God for wisdom, depending daily on Him. Pray for our nation to come together and heal the divisions that this political season has exacerbated. We are a great nation with many challenges ahead and we need to come together under God’s good grace that has brought us this far. 

None of us know what the future brings but we do know that God is in control. I wrote a book entitiled, Fear Not Tomorow, God is Already There. That is truth. He stands in the future in all His majesty and holiness. He is still on the throne and our trust must be in Him. “Some trust in chariots, and some in horses; but we will trust in the name of the Lord, our God.” (Psalms 20:7)

Who am I and why am I here?
Back in the 1960s - 19870s there was this "youth revolution". Young people were questioning authority, rejecting authority...many of these youth we labeled, "hippies". They  threw over the conventional and traditional to come up with their own "relative" truth. I suppose each generation has their o

O.T. God vs. N.T. God
A friend recently asked me how I reconcile the vengeful, war-like God of the Old Testament with the meek mild Jesus. That is a question that has come through the ages. On the surface it does look like it is almost two different Gods. The God of the Old Testament does rain fire down on sinners. He do

Forgive Again and Again and Again
I am sure you have experienced many occasions when someone has hurt you. Depending on the relationship with that person the hurt was a deep wound or you brushed it off. The ones we can brush off are easier to forgive. Like a friend who is late for an appointment, or a child draws on your freshly pai

Good and Evil
The contrast between evil and good has been in the news and on our front pages this week. It was a thrill to see Dr. Brantley on the news yesterday as he left Emory University Hospital hand in hand with his wife. It is a miracle that he is alive and expected to live a full life. Ebola is a deadly
