How Do I Trust God When I’ve Been Through Devastating Circumstances?

               During a Q&A time with the youth last night, a young lady with a troubled past asked a question which cut straights to the heart of the matter. “How can I trust God when he’s let me go through devastating situations?” Here are some brief thoughts that I hope you too can find helpful in your journey with God.

God gives us many spiritual disciplines for our good. Perhaps one of the most difficult to master is the discipline of waiting. None of us like to wait. We become impatient when the drive through at Starbucks is backed up. We become impatient for our next vacation. We become impatient for the results from the doctor. We become impatient for seasons of unemployment to come to an end. We become impatient for our sanctification to be completed.

As we approach Good Friday, I am reminded of 1 Corinthians 1:18-19.

"18 For the word of the cross is folly to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. 19 For it is written,

       “I will destroy the wisdom of the wise,

and the discernment of the discerning I will thwart.”

Communication Breakdown

               “What we have here is a failure to communicate!” When Natalie and I were in premarital counseling with Dr. Jimmy Agan, he walked us through the different levels of conflict. He said, essentially, there were 5 levels of conflict.

The Semi-Haunted History of Halloween

               Happy Halloween! Or should we call it “All Hallow’s Eve?” Halloween today is assigned many meanings. At its worst, it is a time for heightened occult practices and outright demon worship. At its best, it is a harmless time for kids to dress up as ninjas and princesses, go meet the neighbors, and grab some candy. Whatever your personal conviction is concerning Halloween, the history is interesting and multi-faceted.

The Difference Between Thoughts and Prayers

               We’ve heard a lot about “thoughts and prayers” in the aftermath of the Las Vegas massacre. Many people offered “thoughts and prayers.” Some people were thankful for the “thoughts and prayers.” Others decried the uselessness of “thoughts and prayers.”
