THE SAFEST PLACE

“Abba, Father,” He cried out, “everything is possible for you. Please take this cup of suffering away from me. Yet I want your will to be done, not mine.” Mark 14:36 Have you ever had those moments in life when things were expanding, yet with that came intense pressure and challenges? Moments when you knew you were headed in the right direction, but things were coming against you and the pressure seemed super intense? Deep inside you knew you were on the right track, but at the same time you were experiencing opposition that came at you from multiple directions all at[…]

RECALL

“Your unfailing love, O Lord, is as vast as the heavens; your faithfulness reaches beyond the clouds.” Psalm 35:5 My in-laws, my wife, and I were all sitting around the table enjoying dinner together and my mother-in law asked me a question, which I really can’t even remember, and 45 minutes later I wrapped up the answer. LOL! Somewhat apologetically, and feeling a little embarrassed, I told them I was sorry for going into such a long story, to which they were very kind and said they really enjoyed hearing every detail. It all left me feeling unsure of who may have[…]

NOT THAT FAR

“Realizing how much the man understood, Jesus said to him, ‘You are not far from the Kingdom of God.’ And after that, no one dared to ask him any more questions.” Mark 12:34 Although I’ve flown several times, I would never consider myself a pilot. However, in hearing pilots explain navigation, there is a simple rule to follow. If your desire is to get from point A to point B, then your coordinates must be precise. To hear a pilot explain it, you don’t have to be but a just degree or two off to end up at the completely wrong destination,[…]

DIVINE REICPT

“I tell you the truth, you can say to this mountain, ‘May you be lifted up and thrown into the sea,’ and it will happen. But you must really believe it will happen and have no doubt in your heart.”  Mark 11:23 Walmart is doing their best to win the battle for the online shopper. They realize the sophisticated shopper wants to avoid the inconvenience of shopping and goes to the store only when necessary. So, Walmart has created what it calls the “Pickup Tower” and it’s pretty cool. When I saw one in our local store, my first thought was,[…]

HUMANLY IMPOSSIBLE

“Jesus looked at them intently and said, ‘Humanly speaking, it is impossible. But not with God. Everything is possible with God’.” Mark 10:27 The whole congregation stared in amazement as the world’s one-time strongest man, Paul Anderson, had a whole group of men sit on top of a large, ruggedly-built wooden table. As everyone wondered if he would really be able to lift it, to my surprise, he reached over to the front row pew and grabbed me, a first grader, and stood me up on the center of the table. Then, sure enough, to everyone’s amazement, Mr. Anderson went underneath[…]

GUARANTEED FIRST

“He sat down, called the twelve disciples over to him, and said, “Whoever wants to be first must take last place and be the servant of everyone else.” Mark 9:35 The Daytona 500 was kicking off the NASCAR season and I had looked forward to watching it all week long. I hadn’t watched a NASCAR race in years, and this one sure didn’t disappoint. As the field had been narrowed down to just a handful of cars due to so many crashes, Denny Hamlin took the checkered flag for his second Daytona 500 Championship. And, multi-car team owner, Joe Gibbs, celebrated[…]

A HEART TO SEE

“Then Jesus placed his hands on the man’s eyes again, and his eyes were opened. His sight was completely restored, and he could see everything clearly.” Mark 8:25 IIn our modern age, texting and other messaging tools like email have become, for many, the preferred choice of communication. But, although convenient, these platforms make it hard to express one’s true feelings and heart in a conversation. So often, true sentiment and heartfelt meaning gets lost in translation. Without hearing one’s tone of voice and seeing their body language, it can be easy to miss what’s really being said.   Jesus often[…]

NEVER UNLUCKY IN LOVE

“Three things will last forever—faith, hope, and love—and the greatest of these is love.”  1 Corinthians 13:13 The online dating site, eharmony, has a set of ten rules for those feeling “unlucky in love.” One of these rules states the following: “If men aren’t interested in you, it probably isn’t because you aren’t a supermodel, it is probably because they can see how you feel about yourself. Think about how people are drawn to someone with confidence. A person with confidence seems to love life. … If you don’t feel confident, fake it until you do.” I’m not so sure about the “fake it[…]

DON’T STOP

“Wherever he went—in villages, cities, or the countryside—they brought the sick out to the marketplaces. They begged him to let the sick touch at least the fringe of his robe, and all who touched him were healed.” Mark 6:56  Of all the places you would expect Jesus to be received in His calling and destiny, you would think that would be in His own hometown. He had played in those streets, studied in the local school, and I’m sure had gone with his mom to the market to shop many times. People around town knew Him as Mary and Joseph’s[…]

YOUR SOZO STORY

“But Jesus said, ‘No, go home to your family, and tell them everything the Lord has done for you and how merciful he has been’.”  Mark 5:19 Mark chapter five tells the story of three different people with four different needs. The man from the region of Gerasenes had been bound and tormented by a legion of demons for years. He was undoubtedly the worst possible case around and no one could do a thing for him. That was until Jesus stepped onto the shore and brought instant deliverance to this man, forever changing his life. This man encountered the pure grace[…]
