Journal Entry for July 11

Our Romanian team has dwindled over the past day or so. Two flew out of Timisoara, one remained at River of Life to donate his maintenance skills for three weeks. Six of us traveled by van to Budapest where three boarded a British Airways jet bound for Vancouver. And the last three – Gene, Kim,… [ read more ]

Women

Women are a fascinating study. Last week, while riding the city train in London, I sat opposite a lady covered in black. Even her hands were gloved. The only exposed part of her body were her eyes. I would have loved to have had the opportunity to ask her about her life – childhood, career,… [ read more ]

Coincidences?

“What a coincidence!” How many times have I heard those words? The older I grow, however, the more I’m convinced there’s no such thing as a mere coincidence. God truly orchestrates the details of our lives to work out His plan and purposes. Ruth’s story is a prime example. Check this out: Ruth 1:22 –… [ read more ]

Reluctant Warriors

You know what baffles me? That God invites humans to participate with Him in building His kingdom. Does He really need our help? I doubt it – He can do anything He chooses whenever He chooses in whatever manner He chooses. Why He entrusts us with such a responsibility and allows us the privilege to… [ read more ]

I Wanna be Like Caleb!

Caleb is one of my all-time favorite OT characters. When Moses appointed him and 11 other men to spy out the Promised Land, he and Joshua were the only two who came back with a “Let’s go for it!” attitude. The others focused on the challenges and bred fear into the Israelites. As a result,… [ read more ]

RSVP to God's Invitation

Luke 14:15 says, “Hearing this, a man sitting at the table with Jesus exclaimed, ‘What a privilege it would be to have a share in the Kingdom of God!’” Jesus responds with the story of a man who prepares a great feast and sends out many invitations. When the preparations were complete, the man sent… [ read more ]

"Go Away, Jesus"

Luke 8:27-37 tells the story of Jesus casting out demons from the man in Gerasenes. A crowd soon heard about the episode and came to see for themselves what had happened. Their response baffles me: “And the whole crowd was afraid…and all the people in that region begged Jesus to go away and leave them… [ read more ]

Fear is a Big Deal, but God is Bigger

Fear is a big deal to most people. That’s nothing new. It was a problem for the Israelites, too. Deuteronomy 7 tells the story of how God commanded the Israelites to conquer seven nations that outpowered them. Perhaps the very thought struck fear into their hearts, and they wondered how in the world they could… [ read more ]
