    Faith Beyond What’s Comfortable

    I don’t like feeling in need. I like to have everything together. I like being the strong one. I like having the right word for the right person at the right time. I like giving. I like handling things well. I like knowing what my day holds. I like convenience. I like knowing what is happening. Knowing things makes me feel good. Having a handle on life makes me feel comfortable. But, is comfort what Jesus was after? I bet many of the disciples didn’t feel comfortable when they left their fishing business behind to follow Jesus. I bet Paul felt anything but comfortable when he fell off that horse…

    3 Ways to Love God More

    I say after a scrumptious dinner to my friend, “Let me get those dishes for you.” I then proceed to clean the whole table, scrub every dish, get everything dried off and put into place. Pans are cleaned. Pots are put back away. That friend looks up and says, “Thanks, Kelly.” Yet, for another friend, on a different night, I do the same thing. Her response? “Wow, Kelly. You are amazing. I feel so loved and so appreciated. I am so thankful. I am so touched.” What’s the difference? The difference is loving people the way they feel loved. After reading the book, The Five Love Languages, I learned there…

If it looks dark and dim when you take off, you just have to go higher. There, the sun is bright!” The man had a point. What he said was not only a lesson in the natural, but in the spiritual. Above every dark cloud of uncertainty about the future, above every relational problems, above financial concerns, above health issues, remains the Son.

    TobyMac Featured on Good Morning America

    This week, TobyMac was featured on Good Morning America to talk about his new album Life After Death and how the death of his son Truett influenced the record. When asked how the death of his son affected his faith, Toby responded, “It rocked it for a while. I didn’t walk away, I just kind of made a deal with God. I go, ‘I’m going to trust you through this. I’m going to try.’ I gave Him a chance, is how I say it. It might be a little dishonoring, I don’t mean it to be, but I gave Him a chance. And in that time, He was kind.” TobyMac’s…
