Stories of God at Work

from Australia

A broken dream isn’t the greatest tragedy, but a life forever defined by it is. Creating a healthy new normal after the death of a dream is essential. In this condensed version of their documentary, Sheridan and Merryn Voysey understand facing a new normal. In A Journey Through Broken Dreams, they candidly share their struggle with infertility, the decade of medical procedures they endured to try to conceive a child, and the decision to redesign their lives with career changes and a major move to another continent. Their life didn’t go as planned, but ultimately they found peace in their…

The Impoverished Ministry of Jesus
My Utmost For His Highest

“The well is deep”— and even a great deal deeper than the Samaritan woman knew! (John 4:11). Think of the depths of human nature and human life; think of the depth of the “wells” in you. Have you been limiting, or impoverishing, the ministry of Jesus to the point that He is unable to work in your life? Suppose that you have a deep “well” of hurt and trouble inside your heart, and Jesus comes and says to you, “Let not your heart be troubled . . .” (John 14:1). Would your response be to shrug your shoulders and say, “But, Lord, the well is too deep, and even You can’t draw up quietness and comfort out of it.”

Eyes Ahead
Our Daily Journey

Glen, a longtime family friend, took a spill inside his home and fractured his neck. Fortunately, he didn’t need surgery. His doctor fitted him with a neck brace and instructed him not to bend, lift, or turn until his neck had healed. This meant that he had to move his entire body to see anything outside his direct line of sight. He could focus only on what was directly in front of him.

A Consistent Life
Our Daily Bread

While studying the book of Daniel, I was struck by how easily he could have avoided being thrown into the den of lions. Daniel’s jealous rivals in the government of Babylon laid a trap based on his consistent practice of daily prayer to God (Dan. 6:1-9). Daniel was fully aware of their plot and could have decided to pray privately for a month until things settled down. But that was not the kind of person he was.

The Art Of Constructive Criticism
Sports Spectrum

I’m fascinated by what the television networks call “analysts” or “color commentators.” Their role is to inform the viewer about what is happening and why it is happening that way. Sometimes they do that through praise, and sometimes they do that through criticism. Both have their place—but they must be measured. I think about this,…

Welcome Sounds
Sports Spectrum

On Monday, we discussed the unhappy sounds of conflict that marked the start of the NASCAR season in Daytona. Today, however, we want to consider some much happier sounds—the sounds of Major League Baseball spring training. The pop of mitts and the crack of bats do more than just inform us that America’s pastime is…

Sounds Of Conflict
Sports Spectrum

In spite of the frigid temperatures that stretched all the way into Florida, the NASCAR season began this past week—and it was marked by lots of sounds. Of course, there was the sound of the 900+ horsepower engines roaring to life. There was also the sound of drivers and crew chiefs describing their off-season activities…

There’s often confusion on what the fruit of the Spirit is and is not. It’s not a list of instructions of how we should live; rather the fruit are qualities we exhibit when we are empowered by the Holy Spirit. We are set free to live a new life in Christ, no longer indulging in selfish desires but enabled to serve…
