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.

Have You Felt the Pain Inflicted by the Lord?
My Utmost For His Highest

Have you ever felt the pain, inflicted by the Lord, at the very center of your being, deep down in the most sensitive area of your life? The devil never inflicts pain there, and neither can sin nor human emotions. Nothing can cut through to that part of our being but the Word of God. “Peter was grieved because He said to him the third time, ’Do you love Me?’ ” Yet he was awakened to the fact that at the center of his personal life he was devoted to Jesus. And then he began to see what Jesus’ patient questioning meant.

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…

Our Story Isn't About Us.

It all started in 1938 with a small radio program called Detroit Bible Class. With his gravelly voice, Dr. M. R. DeHaan quickly captured the attention of listeners in the Detroit area, and eventually the nation. Since then, our audience has grown to millions of people around the world who use our Bible-based resources.

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…
