    Receiving Admission

    As a teen, I knew I wanted to attend college, so I tried to earn good grades. Later, like many high school seniors, I worked through test exercises to ready myself for entrance exams. I chewed through pencils (and my nails) trying to perfect admissions essays. In the end, this preparation—along with God’s blessing—allowed me to gain access to the school I was hoping to attend.

    His Presence

    The anxious father and his teenage son sat before the psychic. “How far is your son traveling?” the psychic asked. “To the big city,” the man replied, “and he will be gone for a long time.” Handing the father a talisman (a kind of good-luck charm), he said, “This will protect him wherever he goes.”

    I was that boy. However, that psychic and that talisman could do nothing for me. While in that city, I put my faith in Jesus. I threw away the talisman and clung to Christ. Having Jesus in my life guaranteed God’s presence.

    Thirty years later, my father,…

    Sacred Service

    I now rejoice in my sufferings for you, and fill up in my flesh what is lacking in the afflictions of Christ… —Colossians 1:24

I am not referring to the strength of one individual’s personality being superimposed on another, but…

    Dreams

    Shortly after he invented the telephone, Alexander Graham Bell reportedly said, “I do not think I am exaggerating the possibilities of this invention when I tell you that it is my firm belief that one day there will be a telephone in every major town in America.” One telephone in every town? If he only knew. Bell needed to dream bigger.

    “You Are Not Your Own”

    Do you not know that…you are not your own? —1 Corinthians 6:19

    There is no such thing as a private life, or a place to hide in this world, for a man or woman who is intimately aware of and shares in the sufferings of Jesus Christ. God divides the private life of His saints and makes it a highway for the…

    Love and Harmony

    Following the death of my father, some of the children in Uganda I’ve known and worked with for years made signs for me expressing their love and condolences.

    Muddy Thinking

    A woman’s dog ventured out toward the water on the coast of New Zealand. Trailing behind him, the dog’s owner found herself in a “sticky” situation, sinking in mud up to her waist and unable to move.
