When life is chaotic, painful, or full of uncertainty, it is easy to become overwhelmed. Exhaustion wears a person down, both physically and spiritually. And without time in the Word, depression is certain to knock on our door. It takes both physical and spiritual strength to weather a storm, and we require nourishment to persevere a lengthy or intense battle. Without spiritual manna, the devil can easily establish footholds in our walk with Christ. Footholds …

Do you have a tendency to criticize others? Have you ever frowned on a different approach some co-worker selected to meet a challenge, even though they were successful?

  Years ago, I lived in Arizona. I never adapted to the climate and I cannot understand the “desert rats” that adore the 118-degree weather. I hated the heat and missed the beauty of tall oak and maple trees. I was born in Michigan and for sixteen years I enjoyed and welcomed each distinct season, especially spring.

2/6/2017 I also thought about the human condition–how God proves to people that they are like animals.                     [Ecclesiastes 3:18; NLT] My adventure in prayer last night could be called, “I slept while my spirit meditated.” Several days ago my wife and I had a couple over for supper, and after eating some of the best lasagna I’ve ever put in my mouth, we sat down …
