Why Do I Need to Stop and Smell the Roses? A look at what God is calling me to do for the next few weeks

I just have to write. It’s funny. As I do my taxes (ugh) I keep having the urge to write something. And my computer is right here. So — here I go. The Drive to Excel The past few days I realized that I have fallen into the “drive to excel”. That’s not good — really it isn’t. At least for me.

How and Why We Need to be Part of Jesus’ Story

How God Can Speak Through Art Challenge: My art challenge (thank you Meg Konovska) is to draw with only 33 dots to start. Eyes closed I put 33 dots on the page. I open eyes and draw a contour — without crossing any lines. And then see what I can see. Outline of the dots. The pencil is so light that it’s hard to get a good photo.

What’s the Best Reason for Praying?

A Simple Message about Prayer Why Do We Pray? This is probably the most asked question put into searches on prayer. People might say we pray for protection, good health, strength, and comfort; a good job, a better relationship, a new friend; housing, food, shelter. What we are really doing when we pray is building a relationship with God. Think about this — the people that you know the best, how did you get to be such good friends? You have similar interests and enjoy spending time together, right? It is exactly the same with God. When you spend time with Him...
