Prayers Reaching the Ends of the Earth

Michael, a colleague of mine, emailed me today that his wife's father was in the hospital with a massive heart attack.  Last night he coded several times.

Flight Delayed

Well here I sit on a plane heading to California. We're delayed. This certainly does not surprise me considering the weather throughout the USA. I'm thankful it is delayed and not cancelled.

Backed into a Corner?

Life can sometimes make me feel like I'm backed into a corner, especially when I take my eyes off of God. Therefore encourage one another with these words. (1 Thessalonians 4:18 NIV) Early yesterday morning my dear friend called me knowing that I felt this way. She had just finished praying for me during her …
