Calling on God to be God

Anthony B. Robinson

Moses calls upon God to be God. An incredibly courageous thing to do. Do you and I have the chutzpah, and the faith, to call on God to be God for us?


A Wise and Discerning People

Talitha Arnold

As we gear up for the new school year, we would be smart to heed Moses' urgent command.


A Biblically Bad Hair Day

Michelle L. Torigian

Samson believed that his strength had left him.  His "bad hair day" strangled his confidence.


4.5.8.

Molly Baskette

I've learned a little trick to get God moving into my being at the right pace. It's called the 4.5.8 breath.


Customary-Present

Mary Luti

I don't know any corrupt people who became paragons of virtue overnight.  I do know lots of compromised people leading ethically-ambiguous lives in an ethically-bewildering world, able to do good, but unable to be pure. 


Every Time I Remember You

Ron Buford

When we remember people who have died, simple things remind us of them -- a smell, a song, a flower, the gathering of family and friends. And we remember them. . . . 


Implied Spiritualities and Sneaky Resumes

Donna Schaper

Have you ever noticed yourself sneak yourself into a conversation, sneakily?


A Word for Parents

Anthony B. Robinson

Harsh words, relentless criticism, angry outbursts cripple a child's spirit. Be gentle, patient.


No Fool

Quinn G. Caldwell

So if you're reading this devotional, I assume you are more or less in the "there is a God" camp.  You're no fool.


One Pray at a Time

Maren C. Tirabassi

When it comes to addiction the world is full of misunderstanding.
