Books of the Bible: Psalm

Kenneth L. Samuel

No rejection is indicative of our divine destiny. The power of the resurrection is the power to step outside the molds of safe assimilation to be the authentic presence God created us to be.


Matt Laney

You know grief and loss. You've been hurt a thousand times. As impossible as it might feel, trust that blessing is already embracing your anguish and that God will indeed turn the page.


Richard L. Floyd

The metaphorical heart is a matter of life and death. The heart is implicated in the choices of lovers and fools, and who among us hasn't been both at some time in our life?


Kenneth L. Samuel

The season of Lent is the season of love’s endurance. Love can endure disappointment, pain and even disloyalty. But love never endures the separation of termination.


Quinn G. Caldwell

God, your world is full of wonders and mysteries. Let me not be too quick to dismiss them, and let me, at least sometimes, believe them before it’s wise.
