Have you ever just wished you could get past today so you could get onto the blessings of tomorrow? You’ve thought the future will be much better when you have a nicer house, when you have a nicer child, when you have a nicer job. […]
In 2010, I read Tramp for the Lord by Corrie ten Boom. In the book, Corrie tells about a single missionary who left her home and possessions to go to China. “Are you not afraid?” a friend asked. “I am only afraid of one thing” […]

“Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete not lacking anything.” (James 1:1-4) For a couple years […]
In 2011 NBC News aired a story about an unemployed man who was mining for gold and diamonds on a busy sidewalk outside a handful of prominent Manhattan jewelry stores. The news showed him peering into a crack in the sidewalk while holding a magnifying […]
