Thanksgiving didn’t originate with man. Long before we were born, God set in motion a reason–and an opportunity–to give thanks. Throughout the Bible, God instructed His people to bring a “thanks” offering. Why give thanks? 1 Chronicles 16:24 says, Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever.”

It’s time for a new book giveaway. I’ve accumulated quite a few good books in the last few years, so I’ll be giving away multiple books occasionally–to make room for others.
Some of these are oldies, but goodies. In other words, they were not necessarily published in 2012, but each book is new. I know the authors, and I’ve enjoyed their books. I hope you will, too! Today’s giveaway includes a novel, a novella, and a non-fiction Christmas book. Read more

If a picture is worth a thousand words, a video is worth even more. During his message as a guest speaker for our church Sunday, Max Lacado showed this you-tube video to illustrate the depth of God’s love and grace for us. I just wanted to pass it on. Whether you’ve seen it or not, it’s worth reviewing often. What a powerful picture of not only a mom laying down her life for her kids, but of a Savior who gave His all for us! Read more

Some of us may feel like Thomas, who questioned the Lord after His resurrection appearance. At times, we too, need to know that Jesus is truly real. Circumstances leave us discouraged, and we soon forget God’s work in our lives. Read more

He conversed with Adam in the first garden. He told Noah to build an ark. He spoke to Moses in a burning bush. He promised Abraham a son. Paul heard His voice on the way to Damascus. But does God still speak to us today? If so, how? When? Where?
Often when people ask this question, they are talking about an audible voice. And God can do that. He can do anything He wants. He’s God. Why then, can’t I hear God speak to me audibly, someone might ask?
I can’t answer questions that the Bible does not make clear. And the way God works is one of those questions. I do think “hearing God speak” may mean different things to different people. To some, it may suggest, “I need answers for my life, or this particular crisis.” Another may say, “I’ve asked God for _________, but He never answers me.
God treats each of us as unique children. None of us are cookie-cutter Christians. Because of that, God doesn’t “speak” the same way to all of us. However, here are eight ways God often uses to communicate with us. Read more
