Building Bridges Between Wealthy & Poor — While Building Homes

It’s not hard to imagine Jesus volunteering with Habitat for Humanity. After all, he was a carpenter. He would have been right at home in the Uptown neighborhood of Memphis this week, working alongside everyday people to provide affordable homes for the poor. I could easily imagine him passing a hammer to country music stars […]


When You Love God, But Not Church

The one place that every person, especially every Christian, should be made to feel comfortable is church.  So, why is it the one place so many people try to avoid?  I’m not talking about non-believers.   I’m not talking about “heathens”.  Why is it that believers of the Word, followers of Christ, Christians don’t want […]


No One Likes a Tattletale

So, what do you think? With God on our side like this, how can we lose? If God didn’t hesitate to put everything on the line for us, embracing our condition and exposing himself to the worst by sending his own Son, is there anything else he wouldn’t gladly and freely do for us? And […]


Don't Look Back

For the past month or so I’ve studied a different woman in the bible.  This past week I studied the story of Lot’s wife.  Her story teaches a very important lesson:  don’t look back.  It certainly wasn’t my first encounter with this story.  Like many of you, I’ve heard this story many times.  I’ve always […]


What Is The Difference Between a “Sin” and a “Mistake?”

“What is the difference between a sin and a mistake?” From time to time, I’ll post that question on the “A Message From God” Facebook page (www.facebook.com/amessagefromgod). Of course, I have my own thoughts, and generally get into those after my readers respond. For many, it comes down to intention vs. ignorance. “When you know […]


Expanding Your Circle of Care

I had a cool thing happen to me recently. Well, the cool thing really happened to my 93-year old dad and I just came along for the ride. For someone of his age, he’s in great shape. Surprisingly to many, he still drives although he doesn’t go too many places — the local library to… […]


A Farewell Letter to Fear

Dear Fear: I’ve decided that it’s time for you and me to part ways.  You’ve been a controller in my life for years, and frankly, I’m over it.  You never bring anything good to me.  In fact, I came up with an acronym for you, Faith Erased And Removed.  I tell people all the time […]


Finding God at Zero

Since we have been made right with God by our faith, we have peace with God. This happened through our Lord Jesus Christ, who through our faith has brought us into that blessing of God’s grace that we now enjoy. And we are happy because of the hope we have of sharing God’s glory. We also […]


My Season of Singleness: The Bitter and The Sweet

I just celebrated another birthday; my 38th to be exact.  Thinking back ten years, I’m not sure that I saw my life the way that it is now.  I never thought I’d be 38 and unmarried.  SINGLE.  I say it as if it’s a dirty word.  There are days that I bask in my singleness.  […]


Pray With Your Actions

How do you pray? For many of us, the act of going to God in prayer involves closing our eyes, clasping our hands together, submitting ourselves to God and then . . . we start talking. We start telling God what we want, what we’re grateful for, what we’re struggling with, what we need help […]
