Did you know that if you're the most eloquent preacher/ speaker on the planet and thousands attend your conferences and buy your books, but you don't show God's love to people, God says you are an "annoying distraction". And if you have such a strong faith that you can perform miracles, but you don't love… Continue reading Am I An Annoying Distraction?
Have you ever had one of those moments? A moment when you think, I’ve got a great topic to write about, and then as you start typing, it just feels flat?
That happened to me today. I thought I knew exactly what I wanted to write about but as I started typing it just felt all wrong.
In typical fashion, I sat and thought for a good long time about what else I could write about, but nothing was coming to me. I was Googling the heck out of the words November, Blog Topics, and Post Ideas, but nothing was striking my fancy, nothing!
Then I thought to myself I cannot be the only blogger on this planet that goes through this. Nor can I be the only one who wonders if there are others who go through this.
So I’m sure you’ll never guess what I’m going to…

“God is the only one who can make the valley of trouble a doorof HOPE.” – CATHERINE MARSHALL
What exactly is hope? Here’s a biblical definition:
My hope is in the Lord. He alone can bring about healing for me. To trust in His sovereign timing means that I hope in Him, looking upon Him with expectant eyes of faith, as I patiently bear my current circumstances ordered by Him and ultimately fixed through Him.

Over a year and a half ago, my doctor told me something that will…

When Abraham was 75, God promised to give him a child. Twenty-five years later, when Abe was 100 years old, Isaac was born.
Gee, why the rush, Lord?
Hey, to God 1,000 years is like a day (2 Peter 3:8), so for him 25 years is no more than a longish lunch break: “Oops, gotta go, Gabriel, I promised Abe a baby.”
Foom! Cue baby!
And yet Abraham “never wavered in trusting the promise of God.” (Romans 4:20-22) I completely understand this because I am an Abraham-like model of godly patience.
But I have learned a few things about “waiting on the Lord” (Isaiah 40:31). I’ve learned that if we’re not careful we can miss what really matters while we’re waiting for what we think matters. During the years I strove to make it in the movie biz, facing disappointment after disappointment, my wife and I created…

Moody I believe that today, more than ever, God is calling us to praise and worship Him with our whole heart. The Bible says, "Enter his gates with thanksgiving and… Continue reading Praising God Through Music
Sometimes God has a plan that is nothing like our expectations. If only we would just trust Him, but instead we think we know what He should do. Learn how God just might do things in a completely different way than you expect! Meet Naaman, the Commander of the Army of the King of Syria,… Continue reading That’s Not What I Expected!
Today, I begin my post with worship. Precious Jesus, we surrender. https://youtu.be/s7jXASBWwwI The Lord keeps bringing this Scripture to my mind: "I have found David son of Jesse, a man after my own heart; he will do everything I want him to do." Acts 13:22 Isn't the key to being a person "after God's own… Continue reading All To Jesus I Surrender
