drawn

After I finished speaking at a church one Sunday on how the cross shows that God can redeem our broken dreams and suffering, a guy came up to me wanting to talk. “I haven’t been to church in 26 years,” he said. “I’ve just been through a divorce and a business failure—I have lots of... read more »

the silence of Jesus

Silence. That’s all he gave them. Silence. And some strange scribbling in the sand. He’d been so vocal just a few moments before—sitting down, in the customary way, to teach the crowds gathered around Him in the temple. He’d spoken calmly but boldly then, passionately but enigmatically,... read more »

father of lies

Paulo Coelho’s book The Pilgrimage recounts the story of Coelho walking the famous Camino pilgrimage route between France and Spain with a guide. I bought the book, but I wasn’t prepared for what I read. “There are basically two spiritual forces on our side,” the guide tells Paulo early in... read more »

dog whisperer

My young nieces recently introduced me to a favorite TV show of theirs: The Dog Whisperer. In the series, an animal behaviorist named Cesar Millan gives advice to pet owners who have unruly dogs. We soon became hooked on the show. It didn’t take too many episodes to recognize, however, that... read more »

who sinned?

“God has told me why your skin cancer hasn’t been healed,” the woman said to my friend. Really? he thought. Having suffered through two failed operations to remove the cancer from his face, my friend was desperate for a reason why. “God has told me it’s one of three things,” she... read more »

silencing the barren womb

Dear Sheridan, I know that you and your wife have never been able to have children. My husband and I haven’t been able to either, and we’ve tried almost everything to do so. The hardest thing I find is that the pain and the longing never seem to go away. I resonate with what Proverbs 30 says:... read more »

in the café

Crystal stares out the café window, wondering if life will ever improve. Five men, two kids, all by age 29. She’s lonely and wonders if man no. 6 will make things better. Jesus walks through the café door and sits down at Crystal’s table. “I could really go for a coffee,” He says with a... read more »

He knows you

He knows you. He knows every microcosm and nanosecond of your existence—every cell, atom, and molecule; every interest, weakness, and achievement; every hope, dream, and grief. He knows every movement you’ll make today (Psalm 139:2-3)—every action, step, and pause for rest; every blink,... read more »

why didn’t He protect us?

“Our lives began to fall apart when my daughter took her life,” the woman told me during a break in the conference we were both attending. “And then our second daughter spiraled into depression and started to ‘self-harm.’ After several months we discovered the reason why: While my... read more »

imperfectly acceptable

When it is first read, it seems like a love story. In truth, it’s the record of what might have been one of David’s most heartless acts. David had been at war with King Saul (2 Samuel 3:1). After Saul’s death, his field commander Abner decided to switch sides and support David’s claim to the... read more »
