You Have but One Task- Be Faithful!

There are two prayers I am currently praying each day. The first is a prayer of serenity by Reinhold Niebuhr: “God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference, living one day at a time; enjoying one moment at a time; taking this world as...   continue

A Life Wholly Dedicated - A tribute to Grandpa Dale

Dale Caleb White went to spend eternity with Jesus on Feb 18, 2023, at the age of 91.  I first met Grandpa Dale at my wedding to Elise.  He actually had a prayer for us.  Over the past 20 years, our relationship shifted in many profound ways.  And it's easy to follow the arc by what I called him.  It...   continue

In Christ, I Have More than Enough

For the past several years, God has given me a phrase to focus on and pray. One year it was, “Be strong and courageous.” In another it was “God is here with me, right now.” In 2021 my phrase was, “Commit your plans to the Lord,” and last year it was “Look back, lean forward.” I use these phrases throughout my day...   continue

God is working in Russia.

A few weeks ago, I met a young woman who is part of our aging out program in Russia. She’s now married with two kids and one on the way. I asked her how long she had known the staff that serves her and the rest of orphans who have aged out of traditional care. She smiled and said, “Since the 5th grade.” When she was in the...   continue

Look back. Lean forward.

For the past several years, I have opened up every journal entry with this word: “Commit."  It's from Proverbs 16:3:  "Commit to the LORD whatever you do, and your plans will succeed." I've attempted to commit all that is before me to God on a daily, even hourly, basis. My family. Our health. Our jobs. Our...   continue

Our foundation is strong. The future is bright because God is still the author.

Welcome to 2022. A new year is here.  So much promise and potential.  Yet so much baggage from the previous years.  For many of us, we are hopeful as we head to the future.  For others, we feel dread.    In addition to the underlying worries, anxieties, and troubles that we all face due to another variant, inflation...   continue

Why I Believe the Best is Yet to Come

2020 is in the rearview.  I think we are all still trying to make sense of it all.  The COVID pandemic and the loss of life, racial tensions, a challenging election season, the struggling economy, and on and on.  I spent the first half of the year studying the early church, which faced similar crises, to see how they...   continue

As Sure as the Sunrise

For the past couple years, I’ve developed the morning routine of heading to the gym for some cardio to jump start my brain.  The cardio is low impact (cycling, elliptical) which is all I can handle since a back injury sidelined me a few years ago.  I didn’t realize how much I was reliant on that habit until the gym...   continue
