Remembering

Dear Friends, This past Sunday our church celebrated our ten year anniversary. We had a wonderful celebration service – listening to testimonies, watching videos of the life of things the church has experienced these past years, and taking time to remember all that God has done for us in the last decade. As I was preparing for the celebration, God reminded me of Psalm 105:1-5, which says, “Give thanks to the Lord and proclaim His greatness. Let the whole world know what He has done. Sing to Him; yes, sing His praises. Tell everyone about His wonderful deeds. Exult in His holy name; rejoice, you who worship the Lord. Search for the Lord and for His strength; continually seek Him.

That's Why

Dear Friends, This morning I was doing my daily devotional reading, and came across Genesis 12:2, which says, “I will make you into a great nation. I will bless you and make your name great, and you will be a blessing to others.” For those of you who aren't familiar with this passage, God was speaking to Abram before he had been renamed “Abraham”, and God had just told Abram to leave his home and follow Him to a new place that God will show him.

Dear Friends, If you've been checking your inbox for the Plan B devotionals, then you know it's been a while since I've written. Some of that is because of a missions trip I went on last week, and some of it is because - shortly before the missions trip - we took a trip back east for a family reunion. We are finally back, and beginning to settle in to the regular rhythm of life, and I'm thankful to have the chance to write again. While I was traveling, there were several situations that made me think, “That would make a good Plan B devo!”. Unfortunately, I didn't write them down, and now that I'm back there's only one that really stands out to me. I think it’s still fresh in my mind beca
