God’s Faithfulness

The faithfulness of God continues to amaze me. When I was younger in my faith I would associate His faithfulness with favor, success, progress in my life. When situations and circumstances would happen the way I hoped I could “sense,” God’s faithfulness. As I continue to grow, I see His faithfulness is so much deeper…

The Cornerstone

John 8:1-11 is a beautiful story of the redemption from the law to grace. Jesus at the time was in the temple courts and started to teach. As this was happening the religious scholars and the Pharisees attempted to interrupt his teaching and condemn a woman who was caught in adultery. They wanted to bring…

Melted Crayons and Warm T-shirts

Some of the best childhood memories I have, involved melted crayons and warm t-shirts. My Grandparent’s house (my dad’s parents), has woven into my memory simplistic joy from being a child. Every time I entered their house I felt peace. There was never a moment or time that I remember sensing tension or stress. When…

Excellence

This morning, I was made aware of the excellence it takes to be an IVF doctor. The culmination of those that helped me have decades of hard work, study, possible all nighters, money, time,  sacrifice, tears, sweat and dedication when they wanted to may be give up.  Its for the will of God, the plan…

Gratitude

Hope

Hope is a perplexing rest. It requires the heart and mind to believe in things that have not manifested and positively look forward to a future event without in some cases any evidence of it to transpire. As I write about hope I feel the close connection to faith.

God’s ways of doing life are really best. Usually they require more discipline, some sacrifice and the road to His best are not always easy. Just in writing this now the obvious shouts at me. God’s ways are best because He created life.

Obedience

With a surrendered heart to the Lord there is a grace of obedience. Think of some of the best relationships you see between a child and a parent. Those relationships most likely represented a mutual love, honor, respect. The parent eager to bless the child with gifts of blessings, love and correction. The child eager to please the parent with heartfelt obedience and longing to honor their parent. God in His mercy gave us His Son Jesus Christ to redeem our lost world.
