There’s a long list of synonyms for the word indecision. Hesitation Ambivalence Unsure Vacillate Oscillate Waver Teeter Falter My favorites? Shillyshally and Dillydally We’re wrapping up our series on fasting from things that are bad for us by unpacking the good God has in store for us when we fast from indecision. Recently, I had lunch with a friend. We agreed that often in life, one decision can have ripples. Tiny...

I admire risk-takers. Partly because I've never been much of one and partly because I'm married to one! Recently, I was parked in the story of Jonathan scaling a cliff so he could all but single-handedly attack a Philistine outpost. Risk-taker. Umm. Yeah. I’d say so.

Chip says that we can learn all...

Did you know that there is a fantastic promise to prayer? My knee-jerk reaction when I hear the words promise and prayer in the same sentence is the less than commendable thought, “What’s in it for me?!” It’s like the “Christmas” of prayer. “What’s in the box, Lord?!” “I hope it’s something that was on my list!” There is indeed something God...

This series on prayer is blowing my mind. We're learning how important it is to surrender our will when we pray. WHAT we pray for. HOW we hope our prayers are answered. WHEN we hope our prayers are answered. All these things must be given over to His will. We do not know God's mind, so we cannot fully understand...

Max Lucado says this about prayer: "Some people excel in prayer. They inhale heaven and exhale God. They are the SEAL Team Six of intercession. They would rather pray than sleep." He continues, "Why is it that I sleep when I pray? They belong to the PGA: Prayer Giants Association. I am a card-carrying member of the PWA: Prayer Wimps Anonymous." I...
