“Mommy Left!”

"Mommy Left!" Aside from it being screamed at the top of her lungs for several hours straight, this was one of the hardest things to hear our new four-year-old foster child say. She would not stop screaming, "Mommy Left!" for hours on end. This was the first night all three new children were staying in our home. A new place. Isolated from all they know. While they should have nothing to fear, the air was all but calm.

Faith in the midst of discouragement

Not too long ago, we were able to celebrate with our friends that they were soon to be parents to Baby #5! This time it was going to be a girl! ... All of their kids are adorable and we were excited to join with them and welcome their precious bundle into the world. But, a couple of months later, we heard that this was not going to be a normal pregnancy, but rather a high risk one. That is never easy to hear -- but hey -- we have a Big God! ... We've heard many people who go through this and it all works out in the end. But, as it turns out, this one was not going to be so straightforward as bed rest to keep one's blood pressure down.

Your Calling: “Follow me as I follow Christ”

We are not only called to evangelize, we are called to disciple. This is a much deeper relationship than just sharing the gospel. And if you disciple others, you will most likely get hurt ... understand that if you are going to be a leader, you are going to have to be okay with that. Being vulnerable tears down our defenses. We first have to come to the place where we are vulnerable with God before we can ever be open with people.

Seeds: God’s timing, not Yours

A little science lesson: For new life and growth to happen, literally seeds have to separate from the plant and die. And in that dying of self is where God allows supernatural life to happen — but that only occurs in the right season and at the right time and right conditions. Outside of those circumstances when the seed is brought before it's time, it will not thrive. It only succeeds when allowed to in the conditions God ordained, not what we force otherwise.
