God wants His children avoiding cave-ins. I’m not so much referring to a physical cave, but there may be something that has caused you to retreat into a cave of depression or discouragement. The good news is that you can come up and out of that cave of defeat and begin to walk in the freedom of the victory that is yours in Christ.

Keep Your Money in Your Own Pocket

 

Q.  I just filed taxes, and it looks like I’ll get a pretty big refund this year. A friend of mine told me I should adjust my withholding, so I don’t get a refund. This seems pretty dumb to me. Why would I change my withholdings when I’m getting money back?

God is in Your Pain

Written by Pastor Kemi Searcy

I have been greatly perplexed lately, in need of a six-figure financial miracle. I had no idea of any possible source of that amount of money. It all came crashing down on me last weekend when I realized that the deadline for the money was quickly approaching. I couldn’t sleep well and woke up with a bad headache.

All Lives Should Shine

Written by Bob Crittendon

A few years ago, Joni Eareckson Tada shared a radio commentary which encouraged listeners to allow the light of Christ to shine even through hardships.  She included a reference to a passage in Philippians 2.  She writes:

 

The apostle Paul is writing from a dark

prison cell and he tells his friends: “Do everything without complaining or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which you shine like stars in the universe...”

 

For years, the Gerber company has been displaying the famous baby picture on its products. And, now, each year, the company, according to Bill Partyka, chief executive and president of Gerber, “...we choose the baby who best exemplifies Gerber’s long-standing heritage of recognizing that every baby is a Gerber baby...”

That quote is from a Townhall.com story about the latest Gerber Spokesbaby, Lucas Warren, who was selected from 140,000 entrants.  Lucas is very unique - he has Down Syndrome.

Dark Night of the Soul

Written by Sandra (Sam) Belkofer

In Christian theology, there is something called “dark night of the soul”. This refers to a feeling of despair and no known way to end suffering.  This term is also used in in the world of psychological dynamics seen as depression, despair and anxiety when they become so severe that they interfere with having a life that has moments of joy as well as difficulties.  There are many perspectives of “a dark night of the soul,” but as a therapist and a Christian, I have come to view a feeling of separation from God as a “dark night of the soul”.

Sunlight and Butterfly Dust

Written by Sam Whatley

Butterflies are beautiful, but fragile. In fact, it has been said that if you touch a butterfly’s wings the creature may actually die. In the past few years, biologists have discovered why that’s true. If you catch a butterfly and release it, you will see a bright yellow or green iridescent dust on your hand. That shining dust is critical to the butterfly’s ability to fly. Without it, it cannot live.

Faith at Work

  • Molly Stone, Executive Director, The Wellness Coalition

    RRJ:  Molly, as Executive Director at The Wellness Coalition, what does your job entail?

     

    Molly:  The Wellness Coalition is a nonprofit organization that works to get people the healthcare they need. We help uninsured adults connect with a doctor, apply for medication assistance, and learn how to manage chronic diseases like diabetes and hypertension. We also offer wellness classes on diabetes prevention and chronic disease management. Healthcare access and literacy is a major need in our community, and uninsured adults will frequently use the emergency room for regular care instead of seeing a doctor. That is not good for the hospitals or the patients. We try to break that cycle by providing resources and education to improve our clients’ health and quality of life.
