Surprised by God's Word

“As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater, so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.”  Isaiah 55:10-11 (NIV)


I am a pastor and I often quote these verses, but every now and then I am still surprised when I see God’s Word accomplishing far more than I expect. It happened again just last week.

Iron Men Outdoor Ministries, Inc.

In obedience to the mandate of Jesus given in Matthew 28:19:


Make disciples of all nations,” Iron Men Outdoor Ministries commits to the mission of being living examples of and to act upon the seven virtues of their ministry: love, mercy, justice, honesty, faithfulness, integrity, charity, as well as the irrevocable guiding premise of the ministry that the Bible is the inspired word of God and the sole authority for faith, life, and moral guidance. Also the belief that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and the only source of salvation given to man by our Father God in heaven for those who believe. With all this in mind, they therefore commit themselves to compassionately reach out and bless those in need, particularly those who are handicapped, children in need, the impoverished, and the abandoned.

In the field of counseling, one of the most powerful and effective forms of therapy is cognitive behavioral therapy. During this kind of therapy, the clinician helps the client examine deep rooted beliefs for validity/truth or utility/usefulness.


These beliefs may be so ingrained in identity that they are outside of conscious awareness but subconsciously contribute to everyday reactions and major life decisions. These unexamined beliefs or assumptions can trigger maladaptive emotions, physical sensations, behaviors, communications and finally, unpleasant consequences.

The Gospel According to BuzzFeed

The website, BuzzFeed.com posted a video attempting to provide a unique, albeit unbiblical, view of what Christianity is and what Christians believe. First - a little background on BuzzFeed: According to a Business Insider piece, BuzzFeed posted to their website in 2010 that, “We have a big audacious goal of helping creative people launch and spread their ideas across the web. We have been thinking for years about how media spreads on the web, and our technology provides a unique way to launch, track, and accelerate viral content.”

The Unseen Hand

Sometimes God speaks to us through the unusual happenings in nature. We may not, like Moses, see an unconsumed burning bush, but there are natural events that startle us and capture our attention.

I recently witnessed one of those as a leaf suspended in air.

3 Ways to Live with Joy by Tim Challies



Last week I was captivated by a sunrise. I am one of those people who is “early to bed, early to rise” and have watched many sunrises.

I love the dawning of a new day because every day is so full of promise and possibility.


Every sunrise lays a new day before us and asks, “What will you do with this day? What will this day be?”

The Emotional Juggling Act


Women are often told that we are “too emotional.” In response, we often fall into the trap of juggling our emotional life around a fast-paced, dogmatic society that praises sensitivity one day and stoicism the next.

        How can we stop juggling something that clearly we were created to use to benefit the world? Let’s look at a true situation from the “Reality Bible.”

Matt Phillips, M.D., OB/GYN and Associates

RRJ:  You were told the good news of the Scriptures all of your life by godly parents and teachers, but has God’s love and grace always been your primary motivation in life?

My relationship with Jesus began, as all relationships begin, with an introduction. God used so many people in my life to show me Jesus and to introduce me to the only One who can give meaning and purpose in life. Early in my relationship with God I spent my time checking off the boxes of do´s and don’ts of being a Christian, all the while trying to fit into the world.
