Jesus ... Single Like Me: He Understood Loss

What is God telling you about yourself in regards to loss? Thank you, Lord, that through understanding loss you created a bridge to reach us so that one day we will spend eternity with you in heaven where there is no loss.

Turn Your Disappointments into a Miracle

We often think we know what is best for our lives and put pressure on ourselves to "make it happen," and when our expectations fall short we become disappointed. However, if we look beyond ourselves and are willing to be used by God, we may be surprised at the miracles we may see.

What a Woman Brings to Marriage

The Proverbs 31 woman is great and all. But the ultimate example who should inform what I bring to marriage is Christ. He modeled so well the type of intangibles that I hope to one day bring to a union with my future husband.

No Man Is an Island

If you are missing a parental figure or mentor in your life—seek someone willing to fill that role. If you don't have a friend—go and be that friend to someone else. If you feel you are the only one on your island—start walking because there are many others who share your feelings.

He Said-She Said: What's Up with "Just Friends"?

This month in "He Said-She Said," a reader writes: "I meet a lot of women in particular who are fixated it seems on having 'just friends' relationships. What's that all about?" See how "he" and "she" have answered in response.

The Relational Economy: Deficit Living - Part 2

The truth is that this side of heaven we all live with a deficit. We all walk with a limp that testifies to sin in the world—that all is not as it should be. We are not who we should be, could be, or will be and this has nothing to do with our relational status.

Jesus ... Single Like Me: He Was Grateful

As a single adult, I get so focused on the future that I forget what God has given me now. Jesus lived so much of the lives that we live today as single adults. So how was he grateful for where God had him, in his singleness? And, am I grateful as well?

The Single Life: Table for One

You're hungry, but your cupboards could pass for Old Mother Hubbard's so cooking is out. What you really want is a delicious meal served by someone else. That's what restaurants are for, right? Ah, but you don't have anyone to go to dinner with you. Now what do you do?

The Relational Economy: Deficit Living - Part 1

Sometimes the thought of losing again is just too much to bear. You may know something is not profitable, but in your deficit living just want anything to work out. You may just want to win, so you fight well beyond the point of good sense until the blisters form on your heart.

Don't Let Your Fears Lead to a Life Filled with Regrets

Don't allow your fears or doubts to rob you from your heart's desire. Don't end up like the other disciples, who cowered in the boat and followed the group. Get up, take a step out and trust God like your life depended upon it and like there is no tomorrow.

He Said-She Said: A Past History of Homosexuality

For five years a woman in her mid-40s has been dating a pastor who has a past history of homosexuality, but now she is "frozen" in her tracks. "Do I continue the relationship or do I avoid the risk?" See what "he" and "she" have said in response.

One Wife or None? Singles as Elders

"Husband of one wife." That's how most translations of the Bible render the Greek phrase from 1 Timothy 3:2, where the apostle Paul describes prerequisites for being a church elder. But what biblical principle did Paul really want to convey with these three words?

The Relational Economy: Identity Theft

If the process of relational discovery costs you your soul, it is too much. You must believe with a stubborn confidence that the you God has made, and is making, is beautiful. You must believe this despite what the failures might tell you. You must believe this despite words to the contrary.

The Single Life: Bible Study, Solo Style

If you choose to study the Bible alone, you get to make all the decisions. What to study, when, where, even why is up to you. The first—and probably the biggest—decision is what to study. Pray for guidance, then consider this: do you want to go with a teacher, a topic, or a territory?

Jesus ... Single Like Me: He Dealt with Temptation

Because Jesus was single like me, he was tempted. He suffered just like we do. He knows what we are going through, and he encourages us each day to stay the course, choosing what is best versus what is now—to learn from our mistakes and to help others in their journey.

The Relational Economy: The Vault

Fear and worry can cause us to hide the deepest part of us in a safe deposit box, but that box does not sit out in the open. If we have been deeply wounded, we will place the box in a vault with walls twenty feet thick and a series of alarms. In essence, we will hide ourselves away.

Solo Zone: When Opportunity Knocks

So maybe not everybody can just go away and leave everything behind. But for one church choir director and organist who is making the most of his season of singleness, taking time off to study in the Old Country can't be beat for real-world immersion in the classicist aesthetic.

What Walls Are You Hiding Behind?

Many of us have lived with walls for so long we have become accustomed to and comfortable residing behind them. They have become part of our life and who we are, and then we question why we can't get closer to people or experience a fuller, more joyful life.

Example: "Gen 1:1" "John 3" "Moses" "trust"
