"Rejoice Always!"

This past week I stopped by a local radio station for their 3-day sharathon.  During my visit, I met a very special woman of God.  In the course of my short conversation with her, I learned that earlier this year her 23-year old son died in a motorcycle accident.  But if that wasn’t enough grief to endure, a month later her husband left her for a younger woman.  My heart sank.

 

Scripture says we’re to “rejoice always.”  And here in front of me was a woman doing just that.  She had every reason to be bitter and angry ...

Perfectionistic Tendencies

If you're a perfectionist, you can probably relate with my feelings: I like to get things done perfectly, first try, no mistakes, and way before deadline. How often does that actually happen? Well, ok...never. But I still try-it's a bit of an obsession really.

That's why what Mark Earley shared during devotions this week at Ambassador really struck a cord with me-and perhaps you'll feel the same. To get the full impact, click here to listen to what he shared. But as a recap, he basically explained that the first half of his life, he ...

And, we know that what they ...

"We are honored to partner with ROH in events that impact eternity."

A station manager's response upon hearing the highlights from last weekend's Revive Our Hearts Conference with Nancy Leigh DeMoss in Springfield, VA.  God met powerfully and personally with the almost 1,000 women who attended.

Here is what some of the women said after leaving the conference!

  • "I was getting extremely angry at you as you taught. I did wave the 'white flag,' but I didn't want to do it. I know I must surrender." -Rhoda

Franklin Graham in China

It's the start of a new week and as I work on my to-do-list, I recall the message my pastor shared on Sunday  . . . "Greatness in His Kingdom is defined by your faithfulness to the assignment specifically given to you."   

Sometimes our assignments are in our neighborhood - the grocery clerk having a bad day, the homeless person on the corner..   Sometimes, our assignments are clear across the world - in China as the Graham family knows all too well.

Continuing the Graham family legacy of sharing God's Word and love with the Chinese people, Franklin Graham proclaimed the Gospel this ...
