Divine Appointments

For the first time in almost 63 years, the "Hour of Decision®," featuring Billy Graham will not air in its regular time slot this coming weekend.

Instead, a special My Hope America with Billy Graham program called Defining Moments, will be broadcast in its place on the nearly 600 radio stations nationwide that air the weekly program featuring timeless Billy Graham messages.

"To the best of our knowledge, it's the first time since its debut on Nov. 5, 1950, that Hour of Decision® has stepped aside for any other program," Jim Kirkland, director of radio at the Billy Graham ...

The Heart of Submission

Submission is not always an easy thing for us women to grasp.  Me especially.  I didn't marry until I was 36.  Up until that time, I was in control of my life (or at least I thought I was).  And while over the years God has revealed to me through His Word (and His people) what it means to surrender and be a wife that glorifies Him, admittedly every now and then "control" rears its ugly head. This past weekend was no exception!

And just as timely as ever, God provides me with the instruction I need.  Coming up ...

Preparing for Christmas Now?

As I was listening to "Grace to You®" on my commute into work today, it was interesting to note that the study all this week is focused on Christmas.  Granted, most of us are already thinking (and shopping for) holiday decorations and gifts, but some folks may ask "What could be gained from a Christmas study this far in advance?"

BibleJohn MacArthur explains this is not the typical narrative of Bethlehem that listeners will hear.  Instead it's "an effort to uncover the spiritual dynamics at work on the divine level as Christ, the Son of God, comes to Earth ...

Transformation

BeforeI remember the day I received my new prosthetic arm. I was in high school and wanted so very badly to look like everyone else.

The doctors promised this arm would look almost like the real thing and I was excited to finally see it after all the castings, appointments, fittings and therapy.

I put it on and looked at myself in the mirror. Two arms - wow. It did look almost real. The new technology looked amazing and I was so excited to go back to school and show my friends (and my "not friends").

I felt transformed. New ...

“Is God Good When Life Isn’t?”

Is Good Good?We were nearing the end of the second year of my husband's unemployment - with no hopes of a job on the horizon.

Discouraged and feeling pretty hopeless, we cried out to the Lord.

Where are you Lord? What more can we do? What will our future look like?

We were facing the possibility of losing our home and it felt like the entire world was crashing in around us. Paralyzing, suffocating fear and sadness was trying to overshadow the truth we knew and were trying so hard to cling on to.

That God was good. Even when life was ...
