Blessings in Disguise

I was speaking with a woman at my church recently who had just experienced a period of prolonged job search. Her story was familiar; she was Middle Aged and unexpectedly found herself unemployed. She spent over two years seeking work, praying, seeking God's direction,...

Faith in the Market Place

As a Christian, do you find it difficult to share your faith in your secular job? God calls us to be in the world but not of the world. Evangelism can take on all different shapes and sizes, but most people will respond to it when it’s delivered in a hand shake, a...

Crosswalks, Directions, Choices, Risks

In order to get to my favorite walking trail yesterday, I had to cross a very busy street during rush hour traffic. Knowing that a car could easily hit me, I looked for a designated crosswalk so I could safely cross. Here’s what I know about crosswalks and why I...

Psalm 55:12 Cast your burden on the LORD, and He will sustain you; I believe that I’ve always been pretty up front about how tough job search is. I recently returned from a careers industry convention and was reminded again how difficult job search can be. And I also...

It seems timely, (all be it a few days late) that at the start of 2012, I should be talking about change, new hope, and opportunities that will avail themselves in the New Year. Instead, I want to reflect upon how constant and stable God is. Contrary to some popular...
