  • It’s Prayer weak for me

    As I write this, I’m sitting in the sanctuary of my church.
    It’s early on a Monday morning, the first day of our prayer week.
    We did this last year, opened the church to anyone who wanted to come and pray. Last year I went every day and prayed fervent, specific prayers, prayed with all my heart, soul, mind and strength.
    As far as I can tell, not one of my prayers was answered the way I had hoped. The situation I had prayed about has changed, but not the way I had imagined and hoped it would.

  • Surrendering to God takes trust

    By Earl Litman, guest columnist
    Cynthiana First Church of God
    This act of personal surrender is called many things: consecration, making Jesus Lord, taking up your cross, dying to self, yielding to the Spirit.
    What matters is that you do it, not what you call it. When I played sports I gave everything. It’s the same with God. God wants your life, all of it – 95 percent is not enough.
    Our total surrender to God is blocked by several things, including:
    •Our ignorance of God – not knowing what he’s really like;

  • Annual psalm of thanksgiving

    Editor’s note: Nancy Kennedy has been writing an annual psalm of thanksgiving since 1999 when she first started writing her column.

    Dear God,
    It’s that time of year when I sit down to compose my annual psalm of thanksgiving. This will be my 16th year of making public my thanks and gratitude to you for yet another year of your faithfulness to me.
    This past year has been difficult in so many ways. At times I’ve felt like a dog’s chew toy, eaten up and slobbered on. I’ve felt pulled and pushed, stretched and torn.

  • Tough times test Christian heart

    Have you ever had a day when everything seemed to go wrong, or when everything you do seems to take five times longer than you planned or estimated?  
    Maybe you’re trying to get somewhere and your normal route is congested due to road repairs or the cars ahead of you take so long getting through a traffic light that you get caught by it.  Or you’re late for something and you can’t find a parking place.  Or maybe you’re dealing with people or even your children that aren’t behaving the way you think they should.

  • Being thankful makes throwing hard-boiled eggs not so easy

    Sometimes when we’ve had a good day at our house, as we crawl into bed I’ll say to my husband, “Nobody cried and nobody threw hard-boiled eggs.”
    The “nobody cried” is self-explanatory. The “nobody threw hard-boiled eggs” refers to the time I became so frustrated and enraged that I took a plastic container filled with a dozen hard-boiled eggs that I had just finished peeling and threw them with all my might, one by one, on the entry floor.
