  • When Nothing Changes Or Turning Despair Into Delight

    Contributed by Louis Bartet on May 16, 2018
     | 311 views

    It may seem a strange place to find encouragement, but the man after God's own heart goes form despair to delight in six verses.

    WHEN NOTHING CHANGES Psalms 13 This was probably written by David during the years when King Saul was pursuing him for the purpose of taking his life. During that time David confessed, “There is but a step between me and death” (1 Samuel 20:3). I. HIS DESPAIR (13;1-2) 1. With The Lord ...read more

  • When Hope Seems Gone Series

     | 2,061 views

    Despair makes hope seem an empty dream as we snap awake to reality and we begin to believe the lie, “there's no way out.”...Our lesson today is one of “how” and “what”. “How” can I move from a spirit of despair to a life of hope?

    DARE TO BELIEVE – “When Hope Seems Gone” Jonah 2:1-10 This picture (person sitting against a wall, very dark room, small light in the window) is, to me, a powerful image of despair. It creates a sense of aloneness where an overwhelming gloom settles into your spirit and ...read more

  • Is God A Has Been? Series

    Contributed by Ed Vasicek on Aug 23, 2010

     | 1,993 views

    When one of the Sons of Korah looked at the current horrible disasters, he could not understand why God allowed these things. Like him, we struggle with reconciling God’s character and what God permits, especially when it strikes close to home.

    Is God A Has Been? (Psalm 44) 1. We do not have a lot of information about the Sons of Korah, but we do about their competing group, the Sons of Asaph. 2. According to I Chronicles 25:1-3, "David, together with the commanders of the army, set apart some of the sons of Asaph, Heman and ...read more

  • Love Trumps Rules Series

    Contributed by Kevin Ruffcorn on Sep 8, 2010
     | 2,106 views

    We are sorely tempted to institute rules that limit our ability to love. In God's kingdom love always trumps rules.

    Luke 13:10-17 “Love Trumps Rules” INTRODUCTION It is amazing to me that a brief story of a diminutive, hunchbacked woman who came into contact with Jesus in a small synagogue in an isolated village in Galilee over two thousand years ago can have such a tremendous impact on ...read more

  • Doing More With Less

    based on 3 ratings
     | 2,208 views

    In times of scarcity or stress, two personalities respond: fear, the cup half empty; and faith, the cup half full.

    A few moments ago we sang, "Drop Thy still dews of quietness, Till all our strivings cease; Take from our souls the strain and stress, And let our ordered lives confess The beauty of Thy peace." Those are beautiful words; they are lofty sentiments. But how? How can such things happen? In an ...read more

    Contributed by Joseph Smith on Jun 19, 2009
    based on 3 ratings
     | 2,555 views

    To the issue of why bad things happen to good people, Eliphaz’s answer is spiritually lazy and assumes that we can earn God’s favor. Job’s response is to have faith in a God who will ultimately accept responsibility for sin.

    You and I are about to enter the realm of mystery together. I know of nothing which challenges the mind and the imagination quite so much as the mystery of human suffering. Why men and women should have to suffer physically or emotionally – that has never been answered completely. In recent ...read more

  • The Emotional Life

    Contributed by Dave Workman on Apr 26, 2011
     | 2,581 views

    So oftentimes, emotions function like the lights on our dashboard. When the engine light comes on, something needs to be paid attention to.

    Today I want to talk about our emotional life. Maybe this is an area for you that seems out-of-control for you. Or perhaps the opposite: you feel a bit dead, almost feeling-less. Recently Time magazine even ran an article about how to handle your emotions during tough economic times. I’m ...read more
