Our hope, God's hope is personal. In his 1939 Christmas message to the nation King George VI read Minnie Louise Haskins’ poem, God Knows, given him by his daughter, Elizabeth.
“I said to the man who stood at the Gate of the Year,
‘Give me a light that I may tread safely into the…
Where is your anchor fixed? In my first post in this blog I referred to the storm in acts 27. Let me call your attention to something a little unusual in that account. Still in the night after they had discovered the danger of a coast they could crash into, some sailors sought to escape the ship. They lowered a boat on the pretense of laying out anchors from the bow. They had already cast four anchors from the stern. They needed four anchors to slow their…Continue
Earlier when I asked if there were any books on Christian writing, someone answered that books on writing were books on writing.

I'm praying for a prayer movement. I have been for years. I long to see God call His churches, His own people, to pray as we have never prayed, as we have never dreamed of praying before. And in an effort to encourage you to join me in this prayer let me spell out what I am asking God to bring about.
I would like to see churches across America and beyond assigning prayer lists to their members, setting up 24 hour…Continue
