Worship Interludes: Questions [Episode 40, July 3, 2017]


I love this picture (courtesy of Pexels.Com).   As I thought about today’s worship interlude I was reminded of all the questions that I have.   I’ve been reading about Gideon in the Bible and how despite being visited by the “angel of the Lord” Himself, Gideon had so many questions and doubts about his purpose.   He went through numerous questions and tests and still doubted.

How many questions do we have unanswered?  How many doubts do we have?   I hope that during this interlude you will ponder those things in your heart that you question … or even doubt.   Ask for guidance to know the perfect will and plan for these things.

It’s OK to have questions.   I hope you find answers.

Worship Interludes: Simple Faith [Episode 18, April 2, 2017]

Today’s interlude is called “Simple Faith”.   I recorded this as I prepare to leave the country for a much-needed week of vacation with my wife and kids.  As we are packing and preparing to leave our youngest son, Andrew, tested positive for the flu virus.

This was stressful and frustrating.   It’s so hard to keep four kids isolated and we’ve had to do our best at getting him well and keeping him isolated from everyone else.   We’ve done all we know to do in our own strength – washing our hands, keeping him comfortable, getting him medicine, etc … but at this point, it all comes down to simple faith.   We pray and we believe that he will be well and that the rest of our family will not get sick.

It’s simple faith because the reality is there is very little we can control .  We have to trust and be at peace.

What stresses or situations are you dealing with this week?   My prayer is that as you listen to this in your time of devotion that you will find simple faith to hold on and believe.
