Grounded in Faith

Finding hidden treasures in dark places

I’ve never been good with waiting. My husband never understands why I purposefully read the end of a novel just to know what happens and yet still go back and finish reading the rest of the book. When we watch a movie, if he knows how it ends, I want him to tell me, then I can settle in and enjoy the rest. When I was a little girl, I discovered…

When God moves

Recently I read through the book of Acts and noticed something kind of profound, something that’s still happening today. In chapter 14 we read about Paul and Barnabas in Iconium, preaching at the Jewish synagogue. Paul and Barnabas spoke with power and influence and the Lord our God was with them. Clearly, they loved God more…

A window to see you

And when Jesus had been baptized, just as he came up from the water, suddenly the heavens were opened to him and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting on him. And a voice from heaven said, ‘This is my Son, the Beloved, with whom I am well pleased.’ (Matthew 3:16-17) I have recently become very aware of my behavior…

In which we let our anger go

You forgot to pay the electric bill. Someone left the milk out overnight. You missed a deadline, and your son missed the bus. Your heartbeat elevates, and your nerves stand on edge. You’re a wee bit angry at the world, and at the kids, and mostly at yourself. You’ve been overmatched by your to-do list, overloaded…

The Prince of Peace comes to a war-torn world

From George Frederic Handel’s grand masterpiece “Messiah” in 1742 to Amy Grant’s classic “Emmanuel” in our day, the phrase “Prince of Peace” tumbles out of some of our most beloved Christmas songs.  But George and Amy didn’t make up that title—the Old Testament prophet Isaiah, who ministered 700 years…

Christmas in Heaven

Christmastime is filled with love and light and laughter. You hear the familiar carols and they sing of unspeakable joy…but you may not feel that this year. You’re not alone, so many have lost loved ones recently and going through the Christmas season without them seems unbearable and unthinkable. I’ve been…

Where’s the Merry in Christmas?

Decked halls. Festive parties. Movies full of Christmas miracles. Hope and joy in every heart, right? For many, this season does bring great wonder, renewal and joy.  But just as many more are left wondering, Where IS the Merry in Christmas? Many families will face this Christmas with an empty chair at the family gathering, a family…

What does “Thy Kingdom Come” even mean?

It’s a simple idea, and a deeply biblical one, woven into the very fabric of the prayer Jesus taught us to pray. “Thy kingdom come.” Praying kingdom come, for God’s will to be done, His kingdom to come…what would that mean?  “What would stand and what would fall?” reflects Frederick Buechner.  “Who would…

Thanksgiving – It’s good for your soul

Thanksgiving is a time for food, family gatherings and football. Once everyone is gathered at the table, my husband asks us to share what we’re thankful for. I’m sure many of you do likewise, but from now on, don’t make thanksgiving a once a year occasion. I don’t mean regularly cook a full turkey dinner,…
