“Openness” and “In Prayer” from Valley of Vision

ValleyNanci and I often read The Valley of Vision, or listen to it (Max Maclean does an excellent audio version).  These are brief and profound Puritan prayers.

God’s sustaining providence brings relief, even when life becomes unspeakably difficult.

It’s No Accident You Live in This Time and Place

WalletWhen the following was posted last month on the Desiring God blog, written by Michael Oh, I was very touched by it. Read it, ponder it, pray over it. In case God speaks to your heart about giving, I’ve included a few ministries you may wish to invest in, an investment which will pay off for eternity.

The Secret Longings of Christmas

“Bah Humbug!” you say. “I may love Jesus, but you can have these commercial Christmases. And if I hear one more sappy rendition of Frosty the Snowman, I’m going to lose my mind!”
