The Eyes of Faith

Eye of faithWhen we view life through the eyes of faith, we can say, “Things appear one way, but my God is sovereign, loving, merciful, and kind. Through his grace and empowerment, I will cling to him."

Video of Elizabeth Wall: Way Bigger than her Cystic Fibrosis

Elizabeth WallSince many have told me how much they appreciated the video with Christian the Lion, I'm going to do something a little different over the next 12 days or so. I'll post four videos that I think will be well worth your time. I'll put them in four separate blogs. 

A Tribute to My Mother

Lucille AlcornThis year in October (2009), it will be twenty-eight years since my mom died of cancer. Our Angela was only four months old then, so while Mom held Angie and fawned over her and loved her dearly, Angie wasn't old enough yet to understand what had happened.

Jim Harrell, Perspectives in Suffering, Part 3

Jim HarrellC. S. Lewis said, "God whispers to us in our pleasures, speaks in our conscience, but shouts in our pains. It is his megaphone to rouse a deaf world.”
