The Lord Is My Rock, My Fortress, and My Deliverer: Portions from Psalm 18

Here are portions of Psalm 18 that I meditated on recently before Nanci and I met with her doctor. (You can read an update on her health, and some good news we’re grateful for, on her Caring Bridge page.) God spoke to me through these verses, and I hope they speak to you too.

Believe It by Nick Foles, a Great New Book, #5 on the NYT Best Sellers List

Recently quarterback Nick Foles' new book Believe It: My Journey of Success, Failure and Overcoming the Odds, was released. As of this Sunday it will debut at #5 on the New York Times Best Sellers list! With Josh Cooley’s able help, Nick has told his story in a unique and memorable way that can be enjoyed by avid football fans and not so avid ones.

Will Our Bodies Shine in Heaven?

Some people have asked me if our resurrected bodies will shine. They cite two passages: “The righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father” (Matthew 13:43) and “Those who have insight will shine brightly like the brightness of the expanse of heaven” (Daniel 12:3, NASB).

Get into God’s Word with The Bible Project

One of the best things to come out of Portland, Oregon (where I live) in the last few years is The Bible Project, which is done by a couple of creative brothers here that know God and His Word. Nanci and I often watch one of their 5 to 10 minute videos at dinner, and our discussion takes off from there.

John Piper on Your Greatest Reason Not to Worry

Help Us Fund a Translation of Scripture, in Honor of Our Coworker Karen Coleman

We can’t think of a better way to remember Karen’s legacy than to give in her honor towards the translation of Scripture. We were so happy that she learned of our idea just before she died and was able to respond with a smile and nod! So we’re partnering with The Seed Company to help fund the Esimbi project, which will bring God’s Word to 20,000 people who live in isolated areas in Karen’s beloved Cameroon. It's especially appropriate that we choose the Esimbi language project as this is the language group that Karen went to minister to in Cameroon.
