Overcoming Intimidation: Facing Our Fears

What do you do when you don’t know what to do? When you feel small and powerless? Jehoshaphat shows us that fear isn’t necessarily the absence of faith; it can actually be a catalyst for faith when it leads us to the right place.

Are You Getting Tired of Pushing?

This is a repost, originally from an email a friend sent me a while back. I still love it!

A man was sleeping one night in his cabin when the presence of the Lord suddenly awakened him. The Lord told the man he had work for him to do, and showed him a large rock in front of his cabin. The Lord explained that the man was to push against the rock with all his might.

So this the man did day after day. For many years he toiled from sunup to sundown, his shoulders set squarely against the cold massive surface of the unmoving rock, pushing with all his might.
