When we surrender to faith we discover us

Kryptonite

The “Man of Steel” movie has so many Jesus references.  I really like that.  At one point he says he has been waiting for 33 years for this moment.  At a critical decision moment he sees the priest and asks for direction.  Behind him in this scene is a stained glass window depicting Jesus in…

Who do you see?

Have you ever noticed that owners of pets sometimes look like their pets?  It makes you wonder if owners are attracted to pets that look like themselves or if they start looking like each other over time.  How about your grandparents or that nice old couple at McDonald’s?  Notice how they look like they could…

Willing to Trust

I once heard this story by Andrian Rogers.  He was a great preacher from Memphis who could really bring a message.  He told a story about a trip he took to Johnson Space Center in Houston, TX.  There are a lot of really smart people at JSC.  Adrian met a PhD physicist and struck up a conversation. …

Surgery

Have you ever had surgery? I prefer supernatural miraculous healing but sometimes there is stuff inside us that needs to be removed or fixed.
