Transform Square

(The following was originally published at www.CareyGreen.com.) This one's about personal affirmations. You know, the "I'm good enough, I'm smart enough, and dog-gone it, people like me!" things people are being encouraged to say to themselves each morning.Don't get me wrong, I think personal affirmations are a powerful way to start the day, at least as part of the morning routine – they are even Biblical… Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God … [Read more...]

Reflections of Grace 106: Entering 2016 with Faith and Assurance

ReflectionsOfGrace_thumbnail

As we welcome 2016 in I want to speak to you about the many seasons of our lives...When we start to realize that God is involved with every aspect of our lives, and is acutely aware of every step we take because He has a plan for each of us, then we can rest in the spot we are in until that plan is revealed to us. We talk about “waiting on the Lord,” but sometimes I think we really don’t know how to do that. Waiting is waiting—being patient while God reveals His plan for your life.There are m … [Read more...]

I’m Waiting 13: Our Choices ALWAYS Come with Consequences, with Ricky Garza

I'm Waiting Square v4

[display_podcast] I have never met anyone in my life who said, “Dang! I wish that I had slept with more people before I got married!” It’s always, “Dang… I wish I had waited”, myself included. Yet, we often receive letters saying that our “I’m Waiting” message is not a healthy message to tell kids today. And I just don’t get it. We ask kids to stay off of alcohol and drugs because if their dangers. We tell them don’t drink and drive because it’s deadly. We tell them don’t smoke because of the … [Read more...]

The Summit Lecture Series: A Muslim Makes Sense of the Trinity, with Nabeel Qureshi

The Summit Lecture Series 1

To purchase the entire DVD set of the Summit Lecture Series, visit summit.org. As a Muslim, I believed that God appointed Jesus (the Quran teaches very clearly that Jesus is THE MOST miraculous of prophets); and I believed that the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John ARE God’s word. But, when I was hit between the eyes with the reality that the Gospels could not have been corrupted over the past 2,000 years; and that Jesus did, in fact, claim to be God, I suffered from cognitive di … [Read more...]

[display_podcast] It was such a landmark moment when we put our youngest child on the bus, sending him to kindergarten, for the first time. Mom was crying. Dad was doing a celebratory dance. ON the other end, the kindergarten teacher was weeping, soul searching, doubting every career move leading to this day. My kids were confused about what kindergarten even is. I think this is because of its very name. Kindergarten is German, literally meaning “children’s garden”, which doesn’t even seem to m … [Read more...]

Jesus in HD 137: Forgive and (Don’t) Forget

Jesus in HD Thumbnail

[display_podcast] As you will hear in this PODCAST, in Matthew 18:21, Peter asked a profoundly important question. A question that haunted him. And if we are honest, a question that at times haunts us. Matthew 18:21 reads,“Then Peter came to Jesus and asked, “Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother or sister who sins against me? Up to seven times?” Can you think of any question that hits us more profoundly right where we live than this one? There is not a one of us who hasn’t been … [Read more...]
