No matter how you spin it, waiting for God to answer our prayers can be difficult. We may never fully understand why the Lord makes us wait, but he always has a reason. Here are some thoughts I shared in my book – Stop Worrying & Start Living (2016, Dynamic Catholic). If you’re frustrated that God isn’t answering your prayers, check out this verse from the Book of Tobit… He was fifty-eight years old when he lost his sight, and after… Read more

From time to time, we’re all going to be afraid of something. And, since fear is a feeling, it’s not something you can control. That’s why the church teaches that feelings are morally neutral. When I speak at churches and conferences, I always make the point that we shouldn’t be afraid to be afraid. It doesn’t matter how you feel, but it does matter how you respond to that feeling. What do you do when you’re afraid? Worry Or Trust… Read more

Do Not Worry In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus speaks extensively about worry. Rather than let me tell you why worrying is useless, I’ll let him tell you. He does a much better job than I ever could. Look At The Birds “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look… Read more

How Much Do We Really Need? Sometimes it seems like we can never have enough “stuff”. At what point should we be content with what we have and stop seeking more? Here’s what the Bible says: But godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it. But if we have food and clothing, we will be content with that. Those who want to get rich fall into temptation and… Read more

God Or Money? Working in full time ministry, I don’t have a lot of money. Not even close. Even though we live very modestly, it’s often tough to pay the bills. The Lord has definitely provided for us, but we’ve had a few close calls. Now, here’s a confession. I love my job, but I sometimes wish we had more money. Not just a little bit, but lots and lots of money. There are times when I dream about about… Read more

Happiness Isn’t Dependent On Things Happiness has never come easy for me. I always wanted to be happy, but never could seem to find a way to make it happen. Like many people, I believed that my happiness was dependent on circumstances. If only I could make certain things happen, I’d be all set. Over the years I convinced myself that all I needed to be happy was a girlfriend, a great job, a wife, children, good weather, lots of… Read more

Love One Another! On the night before he died, Jesus gave us one of the most challenging commands imaginable – Love One Another. In my opinion, it’s the single most difficult part of being a Christian. “I give you a new commandment: love one another. As I have loved you, so you also should love one another.” (John 13:34) I don’t know about you, but I struggle with this every day. Jesus commands me to love everyone with the same… Read more

The gospels are filled with stories of Jesus healing various individuals. It’s very inspiring, especially if you or someone you know needs a miraculous healing. But there’s a catch. After healing the person, Jesus would often tell them that they were healed because of their faith. As one who has struggled with weak faith for many years, this message would upset me. If the healing didn’t occur, was it due to my lack of faith? This raises an important question… Read more
