A really cool thing about God is that He has a solution for literally every situation.

 

That includes mental health. We see this especially in the ministry of Jesus, who walked the land healing people of all sorts of terrible things. One day He encountered a man driven insane by demons.

 

Mark 5:15 says, “They came to Jesus and observed the man who had been demon-possessed sitting down, clothed and in his right mind, the very man ...

For some reason, people sometimes tell big lies when it comes to fishing. You know, what was really a small fry becomes a man-eating shark in the re-telling of the story.

 

But that’s nothing compared to a really incredible story in the Old Testament book of Jonah.

 

It seems the prophet didn’t want to preach in the pagan city of Nineveh, so he sailed away on a ship. He forgot that God controls the sea and everything in it, and Jon...

One of the extraordinary stories in the Bible involves a young woman named Rahab. This story beautifully expresses God’s love for all people.

 

Rahab lived in the Canaanite town of Jericho, which was near the border of the Promised land God had promised to His people, who had been wandering for years in search of a home after slavery in Egypt.

 

Because the Canaanites were powerful, Joshua sent a scouting party into the land, to se...

The Bible is full of stories of God doing amazing things for those He calls. One of the most famous seems to be too good to be true, but it is!

 

Daniel, God’s man in exile in Babylon, insisted on worshiping the Lord, and not a human king. This was against the law. When those who were jealous of him urged the king to punish Daniel, the prophet was thrown into a lion’s den overnight.

 

And that was that. Or was it?

 

Next morning, t...

Have you ever gotten so tired of life that you wish you could disappear and start over somewhere else? Ever wish that fantasy would just pull you out of your circumstances? They make movies about things like that, but it’s not real.

 

John 14:2–3 says, “In My Father’s house are many dwelling places; if it were not so, I would have told you; for I go to prepare a place for you. If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again ...

How much can one person take, and still choose to offer kindness?

 

In Genesis Chapter 37, verses 12–36, 17-year-old Joseph is sent by his father to visit his brothers, who were tending the family’s flock of sheep in the countryside.

 

Rather than the friendly check-in he expected, Joseph’s brothers initially plotted to kill him out of jealousy, but instead sold him into slavery to a group of Ishmaelites heading for Egypt. Among th...

Donna and Betty were sisters, but in mid-life they were both tired of the fighting and mistrust and hurt. Each had their grievances. Both were stubborn.

 

Luke 2:14 says, “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men!”

 

At one particular time of the year, Betty heard this verse spoken in a service. And here’s an ironic thing: of the two sisters, most people would agree she was definitely the most stubborn!

Family is a wonderful thing, and these relationships do so much to enrich our lives, but family makes a lousy god.

 

People sometimes think...if only my relationship was better with my dad, or if only I found a husband or wife, or if only we had kids — then life would be complete. A picture-perfect family is a blessing, indeed, but this is not where God wants us to seek meaning in our lives.

 

Family relationships are complicated, ...

In thinking about different kinds of love, it’s a beautiful thing to realize that God has placed certain people in our lives for specific reasons.

 

Friendship is one of His great gifts to us, all-time.

 

Proverbs 17:17 says, “A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.”

 

Do you have someone in your life that is not blood-related, but it sure feels like it? In fact, often it feels like a closer relation than ...

The Bible has a lot to say about how we are to treat each other on our life’s journey. One story in particular in Genesis shows us how to resist peer pressure, especially when someone’s life is in danger. In fact, this story really captures the essence of what we’re talking about this week.

 

John 15:13 says, “Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends."

 

Jacob had sons, but one was his favorit...

Hers is the greatest motherhood story of all time. You know who she is.

 

Magnificent Mary!

 

Her story has been told many times, but how grateful we are that it’s recorded in Scripture. Whatever God’s reasons for choosing this particular woman to give birth to Jesus, we know that she must have loved the Lord with all her heart.

 

And just think how her head and heart must have been spinning when the angel visited her and told her ...

Are you a woman blessed with the gift of a wonderful mother-in-law? We can hardly think of a more important relationship. Through the ages, this mentoring friendship has sealed families and nurtured them. Likewise, we easily see the pain inflicted when this relationship isn’t good.

 

In the Old Testament, we read of a really remarkable mother-in-law. She showed great kindness to a young woman at just the right moment.

Have you ever wondered what it would have been like to be close to Jesus when He was on the earth? It would have been amazing to be in His inner circle.

 

We know of a remarkable woman, a family member, who would have been able to be around to watch the most amazing life unfold.

 

Her name was Elizabeth. An aunt of Jesus.

 

We read in Luke that everyone thought that the time for Elizabeth to become a mother was passed. In those day...

We think of her as a genteel Southern lady, and she was that, for sure.

 

But Ruth Bell Graham was so much more. While her husband was away so much, preaching to the masses, she was preaching to her own little flock. The result was children who became adults, and in turn shared the Good News of Jesus with others.

 

Anne Graham Lotz and Franklin Graham didn’t just fall out of the sky!

If you’ve been fortunate to hold a newborn, you know what it’s like to be thunderstruck by the delicate features. Everything in miniature.

 

And then the eyes open. You’re in love.

 

Jeremiah 1:5 says, “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you.”

 

A baby is a blessing and gift from the Lord. All life is precious; it doesn’t matter if the parents are famous or completely obscure. In that warm bundle is a whole lifetime waiting to ...

Today, we wrap up our series on finding contentment by discussing the source of true peace and happiness. 

 

John MacArthur once wrote a book called “Our Sufficiency in Christ.” In it, he revealed the path to finding true peace and contentment. And he says, "There's a single word that encompasses all the riches we find in Christ — grace." What a magnificent word it is. It's used more than 150 times in the New Testam...

Solomon was king after his famous father, David, in ancient Israel. He also became insanely wealthy. According to the world’s standard, he had everything.

 

Everything except peace later in life. In this way he was like a modern person, because truthfully, people’s natures never really change over time. It’s one of the things we have talked about this week.

 

Ecclesiastes 3:11 says, “He has made everything beautiful in its time. He...

As we continue in our series on finding contentment, today's message is really about taking the long view. 

 

The human attention span is short. Like really, really short. Between the World Wars, Winston Churchill warned Europe that Hitler was a threat to the continent at least. But people ignored him. And then when the Nazis turned violent, the people turned to Churchill as their prime minister.

When someone asks how you’re doing, what is your typical response? Many of us give a quick, “I’m fine, thank you,” or, “Doing great!” Even if we’re actually struggling. It’s easier not to dive into a verbal rundown of our discontent if we aren’t really fine, and things aren’t so great, after all. 

 

As followers of Jesus, we are called to curate contentment in our lives. That doesn’t mean we have to pretend everything is awesome if...

Modern society lives in a constant state of discontentment, and the messaging we hear on a daily basis constantly entices us to buy into that state of being. 

 

Our home or mobile phone or television is too small, too basic, too old. 

 

Our hair is the wrong color, cut, or texture, our faces are too plain, and the shape of our bodies...imperfect, obviously. 

 

We don’t drive the right car, wear the right designer labels, or attend ...

    Hosted by Laura Beil (Dr. Death, Bad Batch), Sympathy Pains is a six-part series from Neon Hum Media and iHeartRadio. For 20 years, Sarah Delashmit told people around her that she had cancer, muscular dystrophy, and other illnesses. She used a wheelchair and posted selfies from a hospital bed. She told friends and coworkers she was trapped in abusive relationships, or that she was the mother of children who had died. It was all a con. Sympathy was both her great need and her powerful weapon. But unlike most scams, she didn’t want people’s money. She was after something far more valuable.
