It's almost universally believed that tech guru, Steve Jobs, floated into mega success with Apple, the company he co-founded with Steve Wozniak.

 

Job’s first go around with Apple didn't end well — in 1985, he was forced out. His next effort wasn't a home run either, yet Job puts his head down like a fullback and plowed ahead. Next up for him was founding Pixar and finally, more than a decade after his humiliating exit ...

As we wrap up our series on precious jewels, it is kind of fun to spotlight one last gemstone. One that isn’t immediately beautiful or desired.

 

But it is the rarest!

 

Discovered in east Asia by British mineralogist Arthur Pain, the so-called “Painite” gemstone can be found in several colors, and the various hues seen as light hits them give an uncommon view.

 

Incredibly, only 25 such stones exist today, and the value per gram w...

We don’t have direct evidence, of course. The Bible doesn’t tell us this exactly…

 

But tradition says that the Ten Commandments were carved from a solid slab of sapphire.

 

It’s a beautiful thought, isn’t it? The rich blue of the sapphire gemstone reminds us of royalty, and the regal King Jesus. It fits!

 

Proverbs 31:10 says, “She is far more precious than jewels.”

 

When a woman admires a sapphire necklace, or turns her hand in ...

Everyone loves the beauty of nature’s gems. The greens, blues, and reds of natural gemstones have set apart jewelry since the beginning of time. These precious jewels are relatively rare, and desired by people from all walks of life.

 

None more than the ruby.

 

The second hardest gemstone, rubies have always been striking for their deep reds that flash in the light. They have been used in the crowns of monarchs for centuries, and ...

If we're honest and open to the truth, miracles have always been a part of our world. In the beginning, God made a dazzling world full of diversity—beautiful animals, gorgeous sunsets, streams of water. He also made us to enjoy it all, and to keep it for Him.

 

But just like the entrance of sin into our world, which marred the original beauty, we sometimes get weighed down with worry and cares of life. We look up one day and th...

When Hurricane Katrina rolled through, the spinning white satellite image on TV screens actually looked evil. For residents of New Orleans, waiting for that hurricane that's exactly what it felt like. Thousands of people were affected by the brutal storm that poured in from the Gulf. In many ways, the city still hasn't recovered. But in the chaos, God was there.

Hurricane Dorian caused a lot of anxiety and destruction. Many of us worried about the East coast of our own country, but the Bahamas were hit really hard, with the storm basically stationary for many hours. 

 

Residents there hunkered down and sought higher ground, wondering when the onslaught would end, and the storm would pass. The physical damage left by the lengthy storm was devastating.

Have you ever gotten tired of treading water?

 

Martha is a 20-something-old lifeguard in Los Angeles. Besides dealing with deck chairs purposely thrown into the water and parents asking her to babysit poolside, she's noticed another aspect of the job that really tugs at your heart. "Kids pretend to drown in the pool so that I will pay attention to them." Wow. Think about that.

 

At a young age, humans need to be nurtur...

Isn’t it fascinating that a secular definition of the word blessed is “made holy; consecrated.” It seems the whole world really knows, even deep down, that blessings are from God.

 

Psalm 107:1 says, "Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever."

 

The psalm tells us several things at once. Meditate on each one.

 

We are to give thanks.

 

He is good.

 

His love for us is eternal.

 

That’s quite a good ...

How would you feel, if you suddenly lost the gifts so many of us take for granted, such as vision, hearing, or the ability to walk?

 

Fanny Crosby was struck blind at just 6 weeks of age, but God had a plan for her. She was raised by her mother and grandmother after her father’s death when she was about 6 months old, and although she grew up poor, she was blessed to attend an excellent school for the blind in New York state, near w...

This may be hard to visualize as we’re right in the middle of Summer, but during Christmas of 1944, American soldiers were dug in against the Germans. The dark, frozen Belgian forest added to the bleak atmosphere. Morale was low, ammo was low, and food supplies were low.

 

But just when things looked the worst, General Patton’s Third Army showed up almost out of nowhere. The men who fought in the Battle of the Bulge and survived re...

In the spring of 2014 Daniel and Colleen Jaquith, American missionaries to the Philippines, were awakened suddenly by the sounds of gunfire and shouts. Before they could react a gunman appeared in their bedroom doorway, and he was holding a gun to the head of their pastor. 

 

Demanding money, the intruder was distracted when their pastor suggested he look in another part of the room for money. This gave the pastor just enough time ...

The area surrounding Ein Gedi, near the Dead Sea, is bleak. Desert scenes and HOT temps! It isn’t a place you’d go just for fun.

 

It really wasn’t fun when David was hiding from King Saul. The guy who whipped a rock at Goliath’s head was already a legend among the people. Saul couldn’t stand that, and so he did what power-hungry leaders do: he decided to eliminate the competition. David hid from the King’s henchmen for a long time...

Honestly, sometimes as Christians, we think things are going to be easy. After all, when Jesus saves you, it doesn’t get any better than that! The joy we feel is genuine, and lasting.

 

But that doesn’t mean we escape this world. Bad things can and do happen. This week we’re talking about having enough grit to get to the glory.

 

Romans 5:3–4 says, “Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering pr...

Standing in the door of the plane, with a fierce wind whipping his whole body, Curtis wondered why he’d volunteered for the paratroopers. It was glamorous, they said.

 

It’ll make a man out of you, they said.

 

Shutting his eyes, Curtis prayed the most honest prayer of his life. He stretched out his hands and took a step…

Whenever we have to overcome an obstacle in our lives, we are thinking about a million different things. Our minds race. We might even be aware that our Creator is there to help.

 

But have you ever considered that even when life gets tough, you can still have joy?

 

Romans 12:12 says, “Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.”

We all screw up. We all fail in some way. We fall short of goals, or get embarrassed in some kind of career implosion or other events. It’s easy then to feel like we’ll never win again.

 

That is not how God sees you.

 

Jeremiah 29:11 says, “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”   

 

Hope and a future. That’s what’s ahead, not depres...
