Tim Keller – Why Work Matters

In this video, Tim Keller shares the biblical truth that all Christians are engaged in God’s work, not merely Christians working in full-time pastoral ministry. When a baker bakes bread or a musician writes beautiful music, they are the means through which God provides food and art to the world. He makes the case that ...

When Your Spiritual Path Looks More Like a Maze

Last week my son came home from Sunday school with a maze—one of those worksheets in which you trace a looping labyrinth of trails from start to finish. His class had read the story of Jesus’s baptism, and the goal of this particular maze was to lead John the Baptist to Jesus. Rowan claimed the […]You just finished reading When Your Spiritual Path Looks More Like a Maze! Consider leaving a comment!

An Open Letter to Mothers Who Have Miscarried

Dear Mothers Who Have Miscarried,I've lost two, and it's near torn me apart, this longing to be in heaven with my babies, but I've learned the secret to staying on earth.I learned the secret, just weeks ago, and I want to share it here with you, if I may?It was December, a cold afternoon and I was meeting in a church with a prayer team. They asked me about the babies I'd lost and I wept so hard I couldn't speak because this past spring, God had told me my Madeleine would live. And then she'd died. He'd told me about her personality, and then she'd slid from my body, and I gave birth to Stillborn Faith that day.I've been grieving ever since and sometimes it's just a white lace shoe that undoes me. Or a pink dress.  Or the sight of a woman's rounded womb.And I met with the prayer team and they prayed over me, that the Grief would end. I nodded tearfully.Following the prayer, one of the women pulled me aside and told me she'd heard a pastor speak once, on miscarried and aborted babies, and that this pastor had received a vision of a nursery in heaven. In this vision, the pastor saw a nursery filled with miscarried and aborted babies, angels watching over them, and upon reaching heaven, mothers who'd lost their babies would be given a second chance to raise them.Now, friends, I don't know that there's anything in Scripture that talks about a nursery in heaven but I also know that heaven is mysterious and unfathomable and eternal, and that a nursery is something akin to the loving character of God the Father. He may just give us a second chance to raise our babies.I breathed long and hard and fast after she told me this. Because if this nursery does exist, then suddenly God's words to me in the spring made sense: his words saying that my baby would live (even though on earth, she died); his words describing her personality, as though she were already alive.Because no life is lost to Jesus.The night I lost my first child, I had a dream, even as I slept: a little girl with golden curls sat outside my bedroom door playing with toys, and when she looked at me, she had her father's eyes. And then I looked down at my arms and there was a little boy asleep in them, but I couldn't see his face.If this nursery exists, that dream was of my daughter, playing in heaven (and the baby in my arms? My eldest son, who was conceived months later).And my daughter's waiting for me--even as your children are waiting for you.13 For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. 14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. 15 My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. 16 Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. (Psalm 139)Friends?Our God does not lie.If he's told you that your baby lives? She does. Maybe not on earth. But nothing can separate us from the love of God--not even death, Romans 8 tells us.May you be filled with hope. This world is not all there is.Hallelujah.Your sister,e.*** Hey guys--I hate asking this, but I guess it's part of being a "professional" writer; I created an Author page yesterday and am wondering if you'll consider Liking me?

Twenty-One Grains of Wheat

They were good men by pretty much any standard. Able-bodied, hard workers who only wanted to provide for their families, but there was no work available. So they counted the cost, took a big risk, and crossed a border into dangerous territory in search of jobs. And we all know what happened. We’ve seen the […]

3 Virtues Even Non-Trekkies Can Learn from Spock

Many of us were saddened this week at the passing of Leonard Nimoy, an icon (if not the icon) of the Star Trek universe. I guess you could say I’m a trekkie, minus the spock ears. Okay, I did own a pair when I was a kid, but I never wore them in public. Does […] The post 3 Virtues Even Non-Trekkies Can Learn from Spock appeared first on Brock Stephen Henning.

The Best Ten Minutes

My daughter keeps telling me that ten minutes of jumprope is equivalent to running for 30 minutes. Do it, Mom! You'll love it! I read a fitness blogger's summary of the research reports that say that ten minutes of jumping rope has the same cardiovascular benefits as:30 minutes of jogging2 sets of tennis singles30 minutes of racquet and handball playing720 yards of swimming18 holes of golfHow encouraging! But can I do it? Yes, I can! It's hard. Very hard. We set a timer and jump rope in the kitchen since it's 9 degrees outside. Jumping rope indoors offers me a way to exercise when it's too cold to walk! Yahoo! We jump and jump and jump. We play Motown music in the background. (I love Motown music in the background of anything I'm doing lately.) I'll report back on my jumprope progress. For now, it's something so fun to do with children indoors. Just don't do it if there's a fan and light above your head (lesson learned). And watch out for cats.

Who’s Really the Enemy?

Passing by a particular denominational church recently triggered memories to a moment when I felt deep pain. Not because of the church, but because of how I was treated by my family concerning a boy I once was interested in dating who attended this church denomination. He really was interested in dating me as well, and when […] The post Who’s Really the Enemy? appeared first on Marni Arnold.
