Journey To Hope: Christ, the Hope of the World

04/19/2014, 08:50
Journey To Hope Any good journey worth taking has some markers along the way, doesn’t it? Living here in Colorado and enjoying the ability to hike in the mountains, the importance of markers indicating the trail becomes abundantly clear when you are above the tree line and clambering over a boulder field. Without those cairns of rocks [...]

Journey To Hope: The Example of Humility

04/17/2014, 10:35
Journey To Hope | Week Six The public ministry of Jesus Christ began as a forty-day exodus into the Judean desert where through fasting, prayer, and communing with the Father he overcame the temptations of the Enemy. Few places on this earth are more barren than the lifeless Judean plains where Jesus was led by the [...]

Journey To Hope: Bringing Life from Death

04/09/2014, 09:02
The greatest time to remember how the Lord brings life from death is during this Lenton season. It’s a time to reflect on not only how God has resurrected parts of our own lives, but more importantly how His son conquered death so that whoever believes in Him shall have eternal life. Knowing, experiencing, and believing Jesus’ death & resurrection is the only way our scars will become holy tattoos for His name. How have you seen God’s resurrection power throughout your roadmap of scars? What areas in your life are you trusting God to make your deserts bloom?

Journey To Hope: Giving To Others

Journey To Hope | Week 4 Matthew 25:35-40 “For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.’ [...]

Journey To Hope: Emptying Yourself

03/26/2014, 09:23
WEEK THREE Read: Matthew 6:16-18 Years ago, I decided that I would fast every Tuesday.  Mostly out of noticing a need for increased discipline in my life, and I figured that the side-effect of feeling closer to God through my stomach rumblings would also be good for me.  Living in a tight community, word soon got out [...]

Journey To Hope: Power of Prayer

03/19/2014, 07:33
Prayer.  How many times have I said, “I’ll be praying for you,” only to have that be the only moment I prayed for them.  Even those who are not very religious find comfort and try and comfort others by saying they will pray for others in a moment of crisis.  There is a general understanding [...]

Journey To Hope: What Will You Do?

03/12/2014, 09:48
I was challenged by a close friend the other day about Lent. He wasn’t even aware he was challenging me when he simply asked the question: ‘what are you doing for Lent?’ After I put my defenses down because I hadn’t even thought about it, I realized he wasn’t asking what I was fasting from, why there weren’t ashes on my forehead, or what big changes I was going to make in my life. He was inviting me to consider Lent as another opportunity to pause and reflect on who I am and who God is and position my heart to walk in step with Him.

I can double your lunch money

02/14/2014, 07:39
I Cor. 16:14  Let all that you do be done in love. Three years ago I had a crazy idea to ask people to give up their lunch on Valentine’s Day and instead donate it to help orphans in Swaziland. We called it Love4lunch, and it’s raised over $18,000 for the Bheveni CarePoint. This year, we’re loving [...]

I didn’t think this kind of love was possible.

HopeChest is facing a dire situation in Uganda where approximately 800 unsponsored children are facing a severe outbreak of Hepatitis E. This is a brand new area where HopeChest has no presence or ministry established. As a board member and fellow ministry partner, I’m asking for your help to raise $10,000 in emergency funds to [...]
