Life in the Snow Globe

When I was a kid, I received a snow globe from a classmate as a Christmas gift. It had a couple of little figures in it who were ice skating, surrounded by pine trees, with a reindeer watching them. (Yes, I remember the weirdest things.) The cool thing was to shake it and watch the “snow” fall slowly on the scene and imagine what living in the globe would feel…

World Mandate 2018

One of the most significant experiences to which Debbie and I exposed our children was the World Mandate Conference. Every year in February, we’d drive to Waco to Baylor’s Ferrell Center to hear the most inspiring stories of God’s power throughout the world.      This conference was part of opening our daughter’s eyes (and mine and Debbie’s)…

Praying for Vegas

Like you, I was shocked to awaken on Monday to hear of the horrendous shooting in Las Vegas and the number of those killed and injured. As I watched the news, I had trouble wrapping my head around what I was hearing…59 people dead…maybe more…500+ injured. It’s stating the obvious for me to say that the world is becoming an increasingly dark place.…

Easy and Hard at the Same Time

Abiding in Jesus is both hard and easy at the same time. It’s hard because even though we have the presence of the Holy Spirit within us as followers of Jesus, we still contend with what Paul calls the flesh nature (Romans 8:5-17).

Abiding in Jesus

Jesus referred to God as Father more than any other name. He clearly wants us to know what God is like and how he wants us to relate to him. So the logical question would be: Do you experience God as Father? Sometimes it’s hard to experience or understand God as Father. Some of us may have to release our current definition of what a father is, especially if our…

All Hands On Deck for Hurricane Harvey

Now’s the time for us to be the hands and feet of Jesus. San Antonio is already providing shelter for 10,000 people fleeing the hurricane and more are expected. When pain and tragedy strike, we have an incredible opportunity to show the love and concern of Jesus-so let’s set up! Here are four ways you can make a difference immediately:  Volunteer locally at a…

Confidence in the Storm

As many of you know, my dad, Dick Freeman, went to be with Jesus this past week. The service celebrating his life was this past Sunday. While our family is experiencing all the emotions you might expect, we want you to know that we are standing on solid ground, confident in the reality of Jesus’ promises and provisions.      This isn’t “pastor…
