Press in to Touch Jesus

Our daughter Angelica’s marriage to Stephen delighted Jerry and me because it brought us one step closer to being grandparents. Their talk of moving to Europe stretched over the first year of their marriage. I simply chose not to believe it. When Stephen accepted a job offer in Hungary, my heart sank. They were expecting their first baby in the fall and now my tiny dream-come-true would be across the globe. He moved to Budapest when Angel was in her {Read More}

What God’s Goodness Can Do When a Young Missionary Yields Her Life

We know there is a fragrant aroma to goodness. And, we know from scripture, our goodness is a reflection of the love of God. The Holy Spirit fruit of goodness is like a lighthouse shining strong in a dark world. “You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden.” Matthew 5:14 Goodness is about choices. Godly choices of doing the right thing, even when it hurts or costs. Goodness reflects the willingness to be {Read More}

No Substitute for Everyday Goodness

“Christianity is not a voice in the wilderness, but a life in the world. It is not an idea in the air but feet on the ground going God’s way. It is not an exotic to be kept under glass, but a hardy plant to bear twelve months of fruits in all kinds of weather. Fidelity to duty is its root and branch. Nothing we can say to the Lord, no calling Him by great or dear names, can take {Read More}

The Fragrant Aroma of Goodness

Perhaps you’ve heard someone say, “She’s such a good person.” Often this compliment is based on the person’s humanitarian actions. But that definition of goodness represents a worldly viewpoint. It doesn’t reflect biblical truth. The truth is, apart from Christ, we have no goodness. Isaiah 64:6 describes our deeds when done apart from a relationship with Christ this way: “We are all infected and impure with sin. When we display our righteous deeds, they are nothing but filthy rags” (NLT). {Read More}

Finding Good in Others

You only turn 50 once, correct? For that special birthday, I wanted it to be just right. I don’t ask much out of life, really. All I wanted for my birthday was to see the sun rise above the Atlantic Ocean and set over the Gulf of Mexico on the same day. We live in northern Florida and in Florida, you can! I had never had the pleasure of staying in a hotel that faces the ocean. It was as {Read More}

Bearing the Fruit of Goodness Daily

What do you think of when you hear the word goodness? Most likely you are thinking about good things. Good food, good friends, a good movie, a good day, a good heart, and the list could go on and on. But what does good mean in relation to the fruit of the Spirit? Scripture starts out in Genesis with the Lord creating the world and everything He made was “good.” What a precedent to set. From the beginning of time, {Read More}
