"But the LORD God called to the man, “Where are you?”  Genesis 3:9

Possibly within the first day of human existence, Adam and Eve had unraveled their faith and found themselves hiding in the dirt.  Yet even in the most God-forsaken places, His presence is never absent....

A new year, a fresh start.  For many, this begins with a list of NY resolutions that won't outlast the first quarter.  Throughout January, both the gym and the church are packed with good intentions.  But soon, the old emotional baggage creeps in - guilt, shame, anger,...

During this holiday season, Isaiah 9:6 is often quoted: "For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace."  And for good reason, it...

As I write this, Chicago is getting hit with a harsh, sleety downpour. This weather is far from the ideal, except for aspiring ninjas who can evade both hail and pneumonia. But when I look out the window, I am reminded of so many storms (physical and spiritual) in my l...
