Written Nudges | Every Word Proves True

It’s easy to claim something, but quite another to validate that claim. Consider these contradictions: “Psychic newsletter.” (Would a real psychic need a newsletter?) “Faith healer” dies of cancer. “Prophetess Jane” is correct 50% of the time. (Wouldn’t most of our guesses be accurate 50% of the time?) God weighs in on that one (Check…

Written Nudges | The Truth

These words were part of a prayer Jesus prayed only hours before He was arrested and later crucified. John 17 is the longest recorded prayer of Jesus and we are privileged to peek inside this intimate communication between the Father and the Son. In spite of the fact that He knew He was about to…

Written Nudges | Meditate on the Word

God’s voice settled around Joshua like a royal robe. He had been chosen as Moses’ predecessor and God was giving final instructions before Joshua, the mighty warrior, became Joshua, leader of the Israelites. Of utmost importance to God was the law He had given His people. They were not to take it as friendly advice;…

Written Nudges | Built on Sand

Sand is great…at the beach or in a sandbox. It feels good on your feet when you’re relaxing or walking along the seashore. It’s fine for making castles, but you don’t want to build a real house on it because it shifts with the waves. Sand goes wherever water takes it. That’s what Jesus meant.…

“Look at my new Bible!” cried Ericka. “It cost a fortune, but it was on sale. Look…study notes, devotionals, maps, and cross-references, and this is a calfskin cover! It’ll look great in my collection.” Linda lifted a brow. “Your collection? You have a Bible collection?” Ericka laughed. “Yes, for years. I have a King James…

Nudges | These Things | Look Up

Traffic jams. Angry bosses. Pressure. Demands. Expectations. Failures. When we look around, we can long for a cave to crawl in to.

Nudges | These Things | Obey

“Show me the way I should go…and then I’ll decide if I want to go that way.” Unfortunately, that’s the way most of us translate that verse. We want to know God’s will for us, but we also want to retain the veto power just in case we don’t like it. Sometimes we treat God’s…

Nudges | These Things | Holiness

“God wants you to believe in yourself! Do what makes you happy!” It’s hard to get through a week without hearing some version of this slickly-packaged nonsense that is passing for Christian teaching these days. Billionaire TV preachers clog the airways and flood the bookstores with their Bible-flavored messages of self-worship that would have outraged…

Nudges | These Things | Discipline

“I used to feel bad about sleeping with my boyfriend, but I prayed and prayed about it, and now it doesn’t bother me at all!” Miss Chirpy giggled with delight. “God’s grace is amazing, you know? I’m free to be me.” Pastor Dave lifted a brow at the young woman before him. “So, let me…

Nudges | These Things | God’s Children

How can you know for sure that you’re right with God? LOTS of people think they are. What if you’re one of them, how do you know? Over the centuries, people have come up with various litmus tests to assure themselves that they’re right with God. Some religions insist that if men slick back their…
