How To Be A Christian Without Being A Jerk

Faith in real life

Psalm 9

February 25th, 2015


And those who know your name put their trust in you, for you, O Lord, have not forsaken those who seek you.


No matter what happens in our lives, when we trust in God we know good will come. Anyone who seeks after God will discover the same thing about him. Ultimately, God doesn’t disappoint.

Is God good in your life?

Psalm 4

February 17th, 2015

4:8 In peace I will lie down and sleep, for you alone, O Lord, will keep me safe.

Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray the Lord my soul to keep. If I die before I wake, I pray the Lord my soul to take. Amen


What was I thinking as a young child as I was saying that nighttime prayer?


“Good night mom, if I don’t croak I’ll be seeing you tomorrow morning.”


Not surprisingly,  newer versions of this prayer leave out the dying part. For instance,


…Angels watch me through the night and wake me in the morning light. Amen


Indeed, angels do watch over us and I know God does have me wrapped in his loving arms, so I am ready for anything. Even a good nights sleep.


If you are having trouble sleeping, try thanking God for filling you with peace and expect it to happen.


Psalm 1

February 10th, 2015




2 But they delight in the law of the Lord, meditating on it day and night.



Law in the Old Testament is a way of life given by God. It is not a list of rules to follow as much as it is guideposts for healthy living. When you are appreciating God’s Word and you are becoming familiar with it, it expands who you are.



Why would knowing the scripture be better than not knowing it?
