On a cold winter day some years ago: A little boy, about 10-years-old, was standing before a shoe store barefooted, peering through the window, and shivering with cold.

A lady approached the young boy and said,”My, dear you’re in such deep thought staring in that window!” “I was asking God to give me a pair of shoes,” was the boy’s reply.

The lady took him by the hand, went into the store, and asked the clerk to get half a dozen pairs of socks for the boy. She then asked if he could give her a basin of water and a towel. He quickly brought them to her. She took the little fellow to the back part of the store and, removing her gloves, knelt down, washed his little feet, and dried them with the towel.

By this time, the clerk had returned with the socks placing a pair upon the boy’s feet, she purchased him a pair of shoes. She tied up the remaining pairs of socks and gave them to him. She patted him on the head and said, ‘No doubt, you will be more comfortable now.’

As she turned to go, the astonished kid caught her by the hand, and looking up into her face, with tears
in his eyes, asked her. “Are you God’s wife?”

Do you have any repetitive patterns in your life? If so, what are they? Where did these patterns begin, and what actions…

Why is Change Hard?

Why is Change Hard?

We often are determined to make change hard. I once saw a couple that was having major problems because the wife did not want to clean the house and the husband did not think it was his job. Except for this one thing, they told me, they were very happy. I said to them, “You…

The Kingdom is Yours

The Kingdom is Yours

Being angry and disconnected from the Creator who gave you life is like having a parent who, unbeknownst to you, is very, very rich. You have denied yourself a relationship with this parent all your life, and one day you realize that you could have inherited amazing riches had you been willing to open your…
