How Can You Forgive?

How Can You Forgive?

When you have a very personal and very emotional situation in your life, it’s easy to feel isolated and alone – “I need to talk about this, but am I safe to bring it up?” It’s worse when you are afraid that you and God are on opposite sides of the issue. That’s where one man in a prison Bible study found himself stuck.

Why Does God Let Me Suffer?

Why Does God Let Me Suffer?

“But those who wait for the Lord will receive new strength. They will lift up their wings and soar like eagles. They will run and not be weary. They will walk and not become tired” (Isaiah 40:31).

What a blessing to run and not be weary and to walk and not become tired, but so often in our world that does not happen.

Yes, for me to live is Christ, and to die is gain. Philippians 1:21 (EHV)

Before I joined Institutional Ministries and started hanging out at a hospital most days of the week, I had very little understanding of medical care and what goes on in hospitals.

Facing Freedom

The Saturday evening prison worship service had ended. As the men were exiting the gym, one young man came to me looking very agitated and asked, “Could you pray with me?”

Informed Care

Informed Care

On the evening of that first day of the week, when the disciples were together, with the doors locked for fear of the Jewish leaders, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you!” John 20:19

When Jesus walked into that locked room on the night of his resurrection and declared, “Peace be with you,” he was giving his disciples exactly what they needed for the state of mind they were in after the traumatic past few days. Today, we might describe what Jesus did as Trauma-Informed Care. Jesus met his disciples where they were, and acknowledging the trauma they had witnessed, he assured them that they were not alone.
