I am intrigued by the question of why most of us struggle to find balance in a life of prayer and intimacy with Jesus. I could list a dozen reasons--too busy, too many distractions, no discipline, disappointment with God, don't know how, and on and on. But what if I told you that from where I stand, the number one reason we struggle is simply that we're trying too hard? That was the theme of my message--We are the Journey--last week. You can listen to it below. At the end I offer a self-assessment that helps you determine if indeed you are trying too hard. Click here to print it out for yourself, and listen to the message for the explanation and some grace-filled encouragement.

While I have always loved the story of the Cross and grasping the depths of its meaning has been a life long quest, I never actually had the opportunity to teach or preach on it until last week. So here it is--my first ever verbal message on the cross of Jesus Christ. I have to admit it brought me great joy and I hope it will minister to you this Lenten season.
Each week in Lent I offer a few thoughts on our journey toward the cross.
