In Person

In Body, Heart by Caleb

Whenever possible, it’s better in person. Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works. And let us not neglect our meeting together… (Hebrews 10:24-25) Hand-written is better than typed. Calling is better than writing. In person is better than the phone. When we’re together, our words actually, physically reach the other person …

Peace with Food

In Body, Mind by Caleb

You can enjoy food and not be enslaved by it. The Lord God made all kinds of trees grow out of the ground—trees that were pleasing to the eye and good for food. (Genesis 2:9) Food was always designed to look good, taste good, and be good for the body. The problem with food is when we… * eat what’s not …

Starving College Students

In Body, Soul by Caleb

Having a meal with friends is one of the most “spiritual” things you can do. While they were eating, Jesus took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to his disciples… Matthew 26:26 Hilary leads a group of college girls from a local university. They meet on Thursday evenings and talk about Jesus and God’s …

Too Heavy

In Body, Mind by Caleb

Don’t over-lift, but don’t under-work. I over-did-it at the gym the other day. We were going for our max—the heaviest amount we can do and still lift the weight one time. People around me were lifting heavier. After I completed one lift at a respectable weight (for me), my friend observing said, “You can do way more than that.” I …

Newness: Everyday

In Body, Soul by Caleb

Every time you wake up, it’s a fresh start. Why do we sleep?1. To help remind us that we are not God, and God can be trusted while we’re asleep. 2. To reset our systems to begin again with each NEW day. Every new day is a new beginning. A fresh start. A system reset. We need the new beginnings …

Fun Socks

In Body, Soul by Caleb

Find your flare. Yet you, Lord, are our Father. We are the clay, you are the potter; we are all the work of your hand. Isaiah 64:8 We all have our humanity in common, but we’re 100% unique. The Potter breaks the mold after every new design. God loves variety—there’s proof everywhere you turn! So embrace your uniqueness!! Fun socks …

Fasting

In Body, Mind by Caleb

Fasting is more about being ‘hungry’ than going without. My knees give way from fasting; my body is thin and gaunt. Psalm 109:24 Why would anyone choose to make their body suffer and go without food? Not only do we need food for strength, but we like it for taste. It’s not about losing weight. It’s not about a religious …

Intermission

In Body by Caleb

Take a break. Call it intermission. Then God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work of creating that he had done. Genesis 2:3 Ok, so the same high school choir performance I mentioned yesterday was complete with a 15-minute intermission. The performers took a quick break to rest, change costumes, …

Experiencing God in Coffee

In Body, Soul by Caleb

I’m not promoting bean worship, but let’s be real. People love their coffee. But I cry to you for help, Lord; in the morning my prayer comes before you. Psalm 88:13 For many, coffee turns their morning mourning into dancing. My dad goes to bed thinking about morning coffee. My wife puts 2-3 cups away before contributing to the world …

Helping You Helps We

In Body by Caleb

Instead of focusing on what you can get, focus on how you can serve. For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others… -Jesus (Matthew 20:28) I’ve been corresponding with a couple friends today. Both have projects that they are pursuing and asked for my involvement. I love these guys, and I want them …
