Uncontainable

The Scriptures mention a brief, but important, list of “uncontainables” — 1. Uncontainable offerings upon the bronze altar that Solomon had made (2 Chron 7:7); 2.

Under the Radar

We’re never off God’s grid: He knows it all before it happens and sees it all when it does. Not only is the darkness like light to Him, but our very thoughts He perceives from afar. God never needs GPS to track us, for there is no place where we can flee from His presence...

“Resurgo”

Although considered a dead language, Latin is still used in the creation of new words and remains a “go to” language of many scholars. Consider these familiar phrases: nulli secundus / nulli secunda - “Second to none”... vincit qui se vincit - “S/he conquers who conquers her/himself”... Deo Optimo Maximo (D.O.M.) - “For God, the best and greatest” (motto of the Benedictines)...

For Auld Lang Syne

Written by Robert Burns in 1788, “Auld Lang Syne” is a Scots poem set to the tune of a folk song. Well known in many countries, it is traditionally sung to celebrate the start of the New Year at the stroke of midnight...

God Has Taken Notice

Have you ever given up on God because you thought He had given up on you? Have you prayed for years about your heart’s desire, searching the horizon for the faintest sign that God had heard your prayers, yet seeing no outward confirmation that He had even taken notice?
