  1. I can’t count the times I have prayed to God for forgiveness for acting just like the Israelites did in the desert. This was a powerful devotional and so right on!!!

    by the way,,Happy New Year dear brother.

  2. Oh Amen Brother Jim! “This is why I am learning to be satisfied with knowing less and believing more”, this is where I am finding myself and it’s a good place to rest. Amen? God is too big for my human mind to comprehend. Thank you so much for allowing God to use you to minister to me today. I will be His living sacrifice (all of me) as my logical form of worship. Amen and amen!!! I thank God for you brother.

  3. I love this post, Jim! Here is the line that really gets me…

    “It made me wonder how many times I’ve over-stayed my welcome in one place because I murmured, complained and doubted God’s word.”

    Gonna have to mull this one over for awhile… thanks for the insights! Refreshing and challenging, as always!

  4. A very timely post at the beginning of a new year Jim.
    I know in my life I certainly would have faltered if I had known the giants I would face.
    While its important to count the cost, we cannot ignore that call and investment of God in our lives. I must go on with what God has for me and find His faithfulness surfacing time and again.
    Thanks for the reminder; its faith, not sight.

  5. Jim, I want your permission to publish your “Scriptures that Bother Me” articles on my church’s website with credit to you.

    Periodically, as I examine my life with Jesus, I look to read the Word and familiar passages in a new light. I’m not looking for new revelations, but I don’t like to just believe what everyone else is believing for the sake of believing.

    You’ve got some inspiring insight and I want to share them with my church.

  6. I would be honored for you to publish my articles on your website. I pray they are a challenge an encouragement to everyone who reads them.
