Reflections - Love That's Returned to Sender

Writer Author Shana Schutte
Type Christian Column  - Devotionals
Posted Tuesday, May 11, 2010

I wish I could sit with you and we could talk about love. No, not about the kind that makes a woman's heart swell. Not the kind a mother has for her child, or the kind a husband has for his wife--but the kind of love that isn't returned. I wish we could chat because I'm certain you could tell me a story about a time when you gave your love away and it came back, like an unopened letter marked "ret ... Read Christian Column

Reflections - The Danger of Desire

Writer Author Shana Schutte

Posted Tuesday, May 26, 2009

Every woman fears that her greatest anxieties will become reality; that somehow things like her hair always being bushy, constantly having PMS, or gaining three-hundred pounds will happen. Sometimes she even battles these fears in her dreams, which is why one night while I slept, I dreamt I was being chased down a long, narrow hallway by a giant chocolate donut which screamed, "Eat me! Eat me!" Ap ... Read Christian Column

Type Christian Column  - Devotionals
Posted Tuesday, May 19, 2009

Have you ever wondered why God sometimes seems inconsistent in compassion and love? Why He answers the prayer of a little girl for a puppy, but denies the request of a man to be healed from cancer? Why He allows school shootings, AIDS and terrorist attacks, but gives a man a new job when he asks? If we consider the woes of humanity long enough and believe the lies that God is involved here (but ... Read Christian Column

The good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and the evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart. - Luke 6:45 NIV Oh, the joy of getting older!

Writer Author Shana Schutte
Type Christian Column  - Devotionals
Posted Wednesday, March 11, 2009

There once was a man who netted three trout from a mountain stream and carefully placed them side by side on a thin slice of grass. Before he removed them from the water, they were like liquid ballet in motion. Fluid. Graceful. Vibrant. Alive. After he netted them, it was another story. As the trout lay on the grass, they were motionless. Their eyes were fixed. They gasped for air, and the ... Read Christian Column

Type Christian Column  - Devotionals
Posted Wednesday, February 25, 2009

What Kind of Love Is That? by Shana Schutte I couldn't sleep last night because something I read online hit me hard before I hit the pillow. So when I should have been getting my beauty sleep, I was thinking about love instead. Around 9 p.m., I visited a blog written by a man named Tom who lost his wife just a few short months ago to breast cancer. As part of his journey through grief, he' ... Read Christian Column

Posted Monday, February 09, 2009

When I was seven, my older sister and I heard that a circus was coming to our little Southern Idaho town. We couldn't wait. When the big day arrived, we walked to the high school football field a half mile away, found a seat high on the bleachers, and waited for the show to start. I don't remember anything about the circus--except for one terrifying incident. Part way through the show, the ani ... Read Christian Column

Are you so foolish? After beginning with the Spirit, are you now trying to attain your goal by human effort? - Galatians 3:3 NIV When New Year's Day comes, will you have a list of resolutions?
