One of the things God is teaching us through the ministry of ATCM is perseverance. Todd and I have been believers for the majority of our adult life, and we’ve spent most of it serving in full time Christian ministry. You would think we had this idea of “perseverance” covered, right?
Are you easily distracted?
I know I am! That is why I am so thankful for God’s Word. It continually brings us back to what is important, what is true, and what is life-changing.
This is why we are going on a 40-day journey of Spiritual Awareness! As we approach Easter this year, we want our minds and hearts to be focused on who God is, how He works, and what He wants to do through our lives – right where we live, work and play.
What does the 40-Day Journey look like?
I love to talk about exercise and encourage others to stay fit, but for me, it’s just not that exciting. As a diabetic, exercise is so good for me to control my sugar levels. I know that in my head but honestly, it’s not something to which I am truly committed.
Three years ago, our neighbor had an elliptical they no longer needed and asked if we would like to have it. I am always looking for a bargain, and it was free, so I quickly said “Sure!” I called a friend to help transport it, borrowed a neighbor’s trailer, and we rolled it into our basement. The elliptical was in great shape and eliminated all my excuses not to exercise! Read more about Help For Those Who Don’t Want To Exercise
Todd played the 150 holes of golf today at Orchard Trace Golf Club in Hendersonville. What a beautiful day God blessed us with! He started around 9:00 am when it was a chilly 40 degrees, but the day warmed up nicely. Sean Barrie came out to keep Todd on track, keeping record of every Read more about 150 Holes of Golf Update![…]
What keeps you from accomplishing what you set out to do? Often we become excited about a particular opportunity or God-given assignment, only to fall to the wayside before we reach our goal. How can we remain faithful to the God-given mission of sharing the gospel with our friends, neighbors and co-workers?
One huge distraction in following Christ and fulfilling our mission is a wrong perspective.
If you read the news headlines, you might be wondering if there’s any hope for the success of the Christian movement. But to answer, we have to define success in God’s terms.
Just exactly, what is success according to Scripture?
Could success for a leader be defined by what happen that leader is no longer present? Whether they leave, or die? What happens to those who are left behind? Do they carry on the movement or does the movement die with the leader?
Acts 17:26 is a favorite scripture of ours – a key concept in God’s inspiration for establishing Around The Corner Ministries.
This verse is the centerpiece of a message Paul preached in Athens. He was in Athens, waiting for Silas and Timothy to catch up with him. By proclaiming Christ, he had stirred up quite the controversy. The religious Jews in Thessalonica and Berea had agitated the crowds, causing an uproar against Paul and his message. The believers had sent Paul to Athens until things settled down.
Do you ever get overwhelmed?
We live in a world that is pretty close to falling apart. If you subscribe to the young earth philosophy, sin has been having its way for around 6,000 years! Do we really wonder that the evil that surrounds us is taking its toll?
About 1,900 years ago, Paul had the same thought. Listen to what he warned Timothy about. Read more about What I Have I Give To You
The following was taken from Randy Sprinkle’s book, Becoming A Lifestyle Prayerwalker. It is so powerfully written I wanted to share it with you today. It appears on Day 2 of his study, and is addressed to those who desire to walk with God and labor with Him in the world. He speaks of a question that you must answer…and you are the only one on earth who can answer it.

Scripture refers to Jesus as the Church’s True Cornerstone. We first see this in Isaiah 28:16:
Therefore, thus says the Lord God, “Behold, I am laying in Zion a stone, a tested stone, a costly cornerstone for the foundation, firmly placed. He who believes in it will not be disturbed.”
How do we know this is Christ? Peter confirms it, quoting from Isaiah.
