The Resolution Psalm

The Resolution Psalm

People have shared great New Year resolutions with me. But none of them are like this psalm I read the other day. How can one psalm capture the heart of Christian living so well?

How to Let Go of Bad Habits

Do you know how to let go of bad habits? From my own experience I know that self-help does not work, right? So what to do? Are we doomed?

According to Augustine his conversion was prompted by a childlike voice he heard telling him in a sing-song voice, “Take up and read”. Hence he…
