Mental Efficiency and Other Hints to Men and Women is one of the many self help books that Bennett wrote, the most famous of these being How to Live 24 Hours a Day. It is highly readable, amusing and offers wisdom in an extremely palatable form. Bennett's gift for analysis and his knowledge of philosophy and psychology make this book a valuable treasure trove of handy hints to improve our lives. Though it was first published in 1911, it remains as relevant, wise and useful as it did more tha ...

It’s so easy, with our strong human desires—desires to be liked, to be loved, to be accepted, to find comfort, to find peace and joy and security—it’s so easy to view God as something that can make us look good to other people, something that can allow us to think well of ourselves . . […]
 
I am going to be honest. When I hear Holy Spirit, the voice of the Father penetrating the darkness of our world, saying He knows our pain, my heart gets heavy. It brings back all the pain I’ve endured. It reminds me of all the pain the people I love have endured. It reminds me […]
 
Dry. Hostile. Desolate. In a desert, water is scarce; the environment is harsh and unforgiving; it’s intense in both its heat and its cold. There is little shade, little food, little protection. In a desert we’re exposed, vulnerable, desperate even. And abandoned maybe. Because few people choose to enter a desert. But sometimes we can’t […]…
 
We can be hard on ourselves. After all, we are taught, by this world of ours, to be always looking for ways to improve—because we are never good enough. Get in shape. Be more productive. Get better informed. Most of us are a million miles from imagining that we are ever okay, just as we […]
 
Jesus encourages us to approach Him with childlike hearts. With hearts that know they are loved. Hearts that trust they are safe. Hearts that are willing to take risks. Unguarded hearts that can grow and learn. When disciples asked Him, “Who is considered to be the greatest in heaven’s kingdom realm?” Jesus told them, “Learn […]…
 
When Solomon became King over Israel, he asked God for wisdom—and God granted it to him. “God gave Solomon wisdom and understanding beyond measure, and breadth of mind like the sand on the seashore, so that Solomon’s wisdom surpassed the wisdom of all the people of the east and all the wisdom of Egypt.” That’s […]…
 
The book of John begins like this: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through him, and without him was not anything made that was made. In him was life, and the life was […]
 
We don’t need to lie. We are safe in God’s care. We are not at risk—not the way we always think we are. We don’t need to twist truth to protect ourselves. We can trust our Father. We can trust our King. We can trust our Friend. The root of our duplicity is something to […]
 
God, three in one—Father, Jesus, Holy Spirit. He—they—epitomize community. Rich, complete, connection. Nothing is missing. They are never lonely. Father, Jesus, Holy Spirit each uniquely themselves and each uniquely One and the same. There is no enmity between them. There is no resentment. There is no competition. There is no one-upmanship. The ...…
 
I want to live seeing and experiencing the brilliance of God everywhere. Everywhere I look. Everywhere I turn. But I don’t. Not as often as I’d like to, anyway. But I do believe what Holy Spirit says. I believe it’s true. And I believe what the apostle Paul wrote in Ephesians 4:6: that there is […]
 
Holy Spirit, in this episode, says something pretty amazing: we can be free of shame and fear. How would that feel? Wouldn’t that kind of freedom be amazing? And He also said that it’s not something that we have to do—it’s something that He does. He destroys these things. Not us. All we need to […]
 
We have everything we need to love, to make a difference in this world. We are not powerless. Our Jesus stands with us, right now, a twinkle in his eyes, saying “Hey, what do you want to do today? What is on your heart? Can we go together? You and Me?” He loves being with […]
 
Worrying feels bad. Being in a state of worry, feels bad . . . But it can feel kind of good, too, huh? I mean, if there’s something we can’t change, or something we can’t figure out—at least we can worry. When there’s nothing else we can do about a problem, about our hardship or […]
 
We’ve talked about it before here, but the story of the Prodigal Son is probably Jennifer’s and my favorite of Jesus’ parables. We love it because of how well it captures the depth and breadth and character of our Father God’s love, how well it demonstrates His true heart toward us, his sons and daughters. […]…
 
Holy Spirit said, “The most powerful thing you can ever do in your life, each time you believe the lie that you are orphaned, forgotten, alone and unloved, is to break that agreement.” He says we must break the lies that we are isolated, abandoned by God. Because the truest truth is that we are […]
 
“The great and terrible clash between the Kingdom of God and the kingdom of darkness continues,” wrote author John Eldredge. “They are fighting for the human heart.” But we can’t see it, can we? This battle that Scripture says we are in the midst of is occurring in the spiritual realm. And we are physical […]…
 
We live in a culture that worships doing, fixing, tweaking, improving. Nothing is ever good enough—fast enough, smart enough, strong enough, beautiful enough. Humankind has made it its business to work and work and worry and worry. We’re inundated with messages—from traditional media and social media—that offer solutions, or encourage us to fin ...…
 
When we are in relationship with God, there is always an exchange. Many of them, actually. We offer things to Him or surrender them–our time, our attention, our idols, our sin. And He offers us things, in return: His presence, restoration, freedom, righteousness. Though not on the same level, when we are in relationship with […]…
 
It is good to ponder God and His mysteries. The wise King Solomon wrote: “It is the glory of God to conceal things, but the glory of kings is to search things out.” That is from Proverbs chapter 25, verse 2. And there’s so much we don’t know about Him?and so much He wants us […]
 
This isn’t easy. Addressing pain that’s been pushed down. Acknowledging wounds—the ways we’ve been hurt—whether they’re in the long ago past, or whether they happened just yesterday. But acknowledging pain is important. Not because we’re able to fix any of it—but because God can. He won’t change the past. But He will attend to our […]…
 
One of my and Jennifer’s favorite daily prayers is attributed by ancient tradition to Saint Patrick, who’s also known as the Apostle to Ireland. This prayer is called “The Breastplate of St. Patrick” or “The Deer’s Cry.” And we love it because it’s beautiful and just a great prayer to start a day. Let me […]…
 
Imagine a child getting ready before school. Imagine it’s cold outside—cold and windy and raining. Now imagine that, before she heads off for the day, the girl’s parents give her a brand new jacket. And when she goes outside, she feels warm in it. It’s comfortable, she feels safe in it. Immediately, she loves that […]…
 
It’s easy to assume that Jesus’ disciples were just special, that they were different from us. It’s easy to conclude that they must have had special wisdom or some super abilities—beyond anything we could ever muster. And if we do assume these things, how could we not become resigned to just this: going to church, […]…
 
Our Father God gives us everything we need to live and thrive. We lack nothing—unless, of course, we reject His gifts and His provision. Now, you might respond, “I don’t reject those things! I welcome His help!” But we do reject His gifts and provision. We do it all the time. It’s our nature. It’s […]…
 
And so, very often, we stop doing what we’re made to do. We stop looking for help from Jesus. We try to go it alone by coping alone. We isolate and look for escape. We deny and run and numb ourselves to the pain and fear—when what we’re meant to do is stand in them. […]
 
To follow Jesus means surrendering the old lives we’ve been living—with all our old belief systems and all our flawed thinking. Because Jesus wants our whole hearts, not just a small part of them. He wants His healing and goodness and love to penetrate and saturate our entire beings and every part of our lives—not […]…
 
Does joy ever feel elusive to you? Do you ever have a hard time getting there and staying there—what with the routine and the distraction and the trouble of everyday life? We do too. But the way Holy Spirit talks about it, it doesn’t sound like it’s actually elusive at all, does it? It sounds […]
 
The apostle Paul gave us a great picture of trust when he wrote about the church in Macedonia in 2 Corinthians chapter eight. And the picture is striking. And challenging. It sure challenges us. Because Paul kind of called out the Corinthians. No, I shouldn’t say “called out.” He called them up—up into a new […]…
 
Jesus’ love astonishes me. It just . . . astonishes . . . me. Here we are, on this Christmas day, our hearts feeling so many different emotions: We might be full of love and joy and gladness . . . or full of sorrow . . . or loneliness . . . or regret. […]
 
Scripture says, “Long before he laid down earth’s foundations,” God chose us and “settled on us as the focus of his love.” That’s from Ephesians chapter one. He chose you to be His beloved son, His beloved daughter. He chose me. He “predestined us for adoption to himself.” He gave us “full legal adoption as […]…
 
There is a heaviness in the world we cannot deny. Just look at the news. This heaviness is everywhere. And even if you decided to avoid the news, you can still feel the weight of it, just walking through your everyday life—hurt, injustice, your heart, along with all of creation, aching, longing. Whether we recognize […]…
 
There is much to celebrate at Christmas time—and much to distract us too. It’s a season of goodness and love. But it’s also a season of noise and pressure. And it can be a season of loneliness and sorrow and loss. It’s easy to get caught up in the invitations—or temptations—to go and do and […]
 
When I was young, my family had two nativity sets. And after Thanksgiving, both would appear somewhere in our house. One was made out of olive wood. Hand-carved camels and wise men, Mary kneeling, baby Jesus in the manger. My grandmother brought that one back from Israel, but it wasn’t delicate. It was solid and […]…
 
Advent marks the season of turning, of leaning our hearts and minds and souls toward the celebration of Jesus’ birth. This time is for appreciating and rejoicing in the Savior who has come—and for noticing our longing for the Savior who is still to come. The word “Advent” comes from the Latin word adventus, meaning […]…
 
When this world fell, so long ago, everything broke. All relationships broke. Our relationships with each other, our relationships with ourselves, and our relationships with God—none of them are what they were . . . or what they will be. All of those relationships will be restored. But because we don’t know Him now as […]…
 
If we try to figure out what leadership should look like by looking at leaders around us—at work, in our government, in our culture—things can get pretty confusing. So many of these “leaders” lead with wrong motives. They lead out of pride and greed, for acclaim and wealth—not for the good of their followers or […]…
 
Holy Spirit just said: “I have something for you to do now. A place to go. A way to see. And it takes looking deeper to find it.” Do you know that place? Your place? Do you want to find it? This place that Jesus created and keeps just for you—just for you and Him […]
 
Our God is not a faraway God, off busy somewhere else. He’s not a King who lives in some distant castle with high walls. It’s just the opposite, in fact. He is here. And His business is you. What He’s most interested in is relationship with you. Connection with you. Conversation with you. That’s what […]…
 
God wants to help us identify what’s getting in the way of knowing Him more. Specifically, He wants to help us recognize any and all misconceptions we hold about who He is. I love this invitation. Because thinking rightly about God matters—it matters a lot. “The most portentous fact about any man [or any woman],” […]…
 
Holy Spirit gives three things to do when we find ourselves having fallen into sin . . . again. He said we must confess. And we must repent. And then he said something a bit unexpected. He said we must accept His love. We’re all familiar with the first two steps. Confession—being honest and owning […]…
 
What are you going through, my friend? What kind of season is this for you? Is it one of suffering? One of challenge? How hard is life for you in this present season? And how do you feel? Do you ever feel weary or frustrated or angry? Do you ever wish that something about this […]
