Please note, as you comb through these articles, that I (Cogny Mann) don't necessarily agree with everything you might find in the articles in these posts. In fact, I think it's fair to say that I'm pretty sure I disagree with some things said by everybody I repost in here. In fact, some of them are mine and I don't know I'd agree now with everything I said when I first wrote it. But have a look.
Peruse these articles and ask God to speak to you through them. These people are loved by God and feel called to write even if they don't agree with me. And I'm open to the possibility that maybe they are right and I am wrong. Maybe you should be, too. "As iron sharpens iron..."
There is a post in “The Times” out of the U. K. that outlines a plan to send 300,000 new bibles into Iran. It is true. Jesus is alive, is very real and very much on the move around the world. The chinese church is currently mobilizing 1,000,000 missionaries to
I get the most interesting texts from my boys sometimes. They all live on their own now; some close by, some pretty far away. But whether near or far, we all try keep in touch. They know I have my phone on all the time – in fact, they know
Every once in a while I will read something in a book that will grip my attention. And when I do, I stop reading and reflect on it. I think when something jumps out at you, it just might be God trying to get your attention. All too often in prayer,
Francis Frangipane, in his book, “The Three Battlegrounds,” says, “the devil traffics in unconfessed sin.” This is so true. We will sometimes carry things for years as our own struggles, living forever in cycles of guilt, shame, confession, forgiveness, stumbling, guilt, shame… and yet, until we are brutally honest about
We All Know About Fifty Shades Of Grey. Maybe you haven’t thought about it like this before. It is Sunday morning. Pastor Jones stands in the pulpit, his heart burning with a message about how important it is to be passionate about our relationship with God, and how much we

We All Have Stories The longer you travel this road of life, the more stories you remember from the journey. I remember this one for how it demonstrates how there are many different ways that God can speak to a person about the condition of his or her soul. I used
This popped up in my news feed. Thought it was worth while. This one should make you feel good…keep praying, and maybe we still have hope in our world. There’s hope for humanity Tags: feel-good, heroes, selflessness Related posts No related posts.

People often ask me, “why do I not hear God?” For some time now, I’ve tried to get up early in the morning to pray. I believe, as most Christians do, that it’s important to try to spend time in the word of God and let Him speak to me
You Know In Your Head But It Still Doesn’t Make Sense Recently, having dinner one day while on a cruise ship, I heard conversation going on at a nearby table. “I don’t understand how this boat can float. I just can’t wrap my head around it. I get the physics
There are some things that happen and they stick with you. I remember a moment very clearly that was one of those “stick with you” moments. Actually, it was fairly recently, and I hope it sticks with me forever, for the urgency it created in my soul at that moment.
If anyone has struggled with an addiction or struggled with a besetting sin, he or she knows how difficult it can be to break free. And so often, in the struggle and the turmoil, there is the questioning of God and of His mercy and His wisdom in letting the
Being “Still” Is Not Doing Nothing Being still before the Lord is not inactivity. It is refined activity. Being still is choosing to “do nothing,” but not with the idea of merely shutting your brain off and disengaging to relax or unwind; it is a purposeful disengaging from all the
Christianity Today sent out an email recently about the annual “International Day Of prayer” which is April 23rd of this year. I have to confess that in times past, I’ve not paid much attention to these events. It’s not that I don’t believe in prayer. It’s just that I don’t
I remember, back in 1994, hearing a bit of a hullaballoo about the “Toronto Blessing” (a revival that is purported to have broken out at the Toronto Airport Vineyard Church in 1994, now known as “Catch The Fire“). It is one of those stories that, depending on your persuasion, leaves
There might be something wrong with pastors in America. But you could be doing some things that don’t help. And maybe, you could do something to make a difference. In a recent post by Mario Maurillo Ministries about why American Preachers will not unify against the anti-God White House there were some
How do you get victory over besetting sins – a sinful habit or way of thinking? Many people know the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat over some particular struggle with sin; they feel good about themselves when they get it right; they beat themselves up over it
There are times in life where trusting God is difficult, because we do not always understand what God is doing. There is a part in every one of us that recognizes what it is to see justice, and that part of us sometimes causes us to be angry when we
There is peace to be found in the chaos Sometimes, in the business of life, it is all so easy to be overwhelmed by the circumstances of life. It’s not so bad sometimes; but when you feel the weight of the world on your shoulders, it is so easy to spin
“If the world hated me, it will hate you, too.” (John 15:18) Our 21st century, North American culture is a veritable “freedom utopia” for Christians, at least as far as it compares to the rest of the world. (So far, anyway. It appears that voters in the US signed themselves
Life is a series of ups and downs. For most of us, the journey is not always a steady-state of happiness, focus or peace in our surroundings. We all struggle with varying levels of discontent about our circumstances, frustration with our tasks or limits to our situations and the like. From
