When You Believe In The Impossible Despite What You See

There is a desire in your heart. It’s been there for a while. Too long, if you’re honest. It’s a hope for a godly marriage, a yearning to belong somewhere or a passion for God to use you in a unique way. God has promised the impossible, but you’ve grown weary in the waiting. You are ever questioning life’s little …

Practical Atheism For Single Christians

As followers of Christ, we understand that faith is the main source of our spiritual identity. We’ve read in the Bible that “faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen” (Hebrews 11:1). We been taught stuff like “Without faith, we cannot please God” (Hebrews 11:6a) and “ask in faith without doubting” (James 1:6a). Yet …

An Adulterous Heart Involves More Than Having An Affair

Do you have an adulterous heart? Now, before shutting me down or brushing aside the question, please understand this isn’t aimed at your sexual morality or integrity. It is aimed at your heart. Reading the book of Jeremiah, I become aware of his keen insight into the human heart. Not the actual, physical, blood-pumping heart, but each person’s core desires. …

Is Your Insecurity Like A Tiny Barking Dog?

How does your insecurity express itself? When I’m walking my 150-pound English mastiff through the neighborhood, she struts her stuff. Her tawny fur shines in the gentle breeze.

The Difference Between Peace With God And Peace Of God

There is a world of difference between peace with God and the peace of God. When a person accepts Christ as Lord and personal Savior, he establishes peace with God. As a result of salvation, God’s anger toward sin is appeased through Christ’s substitutionary sacrifice and peace with God is established (Romans 5:1). As a regenerated, reconciled child of God, …

Podcast: Perfectionism And Performance

When you don’t have a spouse, you tend to process things God is showing you with friends. I recently started a podcast with the intention of letting others hear what God is doing in my single life.

What Is Your Faith Focused On?

Over the course of the summer, I felt a shift in my spirit that was hard to shake. It was a good shift and reminded me that I’m a day closer to my destiny, a step closer in my purpose, and one more moment away from meeting my future husband. Week after week, God confirms something new in me — …

Are We Becoming Comfortable With Compromise?

In Matthew 12:35-47, Jesus encouraged living in a state of watchfulness for His return. It will be good for those servants whose master finds them watching when he comes. A wise follower of Jesus will live his or her life in such a manner that at no time will the Lord’s return catch them in an embarrassing, compromising or even …
