Finding And Keeping Your Joy

When We Live Under Labels Instead Of Our True Identity

If someone asked you to describe yourself in one word, what would it be? Last month I wrote about the radical love Hosea had, first for God, and then for his adulterous wife. (You can read it here.)

When Being Amazing Isn’t Good Enough To Find A Mate

Have you ever felt pressured to improve who you are to get what you want? Of course you have; we all have. In fact, that is one of the most dangerous thoughts in singleness: I am alone because there is something wrong with me. If you are a female and over a certain age – 12 – you will inevitably …

Waiting On God: Be Sent And Don’t Just Go

While they were worshiping the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said, “Set apart for me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.” So after they had fasted and prayed, they placed their hands on them and sent them off.
