    The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. –Psalm 34:18 (NIV) When you feel insignificant, abandoned or rejected, remember God sees where you are.

When You Feel Like You Don’t Belong

I still remember the day these words were spoken to me at a prophetic training event at church. “I just felt like the Lord says sometimes you feel downcast about yourself. I saw you with a crown on your head.  And He just wanted you to know … He wants you to see you how He sees you. He says …

Finding The Peace Of God When You Aren’t Living The American Dream

New opportunities can be scary. Even opportunities that we have been praying and believing God for: a new promotion, new marriage, new home.

Cutting Ties With Your Past

  I recently took a trip to a place I once called home. What I found was not home. I found a land and a people I once knew. One that I no longer connected to. A land where I no longer felt like me. It’s a strange thing to leave a place one person and return a short time …

Do You Restrict Jesus In Your Life?

    So they bound Jesus, led him away and handed him over to Pilate. –Mark 15:1b Jesus — the Creator of everything — being bound. When I read the story of Jesus’ arrest before His crucifixion, the words “they bound Jesus” jump off the page. Think about this: According to the first few verses in John chapter 1, nothing exists …

Overcoming What Is Holding You Back From The Life You Want

We are only a few short months into 2017, but I already feel like I’ve wasted much of it. I just feel as if I should be farther along in this race, but I’m not. And that bothers me. It’s been nagging my mind pretty frequently and is a familiar topic in my prayer life. As I stood in church …

How To Bring Order To The Chaos In Your Life

We experience so much chaos in our lives on a daily basis that we get used to it — and think it’s normal.
