Relationship 101: Commit Or Quit

I love asking questions. I’m a curious person. I think this is a good quality, because I used to be pretty bossy. (I’m the eldest child, so it came naturally for me.) But now I try to keep my opinion to myself and just ask questions. I just love finding out how people make decisions and why. I love how …

Comfort For Those Grieving Alone

My mother’s hands were cold and still. She lay with her eyes closed, her only movement coming from the effort of breathing. I had been by her side all night, listening to the rhythm of her breath, shaking with the shock that my mother was truly dying from the cancer we prayed God would heal. Around 5:15 a.m., her breathing …

The Unwanted Wedding Gift

When a gift comes wrapped in beautiful packaging, we eagerly rip into the wrapping. But what about the times when we are entrusted with unfamiliar gifts? Gifts wrapped in disappointment and confusion, sorrow and pain? If we know how to remind ourselves of the goodness of the Giver, He will grant us the courage to slowly unwrap the gifts and …

3 Things I’ve Learned Since Stepping Out On Faith

Christians hear a lot about stepping out on faith, something that all believers should do in some way. Of course, active faith looks different for everyone, and we never fully know what it will entail (if we did, then it wouldn’t be faith!). The struggles of daily living can sometimes require just as much faith as a major, dramatic life …

When Transition Gets You Down

I just want to live in one place for more than two years. This is a refrain that I’ve said to myself over and over again for a half a decade. Transition seems to be the modern way of life. Few have long careers but series after series of jobs. Few people (singles especially, it seems) live in one place …

Hearing God’s Voice

The kids and I were headed to a friend’s house to spend a few hours playing together. On the way, I decided to stop by Burger King and get all of us a treat — chocolate milk shakes, yummy! I pulled into the drive-thru and was greeted with, “Good morning, welcome to Burger King. How are you doing today?” The …

When You’re Struggling With Rejection

Rejection — it’s inevitable. Sooner or later, every one of us will experience it. Some of us, more than once. And every time it happens, we can’t help but ask ourselves some questions. Usually the first question is Why? Then come the thoughts we rehearse over and over, replaying that moment of rejection … wishing we’d asked more questions or said less in response. Sometimes …

Fasting From What Comes Out Of My Mouth

Time and again God brings me to my knees over my heart attitude expressed out of my mouth. More than once, God has led me to fast of negative, critical, judgmental and complaining words. Why a fast of words? Is that a legitimate application of fasting? The Hebrew word “fast” means to cover the mouth. For me, it is harder …

Our Counterfeit Culture

Today’s single person faces a much different and more challenging cultural climate than previous generations. So many cultural pressures invade and influence every aspect of life. Social media, television, movies, magazines, educational environments, and liberal governmental rulings all encourage vast and ever-expanding cultural shifts. Some people consider this simply a progressive mindset, similar to the changing music or fashion trends from the …

God’s Perspective For Hope In Disappointment

Listen to the Word of God for you in Romans 15:13. “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”  Be blessed to let God separate you from the soulish bonds that have held you captive in disappointment …
