Truckload Of Grace

This year has proven to be a challenge. It’s been a combination of pressing into growing as a wholehearted person and embracing more vulnerability and bravery. In stepping out onto these uncharted waters, I have been met with fierce resistance that has caused me to question my core values. I spent hours praying and pondering if being brave and vulnerable …

When God Says ‘I Will Meet You’ In The Process

Life is filled with lessons and growth when we go through a process. During the processes of life, some of us may grow weary, feel impatient or get discouraged. We believe God will come through in our lives through faith, but what happens when the situation looks NOTHING like it’s supposed to? Faith can be a hard thing to walk through. …

Communion: A Table Before Your Enemies

A few weeks ago, we had communion at church. Actually, that morning I had the opportunity to lead the communion portion of the service, which had caused me to amp up my prayer life that weekend.

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.

Dear Father in Heaven, May I bask in the newness of Your love and mercy every morning, and extend this grace to the one in front of me. Make me a channel of Your steadfast love (Lamentations 3:22-23). The righteous gives and does not hold back (Proverbs 21:26); create in me a righteous, giving heart. Give me a heart that …

Standing In The Gap For One Another

Recently my church has been studying the book of Nehemiah. The prophet Nehemiah has been called by God back to Israel to rebuild the walls around Jerusalem. It was a difficult time in history with lots of opposition to the rebuilding. There were times during the rebuilding when they stood with one hand on the work with the other hand …

Does Your New Year Resolution Include Jesus?

By now, there’s a good chance your Christmas tree has been taken down and all the pine needles vacuumed up, if you had chosen to go for the real thing. All the lights have been unplugged and put away neatly (so as not to find them tangled) for next year. There are no longer signs of wrapping paper, but presents …

The Most Important Prayer Before Marriage

It is OH SO EASY to see the weaknesses in other people. If we aren’t careful, our brains can size someone up based on their lack of social I.Q., the way their insecurity shows in their nervous little laugh, and their glaring sin. But wait … does that mean it is easy for them to see the weaknesses in me? …
