A Culture Of Honor

Recently I read Philippians 2:1-5 with new spiritual eyes as if for the first time with joy in my spirit, yes, but also with deep conviction. Here Paul painted a picture of the consideration and grace we owe one another in God’s family. God pierced my heart and spirit with this passage. If you have any encouragement from being united with …

A Prayer From College Still Prayed Today

When I came to faith in Christ back in college, my mind was rough, to say the least.  It was packed with rapid-fire emotions and thoughts of aggression, anxieties, lusts and everything else which vie for the mind of men. I was living in a fraternity house, trying to figure out life as a new follower of Christ, and loving …

Why I Keep Praying For A Husband

Later this year, I will enter the third decade of my life. I’m still as single as I was at 20. I question if it’s worth it to keep praying for a husband. I have been praying for a husband for the better part of the last 10 years, and I’ve wondered, on bad days, if I’ve been attempting to …

Do People See Jesus When They Look At Me?

I’ve buried far too many people in my life. Too many funerals, too many missed opportunities for one last goodbye, too many loved ones missing from the holiday gatherings. At a recent home-going of a dear friend, I tried to visualize what she experienced as she awoke in heaven. What a blissful thought! Waking up and finding yourself wrapped in …

20 Ways Single Parents Can Pray For Kids

Prayer for Kids

Lord, I prayed for this child, and You have granted me what I asked of You (1 Samuel 1:27).

A Prayer For Those Busy And Tired

  The past couple of weeks (okay, years), I’ve heard two words that I thought would never define me come out of my mouth consistently. I’ve let my guard down, allowing these life-state descriptors to define me. I hate it! They’ve become my scarlet letters. They isolate me. They make me someone I’m not. And what makes it worse is …

What To Do When God’s Promise Goes Unanswered

Don't Give Up

Have you ever had a promise from God? Something that He spoke to you that you’ve believed, but still haven’t seen? Maybe you are waiting on a healing to manifest, or a loved one to be saved, or a mate to materialize. Whatever it is, Jesus spoke to it in Luke 18:1-8. He begins by saying, “Men always ought to pray …

Ecce Homo means “behold the man.” It is the perfect flashcard to strengthen our inner man once we understand the point behind it. We read this phrase in John 19 as Pontius Pilate presents Jesus, wearing the crown of thorns and purple robe, to the crowd. “Behold the man!” Pilate shouts as he ignorantly shoves Jesus to the edge. The …
