Though we see trouble, let’s keep trusting one day at a time.

As I process the news of my heart troubles, your prayers and encouragement are so incredibly dear to me and our family. I am slowly reading through your many comments. Thank you. As I thought about the passage I shared yesterday, where Daniel literally becomes sick over what God has shown him will happen toContinue reading “Though we see trouble, let’s keep trusting one day at a time.”

Do you need to remember God hears your prayers?

John is about to end his letter with a powerful punch of truths. John would have his readers remember the confidence they have in Christ, and the confidence they can have in prayer. When John wrote his letter, Christianity was spreading like wildfire, though it was far from easy to be a Christ-follower. False teachersContinue reading “Do you need to remember God hears your prayers?”

Is this world getting you DOWN??

I’m sure every generation of Christians has said it, but this world just seems hard, crazy, to be honest. I turn on the news, or get on social media, and I’m shocked by what I’m seeing.

When Your Life Disappoints You

I had been walking with Jesus in real relationship just a few short years when my husband, whom I loved so very much, committed suicide and left me caring for our chronically ill one-year-old and three-year-old sons. My life had turned out far from what I had planned or expected. As much as I hadContinue reading “When Your Life Disappoints You”

I see the effect of those who do this, don’t you?

The Apostle Paul said, “Meditate on these things, give yourself entirely to them, that your progress may be evident to all.” (I Tim 4:15) Slow down.Sit still.Clear your mind. Give yourself ENTIRELY to thinking about the things of God. Well, I’ll just check my phone first. I probably should throw in a load of laundry.Continue reading “I see the effect of those who do this, don’t you?”

Have you noticed this?

Right after Paul talks about the responsibility Christians have to speak truth from sound doctrine, he talks about his sin-filled past. (1 Tim 1:3-17) I think it was very intentional. Paul surely knew that as soon as we endeavor to share truth with others about the right way to live, the enemy will remind usContinue reading “Have you noticed this?”
