“The name of the LORD is a strong tower; the righteous man runs into it and is safe.” – Psalm 18:10 Where do you turn when you’re in need? What do you do when you’re afraid? Who do you talk to when you have a problem? These were questions my friend, Holly, asked a group…

Digging Deeper

June 14, 2019 | Comments Off on Digging Deeper

Summer is a perfect time to try something new or find relaxing rhythms that might last until next spring.  Whether you read more, cook more, get outside more with your kids (who are home all the time, eat everything, and are always asking “are we there yet?”), the longer days of summer are full of…

You Will Walk Free

June 7, 2019 | Comments Off on You Will Walk Free

I’m a visual person. But not in the way you’re thinking. Perhaps there is a term for it that I’m unaware of—but my form of visual learning comes through words that create pictures. It is no shock to me as I tend to view and see things in this way. Perhaps it is a way…

R.E.S.T.

May 31, 2019 | Comments Off on R.E.S.T.

Solitude. Quiet. Sleep. Freedom from busyness. An unhurried and peaceful way of living. All of these words paint a picture of rest to me. Lazy afternoons. Unhurried mornings. Hours and hours to read, write, or think. But those kinds of days—they make movies, not my calendar. On the precipice of 2019, God entrusted with me…

“Were Not Our Hearts Burning?”

May 24, 2019 | Comments Off on “Were Not Our Hearts Burning?”

  Were not our hearts burning within us? (Luke 24:32) Often it takes going through the “hearts burning” walks of life to see Christ’s Glory. Recently, I read Luke 24:13-33 during my quiet time. Then, I read it for the next three days because it spoke to me so profoundly. The story takes place the…

Immediate Obedience

May 17, 2019 | Comments Off on Immediate Obedience

Do you ever catch yourself scolding your kids (or thinking about your spouse) and saying something to the effect of “I shouldn’t have to ask 3 times!” or “wouldn’t that have been easier if you would have just done what I asked in the first place?” or what about this one… “(insert name of your…

It Just So Happened … Hope

May 10, 2019 | Comments Off on It Just So Happened … Hope

    Have you ever wondered about the power of hope? It gives one a reason to keep going, a reason to keep on believing, a reason to press forward. I recently finished reading the book of Ruth and I started to wonder about the thread of hope woven throughout the four chapters. It is…

God’s Oil

May 3, 2019 | Comments Off on God’s Oil

Have you ever wondered why we have to change the oil in our cars? We all do it. We drive to Jiffy Lube, Wal-mart, or in my case, Warren’s Single Moms Oil Change last Saturday during City Serve. We have this maintenance done regularly. But do you know why it’s important? In short, as a…

That’s Not My Name: Overcoming the Voice of Shame and Reclaiming Identity

April 28, 2019 | Comments Off on That’s Not My Name: Overcoming the Voice of Shame and Reclaiming Identity

There is only one mirror in my bedroom, and it is covered from top to bottom in hand-written notes. “I am the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus.” “I am known completely and loved perfectly.” “I am forgiven and clean.” “I am not a burden.” “I am never alone.” “I am blessed, called, healed, and…

Have You Talked to God About It?

April 19, 2019 | Comments Off on Have You Talked to God About It?

As a ministry director, I often report upcoming ideas with my supervisor. Whenever I say ‘I don’t know what to do’, he always responds with “Did you pray about it?” I’ll take a moment and survey my daily prayers to find that I cried out in desperation for how to fix the treadmill that has…
