You Are Above All

God invites us to authentically express what we’re feeling when we ponder life’s realities. Many of these expressions are recorded for us in the Psalms—the songbook of the Bible. Psalm 8 is a Psalm of praise. In it, David encourages us to instinctively look up and...

The Supporting Cast of Easter

See Easter through the eyes of the people you may not think about that were involved with the story. What can we learn from this supporting role perspective?

Your Old and New Natures

Your Old and New Natures

Have you ever felt unprepared? You’ve probably had a time in your life when you were not prepared at all for what was about to happen. As our flesh constantly fights to lead us further away from God, it’s easy for us to feel unprepared for life. But God prepares us by...

The Holy Spirit in Your Life

The Holy Spirit in Your Life

In the Bible, we read Jesus promising to send the Holy Spirit to his disciples after He is gone. As believers in Jesus, the Holy Spirit is also with us, living inside of us, just as Jesus promised. The question is, why did Jesus send the Holy Spirit to be with us?...

Confessing Your Sins

Confessing Your Sins

God’s redemptive plan for humanity involves the death of Jesus for the sins of everyone. But we enjoy God’s forgiveness only when we believe what Jesus did for us. Have you noticed, even Christians still sin? Confessing or admitting our daily sin keeps our...

Day 21: Handel’s Messiah

The home that I grew up in had a large living room in the middle of the house, with high ceilings and a fireplace. This is where we set up our tree every Christmas. With the mantel decorated, and the tree twinkling happily with lights and years of collected ornaments and memories, it was the room that felt the most like Christmas.

Day 19: Breath of Heaven

Mary’s faith was deep, even as a teenager. God did not choose Mary by accident. He selected the perfect girl from Nazareth to carry His Son in her womb. And His choice was a girl whose initial reaction to the angel Gabriel was shock. But His choice was a girl who was obedient despite this.

“For nothing will be impossible with God. … Let it be to me according to Your word,” said Mary after Gabriel delivered the news. This faith would carry Mary through the highs and lows of her pregnancy.

Day 18: Do You Hear What I Hear

I was recently joking with a friend that if I were to write a real-life version of “Do You Hear What I Hear?” it would focus around the sounds of children griping over logging into their virtual classes, the clang of dishes piling up in the sink, the ping as my husband texts asking if I’ve remembered to schedule a grocery pick up this week, and the buzzer on the dryer reminding me that, yet again, there is a mountain of laundry ready for me to fold.

Showing Up Small

2020 has been a year for the books. We won’t forget it. We’ve all experienced trauma this year. We’ve all experienced loss. I’ve spent many days asking God to fix it; pleading with God to fix it; screaming at God to fix it.

I want Him to show up big because I know He can. Beneath my noise, God whispers.

Celebrate Recovery December 17

There's a story in Daniel, chapter 3, about three young boys, Sadrach, Meshach, and Abednigo, who are thrown into a fiery furnace for daring to honor God by not bowing to a golden image.  But there was another in that fire with them.  Many believe it was God Himself,...
