Freedom From the Porch of Weakness

I hate that I am part of this disgusting scene. Most sickening is the realization I did not have to be here. A prisoner to my long-term weakness.

What If God’s Word Isn’t About Us?

We must recognize that God’s promise is that He will never leave us despite the storms that come our way. The promise is NEVER that the storms won’t come.

Pat the Cat

The more we run away and go hungry and do whatever we have to do in order to survive in the wild, the more we should long to cry out to our Master,

Intentional

We are the translators to the world around us of what God is doing and saying. Plan to be a beacon. Ask for someone to be put there for you to love on. Face your moments with intentionality in mind

The Immateriality of God

God is self-existent; therefore, He was not made, He was not created. The divine essence is entirely a spirit; and a spirit cannot be flesh, bone, and blood.

The Damage Done

The hope we have doesn’t mean we always break free of the coping mechanisms—the hope is that one day, we won’t need them. 

They Bug Me

My sins may look different from theirs, but I still have hurt others with my sin just as they have. However, the Lord has redeemed both of us, and neither of us will get what we deserve.

What’s the Rub

Unity is created in an atmosphere of being understood, at least in trying to understand someone else’s point of view.  It’s an atmosphere of mutual respect and love.

God’s Goodness

So whether you’re at the lowest valley in your life, like David or you’re at the highest peak remember He is with you. He hears your cries and your praises.

Pain Reminds Us What’s Important

All that other little stuff that we often let bother us… isn’t worth it. Enjoy life as much as you can and thank the Lord every single day.

Boldness

What does it mean to be bold in our faith? The answer, according to the Bible, might surprise you…

My Strange Relationship

Almost daily, I realize how much I don’t deserve to be in this relationship. Suddenly, I’ll be on my knees in complete wonder of who He is.

One Night Off

It’s cool to me that the God who needs no rest offers us rest, especially in the times that we need it most. It doesn’t take much to make a difference.

Like the Moon

Through the fire you call my name
Giving me the strength to rise once again
And find my way through the flame.

Own Your Faith

The temptation is to take the easy path, but it leads to, well…destruction. Take the narrow path because only you fit on it. No one else can lead you.

Hurt People

Wisdom and maturity are recognizing that those that hurt us, whether intended or not, need love, too. They need our prayers, our patience.
