doubt

When You’ve Given Up on God

When it feels like you’re shouldering more than your fair share of the pain, it’s natural to doubt God’s goodness or to question whether he exists at all.

I Hear Voices

Our Heavenly Father’s voice can silence the lies we tell ourselves, the lies our parents have told us, and the lies of the evil one.

DARE 2 HEAR: The Voice of Truth

There are a variety of voices vying for attention, center stage, and control in our lives. These voices will attempt to discourage you, to dissuade you, to confuse you, and even stop you from walking out God’s plan for your life. We discuss some of the voices you must tune out such as the voice of the past, reason, doubt, and pride, just to name a few.

What Makes You Secure?

Let’s let Him secure us and secure our situations. It’s His battle and His fight to be victorious over.

Ravens of Elijah

If you’re anything like me, then you’re inclined to believe that life can only make sense if on some scale, on some level, there is some measure of balance and symmetry.

Kingdom Perspective

It is sometimes hard to get perspective when I read through the Bible quickly.

When Someone Has Questions

In a system where faith is primarily about systems of rules and beliefs, our beliefs seem to come with an all-or-nothing caveat.

Faith Isn’t Pretending

The danger of our modern, evangelical movement is that we’ve created an answer that is too slick and simplistic for real life—we’ve left no room for dealing with hard questions.

When Anxiety Assails

I went through a horrible period of panic/anxiety attacks when I was a young mom. And the worst part of it all was that I thought God was punishing me.

Worth It All

The deepness that He is taking me through requires a trusting faith, a real faith without any room for doubt or another plan.

I’m Just a Kid

To parent my kids well, I’m going to have to be okay with the fact that I’m just a kid, too. I don’t know everything, I can’t see the future, and I can’t possibly control what kind of adults they’ll be.

Sitting With Sinners

If you think you can’t be used because of your sin or issues, just remember that Jesus chose to dine with sinners far more often than with those who thought they were righteous.

Hills and Valleys

Is it realistic for Christians to be joyful always? What happens when we despair, and how do we quickly turn around that mindset?

Air Conditioners and God’s Attributes

When my air conditioning stopped working, if I would have stopped for even two minutes and thought about God’s attributes – who God really is – would I have worried about the situation so much?

Struck by Fiery Arrows

Fiery Arrows happened. Again. And again. I felt as though I was pinned to the target, suffocating, and dying emotionally and spiritually.

What Happens When You Hear God’s Voice Wrong?

He straightened my paths, so if I took a wrong turn, He could redirect better than any Google Maps could do. By focusing on my ability to correctly hear His voice, I was placing the power in my hands, and that’s not where it resided.

Anchored or Tossed

Does doubt consume you, or are your prayers moving mountains? Is your faith tossed in the windy seas, or is it anchored in Jesus Christ?
