Lord, Make Me More Bold

0 Comment

Do you want to live and speak more boldly for Jesus Christ? I do. How badly do we want it? Do we want it enough to ask, seek, and knock until God answers us and to take risks that press on our timidity? Or, if we’re honest, would we rather just keep wishing we were bolder — […]

What God Allows


So to keep me from becoming conceited because of the surpassing greatness of the revelations, a thorn was given me in the flesh, a messenger of Satan to harass me, to keep me from becoming conceited (2 Corinthians 12:7, ESV). God allows bad things to happen to good people. The phrase “good people” is a bit of […]

Humble Yourself

0 Comment

Now before the Feast of the Passover, when Jesus knew that his hour had come to depart out of this world to the Father, having loved his own who were in the world, he loved them to the end. During supper, when the devil had already put it into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon’s […]

The Narrow Way and the Broad Way

0 Comment

“Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it. For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it.” – Matthew 7:13-14 In the text before […]

Going Out in Christ's Authority

0 Comment

“And Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying, ‘All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and […]

How to Live with the End in Mind

0 Comment

Remind them of these things, and charge them before God not to quarrel about words, which does no good, but only ruins the hearers. Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth (2 Timothy 2:14–15, ESV). Woven into everything the […]

Family Pain

0 Comment

​ Unless the LORD builds the house, those who build it labor in vain (Psalm 127:1a, ESV). There’s no pain like family pain. “Unless the LORD builds the house,” the house will be built in vain and filled with pain. Family life is delightful and dynamic if prioritized, but difficult and draining if neglected. If life is not working at home, […]

The Place for Pursuing Wisdom

0 Comment

The testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple (Psalm 19:7b, ESV). God speaks to us through all He has created and all He has written. Psalm 19:7 is a prompt to consider the faithfulness of Scripture in moving us from ignorance to wisdom. The word testimony depicts God as witnessing to Himself. While we can learn from […]

Sufficient for You

0 Comment

But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me (2 Corinthians 12:9, ESV). When we study Scripture, we don’t want to get buried in the details […]

Worshiping with a Broken Heart


I looked across the table at my boyfriend and replayed his words in my mind. “I just don’t enjoy spending time with you.” I never knew a heart could break so suddenly, so rudely — in only one sentence. I was desperately grasping for anything to help soften the sharpness of those eight words. I […]
