I’ve been challenged in recent weeks by our pastor’s words, “God cares about lost people.” I know that. Truly I do. The Word is full of parables about lost things and how finding them is of great value. But I have had to ask myself the hard question, “Do I care about lost people?” If lost people matter to God then they should matter to
I took a little break from writing last week. Usually my heart is full of things that I want to discuss or share, but I have just felt quiet. Fatigue has settled in as we are in another waiting period. God has been so faithful. My husband finally got a great job offer back in his field. We have waited and prayed so long for this to
Remember the wonders he has done, his miracles, and the judgments he pronounced, you his servants, the descendants of Abraham, his chosen ones, the children of Jacob. Psalm 105:5 (NIV) In the midst of some trying days last year, this verse came to the forefront. So much so that I pasted it into a document and put it on a board we have in our bedroom so

Is there a concern that maybe you shouldn’t annoy Him with your requests or continually beg for an answer to a situation when you feel He hasn’t answered. Unfortunately, I know I have.

I want to become one of those persons who can be described as “being of great faith.” Christ said we only need to have faith the size of a mustard seed to move a
January seems to be the month of new beginnings. We are all setting goals, thinking about how we want to make progress and dreaming of a better year. I love new beginnings, the fresh page of a new journal, and the dawn of a new day knowing that it’s a chance to start over and begin again. It’s refreshing. The Word says: “Forget the former things;
Do you have a tatoo or ever thought about getting one? I have. Secretly it’s one of those things that I would probably do even now if my husband came around to the idea. I’ve dreamt about flowers or celtic crosses and where the perfect spot would be for a little something to mark myself. But Ephesians 1:13b tells us that we are already marked. “Having
