"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11

“It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.” Galatians 5:1 Think of the different challenges or struggles you are facing in your life today. Is there something God is asking you to trust Him on that seems too difficult to face? Is He asking you to step […]

In Ecclesiastes it says that there is a time and a season for everything in life. “A time to uproot and a time to be planted… a time to weep and a time to laugh…” For some, that change might come in the prospects of what to do after college, in new seasons of employment or job loss, trial or victory. In all the seasons […]

For the last 5 years my faith has been tested with many health problems and trips to the hospital with no resolve. When I was 15 years old I was diagnosed with a large symptomatic pineal gland cyst in my brain. It caused constant headaches that would only worsen, full body pain, weakness, insomnia, fatigue, nausea, seizures/tremors, fevers and chills, vertigo, loss of consciousness, vision […]

Is there such a thing as too much good? Maybe it’s not in the word good but where the intentions behind it are coming from. We can have the best intentions but still miss the point. If our good is just being spurred on by our own desires instead of God’s plan then it will never be truly be satisfying or good enough. There are […]

Have you ever felt like you couldn’t forgive someone for what they’ve done? Like it was too much to consider doing because that would mean justice wouldn’t be served in your heart.

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:6-7) To have the unexplainable peace the Bible is talking about here means that there must be some kind of adversity or trials going […]

We’ve all heard it said that the sun stills shines even when it’s raining. What does that look like to you when it comes to trusting God through difficult times? We know in our heads He is there and remember all the wonderful things He has done for us in the past but sometimes it can be hard to remember that He still is the […]

If you turned off all the lights in your room, I’m guessing it would look pretty dim. The lamp would still be there ready for the power to come through it but until you flip the switch you would be in darkness. What good is a lamp if it is not plugged in to the electricity? Yes the lamp is still and will always be […]

I heard this true story the other day, a woman and a little boy were looking out across the vast ocean on top of a bluff. The little boy was holding her hand tightly as they watched and seemed to be obeying and staying close right beside her. The view was breath-taking and so the woman turned to the child and asked if he would […]

We’ve all been through hard times, those moments when you can’t seem to get out from under the rain cloud and you wonder where all the sunshine has gone. It is in those moments of trials and despair that it becomes even more important to look for joy. Sometimes that means dusting off your headlamp and searching for joy as someone would for buried treasure […]
