Worry never changes things. But prayer does.

Let’s remember this truth today. We can take the worries that would normally leave us consumed with fear and instead use them as triggers to remind us to leave everything at the Lord’s feet in prayer.

God is the same yesterday, today and forever, my friend. God continues to work in unseen ways, in your life and mine. Although we will experience times we cannot see or understand what God is doing, we can trust our loving, sovereign God is orchestrating things for our good and His glory.

Father, Even when I cannot understand what is happening in my life, You are working to bring about Your...

I recently stood at my kitchen sink and cried.

I was exhausted and knew I needed to slow down, but I had so much to do. I knew the exact person I needed to look to for advice: Jesus!

Jesus really knew what pressure was. Crowds demanded sermons. The disciples wanted leadership, and the religious leaders wanted answers. There was an entire world to save with such limited time.

Yet, Jesus...

When our faithful Father looks at our lives, He does not see the bedlam that is, but the beauty that will be. And like a little artist I know, our patient Maker will not stop mid-design or call it quits in the chaos. He will finish the good work He’s started. God won’t give up until it’s glorious.

So next time it looks like the Lord’s best plans are falling short, let’s fix our eyes on our...

The more we know God, the more we want to say yes to Him. The more we say yes to Him, the more we realize there are divine opportunities to participate in His activity all around us.

Today let’s be others-focused. Let’s ask God for opportunities to honor Him by looking to the interest of others. Let other people in line ahead of us. Let the conversations be about the other person. Make our...

I woke up worried today.

Instead of starting my day with panic, I turned to Proverbs 3:5-6, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.”

These verses are packed with wisdom we can use against worry.

1) Trust is the opposite of worry. When we start to feel worried, we can see it as a...

Often, we make these grand plans and then as the days and weeks go by, we realize we must sit and be patient as we watch His plans unfold.

I had plans to start a family, but God didn’t seem to have the message. So, I prayed. And waited.

I was a mix of disbelief, doubt and hope. One year went by. Then two. A miscarriage. More drugs, injections and trips to the doctor than I could count. I was...

In 16 years of marriage, Chad and I have discovered that unexpected surprises create stress.

Like everybody else, Chad and I have busy, full lives. We thought our hectic schedules created surprises and surprises created stress. But the things we were involved in weren’t bad things, and in many cases, couldn’t be avoided.

The problem wasn’t our schedules; it was our lack of communication. So...

Have you ever believed the problems of the world were too big for you to make a difference?

I’ve definitely felt that way. So instead of doing something, even something small, I did nothing. I thought big, world-sized problems required big, powerful people.

But then a friend told me about spending time with rescued victims of abuse. And something shifted. I couldn’t just say, “Wow, how...

Jesus is the model for love. His love is sacrificial. Consistent. Unconditional. Without strings attached. We accurately model for others the love of Christ toward us when we seek to love them in the same way. The people in our life can catch a glimpse of the gospel when they see us seeking to mirror God’s love.

Honoring others means thinking of their wishes and welfare at those times you...

We can find so much joy in the simple things if we have the eyes to look for it.
We might miss God's hand in the small details of our every day life if we overlook them.
God is constantly showing us His love throughout our day... but it's not always in the ways we might think.
We have to lean in. Look closely. And pause in the midst of a rushed day. The joy we're looking for may show up in...

God intentionally chooses the lowly and seemingly weak to exemplify and fulfill His glorious purposes.

What hope for us when we feel weak and unusable. What peace for us when we feel overlooked and undervalued by this world.

God doesn’t look at us the way the world looks at us. He doesn’t even look at us the way we look at ourselves.

Let’s keep our hearts pure and humble, friends. Let’s...
