God gives us permission to present our honest questions before Him. He knows we will have anxious thoughts and troubling circumstances. It is what we do in these lamenting times that matter.

Unfortunately, I am guilty of often gossiping about God instead of taking my honest laments before Him in prayer. As a child of God, we can take our questions directly to God, even while our hearts are...

“How long will my enemy triumph over me?“ Psalm 13:2b (NIV) When I reached my 30s, I remember praying “How long, Lord?” as I filled out yet another change of address form. During several years of job and life transitions, I’d filled out my share of these. I needed to have a list of my […]

How Long, O Lord?

Proverbs 31 is a chapter that praises a woman of noble character. Up before dawn, this valiant warrior, entrepreneur and community leader is a spiritual superwoman for sure.

How is a modern gal to take encouragement from this ancient proverb? I think it’s significant that this is the final chapter of a book...

I don’t have a personal story of how God took our marriage and miraculously transformed it into a storybook romance filled with white-knight rescues, relentless romance and rides into the sunset leaving all danger and darkness behind. Although our marriage has been all that at one time or another, it’s no fairy tale.

Our marriage is like a daily journal, one page after another, one day after...

“Yet I hold this against you: You have forsaken the love you had at first. Consider how far you have fallen! Repent and do the things you did at first.” Revelation 2:4-5a (NIV) What do you do when you’ve lost that lovin’ feelin’ in your marriage? Maybe you truly adored your husband in the beginning,

Reigniting Passion in Your Marriage

Disillusionment. Have you ever felt it?

You carry a significant request to God and beg Him to do something, and He does. But it wasn’t what you asked Him to do.

Or maybe God seems silent. And you don’t know what to do next. Something deep within feels disappointed, afraid and a little off.

What do you do with that?

I understand. I’ve felt that hurt and confusion. I’ve wondered if my...

I will forever be amazed at the power of words.

String just the right words together and you form a thread of hope.

Tie enough of those threads of hope to human hearts and a collective stirring happens.

Place that stirring in the midst of people bold enough to dream, and you have a movement.

Movements change the world.

I wonder what it was like the day Dr. Martin Luther King picked up his...

As believers, we bear the special mandate of loving others because the love of God covered our sin. When we love our brothers and sisters, we are watering, trimming and picking up what we all hold dear — our love for God, His love for us and our remembrance of Jesus Christ and His sacrifice. This is what makes it possible for us to, indeed, all be connected in Him.

And love matters. Love for...

“Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God.” 1 John 4:7 (ESV) We walked behind the house and into the backyard. My mother wanted to show me something. There was a small tree. Not quite a sapling, but still young. It […]

The next time God calls us out of our comfort zone, let’s pray these promises from our Father in heaven:

Father, thank You that when You call us to a God-sized task, You don’t abandon us. You equip us. You give us great promises to trust in and cling to. You never abandon us or leave us alone. Help me to be strong and courageous where you have called me today or in the future.

Facing issues that never seem to stop is tough.

It’s especially tough when the answers aren’t easy or clean-cut and God seems silent.
When I really want to hear from God, but He seems silent, I sometimes find I want to disengage from my normal spiritual activities. Skip church. Put my Bible on the shelf. And let more and more time lapse between prayers.

But pulling away only makes things...

Be still. Be patient. Be quiet. Be trustful and know. That is where He calls me to go: Pause and find Him. Peace.

Lord, being still, when there is so much to do, seems so wrong. Yet, Your ways are not my ways. Help me to breathe deep, be still and pause to take You in. I want to know that You are God.

“He says, ‘Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.’” Psalm 46:10 (NIV) One after another, choices needing decisions just keep coming. Home decisions hang in the balance. When can I get this fixed? Who will follow through with the repairs

Be Still

Broken-down relationships can really break us down.

Whether it’s a best friend or a family member, I know the heart-ripping hopelessness of a relationship unraveling.

But might I give you a piece of encouragement? Decide today that you are worthy.
Because you are worthy. You may not feel like it. But a quick glimpse at Scripture assures me, you are.

You are fearfully and wonderfully made...

“Don’t just pretend to love others. Really love them. Hate what is wrong. Hold tightly to what is good. Love each other with genuine affection, and take delight in honoring each other.” - Romans 12:9-10

Lord, help me see the assignments right in front of me. I desperately want to unrush my schedule so I can love those You have entrusted to me.

Recapturing Us in the Midst of Our Rush

Messes don’t usually make me feel thankful.

I remember a day when my children were younger and I counted more than 14 pairs of shoes spread carelessly around the room I was in. I was not a happy mama!

But as I mentally chided my children for not being grateful enough to put their shoes away, I felt God gently reprimand me. Was I modeling thankfulness?

Those shoes were evidence of life. A...

God sets twists and turns in all our lives that provide opportunities for us to grow, mature, be humbled, learn, develop, surrender, gain confidence and more. I call these twists and turns...
