I never dreamed that three of my kids would get married in the same year.

Our sticky farm table, that was once full of coloring books and board games had been replaced with invitations and decoration details.

But more than helping to plan the weddings, I wanted to prepare my kids for their marriages.

I especially wanted to prepare them for day one of their marriage. And I quickly learned...

Holy Spirit, help me humble myself, seek Your wisdom and submit to Your ways — not what appears to be right to me. Open my eyes to see when I’m too dependent on my own strength. I want to hear You, see You and walk with You every day, Lord.

“Saul was told that David had gone to Keilah, and he said, ‘God has delivered him into my hands, for David has imprisoned himself by entering a town with gates and bars.’” 1 Samuel 23:7 (NIV)” Stuck somewhere between numb and exhaustion, I stared out the window. Lord, how did I end up here? Please [

I’ll Take It From Here

The news I’d just received crushed me.

A dear friend made a destructive decision that I couldn’t understand. It wasn’t in keeping with her character. It wasn’t something I ever dreamed that she could do.

I cried and tried to pray, but honestly, I felt like God was distant at that moment.
But then one simple verse cut through my thoughts with crystal clarity, “Be still, and know that I am...

Moment by moment, decision by decision, step by step — will we operate in God’s all-powerful truth or allow Satan to entangle us in his lies?

Dear Lord, thank You for making me aware of the enemy’s plans against me. I declare today that while the enemy may be vicious, he will not be victorious in my life. Not with You helping me walk in Truth and Light.

“For everything in the world — the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life — comes not from the Father but from the world.” 1 John 2:16 (NIV) Something I pray on a regular basis is that God will give me a keen awareness of the enemy’s plans […]

Satan’s Plan Against You

Conflict can be messy and uncomfortable, but what if it can actually be good?

Recently, I was hurt by something a friend had done. I realized I had a choice to make. I could get all caught up in the emotion and make this a much bigger deal than it needed to be, or I could try a better perspective.

As I read some passages from the Bible on staying calm, a question came to mind, “Lysa, what...

The only way through a breaking wave — is to break deep into the wave.

The only way through the overwhelming waves is to break deep into the roiling water and dive into the depths and stretch out both arms through the fathoms and let yourself be made into the shape of a cross.

That’s all there is: You can either be broken by fear or broken by pride — or you can break into the surrendered,...

“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!” 2 Corinthians 5:17 (NIV) When I feel like we’re drowning in all of life, our daughter Hope and I will go up to the lake and feel the waves pound, sense the serene fury of water. […]

The Way to Break Free of Stress

proverbs31.org
I really struggle with being a people pleaser.

We all want to be liked, and there’s nothing wrong with that. But if I’m seeking to please the Lord first and foremost, I will ask two questions before agreeing to do something for another person:

First, am I doing this with good motives?
And second, am I doing this for selfish reasons to gain acceptance?

You know, wherever we focus our...

God won’t waste our efforts, no matter how big or small those efforts may feel to us.

These steps can be uncomfortable, and sometimes our efforts feel insignificant in the grand scheme of things. But together, as we all take these small steps side-by-side, we are able to make such a great, eternal impact on the world around us. One that will bring God glory.

Lord, thank You for letting me be...

“… so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.” Isaiah 55:11 (NIV) One day, I was on my way to class when I saw one of my classmates crying while on […]

But This Isn’t What I Prayed For

No person’s rejection of me can ever exempt me from God’s love for me.

We live in an imperfect world, where rejection — even from fellow Christians — could be just around the corner.

But there is good news as we wait in expectation of God’s ultimate redemption! And that is Jesus.

Jesus brought with Him a love that stays the same. The most beautiful love story ever written is the one you...

God sends people into our lives for many reasons, and in many cases, it is in response to a need we have — whether it’s now, or yet to come. No relationship happens in the Kingdom of God by circumstance or without reason, whether it’s to provide friendship, help us through a season of difficulty, provide wisdom or inspire us to stand strong in our faith when we feel weak and unsure.

Lord,...

It’s been several years since I’ve experienced silence.

My left ear never stops screeching. I had a scuba diving accident several years ago, which left me with severe nerve damage in my left ear.

I hear the screeching all the time when I’m in conversation, when I’m trying to fall asleep. It’s just there.

Yes, this stinks. It really does. But, I refuse to get stuck in the depressing...

When I was a child my dad left and never came back.

I now know my dad had battles he was fighting that I couldn’t understand then. But at the time, I thought I must be the problem.

In my research on rejection, I discovered two core fears that feed a person’s sensitivity to rejection and you might be able to relate to these.

1) The fear of being abandoned
2) The fear of losing one’s...

Let’s stop offering God our excuses and our lists of why He can’t work in us and through us. Let’s believe with our whole heart that nothing is too hard for Him. And let’s lay down our measuring sticks of perfection and humbly bow our heads as we offer Him our willingness today.

Dear Lord, I lift up my willingness to You today in all areas of my life — at home, at work, in ministry, and in my...
