We’re Victorious

Scripture reading: Daniel 6 Just as the enemy will send people to distract, dismantle and disapprove our purpose, God will lead people to encourage, enhance and enjoy our purpose. For context, let’s look at Daniel’s story. Because Daniel found favor in the eyes of God and men (Proverbs 3:4), the enemy planted envy in those Daniel…

When We Need a Reset

Some days I feel like I need a total reset in my life. I feel like a reset is needed when I’m unproductive, or when I’ve been spending increasingly more time scrolling mindlessly through social media, or when it’s obvious I’m not present during conversations, or I’m more argumentative, or just overall not feeling like…

Words Have Power II

“Likewise, the tongue is a small part of the body, but it makes great boasts. Consider what a great forest is set on fire by a small spark. The tongue also is a fire, a world of evil among the parts of the body. It corrupts the whole body, sets the whole course of one’s life on…

The Greatest Act of Love

What an Easter Sunday! Even though it was celebrated unusually in the midst of social distancing, I hope it was still a beautiful day to celebrate Jesus’ resurrection — a fundamental, guiding premise of our belief and the greatest act of love ever committed.  “After the Sabbath, at dawn on the first day of the…

Dwelling on Failure

March Madness is one of my absolute favorite times of the year. I adore college basketball, and in March (and a lite bit of April) these college players give everything they have to be crowned champions. There’s incredible emotion, a lot of upsets and amazing surprises. But, as I’m watching these unbelievably exciting games, I’m…

Words Have Power

Scripture Reading: James 3 Words have power. Thinking back, I have said numerous things I wish I could have said differently or decided not to say at all. I can also point my finger on instances where I wish I could have said something, but stayed quiet instead.  If words didn’t have power, we wouldn’t…

Declaring Psalm 1

Speaking scriptures over your life is a powerful way to incorporate God’s word into your daily routine. Declarations are also a way to fight temptations, fears and insecurities while meditating on truth. Declare Psalm 1:1-3 with me today: I am blessed I will not walk in the counsel of the ungodly I will not sit…

The Contentment in Joy

“You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.” Psalm 16:11 ESV Psalm 16:11 is one of my favorite scriptures. The joy that David speaks about here is much different than happiness, which is based on circumstances. This joy is…

Jesus is for Everybody

Before we go any further on this blog. Before we write any more devotionals about anything, I just want to pause for a second and present the Gospel (the good news of God) to those who have never accepted Jesus, and to those who believe in God, but are not 100% sure they are going…

Emotional Roller Coasters

Monopoly Mega — a game of high priced rent, extravagant skyscrapers, elaborate property trades and my rollercoaster of emotions. A few days ago, it was a family game night, and the game of choice was the longest game possible. Throughout the entire night, I was up, and I was down. I would buy properties, earn…
