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…

Discerning God’s Voice

Very early on in my nephew’s life, my sister could understand what he was trying to communicate. No matter what mode of communication he used — loud or soft cries, baby sign language or incoherent speech, she would know what he wanted. He’s three now, and if he says something too fast or if he…

Seasons of Life

Do you ever stop and ponder on the season of life you’re currently in and its meaning?

For God’s Glory

One of my favorite songs is “For Your Glory” by Tasha Cobbs Leonard. For me, this song is a reminder that wherever God is, is where I desperately want to be – where I desperately need to be. Being in God’s presence, being in His will, going where He calls us to go, sounds scary…

Love is a Verb II

“If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have…

Serving God Even With Fear

Sometimes serving God can be quite difficult. No matter how much we say we love God, or how much we actually love God, putting this love into action can be an arduous task. But, the sacrifices, the fears, the uncomfortable moments that often weave themselves into the life of a believer will always prove that…
