God Pursues Our Hearts

God chases after our hearts. “‘What do you think? If a man owns a hundred sheep, and one of them wanders away, will he not leave the ninety-nine on the hills and go to look for the one that wandered off? And if he finds it, truly I tell you, he is happier about that…

Expect Miracles

“Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us …” (Ephesians 3:20 NIV) God truly does what no one can think of or imagine. All throughout every book in the Bible, and throughout our own lives, God shows…

Be Fearless

“On another Sabbath he went into the synagogue and was teaching, and a man was there whose right hand was shriveled. The Pharisees and the teachers of the law were looking for a reason to accuse Jesus, so they watched him closely to see if he would heal on the Sabbath. But Jesus knew what…

Don’t Sit on Your Gift

Two of my favorite things to talk about is prayer and purpose. Even though I am no expert in either subject, I believe these two things, especially when put together, allow us to experience life like never before.

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…
