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…

The Necessity of Change

Change can be scary. There is fear of the unknown, fear of the known coming to an end, fear of failure and fear of being uncomfortable. These fears can scare us into staying at a job we know we’ve outgrown, avoid pursuing a business venture, and setting our goals too low. But, change propels us…

A Blank Canvas

“Therefore don’t worry about tomorrow, because tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” (Matthew 6:34 HCSB) Recently, I’ve found myself striving more often to be intentional about living for today as if tomorrow doesn’t exist. This doesn’t mean that I don’t make plans and set goals for the future,…

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…

True Identity

A lot of things in this world can describe the lives we live, but these things don’t truly define us. Think of all the degrees we sometimes pursue to show off the letters behind or in front of our name, or the accolades and honors we receive from people around us or from our careers.…

God Sees You

Often times we may think that God only sees the big, tangible things we do, i.e. sharing the Gospel, hosting a Bible study, donating money, etc. God cares about those things, but He also sees the intangible things — our patience, our diligence and our self-control. He knows our mental stability, our sorrows, and our…

Together Forever

As we navigate this world, it is important that we find community. Community looks different for everyone, but no matter what groups we join and what friends and family we intentionally connect with, they’re vital to our existence. “Then the Lord God said, ‘It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a…

Love Is All We Need

Have you ever stopped and wondered why there are so many songs written about love? Love is something we yearn for as human beings. When we experience it, it gives us a sense of belonging. God wants us to experience unconditional love, and He desires for us to share this kind of love with everyone…
