Feelings of Hopelessness

As I watched the events at the capital unfold, my stomach churned. The violence, the anger, the mob mentality became too much to watch. At one point, I wanted to curl up in a ball and cry. But, just as I felt a breakdown creep up, scriptures flooded my spirit. “Peace I leave with you;…

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.

Trusting is a Process

As a child, I was always afraid of the water. I failed my swimming class. I cried when I had to get my hair washed. I even despised water on my face. But, one day my family and I went on vacation and my dad put me on his back, and took me all the…

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…

Choose Bravery

Bravery is a necessary component of following Christ. Even though it may cause great internal stress, we must try as hard as we can not to give into fear. Bravery in the face of fear does not develop overnight, but comes from trusting our relationship with God. “Fear of man will prove to be a…
