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 Rollercoasters

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…

Perspective is Everything

During the last few days, I’ve been thinking a lot about perspective. The way we perceive any situation, whether with pessimism, optimism or somewhere in between, affects our mood and our ability to learn from these situations. In this life, it’s not a matter of if we’ll experience seasons of loss and heartache and failure,…

Waiting in Faith

“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” (Hebrews 11:1 KJV) Sometimes, the most difficult part about faith is the wait. It’s the patient, occasionally longer than anticipated, wait for the prayers we’ve uttered and the promises we’ve read to come into reality, that can throw a wrench…

Officer B sprinted into action by pushing Officer A away from the…

Courage Over Comfort

Recently, I watched a Netflix talk by Brené Brown on the necessity of vulnerability. Among the many great lessons she presented to listeners, one piece of wisdom stood out among the rest. Each day she settled to choose courage over comfort, and she encouraged viewers to do the same. “‘Be strong and courageous. Do not…

Work With Your All

Recently, I had to make a return at a local grocery store. Before I could proceed to the customer service desk, one of the workers greeted me, and asked if he could see my return. He diligently rummaged through the items marking each tag to signify a return, and then marking those same items on…

God is Our Refuge

Think of a place you’re most comfortable in – past or present. Maybe it’s a relative’s home, a best friend’s bedroom, a favorite teacher’s classroom, a sunny beach. For me, reminiscing about my childhood home makes me all warm and fuzzy inside. The harmony created within these walls was a solid rock throughout my ever-changing…

Living for Christ

There are over 7.5 billion people in the world. There is one you. There is a call on your life that only you can answer. Seasonless areas are waiting for your matchless flavor (Matthew 5:13). Gloomy places are waiting for your vibrant light (Matthew 5:14-15). Musty spaces are waiting for your sweet fragrance (2 Corinthians…
