A Simple & Beautiful Prayer

This is one of the most simple and beautiful prayers in all of God’s Word. It’s found in the very last chapter of the book of Hebrews (13:20-21).   Now may the God of peace, who through the blood of the eternal covenant brought back from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep, equip you with […]

Have you ever felt the desperate need to be replenished?

The world has a million ways to temporarily satisfy a weary soul. But, people can’t fill your void, neither can enough alone-time, not food, coffee, alcohol, shopping nor Netflix…you get my point. When we need true replenishment, there’s really one place that is trustworthy to meet the desperate need of a human heart, and that’s […]

Faith No Matter What

Joni Eareckson Tada was a very athletic teenager, and at 17 years old she dove into some water which caused a neck injury (C4 to be specific) that left her paralyzed from the neck down. She is now 75 years old, and still confined to a wheelchair. She sings, she paints with a brush in […]

Give Thanks in All Things

Few things are worth our time and effort more than creating a habit of gratitude.  Gratitude may come easier for some people than others, but I do whole-heartedly believe that if you choose it often enough, it starts to change you from the inside.  Life can be hard; it can be inconvenient and downright grueling at times, but […]

Remember – Do Not Forget…

Bless the Lord, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless his holy name!  2 Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits, 3 who forgives all your iniquity, who heals all your diseases, 4 who redeems your life from the pit, who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy, 5 who satisfies you with good so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s. 6 The Lord works righteousness and […]

We Have Need of Endurance

Sometimes life can feel really heavy.  If you look around you, are you sensing that many people are struggling and have a lot weighing on them?  The people living in the 1st century, to whom the Letter to the Hebrews is written, had a lot to endure as well.  I’ve had the thought in my mind a lot lately […]

Counting It All Joy, No Matter What Happens

James 1:2-4 says: 2 Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, 3 for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. 4 And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing. Hardship is rarely the way we’d ever choose for things to go.  If you’re anything like me, the last […]
