Dwelling in God’s Presence

Dwelling in God’s Presence

Have you ever just rested in the Lord’s presence? As Christians, we know that He is with us all of the time; He never leaves nor abandons us (Deuteronomy 31:8). So we can easily enter God’s presence to rest and refuel. I discovered an app called Dwell a few years ago, and it has easily […]

Be Still & Know

One of the most difficult things that I have been learning during this season of uncertainty due to COVID-19 is the truth in being still and trusting God. This is not something that has come naturally for me. I’ve tried taking control of my life, only to realize that I was never controlling it in […]

Renewing Your Mind Daily

Renewing your mind in Christ is a daily battle. Each morning when we get up, we must put on the armor of God just as we would put on our clothes. You wouldn’t walk out of your home naked, so why walk out into the world spiritually naked? There tend to be so many different […]

Faith vs. Feelings

Faith vs. Feelings

Faith and belief are two words that have been in my spirit over the past few days as I’ve been studying the book of John. This stirring in my spirit was prompted by John 14:11-14 which says: “Believe me that I am in the Father and the Father is in me. Otherwise, believe because of […]

In All Things—Peace.

In All Things—Peace.

Today while reading my Tony Evans Study Bible, I came upon Romans 8:37, which says, “No, in all these things, we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.” Many times, the word “conquerors” is what stands out in this verse. It’s a good word for sure. But the word “in” should also stand […]

Over the past few months, the world has been dealing with a health crisis: the Coronavirus. It has reached many countries, and people are in a panic about what can be done to stop or slow the spread of the virus. Anybody reading this post will already know the details of what’s going on with […]

Three crosses on a mountain

Glorious Day

Today, you did it. You conquered death. For me. For us. You arose with all power. Death couldn’t stop you. The enemy couldn’t hold you down. Your strength is unrivaled. And now we are free. No longer slaves. No longer captives of sin. No longer bound by the ropes of death. Today is a glorious […]

Grief & Trials

Grief & Trials

As a part of my chronological reading plan, I read the book of Job recently. Job has been one of my favorite books of the Bible, which some may consider strange. Some people think that this book is depressing and confusing, which I can understand how people may feel that way. But if you can […]

Anxiety? You Are Set Free!

Anxiety? You Are Set Free!

This week presented an unexpected challenge for me: anxiety. I hadn’t dealt with this intensity of anxiety since 2011, so it was surprising when it caught me off-guard. Back in 2011, when it happened, I was utterly lost in fear for five months. Constant worrying, panic, and fear were taking over my life. I found […]

Birds & the Reminder of God’s Providence

Birds & the Reminder of God’s Providence

Over the years, I have been reminded of God’s providence in many ways. Whether that be through spoken encouragement or random acts of kindness, I’ve seen God provide for me and show me his nearness. Lately, I have seen huge flocks of birds. Each time I see a flock of birds, I think about God’s […]
