(Oh, I Got Some News!) This week’s Verse 1 John 5:14-15

What’s one of your very favorite things? Mine’s a toss-up between dark, strong coffee and chocolate (milk or dark)…and no, I’m not a fan of them being combined. I’ll eat them together, but I like my coffee black, very black. No sugar. No cream. Just black. Another is seeing God’s Word become Vibrantly Relevant in… Continue reading (Oh, I Got Some News!)

“A Season With Deep Purpose”

Don’t you love how God works sometimes? A few weeks ago I removed my mask. I let you (and myself) see what lies underneath. Not so pretty.

Waiting Well–Commit Thy Works Unto the Lord

I'm curious. As you strive to wait well, do you commit everything you do to God? Do you fully give Him your dreams and plans? Do you hand them over? Or are you like me and want to keep a hand, a finger on it; have a small bit of control? Interestingly, in the KJV… Continue reading Waiting Well–Commit Thy Works Unto the Lord

Waiting Well–Be Faithful Where You Are While You Wait

What are you waiting for? A job or an internship? A child? A spouse? Healing in a broken relationship? A prodigal to come home? An opportunity? A diagnosis? Waiting is not easy. It never has been. I doubt it ever will be. When we wait, we’re anticipating something we really, really want or need—or think… Continue reading Waiting Well–Be Faithful Where You Are While You Wait
