The Difference between Knowing About God and KNOWING God

This post started as a teaching send-off at our church's Wednesday morning Bible Study this week as we're going through the study I wrote this summer on 1 & 2 Samuel. Several ladies asked for a copy of this teaching, so I figured I would post it for you all. I would love to give… Continue reading The Difference between Knowing About God and KNOWING God

“But I don’t feel forgiven!” She said in exasperation over a cup of coffee. Ah, there it is. That’s the real issue, isn’t it? Or is it? This sweet Sister confessed her sin; she laid it all out before her Savior. She asked for God’s forgiveness, and He’s faithfully given it.

Our Best For Him–Even when You Don’t Feel Your Best

Being sick sucks! Wouldn’t you agree? It takes more than it gives and when it’s over, you have to play catch-up. For two weeks now a virus has had its way with my family. We’ve dropped one-by-one, like dominos falling in slow motion. And when a few of us start to get back up, BAM… Continue reading Our Best For Him–Even when You Don’t Feel Your Best

I don’t know about you, but after worshiping with other Believers, I feel encouraged! No matter what season I’m in, what challenges I’m facing, what I’m wrestling with, or how broken I am—I always feel refreshed, refocused, and more hopeful. Come.
