Psalm 100, Part 5: COME!

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. 'Taste and see that the Lord is good.

The Empty Chair. Finding Joy this Holiday Season

For some, holidays are a struggle because unforgiveness in the family still resides or the personality conflicts haven't been resolved. But for others, holidays are a reminder of loss. They magnify what or who is no… Continue reading The Empty Chair. Finding Joy this Holiday Season

Ask For God’s Best and Give Him Your Best

  Sometimes my kids are smarter than I am. I don’t mean in the academic sense—although, that’s true in the math department.

Day 29 of 31 Days of Seeing Jesus in Your Daily Life: The Resident

“Good-bye! we’ll see you shortly!” I chirp before hanging up the phone. Then as I face my family, panic overtakes me… “Quick! We have guests coming!” Those words are like a Starter’s pistol at the beginning of a race.

Today I joined a gym. Before you ask “How long is this going to last?” Know I’ve already asked myself that at least a dozen times.
