My student pastor sent a bible-plan link to my youth group’s chat and he challenged us to read it within three days. Now, I’m doing the same–challenging you to read this plan within three days. It will only take you five minutes each day for three days. Click here to start. And just for fun… comment “Joined” if you are joining…

The Everyday War As Followers of Jesus

Before my blog-posting break started, I purposed to do so much—make a consistent posting plan, create priorities, and pray. I wanted to seek Jesus’ guidance, hand him the pen, and be surrendered to His will for this blog and my writing in the coming year. I dove right into a month-off posting with the assumption that it…

Seek And Find

Note: There is a small announcement at the end. Make sure not to miss it! “You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart.” – Jerimiah 29:13 {ESV} Seeking Jesus is like playing the ultimate hide-and-seek game. He is often perceived as hidden. Veiled. Unseen. We can’t see Him physically, but…

His Compassion

Compassion. When I think about compassion, I get a vivid picture of Matthew 19:14. The disciples were reluctant to have the children come near Jesus, but Jesus insisted. He reaches his arm out, tenderly drawing the children to him. They look up at his face in awe and beam in joy while seated on his lap. He gently…

When Obedience Is Uncomfortable

When God pushes us out of our “comfort zones,” our initial response would be to question Him. “Go over there? Right now? What if she thinks I’m odd to walk up to her? Do you really want me to go over there?” The possible “what if’s” play a rhythm in our mind. Our heart beats at…

With school work, activities, a road trip to prepare for and numerous other things, it has been hard for me to slow down, be still and truly prepare my heart for Resurrection Sunday. Perhaps you feel the same way? Has the hustle and…
