When Life Is a Little Too Busy

Devotionals, Off The Blog

I saw the phone light up out of the corner of my eye. I picked it up and scanned the text: “Are you free to hang out today?” I cringed. “No”, I thought, “I don’t have time to hang out today or any day this week.” I was in the midst of a very busy season and […]

The Key to Productivity in God’s Economy

Off The Blog

Seven months into parenthood, I knew something had to change. I had expected the diaper changes, the snotty noses, even the sleepless nights; but I had not anticipated the frustration, the fear, or the perpetual feeling of falling behind. I woke up one morning to my daughter babbling in her crib. As I laid there […]

The World Needs Your Words

Off The Blog

And so it was with me, brothers and sisters. When I came to you, I did not come with eloquence or human wisdom as I proclaimed to you the testimony about God. For I resolved to know nothing while I was with you except Jesus Christ and him crucified. I came to you in weakness […]

He Cares For Your Every Need


 “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your […]

We remember our lives before Christ before our souls felt their worth. Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel has come to thee, O Israel! This […]

When I Am Overwhelmed


When my spirit faints within me,     you know my way! In the path where I walk     they have hidden a trap for me. Psalm 142:3 (ESV) The baby isn’t napping, I’m behind in my writing, the house is a wreck and I have to submit my plans for Women’s Bible Studies next Spring by Friday. Overwhelmed? Yes. […]

How Would You Answer?


And Jesus said to him, “What do you want me to do for you?”  And the blind man said to him, “Rabbi, let me recover my sight.” Mark 10:51 I recently listened to Emily P. Freeman’s podcast The Next Right Thing and at the end of one of her episodes, she describes Jesus as a great question-asker, […]

Is It Enough?


“But scripture tells us that we were created to glorify God, indicating that we are important to God Himself. This is the final definition of genuine importance or significance to our lives: If we are truly important to God for all eternity, then what greater measure of importance or significant could we want?” – Wayne […]
