You Belong with Him

What is our deepest desire? For many of us, what is we want the most? Think about it. Really think about it. When we go into a new space. Whether a new job, a new school, a new group, a new place. When we are among new people, or people we have known for a [...]

Love and Marriage…

Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds us all together in perfect harmony. Colossians 3:14 Love and marriage, love and marriage...that's the theme song to one of my husband's sitcom guilty pleasures, and it doesn't have much to do with this post, except that today's verse from Colossians 3:14 is a reminder from Paul [...]

Promise of God: Never Forgotten

Can a mother forget her nursing child? Can she feel no love for the child she has borne?But even if that were possible, I would not forget you! Isaiah 49:15, NLT I often wonder what makes a person “unforgettable.” My husband and I took a short walk down memory lane the other night. He was [...]

Promises of God: He Keeps Them

For the Lord your God is a merciful God; he will not abandon you or destroy you or forget the solemn covenant he made with your ancestors. Deuteronomy 4:31 He stood there, just having got off the school bus. Refusing to come inside the house. He did this frequently, so today was not any different [...]

Promises of God: A New Heart

And I will give you a new heart, and I will put a new spirit in you. I will take out your stony, stubborn heart and give you a tender, responsive heart. And I will put my Spirit in you so that you will follow my decrees and be careful to obey my regulations. Ezekiel [...]

His Love Letter

This is how we’ve come to understand and experience love: Christ sacrificed his life for us. This is why we ought to live sacrificially for our fellow believers, and not just be out for ourselves. If you see some brother or sister in need and have the means to do something about it but turn [...]

We Give Because He Gave All

If someone has enough money to live well and sees a brother or sister in need but shows no compassion—how can God’s love be in that person? 1 John 3:17 I have the opportunity each month to mentor a few teen girls. While it is part of my role as a mental health provider to also [...]

Ain’t No Mountain

For the mountains may move and the hills disappear, but even then my faithful love for you will remain. My covenant of blessing will never be broken, says the Lord, who has mercy on you. Isaiah 54:10 I love music. It has been the permeating sound of my life for many years. Even as a [...]

Proving You Are His

"Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are my disciples." John 13:35 I want you to imagine the following scenario: You are in line at a local store. Let's say you are in the return line, because we know those lines can be long. Nerve-wracking at times. You have a [...]

Hospitality: It’s More than Just Good Food

Keep on loving each other as brothers and sisters. Don't forget to show hospitality to strangers, for some who have done this have entertained angels without realizing it. Hebrews 13:1-2 When you think of hospitality, of what do you think? We often think of the "hospitality industry." Restaurants, hotels, caterers, travel agents, businesses that offer [...]
