Will He Be Enough?

In peace I will lie down and sleep, for you alone, O Lord, will keep me safe. Psalm 4:8, NLT I wrote my very first blog post in August of 2013. The last paragraph ending with this desire: My transparency may not only be God’s way of helping me be honest with myself and others, [...]

Promises of God: He Hears You

And we are confident that he hears us whenever we ask for anything that pleases him. And since we know he hears us when we make our requests, we also know that he will give us what we ask for. 1 John 5:14-15 It’s one of the questions I have asked over and over for many [...]

Promises of God: Seek and You Will Find

“If you look for me wholeheartedly you will find me.” Jeremiah 29:13 Yesterday I dived into that often used verse in Jeremiah 29, the one promising a hope and a future. The words in verse 11 are true, but there is so much in the entire chapter that is missed when we simply focus on [...]

Not By My Strength, But His

Just Be Still, Already

We heard it as kids. We likely say it as adults now: “Be still. Sit down and just be still.” An instruction often given from parent to child. One that comes after too much moving and less just being.  You know we are commanded by God to do the same: “Be still?” Yet, even for us, [...]
