Make Room for an Over-sized God (Don’t settle for an idol you can hide in your pocket)

Try to wrap your brain around this visual: Right now, God is sitting on the throne of heaven and His feet are propped up on the earth! (Is. 66:1) He has fullness that spans heaven and earth, yet He lives within Christian human bodies. There is a God who is literally love, literally peace, literally […]

Walking through Something Hard when the Person you’re Walking With is Not Keeping Up

The incidences are high of married couples whose marriages become strained or even end when they endure something tragic, such as the loss of a child. It really is not surprising that men and women grieve, process, and experience emotion very differently from one another, and hardship is certainly a time the differences are revealed. In […]

Gentleness from another World – Available to You

Dr. Kent Brantly suffered from the Ebola virus and came closer to death than many have ever come. Yet, he’s not all over the news shouting “YOLO!” (you only live once), he’s not writing a book describing his near-death experience in distasteful detail, and he’s not obnoxiously touting a newly made bucket list. Dr. Brantly […]

The Solution of His Presence

Where is there unrest in your life? Is it in a relationship? In a dilemma? Perhaps you’ve been trying to figure out what you can do in order to feel settled. The solution is to believe the promise that His Presence will go with you into your place of unrest, and He will give you […]

It’s NOT because you’re loveable

There’s nothing more important for you to keep separate than to keep separate your character, abilities, and successes from God’s love of you. God’s choice to love and accept you is completely unrelated to who you are and what you can do. God’s decision to love and accept you is completely related to who He is […]

The Trinity for You

Are you experiencing God in only one of His three beings? OR…Are you enjoying the full Trinity – God and Jesus and the Holy Spirit? GOD THE FATHER: He is the perfect Father that is never too busy, too angry, too distracted, too absent, too cold, or too important for you. He is the perfect […]

What is she talking about?

Ever wonder why God is called by so many Names and why it matters?  I Can Just Be Me is the title of a new release by vocalist, song-writer, and worship leader, Laura Story. In this song, Laura honors God in His rightful place as God, and then models how to call on the characteristic […]

“After His Own Heart”

God described David as being a man after his own heart (1 Sam. 13:14, Acts 13:22). The wording “after his own heart” might sound confusing. You may wonder if it means that God only designed David’s heart “after His own heart” – as if your heart wasn’t designed after God’s heart. Or you may wonder if […]

Three Worshipful Words, Part 3 – OMNIPOTENT

God’s Power: It’s often proclaimed, yet largely underutilized. God has an incomparably great power which He exerted in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand (Eph. 1:19-20).  The All-Powerful character trait of God, Omnipotence, is not meant to remain in the distance from you; He is eager to surround you and […]
