We all have a unique path to live and we are the only ones who can live it. We need the Holy Spirit to speak to each of our hearts. We need to learn how to hear God’s voice so we can discern His will for us. We also need to make choices to step out into faith even when it’s hard or the results aren’t pleasant.Knowing when and how to walk in faith is challenging. Unfortunately, we can’t look for an absence of issues or a flurry of positive open doors to tell us, “Yes, this is the...

The God who makes men and women unique image-bearers, with special dignity and value also will complete the work He begins in those who follow Christ.

My dad was murdered when I was twenty years old. It was a deliberate, senseless act committed by a man whose selfish desires had left him blind.

Forgiveness was one of the first things God spoke over my life when I came to Christ nine years later, and though I was receptive to His leading, I was a bit confused. You see, I thought I had already forgiven that man. I honestly...

Therefore the Lord will wait, that He may be gracious to you;And therefore He will be exalted, that He may have mercy on you.For the Lord is a God of justice;Blessed are all those who wait for Him.– Isaiah 30:18 Perhaps the wise, seventeenth-century poet, George Herbert, said it best when he penned the words: “God’s mill grinds slow, but sure.” In today’s world of rapid response times and lightning-fast living, God’s timing can often feel excruciatingly slow during our season...

Sometimes praying feels like throwing darts – with your eyes closed. You hurl some words heavenward and wonder if you’ve hit the bulls-eye of progress. You hope something sticks.

Lately, I’ve been thinking, I don’t want my words to just touch heaven, but I want them to move heaven’s power on my behalf. I want to pray knowing, all I am – needs all of Him . I want...

We have a role in the success of our communication with God, just as much as we do when we communicate with our families. These tips will help you to do your part to have more purposeful, interactive communication with your Heavenly Father. Prayer is an essential part of a religious, spiritual life. As we acknowledge our own fallibility and the greatness of God, our prayers can be more meaningful. They can give us strength when times are hard, like when a child has a chronic illness,...

Have you ever been in a season of life where doubt, fear, and anxiety seem to loom over you like an ever-present dark cloud?

Feeling weary today? Distant from God? Anxious? Uncertain? In this article Tim Keller warms our hearts with seven breathtaking privileges of being a child of God set out by Paul in Romans 8:14-17: “For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God. The Spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship. And by him we cry, ‘Abba, Father.’ The...
