Living Out Our Faith

Finding Calm to Quiet Your Soul

Finding Calm to Quiet Your Soul

This has been quite the year, hasn’t it? The world feels in chaos . . . relationally, economically, spiritually. How many times have you found yourself saying, “2020 can’t get worse, can it?” Well, the truth is that it can get worse, and we could easily find ourselves wallowing in despair if we don’t know how to process the promise of pain. The possibility of dire circumstances doesn’t have to be a declaration of hopelessness. We know that hard is part of life on this side of heaven. Jesus promises us such in John 16:33 (NIV), “I have told you these things, so that in…

Jesus is Our Better Hope

Jesus is Our Better Hope

Do you feel like God is depending upon you to take care of all the needs in your family, work, church, community? Maybe you feel like God is watching your every move, evaluating whether you’re measuring up to His standard. Maybe you think your performance matters much, even though you might not want to admit it. Maybe you’ve been duped into believing that blessings only come when you “get it right.” But no matter how hard you try . . . No matter how determined you are to live out the Word . . .

The Lord is Near

Does it feel like the Lord is near to you? Do you feel like you can cry out to Him with the deepest longings, secret hopes, and unspoken sorrows buried within your heart? Does it feel like God is watching you from afar, neglecting to hear your cry for help? Maybe you feel abandoned by God, as your circumstances rest heavily upon your shoulders. No matter where you find yourself right now, the reality is that there are times in our lives when we question the nearness of God. We all wonder whether His promises apply to us, particularly when we…

When Fear Overtakes Your Life

When Fear Threatens to Overtake Your Life

I’ll never forget the day my oldest came home from kindergarten with her ABC Bible Memory Verse assignment. With her three little fingers held up in front of my face, she declared, “W. What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee” (Psalm 56:3 KJV).  I shook my head at the Lord and said, “Really? This is for me, right?”  Fear has been my middle name since I was little girl, although you’d never know it by looking at the way I’ve lived.  I’ve managed to mask my fear with the appearance of strength, embodying all the mantras from…

When Your Work and Life is Redefined

When Your Work and Life Life is Redefined

Are you in a season of your work and life being re-defined? If you’re reading this in the wake of the Coronavirus Pandemic that swept our world, my guess is that your answer is “yes.” We’ve had our “normal” rocked. As I confessed in my last devotion, I struggle to not choose work over everything else, especially relationships. Nothing like experiencing stay-at-home orders to make that tendency all the more evident. How do I balance work with family? How do I walk in faith but steward my responsibilities well? Maybe your work right now isn’t only your paid job but…
