When It Feels Like God is Silent

When It Feels Like God is Silent

Do you feel like God is silent? Do you wonder if He is so busy talking to everyone else, He simply doesn’t have time for you Maybe you worry that you’ve done something in the past to make God turn His back on you.

How to Experience Real-Time Relationship Restoration

How to Experience Real-Time Relationship Restoration

I expected my usually happy teenage daughter to bounce into my office singing VBS songs from her morning spent serving at church. Instead, her sullen face conveyed another story. She was battling feelings of betrayal, insecurity, and jealousy after receiving a message from a friend about something that was happening in a completely different place.     Let’s just say this mama llama wanted to spew more than a few unpleasantries about social media and towards the adult involved behind the scenes.

It’s a serious deficit in the servanthood department. I wouldn’t think twice about letting someone else wash my feet, but the thought of doing it for another person, even my kiddos, doesn’t even cross my mind.
