Living Out Our Faith

Three Ways to Not Give Up When Life is Overwhelming

3 Ways to Not Give Up When Life is Overwhelming

Are you tempted to give up on God or your commitment to living out your faith when life is overwhelming? I can certainly raise my hand! An ordinary day can be overwhelming enough when it comes to balancing motherhood, marriage, ministry, and work, nevermind what life feels like when the unexpected happens. Health issues for my daughter. House issues and too many sales guys trying to pitch solutions. A limping dog. Car dashboard lights flashing warnings. Dear friends going through horrible losses.

The Lord will Provide | Encounter God #10

The Lord Will Provide | Encounter God #10

Does God actively pursue us to see if our hearts and lives are aligned with His commands, promises, and plans for our lives? Do you think God still tests us like the way He tested Abraham in the sacrifice of His son Isaac? As we peer into Genesis 22, looking at the encounter between Abraham and God — a profound encounter of instruction and obedience, trust and waiting. God instructs Abraham to sacrifice his son, Isaac.

Is the whole Bible really about Jesus?

Through what lens do you see the biblical narrative? Is it as a whole or in two distinct parts? Is one part solely drawn from the Old Testament where we meet our Creator God? It is only there that we find our Sovereign God, the one who gave the law and passes judgment but can also be compassionate, merciful, and long-suffering? What about the New Testament?
