9/16/2021
Have you ever felt like the odds were stacked against you? Are you unknowingly living with a "big me little God" mindset? How does God respond in the midst of our fear, doubt, confusion, and anxiety? What does God see that we cannot? How do we fully live as His children? Are we guaranteed victory doing things His way?

Heart Check

7/7/2021
How was David able to lament the death of Saul? After all, Saul the king who had gone mad did try taking David out, multiple times. David was a man after God's own heart, and was more concerned with counting his own failures and shortcomings than he was keeping a detailed list of everyone else's dirty laundry. When we lament our own sin, then we can truly honor others, even our enemies. Heart check, when was the last time you were honest with yourself and allowed God to search every nook and...

Anchors can either weigh us down or keep us secure, and what we anchor ourselves to determines the outcome. Have you forgotten the countless times that God has been faithful to you?

Compelled By Love

6/13/2021
Peter, the disciple who denied Jesus not once but three times? Yeah, he was the one who recognized Jesus making breakfast on the shore that day and after being up all night fishing swim a hundred yards to shore. He was compelled by his love for Jesus, and it showed. How would our lives look different if we were marked by love, love for Jesus and love for others?

The Unchanging God

3/20/2021
What a gift that we can count on God to be the same today as He was yesterday and He will be tomorrow! Even when life ebbs and flows and the seasons we find ourselves in are constantly changing, we can always count on the One who never changes!

Raising the Standard

3/20/2021
Does God call His children to excellence in all things? Why does it matter, or does it? What can we learn from Hezekiah's life? Most expect the blessing of God without putting in the work, and while it may look cute on your kitchen towel, God does not, in fact, "bless our mess."

The Greatest Invitation

3/20/2021

A Thrill of Hope

3/20/2021
Hope is a powerful thing, and something we all desperately need as we muddle through this ongoing pandemic. Misplaced hope always misaligns our hearts with God and sets us up for disappointment after disappointment. Where or what or who is your hope in?

Anchoring to His Faithfulness

3/17/2021
How quickly do you forget how God has taken care of you? Does it even matter that we remember what He did for us 7 years ago? One of the best ways to strengthen and build up our faith is to actively remember the countless ways that God has provided for us! Even the Israelites forgot how good God had been to them and their puny little lives and pathetic excuses made life miserable for them. What are you anchoring yourself to; the constant waves of life that ebb and flow mercilessly? Or the...

Living Your Best Story

10/18/2020
Everyone loves a good story! But how do we live our best stories, especially when our lives are full of disappointment, pain, and heartache? Is there more to our story than just our accomplishments and failures? How can we live lives that are marked by Jesus and moved by love? One sinful woman shows us how, and what appears to be an extreme waste to some ends up being extravagant love for One.

Still Small Voice

10/18/2020
What is God saying in this season? The pandemic, the political divisions, the violence, the quarantines and our lives completely upended as we knew them, is God speaking still? Does God's still, small voice speak louder than the screaming of the world in which we live? And why does it matter? What if in missing God's whisper we miss out on passing on a legacy to the next generation?

Throw Up and Grow Up

6/4/2020
When do we grow from emotional experiences with God to actual encounters with God? When do we move from throw up to growing up? When do we stop wasting our lives magnifying and instead put Jesus on display? Is the Gospel partial to us and our own shortcomings, or is it for all? What do our hearts reflect about us? Jonah not only gets swallowed by a large fish for disobeying, but after surviving being thrown up by that same large fish, we discover that his heart is still far from God, even...

Dancing in Storms

5/25/2020
In the midst of a pandemic and a quarantine that never seemed to end, we all found ourselves in the midst of a storm. What if the storms of life were meant to be danced in instead of sheltered from? How should we respond when faced with adversity? How does God respond to us and our endless questioning? While it's true that storms bring destruction, they also bring great growth when received with open hands rather than resisted with closed fists.

Authority

3/9/2020
Jesus gave His followers a lot of authority, but what exactly does that look like and mean for us today? Elijah the prophet understood what it meant to stand and operate in God-given authority, and even though he stood alone, he used his God-given authority to put God on display and turn the hearts of people back to God.
