    Saturday Thoughts: Trusting God through Disappointment

    I’ve told you guys before how Justin (my husband) and I have been trusting God ever since we moved to TN. We’ve been living by faith and I have constantly sought God’s will and plan for our lives. Last month I thought the Lord told me something, that a financial miracle was coming by the end of April. And I mean, I heard it multiple times when I was spending my quiet time with Him. When it didn’t come, I thought the Lord told me He was testing my faith and that the miracle would arrive within the week because I passed the test. A week has gone by and…

    The Gift of Faith

    We all need to exercise faith as followers of Christ. The Bible says that we are to live by faith, not by sight (Rom. 1:17; Gal. 3:11; Heb. 10:38; 2 Cor. 5:7). And for most of us, that is really hard. In fact, I would say it’s the hardest part of being a Christian. One of the things I’ve heard most from non-Christians, on why they don’t want to be saved or why they don’t want to follow Christ, is that they can’t live by faith. They believe what they can see and what can be proven and they expect every question to be answered. But that isn’t how Christianity…

    Blown and Tossed by the Wind

    I’ve been seeking the Lord a lot more lately because of our financial circumstances and trying to figure out what He wants from us. And He keeps telling me over and over to trust in Him. And today, in my morning quiet time, He led me to these three verses from James. 6 But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind.7 That person should not expect to receive anything from the Lord.8 Such a person is double-minded and unstable in all they do. (James 1:6-8) The Lord revealed to me that I keep asking Him for…

    The Truth About Discouragement

    You know, it’s really easy to give people advice, but it’s a lot harder to actually act on it yourself. So when you guys read these posts or watch my vlogs, please don’t think I’m saying anything lightly. I know how hard it is to do what God calls us to do. I’ve talked a lot about discouragement in the past like not giving up and how to have motivation and all that great stuff. I know everything that I’m supposed to do to encourage myself: Go to the Lord in prayer Sing praise and worship music Spend time studying God’s Word Rebuke the enemy Change my thought patterns Live…

    It’s All About Grace

    If you’re anything like me and grew up in the church, or even if you are new to Christianity but you’ve been going to church recently, you’ve probably heard the word “grace” thrown around a lot. God’s grace, giving grace, having grace, receiving grace…grace grace grace. I think we can hear something over and over without really understanding it. I mean, I hear people talk about our economy but I still don’t really understand how it works because I’ve never studied it. Never wanted to, still won’t. But, I have grown up hearing about grace and I don’t think I truly understand what it is or what it means or…

    Love Rejoices in the Truth

    Today we’re continuing my series on love taken from the scripture 1 Corinthians 13:4-8. What is truth? In society today truth seems to be whatever one wants it to be. If I want to believe something, it’s true to me. But is that really truth? What if my truth says that your truth is wrong? Does that still make it true? According to Webster’s dictionary truth is: “the quality or state of being true” “that which is true or in accordance with fact or reality” “a fact or belief that is accepted as true” So, I ask again. What is truth? Truth is not subjective. How can it be? If…

    Love Does Not Rejoice in Evil

    In today’s post, I’m going to continue my study of love found in the Bible passage of 1 Corinthians 13:4-8. I want to focus on the verse, “Love does not rejoice in evil.” I guess our first question is, what is evil? Let’s look at the Word of God. 20 He went on: “What comes out of a person is what defiles them. 21 For it is from within, out of a person’s heart, that evil thoughts come—sexual immorality, theft, murder, 22 adultery, greed, malice, deceit, lewdness, envy, slander, arrogance and folly. 23 All these evils come from inside and defile a person.” (Mark 7:20-23)  29 They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They…
