What it means to be a Child of God

Guest Post By Theresa Miller I did not grow up with a father who was there for me in the way a little girl needs her daddy. My parents divorced when I was eleven and my mom moved my five sisters and me two thousand miles away. I saw my dad only a couple of […]

How To Love While Letting Go

The story of the prodigal son, from Luke 15, has been on my heart lately; not because I have a child who has run away, but simply because I have a child who is growing up. I know that sounds so silly, almost insignificant, because that’s what children do — they grow up. In fact, […]

The Lure of Happiness

I read an Instagram post today that said, “Do whatever makes you happiest”. My first thought was, well that’s a nice sentiment, but then I thought, actually how sad it really is. Are they implying there are levels of happiness, by saying the “happiest”? Are they saying stay away from all things that may be […]

A Message In The Handiwork

Why are we captivated by sunsets and sunrises? Is it because of the beautiful colors they cast throughout the sky? Or, because they are complete in such a short amount of time, we feel the need to stop and capture them? Though our mind is unaware, our soul craves the messages that God has woven into His daily light show. – Read more by my very first guest – Nichole J Suvar

The Long Wait

How often are we caught in between seasons? A season of the long wait…when we are not sure of the outcome? Perhaps something has happened and caused us to wilt or wither, perhaps even quite unexpectedly…and perhaps we dont even know how we will survive this.
I have found there is only one thing we can do when we are faced with a long wait…and that is HOPE.

How To Find Your Way Back

God is so good!! Chapter 3: 6-12 contains a few verses, possibly […]

HOW GOD’S FORGIVENESS CHANGES YOU

Continuing my reading in Zechariah I came across this verse. This is a vision given to Zechariah about Joshua the High Priest. It is also a picture for all of us. Zechariah 3:3,4 (NKJV) 3 Now Joshua was clothed with filthy garments and was standing before the Angel. 4 Then He answered and spoke to those who stood […]

HOW TO TRUST GOD IN OUR EVER CHANGING WORLD

Change is hard. I’ve heard that many times throughout my life, but I always thought I handled change very well. I was good at adapting to new seasons. I welcomed change. That is, until I was faced with one my heart wasn’t ready for… I know those days of childhood are long gone and my […]

The Offering of worship

Zephaniah 3: 10,12 (NIV) 10 From beyond the rivers of Cush     my worshipers, my scattered people,     will bring me offerings. 12 But I will leave within you     the meek and humble. The remnant of Israel     will trust in the name of the Lord. Growing up in the church, I had come to associate the word worship with the time dedicated […]

Abide in me

Happy New Year…. That almost sounds shallow this year…every time I said that to friends or family I felt as though it didn’t really say how I felt. I wanted to say something more like – Have a safe new year. Remember what is important this year. Stay close to Jesus and keep your eyes […]
