The Healing Power of Divine Love

When given a chance, the Sun melts ice every. single. time. No matter how thick and frozen the heart, keep praying – slowly but surely, the Light does the job. Love is the most powerful force on earth. Sure, people have free will to reject even our most heartfelt intentions. And often, we need to […]

Deeper Life: The Art of Surrender

We forget to thank the grape, while drinking the wine – but He’s the one, who can teach us how to surrender. Sometimes, we’re called to be crushed for the sake of another. Sometimes in our walk of faith, we are called to “turn the other cheek” for the greater good of God’s plan. Jesus […]

The most important decision we make in life

When the dust of this wild life settles and you can finally see clearly – when you look in a mirror, will you like what you see? Will you shine brighter than you did before the storm? One thing is for sure: in this world, we will face obstacles. In spite of our best intentions, […]

Unite in Prayer to soften hardened hearts and prevent violence

Ezekiel 36:26 I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. God, we are seeing an increase of malicious violent acts in our society, and it is horrifying. It’s tempting to label the people, who […]

Encouragement to seek God in ordinary moments

God hides the ordinary. Eternity wants to be found. In this moment, will you choose to look? Thomas Merton said “To be grateful is to recognize the love of God in everything.” I agree. I don’t think God lives exclusively in church, and I don’t think spiritual experiences have to be lofty, angelic or mystical (though […]

Simple Faith: Keep Your Heart Open

If mercy is for any, it has to be for all. The poor and sick are human, just like the cruel and ruthless. If our love can’t embrace the truth about hard hearts, it’s not soft enough yet. Without mercy, justice will turn us into stone, too. Wouldn’t life be easier if everyone was kind, […]

Today, I ask that you apply peace like a soothing balm to our aching world. Heal hearts that long for You. Through hearts, soothe families. Through families, soothe communities. […]

Finding beauty in the messiness of life

Who can take credit for the glamor of untamed wilderness? Meandering rivers, tangled forests, infinite shades of wildflower… I love how lavishly our Creator tosses seeds and allows them to grow freely. There’s something gorgeous about the messiness of life. If God wanted to, He could create a world full of structure and order. Instead, He created […]

How prayer cultivates unity

In case you can’t tell by the title of my blog, I have a heart for bringing people together. I struggle with the negative impact divisive political and religious discourse is having on our society. I want to use my voice to spread uplifting messages that help people connect to God and each other in […]

Will you open the door?

God doesn’t care if you’re still in pajamas or how long its been since you washed your hair. Every day, He shows up with an expectant grin to knock on the door of your soul. He waits patiently with a bouquet of roses, heart-shaped balloons and a flash mob of angels at His disposal, fully […]
