Simple Faith: Embracing Vulnerability

The armor that keeps you safe is blocking the light. Why don’t you put down that 10-ton shield, and see for yourself? The beautiful, dangerous fullness of life is waiting for you, and there’s only one way to experience it. Researcher Brene Brown said “Vulnerability is the birthplace of love, belonging, joy, courage, empathy, and creativity. […]

Spiritual Journey: When it’s time to step out on faith.

You’ll never feel ready. There’s never going to be a better time. There are no guarantees in this life. But you can count on the Truth: a step into the unknown for God leads into the Light you’re longing for. What’s stopping you? My son likes to look at the stats of my Unite in Prayer […]

Encouragement! For when you’re going through dark times

If the night wasn’t so dark, we wouldn’t see the reality of stars. On the black canvas of what you’re going through, I see how your spirit shines. God is an artist, who creates beauty with contrast

Simple Faith: Believe in what you can’t see

Faith is the ability to walk blindfolded across a tight rope. We need reminders that it’s possible to have unshakable confidence in nonphysical senses. How else could we ever traverse the narrow rope that lead to God? Impossible trust is a gift He wishes everyone would ask for.

Grace like a game of hearts

In cards, when you find yourself losing a game of hearts, you can secretly decide to accept it- it’s called shooting the moon. If you manage to lose completely, you actually win- it’s a path to victory. In faith, when you find your heart aching from the trials of life, you can secretly decide to […]

A busy mom’s prayer

Lord, You know I love my children more than anything on this earth. I want to give them the very best that life has to offer, but I find that I’m constantly pulled beyond my limits. Between their needs and all of my other responsibilities, I really need Your help. Be my eyes, when they are […]
