We Long to Be Seen

We Long to Be Seen

Jesus sees you. He really sees you. He sees everything about you. Jesus sees you and loves you. And, because he sees you and loves you, you can live securely.

And that is the best good news ever.

The world is moving at an unprecedented pace (even, or especially, during COVID). More news, more social media, more email, more texts, more…more…more of everything – and more than we can handle.

Confident Faith

Confident faith is displayed throughout the Bible since the beginning. For a list of references, check out the book of Hebrews, chapter 11. This may also be known as the “hall of faith.” This list consists of people in the old testament who stood in radical faith even before the Holy Spirit was poured out. They are our forefathers in the faith. They were written down as examples of what true faith looks like. But we who have received His...

New Year, New Me…?

New Year, New Me…?

Welcome to January!

I love a fresh start, a clean slate, a blank page.  My soul takes a deep breath at the opportunity to begin afresh, to try something new, to experience change.  Though...

Let God Be Your New Year’s Resolution

Let God Be Your New Year’s Resolution

I’ve never been very good at making resolutions or setting goals, of any sort, really. I mean, I’ve made fitness goals in the short-term, followed training plans, and managed to keep up with diet goals for a few weeks at a time. As a student, I set goals for grades per semester and usually managed to achieve them. But as far as general life goals, New Year’s Resolutions, or the like, I don’t even bother to set them. It’s...
