Stop Following Your Heart

“The heart is deceitful above all things, And desperately wicked; Who can know it?" - Jeremiah 17:9 To anyone who has heard this verse a plethora of times, it's easy to skim over the verse without much thought - to say, "Yeah, I know, 'Don't follow your heart'," and move on.  But how often do we really stop...

Dear Heart, I Can Not Listen

Dear Heart, Many days, I make the mistake of listening to you. Maybe it was that long, frustrating day. That dreaded conversation. That fact that I screwed up - again. Perhaps I didn't meet that standard. I didn't do as well as I wanted. Maybe it's the frustration of gazing around my house, feeling overwhelmed... Continue Reading →

My Failures, God’s Grace

Often times when reflecting upon my life, all I can see in myself is a failure of a Christian. I see my never-ending struggle with sin. I know that Romans 6:1-2 states "What shall we say then? Are we to continue in sin that grace may abound? By no means! How can we who died to... Continue Reading →

In Fear’s Grip

  It cripples us and causes us to entertain irrational thoughts. It blinds us from truth and holds us captive. Because of it, we become stand-still, unable to move - or we are the polar opposite, shrieking, running, and shoving our way out. It keeps us imprisoned without the use of chains, locks, or bars....

You Don’t Need To Be Afraid

Having sent out an application this past weekend to volunteer with missionaries overseas, I'm reflecting on the internal conflict that warred within me. Although I was excited about the thought volunteering overseas once again and grew more certain in my mind that I wished to pursue this opportunity, I can not deny that I was... Continue Reading →

Why Are You Afraid?

I am always amazed by how much we don't do because of fear. Be it fear of what people will think, fear of failure, or fear that I will not be able to make ends meet, I have always been a fearful individual. Sadly, these fears of "what-if's" and "what will they think" have prevented... Continue Reading →

Pursued

Have you ever felt beyond being loved? That if people knew who you really were - complete with all your faults, problems, and mistakes - they would turn away and leave you? You know who you truly are behind the facade so often kept up. Who would love the real you? God answers this question... Continue Reading →
