He is Our Hope

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope. (Romans 15:13) In the great mystery of the Gospel, Christ made a way for us–His enemies–to find reconciliation with Him. In this chapter, Paul reminds the Believers that whatever was written in former days was written for our instruction, so that through endurance and the encouragement of the Scriptures–we might have hope (Romans 15:4). Life is full of trials and tribulations, uncertainties and tragedies. But see the kindness and love of...

Guarded by Perfect Peace

You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you. Trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord God is an everlasting rock. (Isaiah 26:2-3 ESV) We live in a broken and fallen world, where just around the corner, a mighty storm awaits, threatening to shake up and shatter the foundation we’re standing on. We recall Jesus’ parable about the wise man who built his house upon the rock, and the foolish man who built his house on the sand (Matthew 7:24-27). Jesus Himself is the Rock upon which we need to stand....

This passage is perhaps the most well known and memorized Scripture on the topic of trusting in the Lord. We see it everywhere–on coffee mugs, bumper stickers, wristbands, wall art and so much more. But even though I’ve heard it and read it...

Waiting for Him – Learning to Embrace the Wait

“The Lord is good to those who wait for Him, to the soul who seeks Him.” (Lamentations 3:25) There are many seasons in our lives where we must wait. We desire answers to questions that trouble us, the healing of a disease or sickness, a steady job, a spouse, children, a decent car to replace that one that proves so much trouble, a loved one to return home from an extended period away; the list goes ever on. For some, waiting has become a lifestyle–it seems that we’re always waiting, never obtaining what our hearts desire and are set...

How Shall We Then Love?

Before I continue on in this post, I want you, my readers, to know that I do not consider myself an authority on this subject of love, by any means. Over the past several months, the Lord has graciously been revealing to me not only how I have severely lacked in this area, but also how vastly important and greatly significant it is for my life. It is my prayer and hope that the words I write are sound, but most importantly that they cause you to have a greater desire to know Jesus and seek Him with Your...
