The struggle is real. We’ve all been there.


It’s very easy to sink back into old ways, old habits, and think back to when things were “different.” Not just different - better. Certainly at least in our eyes. There’s nothing wrong with that.


I think about 9/11, an...

How often have we seen God move in our favor? I bet you and I could count on hands and feet how many times God has made amazing things happen when we ask Him to. Over the past eight months, I’ve heard and seen God over and over say yes to people I've been praying for:

 Busy-ness. I’m pretty sure it is far and away our biggest issue collectively today. We act as if we have to be extremely busy all the time - why do we put ourselves through this?

The Lord knows our human struggles, and I do believe He understands the challenge we can have trying to stay pure because the temptation Christ endured, in a purely human standpoint, was identical. As Christ was victorious over sin in His human life, we can trust th...

Jesus gives us a very unique window into the Holy Spirit's role in the life of the believer in John 16:7-15.

Here, Jesus speaks about the glorious mystery of the inner workings of God.


But very truly I tell you, it is for your good that I am going away. Unless...
