    Friendship: Holding Up Tired Arms

    Today, I was reading in Exodus 17, and the Lord impressed upon my heart to share something with you. Before we get there, here’s part of the passage I read: The Amalekites came and attacked the Israelites at Rephidim. Moses said to Joshua, ‘Choose some of our men and go out to fight the Amalekites.

    Take Up a Tambourine and Lead the Dance of Victory

    Today, I was reading in Exodus 15. To provide some context, let’s look back at what the Israelites had experienced. They had been slaves in Egypt for a long time, and the Egyptians dealt harshly with them. The Israelites kept multiplying, and the Egyptian leader was afraid of how numerous they’d become. He was concerned […]

  • Hello, Victory

    Hello, Victory

    I’ve been reading in the Biblical book of Esther lately, which is a powerful story of God’s perfect timing and deliverance. Around chapter 3, things aren’t looking good for the Jewish people.

    Are you expecting a move of God? Is there something about which you’ve been praying and praying, now feeling like you’re on the verge of giving up? Are you trusting God for a miracle that has not yet been seen? As I was reading in Luke 18 today, the Lord put something on my heart […]

    Breaking Strongholds

    Are you carrying a weight on your shoulders? Is there something with which you’ve battled for years but feel like you can’t break free? It feels like a stronghold—a prison—and no matter how hard you try, escape seems impossible. In Luke 13, Jesus sees a woman who “had been crippled by a spirit for eighteen […]

    Overcoming Fear

    In today’s society, we are constantly faced with fear. Whether it be scare-tactics used by sales companies, or creepy concepts presented on investigative television shows, seeds of fear are thrown at our hearts. If we let them, they sink in, take root, and grow. If you find yourself battling fear, as I do at times, […]

    I enjoy many things, and one of them is exercise. You might even call me an exercise enthusiast. Yes, it’s true. I get excited by some workouts and consider it fun to exercise on vacation.

    Don’t Be Afraid

    In Luke 8:41, a man named Jairus fell at Jesus’ feet and pleaded with him to come to his house, because his 12-year-old daughter was dying.   While they were on their way, someone came from Jairus’ house and said, “Your daughter is dead…Don’t bother the teacher any more,” (Parts of Luke 8:49).   “Hearing […]
