Lean in to Jesus

Jesus’ disciples are willing to follow him anywhere with joy. But that’s the challenge isn’t it? Deciding to follow Jesus is one thing. But how do you keep walking with Him when it’s hard, when it hurts, when it doesn’t feel like God’s plan at all? How do you stay close to Jesus when the circumstances just make you want to run away...

Filling the Void

Do you feel satisfied today? Do you like where your life is going? Do you feel like you’re making progress? Can you see where God is at work in your life? It’s easy to get bogged down in the daily details. The baby woke up early. Traffic on the highway is at a standstill. The client changed his mind, again. Sometimes it feels like we’re just...

It’s Better When We’re Together

We Can Face It Together

We fear what our friends and family might think if they knew what’s really going on so we keep up the smiles. “I’m fine…OK…great…. How are you?” But Jesus frees us to be ourselves.

What Happens to those Seeds You Plant?

When I get to heaven, I imagine Jesus pressing play on the highlight reel of my life. The dots will align. Intricately woven plot lines will merge into one story—God’s story of how He used me for His glory despite my weakness. I'll see the ripple effect of every act of service and every time I shared Christ with others. Tremendous joy...
