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...

You Are Inspired

You’ve heard it before - maybe from your best friend, or your husband or wife. You are special. It’s true. You’ve got some talents and some skills, but that’s not what sets you apart from the rest of the world. You have been inspired. You’ve been filled by the Holy Spirit.

Looking for a Way out of Resentment

“Will you always be my stepmom?” Down went the clean laundry I was busy folding.  I looked up.  My stepson was watching me intently.  It was just the two of us, in a rare bit of quiet.  I searched for an answer. “Well, I will be your stepmom as long as your daddy and I are married.”  I wanted to be accurate, but also reassuring....

Tonia’s Story – God Met Me In Prison

Sometimes God finds us in expected places. Tonia was sitting in a jail cell, all alone, when she heard God whisper, “I’m here with you.” She remembers walking into court that day expecting an entirely different outcome. Tonia knew she was guilty, but her lawyer had told her that jail time was unlikely. There would be community service, a...
