Fasting

[Editor’s Note: The Lenten season begins on Ash Wednesday next week, and our new Bible study Confident: Enduring by Faith in Christ begins on Monday, February 28. We hope you’ve planned to join us in studying Hebrews 11 and 12 over the next seven weeks. Let this article serve as a heart check for you […]

What’s your first reaction when the unexpected comes your way? Some of us grip tight to an illusion of control, only to lose patience and sleep as we anxiously deal with the challenges. Others escape to what’s comfortable, avoiding reality at all costs. Many of us cower in fear and shame, silently blaming ourselves for […]

The Start of Change A few years ago I did something long overdue: I went on a one-year shopping fast. I wish I could say I did it because I wanted to. I would prefer to spin this with me looking spiritual and disciplined. But the truth is I did it because one day God […]

I was eating only fruits, vegetables, and some whole grains. I felt amazing, had energy like never before, and was learning to appreciate the little things—like fresh strawberries on a hot day and homemade salsa with some warm baked pita bread. I loved it, and I kept thinking, “This is what God must have intended!” […]

Dying to Live If you’re a Hamilton fan, then you know there’s a moment in the show when George Washington is discussing the war with Alexander Hamilton, making the statement: “Dying is easy; living is harder.” I feel like there’s a correlation between that statement and what happens when you finally open the can of […]

Hope for the Woman Battling Sexual Addiction

In the Light This summer, I led a Bible study for the young singles in our church, and sexual discipleship was one of the topics in this series. It was also the week I had the most anxiety about teaching. In a conversation with a friend, I relayed my nerves about this particular week and […]

Maybe you’re unfamiliar with Ash Wednesday and the season of Lent that follows. I was for the majority of my life! But this season can be a beautiful invitation to the believer to come and worship God as we reflect on our need for a Savior.

The season of revival is upon us. In the blink of an eye, tiny sprouts of green will bud on the trees and the drops of color will sprinkle the ground. Spring is coming. My heart races at the thought of spring each year. By the time March comes around, the bare trees and bleak skies have made my heart burn for color and life. The seasons come and go every year, echoing the sound of revival and restoration. For centuries, God has continued His work of redemption in the spring, bring what was once dead back to life. What an incredible picture of the gospel? What a magnificent painting of grace!
