Start Somewhere: Overcoming Perfectionist Paralysis in Bible Study

Studying the Bible I started reading the Bible when I was a teenager. I knew it was important, and I wanted to obey God. But it didn’t take long to feel discouraged and confused. I wasn’t sure where to begin. If I tried reading a passage, most of what I read didn’t make sense. If […]

This is an excerpt from our Flourish Study: 8 weeks on the Fruit of the Spirit. Find it here. Deep beneath the surface of the earth is a world that rarely meets the eyes. In the darkness of fertile soil, the hands of God are molding, shaping, and cultivating the vegetation we see around us. […]

A Change of Plans 2020 has not been what anyone expected. When I wrote down my dreams for this year on January 1st, it did not involve a global pandemic or worldwide unrest. We are over halfway through the year. But chances are, you’re feeling tired, soul-weary, and a little offbeat. As I’ve dug deep […]

The Call to Abide Jesus gives helpful instruction to every believer in John 15. This passage overflows with encouragement to cling tightly to Christ (the Vine) as his father (the Vinedresser) cares for him and for us. We learn what it means to abide. Abiding in Christ means bearing patiently as he instructs and guides. […]

The Need for Truth I began my senior year of college with life turning out exactly as I had always imagined: graduating, then marrying the man of my dreams. Halfway through that year, though, my world was turned upside down with my mom’s diagnosis of brain cancer. Suddenly, my perfect world wasn’t so perfect, and […]

One morning, flustered and angry over the exhaustion I felt, and excusing myself from any form of discipline or accountability, I looked over […]

Preparing In Surrender If there is one thing that I want to encourage you with before we dive headfirst into our 40 days of prayer in the Psalms, it would be this wisdom from the missionary, Hudson Taylor: “You must go forward on your knees.” I think we tend to live life backward from the way […]

Join us for Lent in the Psalms As Lent begins next Wednesday, we will begin digging into the Psalms and praying through the Scriptures following our Breathe Study. The study focuses on 40 different Psalms. We also begin with some introduction and guidance on how to pray using Scripture. The number 40 is symbolic all throughout […]

Checking Boxes and Quiet Times They handed me a spiral-bound notebook and a Bible reading plan and told me to read my Bible for 30 minutes every day. Each day’s reading included two questions to answer. So, like a good little rule-follower, I did what they said. From seventh grade through my senior year of […]

The Book Above Every Other Book Nearly 130 million books exist so far in this world1, but only one Book has living qualities. Only one has been breathed out by the God of the universe. This book is the Bible. The Bible is the ageless, unchanging, life-altering Word of God. It is written by human […]
