He Before Me

Studying the Bible

2016 didn’t turn out at all like I expected it to. I entered January 1st with big expectations and well thought out plans, but I quickly realized that the coming year wasn’t following my ideas. If I am being completely honest, I feel like when January 1, 2017 comes, I will breathe a big sigh of relief that 2016 is finished. This past year was hard, and in many ways disappointing.

2016: Looking Back, Gazing Ahead

Well-Watered Women

If you were to flip through my journal and glance at the past few months, you would see entry after entry of heartache, desperation, and longing. The past 100 days have been filled with trial, suffering, and trudging through a dark valley. Yet, through it all, Jesus has been so faithful. Here’s a bit of my story. – Gretchen

When Darkness Seems to Hide His Face

Watered by Love

Studying the Bible

Only one life, twill soon be past; Only what’s done for Christ will last :: CT Stud (Day 16 in our study of 1 Peter – 1 Peter 4:3-6) Each day we are given 24 hours, 1440 minutes or 86,400 seconds. That seems like so many, but in reality, at the end of each day […]

Hope That Breathes {Day 2}

Studying the Bible

There are days I walk through where I have hazy vision. I miss what God is doing all around me because of my to-do lists that have piled up, my questions that go unanswered and my dreams that are not finished. It is easy to lose sight of the Prize, Jesus, when our priorities get […]
