Rest Assured

“We come close to God and approach Him with an open heart, fully convinced that nothing will keep us at a distance from Him. For our hearts have been sprinkled with blood to remove impurity, and we have been freed from an accusing conscience. Now we are clean, unstained, and presentable to God inside and out!” (Hebrews‬ ‭10‬:‭22‬) God is so in tune with our everything and we can be sure He will not reject us for anything. He accepts an honest heart poured out before Him. He’s not ready and waiting to stand waving a finger in our face, He instead waits with open arms. The conscience can trip us up and tell us to stay at a distance. … Continue readingRest Assured

“You Got This”

“Run the race marked out for you, fixing your eyes on Jesus, the Author and Perfecter of your faith.” (Hebrews 12:1) I heard heavy breathing behind me and steady jogging feet. The runner reached my side. It was obvious, he was so worn out. I looked at him and said, “You got this!” Can I say the same to you? In this race called life, we all get worn out.

In All “This,” It’ll Be OK

Our hearts might feel shattered and undone, but the Lord confirms His love is unfailing. He calls us to rest and be still in the truth that He will make all things right.

Though all around us and within us might give way, we can trust, we can rest in the Almighty. God’s every promise will come to fruition. Proclaim it. “God, you are my refuge and strength. My ever-present and proven help in time of trouble—Therefore, I will not fear even if every structure of support were … Continue readingIn All “This,” It’ll Be OK

Joy In Suffering?

It’s mysterious to think we could even begin to find any hint of joy in deep anguish and unexplainable circumstances. Isn’t it? Where are you in life? Or where have you been? Life is filled with chapters that can cause us to lose hope, even bow out completely. My steps have walked into suffering this past year, but the Lord has produced peace that makes no sense. It’s His promise that we can go from strength to strength as we fall completely on Him. Since the foundations were laid, our days were known to the Almighty. In the questionable chapters, what if it’s His way of pulling us in? To show us He’s trustworthy. To exhaust us of our own … Continue readingJoy In Suffering?
