Grace & Truth {Week 7}

My heart has been so heavy the last couple months as I've watched ISIS wreak havoc on the world. My heart breaks that so many are suffering at the hands of extremists that hate people and all that they stand for. I've worried about the world that my children are growing up and even feared that they might be harmed by people like this. But, I'm encouraged because I know that God is sovereign! I know that God wins in the end! Hallelujah! So, I couldn't help but choose Dawn's post, God is … {Read More}

The Tension of Balance

When I was single I remember having this passion for discipleship and ministry in which all I wanted to do was read the Bible, gain the knowledge of the Holy, put that knowledge to action in service and help others do the same. I distinctly remember being 100% all-in. I was free from distraction in my walk with Christ and it was life-giving and utterly amazing! And then it all … {Read More}

What God Really Wants

What God Really Wants

"To obey is better than sacrifice." I Samuel 15:22 This phrase from God's Word shows us much about His heart and His true desire for His people. He wants us to obey Him. We know this. Most of us would readily admit that the One who created us owns us.
