Blessings While We Sleep
During these difficult times many people struggle with sleeping at night. They stay awake or get poor sleep because they are constantly focused on their problems, and worrying about tomorrow. But that’s not God’s plan! He wants you to enjoy your sleep as a time of blessing and refreshing. Scripture reminds us that the Lord […]
Rest, Release, Refresh, Restore
How would you feel if someone came up to you today and said, “Give me all of your monthly bills; I’m going to pay them.” You’d get pretty excited wouldn’t you? But it wouldn’t happen until you did your part to actually hand that person your bills. They can’t pay them for you if you […]
Don’t Engage with the Enemy’s Lies
When that guy cat-calls you just to get a reaction, what do you do? You ignore him and keep walking. When that bully pushes all of your buttons just to make you mad, what do you do? you tune them out and move on. When somebody tries to convince you of something you know 100% […]
Value Every Moment
Our days can be so busy that we forget how fragile life really is. It’s easy to allow little things to creep in and steal our peace and joy. Maybe something doesn’t go our way, or someone says something upsetting. Even traffic can cause us to lose focus if we let it. We have to […]
