Discovering Your Happiness

Whoever said, “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words can never hurt me” must have never been told a rude word, or never went to high school. Words hurt, and they can leave scars with us that are difficult to heal. We are not perfect and we occasionally react in ways we wish we could take back. Sometimes we say things that are hurtful and that we don’t truly mean. Other times, we don’t even realize the things we are saying to another person can be damaging.

What’s Next?

I'm sure if some of us got a nickel for every time someone asked us, "what next?" we'd be rich! Whether you're graduating, leaving your job, moving out, getting married, or retiring that question follows us. We all want to know what's next. We cannot fathom the idea of leaving a situation, whatever it is, [...]

The Voices in my Head

When the world says 'no way' God's Word says 'yahweh' **Before I begin today's post I would like to apologize and thank you all for being patient with me.

Talk to God, Not Just About

This devotional is brought to you by a sermon from John Piper that is necessary to every person on their Christian journey. Psalm 23 teaches us the importance of communication with our Father, that it is important that we talk about Him to others, but that we also talk to Him. In verses 1-3 David refers to God as “he”: "The [...]

Day 6. Unite my heart to you "Unite my heart to fear your name" (Psalm 86:11) This world is full of division and our sinful heart's are no different. More and more of us are divided between wanting to resonate with God's heart, and fulfilling rebel desires and impulses.

Day 5. Give me your strength "Turn to me and be gracious to me; give your strength to your servant"  (Psalm 86:16) The other day I went to the gym and tried deadlifting 150 lbs, it was a sorry mistake to say the least. I was weak and in need of strength. Many of us also need [...]

Day 4. Teach me your ways. "Teach me your way, O Lord, that I may walk in your truth" (Psalm 86:11) Here I’m focusing on the wonderful request of verse 11 for God to teach us his ways. In any trial, a teachable heart is essential. Ask God what you should be learning about Him [...]
