Abraham’s Servant: An Old Testament Example

Recently I have been diving into the Old Testament. As I was reading Genesis, I came across a very key character, yet he is often overlooked. In Genesis 24, we see Abraham asking his servant to go out and find a wife for Isaac. The servant makes an oath to Abraham and sets out for […]

Just Scripture

Sometimes Scripture just needs to speak for itself. “We are pressed on every side by troubles, but we are not crushed. We are perplexed, but not driven to despair. We are hunted down, but never abandoned by God. We get knocked down, but we are not destroyed. Through suffering, our bodies continue to share in […]

Grief Turns to Worship

As we celebrated the resurrection this Easter, I spent some time reading in each of the four gospels, focusing on the women who discovered that the tomb was empty. I love so much about this. I love that it was the women that were there first. I love that they were doing what they could […]

How Do I Abide In Christ?

“So if you want to know the Lord Jesus Christ, you must live with Him. First, He must, Himself, speak to you, and afterwards, you must abide in Him. He must be the Choice Companion of your morning hours, He must be with you throughout the day, and with Him you must also close the […]

Such a Time as This

I live a mile from what locals call “Lincoln Farm”, a small rolling farm that was once owned by a man named Thomas Lincoln.  There, on a cold day in February, a baby named Abraham was born in a tiny cabin…a baby destined for history.  President Abraham Lincoln is one of the most recognizable presidents […]

You Can Be Anybody You Want

I have heard so many times spoken to me or those around me, as a slogan for a motivational speech or a pep talk from a teacher, a parent’s encouragement to their child and a mantra for this generation: You can be anybody you want to be.  Even just reading those words now may make […]

Following God, Even When We Don’t Want To

My whole life I have been trying to follow God’s will. It has always been relatively easy since, from a young age, I have known that God has called me to teach French. In following God’s will, there have been ups and downs, as there usually are, but I finally graduated with a degree in […]

Settling for Less

I remember the last family reunion I attended where several young families stopped for fast food for their children on the way to the gathering.  I understand the issues with picky eaters so I’m not judging, just observing! I come from a long line of great cooks and there were tables loaded down with dish […]

Suffering to Resurrection

“Everybody wants resurrection, but nobody wants suffering!” I read this quote recently in an article I was reading, and it caused me to stop in my tracks and ponder its truth. What a revolutionary quote, especially for our world today! In the Easter season that we just celebrated, we are reminded overwhelmingly of the suffering […]

A Good Good Father on Good Friday!

It’s Good Friday and today marks the day our Savior willingly chose to give Himself up for us! All of us, or one of us, Jesus died on the cross so we could have the opportunity for redemption. A love that holds that much immeasurable depth truly boggles my mind because in my broken, human […]
