“I’m busy…always”

Sometimes I think a full schedule of things to do is one of the enemy’s sneakiest tricks into living an unfulfilled life. Our planners full of meetings to attend, people to meet, and events to participate in may make us feel like we are doing something worthwhile and important but often times those things that…

A lifestyle of praise

I used to think worship was just the thirty minute part of Sunday morning church service when we sing. That all it took for me to worship was to repeat the words that I saw on the screen. And that I was done with “worship” when I stepped out of the doors of my church…

Antidote to Busyness

We live in a world that thrives on busyness. From the moment we hear the ringing of our alarm clock to the minute our head hits the pillow at night we just go, go, go. If we are lucky enough somewhere from the time of waking up to falling asleep we get a little break…

“I want ____ more than God”

When I used to think of the word “idol” many images come to mind. People dancing around a golden calf. People bowing down to a statue of Buddha. People worshipping the rising of the sun on top of a high mountain. But often times what I forget is that an idol isn’t just a statue…

Practicing what you preach

I’ve always had good intentions in life. Intentions to make God #1 in my life – the center of my very existence. I plan on waking up earlier the next day to spend some one on one time with Him… but then I keep hitting snooze on my alarm clock. I have intentions to encourage…

Press Pause: Take a break from life

I have always wanted to be superwoman. The girl who’s always on top of it. Ready to save the world. Do anything and everything anyone ever asks of her. Carry the hurt, the pain, the burdens of everyone around her. Fix everyone’s problems. Face each day with a big smile on her face, a “go-getter”…

No More Comfortable Christianity

These last few months have been a bit of a rollercoaster for me emotionally, mentally, and spiritually because of one simple prayer. A prayer I don’t know why I continually repeat. A prayer that is constantly on my heart. “Break my heart for what breaks Yours”. And God has answered that prayer, because heartbroken  I…

On your deathbed {what will matter?}

We live in a world of “here and now” and sometimes we forget that there is a bigger picture. A greater purpose. A specific reason for every single beat of our heart. We focus so much on the external, temporary things of life and get caught up in worldly pursuits that we forget the reason…

Thirty minutes can change your life…

Thirty minutes in front of the tv will leave you empty or entertained. Thirty minutes reading a book will give you enlightenment and escape. Thirty minutes in the gym will give you energy and strength. Thirty minutes on facebook will leave you distracted and alone. Thirty minutes playing your favorite sport will leave satisfied and…

One day left to live…

We have all heard the saying, “Live today as if it was your last one” – “Don’t take this day for granted, you are not guaranteed a tomorrow” – “Treat others the way you want to be treated, you don’t know if you will ever see them again” and on the list goes… We all…
