Trusting God to Show Up

April 17, 2015

Trusting God to Show Up When is the last time God did something miraculous in your life? Yesterday? Last week? Last year? If it has been some time since you experienced an event that could only be attributed to God, you may not be risking enough for Him to show up. In 1 Kings 18, there is a well-known story [...]

Ultimate Fulfillment

April 16, 2015

Ultimate Fulfillment Time is short and eternity is long. It’s hard to imagine living forever because everything in our world has an expiration date. The milk in your refrigerator has an expiration date, your car registration has an expiration date, and even your body has an expiration date. You may have heard people say, “Nothing lasts forever.” [...]

How to Truly Live

April 14, 2015

How to Truly Live For years I worked with a youth ministry called Altaer. This unique name was derived from mixing the words altar and alter into one word.

The Power in Forgiveness I once heard a story about a woman who moved back to Georgia to purchase her childhood home. Her mother and father had passed away and the land had to be claimed.

God’s 4 Priorities for Your Money

April 9, 2015

Three Ways to Change What You See in the Mirror

April 8, 2015

Three Ways to Change What You See in the Mirror I recently started working out again after taking a year off from regular exercise. I never made a conscious decision to stop working out. It just happened. Life was busy and another year passed. About two weeks into my new routine, one morning I still struggled to just get up and go to the gym. [...]

2 Types of People Pleasers

April 7, 2015

2 Types of People Pleasers Proverbs 29:25 says, “The fear of man will prove to be a snare, but whoever trusts in the Lord will be kept safe.” I used to think that Proverbs 29:25ers—or those who struggled with the fear of man, what others think, and people pleasing—would be easy to spot.
