Temptation

If you do what is right, will you not be accepted? But if you do not do what is right, sin is crouching at your door; it desires to have you, but you must rule over it.” Genesis 4:7 NIVHaven't we all been here? Having sin crouching at our door; luring us, enticing us, tempting us to do what we know is wrong but also feels so right. I recently had a dream that men were trying to get in my house. They pushed on the outside of the door trying to break in while I stood on the other...

In the Waiting...

What does it mean to wait on the Lord? What is it like for you to wait on the Lord? For myself, I’d often describe it as stressful, hard, long, and frustrating. However, there's starting to be a shift in my perspective. If you’ve never read the story of Joseph (son of Jacob) I suggest you go read it now.

I didn't want any parts of it.  If things got too hard I'd immediately start to doubt it's godly authenticity, saying things...

Resilience = Strength

What is strength? The capability to do something. We often associate strength with weight training or something like that, but I believe strength is a primary ingredient in a fulfilling Christian walk.Some similar words would be: toughness, steadfastness, firmness, courage, bravery, unwavering, and (my personal favorite) unshakable.     In a Christian walk strength could be demonstrated and perceived in so many ways. We need strength to carry our crosses and follow the Lord, we need strength to die to ourselves daily and we need strength to contend for the faith (however that may look in your life). Contending for...
