Do you live in a safe, “Christian” bubble? I’m afraid that I do. I’m coming to realize that while we often keep ourselves at bay in a world that wants to do us harm, we are not fulfilling our true calling of bringing others to Jesus. Salesmen don’t sell products to those who already own them, and we can’t share Christ in the same way with others who already know Him.

My latest devotional at the God is Love blog talks about this. I’d love to hear what you think. Send me an email or use the comments below to start a conversation.

Then let’s get out there and share the light in a dark world!

I’m feeling a burden for myself and for our culture to try and see the best in people and not the worst. And not the fake best, the mask that we use on ourselves and each other in our Facebook feeds and Instagram stories. I want to see people the way God sees them. My devotional at the God is Love blog this month is all about potential. What do you think? Use the comment section below or contact me and we can start a conversation about it!

Silence is such a hard thing to come by. Our world is loud and busy and I’ve become accustomed to it. For better or worse, I’d rather fill the space around me with words and music and talking than be alone with my thoughts some days.

God’s voice is loud enough to make the rocks cry out, if He chooses. But isn’t better for us if we make room so He doesn’t have to speak through burning bushes and lightning strikes? Silence can be a very good thing, if we let it.

Here’s my January 2019 devotional for Devotions from the Heart about the topic of silence.

Do you have a daily practice of silence? Or is this something you’d like to cultivate but, like me, don’t always know how? Leave a comment or use the contact form to let me know what you think. I’d love to start a conversation about it!

I’ve got a new devotional up today at the God is Love blog. This has been a year of emotional struggle for me. I love to think, like the song Laura Story wrote, that sometimes our blessings come through the struggles, through the raindrops and through the tears.

For better or worse, this broken world we live in is constructed so that only through tearing down a muscle, can it be built up stronger. 

I would love to hear from you if you’ve had a struggle that has ended up being a blessing to you. Drop me a line at my contact page or comment on this post. I’d love to start a conversation.

Have a beautiful day!
