Immanuel

Immanuel, Stillness is increasingly hard to come by in this restless, agitated world. I really have to fight to carve out time for You. Distractions come at me from all sides when I try to sit quietly with You. But having an intimate connection with You is worth fighting for, so I won’t give up!

Where do you typically fix your gaze during a stormy time in life? On God, on others, on a coping mechanism? Why do those things draw your gaze when Jesus is the One who can calm the storm?

God Will Help You Through Your Fears

  As famous lakes go, Galilee — only thirteen miles at its longest, seven and a half at its widest — is a small, moody one. The diminutive size makes it more vulnerable to the winds that howl out of the Golan Heights. They turn the lake into a blender, shifting suddenly, blowing first from

Can you sit still in the Lord’s presence? Stress can be crushing. We all know that, right? But, the Lord is ready for us to sit at His feet and touch us in a meaningful way with His Presence. What is it that you want more than that? Be still.

The Apostles’ Code: Countenance

The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace. — Galatians 5:22 The evidence of Spirit-filled living will not be in what we say or even in what we do. It will be written on our faces in our countenance of love, joy, and peace. The first proof is found in love. The Greeks had

The Fight

What if the only thing standing between where you are and where God has called you to be is a fight? It might be the last thing you expected, especially on your journey with Christ. We’re taught that “blessed are the peace-makers” and that we should “make every effort to live in peace” (Matthew 5:9;

The Fruit of the Spirit: Peace

Overcoming Anxiety and Conflict   Moving from volcano and earthquake country to tornado country required my (Wayde) family to adjust our thinking.
