Get Uncomfortably Kind

  We tend to think that kindness is easy. Soft. Nice. It’s something you learn in kindergarten — how to say “please” and “thank you” and share your Goldfish crackers. Kindness has gotten a rep of being like Glinda the Good Witch, all gentleness and smiles. Someone with a “No, please, after you, I insist”

Make a list of the worries you’re giving over to the Lord. Sit and think about it. Whatever takes your gaze off of him and sends you whirling and swirling has got to go!

God Is With Us In Our Worry

Hurt People, Hurt People

Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross. — Hebrews 12:1-2 In recovery we hear that “hurt people, hurt people.” We’ve all experienced this, and sometimes, we see it happen to others. It’s heartbreaking. School shootings, for example, are

Praising God through the anxious times takes resolve! We must, as believers, decide that we’ve decided! Praising Him when things are easy is easy! Praising Him and trusting when it’s chaotic and worrisome is a whole new level of spiritual maturity. Are you ready to level up, friends? Let’s do it!

None of us start down a road looking for pain; we look for joy, financial blessing, fun, happiness, good relationships… but not pain. But, the Lord knows what an effective tool pain is in our lives. Do you know that it’s your friend?

Pain Is Not the Enemy

One of the blessings of decision-making on a sacred pace is that there’s a definite end in sight — an answer awaits you somewhere down the road. Plus, you receive the gifts that your Father in heaven wants to bless you with. Yet I would be doing a disservice if I didn’t also speak to

  You may relate, but there are times that I struggle to keep the faith. Faith like that of the Shunammite woman. Have you heard her story? Let’s look. “One day Elisha went to Shunem. A prominent woman who lived there persuaded him to eat some food. So whenever he passed by, he stopped there

  In all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. — Romans 8:37 No matter what kind of trouble or challenge you face right now, overwhelming victory is yours through Christ.
