Start Seeing Miracles

Miracle stories like the feeding of the 5,000 and stories like Chastity’s invite us to think about how God works in our lives. Certainly, God is not limited to interventions that we can explain with science. God can work through means we might label as coincidence or accident or serendipity or luck or natural processes […]

Breaking News

Jesus’ message reminds us to step into the light of the certain victory and the triumph of God’s righteousness. Breaking news! We can leave all of this in the hands of God and go back to being the church, being a mustard seed, being the yeast in the dough. We should not bury our treasure […]

A Psalm for Slippery Slopes

The mountains in Psalm 121 are not God, but seeing the mountains helps the psalmist think about God who is the keeper Israel, the protector of the people, the One who never slumbers or goes off duty. When we find ourselves on slippery slopes, we need not fear, but instead, look for God’s leading. Ask […]

God is Greater

The ”God is greater than our highs and lows” design is a spiritual reminder that our identity is not based on what we have accomplished for ourselves, nor is it determined by what we’ve failed to do. Life will continue to have highs and lows. Don’t waste them! Trust God through the highs and lows […]
