Have you ever felt as though your dreams have burned up and there is nothing left ashes? In Isaiah 61 it says, “He will give beauty for ashes, joy instead of mourning, praise instead of despair” (Isaiah 61:3) Continue reading…

  • A Place of Grace

    01/9/2020 When I was in junior high school, I got sent to the principal's office for, of all things, leaning back in my chair and falling. And when I fell, I fell right at on a teacher’s feet.

    01/6/2020 Let me ask you some sobering questions. When is the last time the cross of Jesus Christ moved you to tears? Can you “survey the wondrous cross, on which the Prince of glory died” and not be overwhelmed by His love and grace? Continue reading…

  • That's Incredible!

    01/2/2020 Do you have trouble accepting God’s love? Sadly, many of us do. We look at the sins in our past—and the ones we currently struggle with—and think there is no way God could love me. How could He want anything to do with a faithless wretch like me? Continue reading…
