Years ago, a friend and I were lamenting over our overwhelming "to-do lists" when she said something that, to this day, I still think about. She said, "The thing I keep reminding myself of is this… I'm an infinite being, and my to-do lists are finite. Somehow that helps me keep things in perspective." We are infinite beings!

A medium dive into this took me down several paths. Namely–– Why do we pray? How do we pray? Who enables us to pray? What makes prayer powerful? Years ago, a portion...

Context is everything as is perception. Both can be game changers when it comes to giving thanks. The book of Thessalonians was written to people who were being persecuted for their faith in Jesus Christ. The Apostle Paul, its author, wanted his readers to know they could live (or die) with HOPE. Jesus rose from the grave and they could look...

This week we get to unpack what Jennie Allen called “the transforming power of awe.” She says, “Delight in God and His goodness tears down our walls and allows hope, trust, and worship to flood in.” Cynicism is the direct opposite of this. The cynic is always waiting for the rug to get pulled out from under them. Cynics may call themselves...
