You Are Not Your Job Title

I sometimes wonder if I’ll ever do something important with my life. Will I ever get to achieve something valuable or attain true success in my career? Or will I be stuck at a desk, doing filing and answering phones for the rest of my life?

God Can Use the Unexpected

Even though disappointment hit me hard recently, that doesn’t mean I have an excuse to curl up in a ball and pout. God is working in ways I can’t always observe or understand, but His plan is at work. He can use me—and you—even in our disappointment.

Where Is Prince Charming Hiding?

God has good in store for you, dear friend. If it is God’s will, Prince Charming will come. Yes, the wait is long and exhausting. But we can never believe that lie that God is holding out on us.

The Real Reason I Write

We all struggle to find our identity in Christ alone. We all want to find our value in something we achieve, and we want others to notice our achievements. But Christ notices us—even without our achievements.

Beating the Summer Boredom Blues

I have no idea what you should do this summer to avoid boredom, but I do know that you should use your summer well. There are countless opportunities for you to grow as a Christian this summer, but only you can choose to pursue them.

How to Transform Your Thought Life

The problem with focusing on our smartphones, relationships, struggles, or anything else is that we take our eyes off Jesus. Instead of making Him our first thought and our last thought, we think about Him when it’s easy or convenient. But that’s not how we’re called to live—or think.

Until Our Last Day

This poem is based on Ruth 1:16-17, which describes Ruth's loyalty to her mother-in-law, Naomi. Even though Ruth had just lost her husband, father-in-law, and brother-in-law, she was still determined not to leave Naomi alone. Her courage and loyalty serve as an example for us in our relationships today.

You Are Not Your Size

Satan wants to convince us that something is wrong with how we look. He whispers that nothing fits me well and that my body is dreadfully ugly. But Satan is “the father of lies” (John 8:44 ESV). He wants us to believe anything that will draw us away from the Father.

Saying Hello—and Doing Other Hard Things When I Don’t Feel Like It

What if ____________ (fill in the blank with a biblical command) isn’t about if we feel like it? I admit that I act based on how I feel a lot. If reading my Bible is convenient, I’ll open it up. If being encouraging to a friend is comfortable, I’ll do it. If saying no to temptation is easy, I will. But that’s not how God designed for His people to live.

Movie Review for “Breakthrough”

The message of this movie is clear: don’t give up hope and trust God’s plan. Even when tragedy hits. Even when the future is uncertain. Even when we don’t understand what He is doing. The power of prayer and surrender is a crucial aspect of this movie.

Our Spirit is Willing but Our Flesh is Weak

Sometimes, we read Scripture and wonder what we're supposed to learn by reading it. We get distracted by our buzzing phones, future tasks, or anxiety. But sometimes, God gives us a lightbulb moment. Last week, God turned the lightbulb on in my mind. The Scripture passage made sense. I knew what I had to do... Continue Reading →

At the Foot of the Cross

The words of this poem come from the Gospel accounts of Christ's death. I hope this poem demonstrates that Christ died for us—and for everyone involved in His crucifixion—not because we deserved it but because He loves us with an immeasurable, everlasting love.

What No One Ever Tells You about Insecurity

There’s no way to avoid insecurity or delay it. We can’t expect it to go away when we get older, and we can’t better ourselves so that we no longer experience it. But here's the truth about insecurity that nobody has told you.
