Hosea | Unfailing Love Changes Everything

I will repay you for the years that the swarming locust ate, the young locust, the destroying locust, and the devouring locust— My great army that I sent against you. Joel 2:25 All of us have places in our lives where the “locusts” have eaten—hopes dashed, mistakes made, and losses piled on. God says He will repay all that damage. The word repay in Joel 2:25 is shalam. Sound familiar? … [Read more...]

There's a constant battle of competing voices in our heads (please tell me I'm not alone here!) speaking words of truth and … [Read more...]

Living Room Sanctuary | The Value of Prayer

I’m terrible at prayer. Actually, it’s the discipline of prayer—setting aside time, focusing and making it a priority—at that, I am terrible. I talk to God all the time as I come and go in my day-to-day life—from ramblings in the car to inner dialogues as I ride the elevator at work. I am talking to God each day, but as for quality time—it’s skimpy. And life is hard. This week a dear … [Read more...]
