Dealing With “Unanswered” Prayers

We’ve all been there. We prayed for something, and it didn’t happen. “Does prayer even work?” I’m sure we’ve all asked ourselves this question. We all have prayers that go “unanswered.” How we respond to the unanswered prayers of our life matters. ...

The Privilege of Prayer

Week 6
 The Privilege of Prayer 1 Peter 3:12For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and his ears are open to their prayer.
But the face of the Lord is against those who do evil.” My family went to Disney for the first time this year, and I noticed two types of people: those who went through the fast pass line and those who stood in the regular line. The...

Kingdom Advancement

My heart has really great hiding places. Right now, there are areas of pride (and other sins) in my heart that I am unaware of, and in yours too. Hidden pride is comfortable pride, that is, it’s not bothered, it’s not repented of, it’s left alone…and pride likes to be left alone. ...

Guest Blog: Little Things Are the Precursor to Big Things

Little Things Are the Precursor to Big Things Sometimes it’s the little things in life that make the big things possible.

Sanctification - The Joy of Sinners

The first step one takes in their Christian walk, up until their last, is a battle; a battle to put off the old man and to put on Christ (Rom 13:14).

Eternal Joy vs Temporal Sorrows

As a Christian, you are (right now) the most blessed and privileged being in existence and no amount of earthly sorrow changes that.

What Our Lives Are Really Saying
