I once heard a woman on television say she wanted another child because, “I know another child will make me happy.” She already had eight. If she birthed more babies, a hunch tells me she discovered Number 9 couldn’t do anything for her that Numbers […]

Have you ever wondered how to live in the “not yet” of an unfulfilled desire but still surrender to God’s will? Is it possible to pray in hope but still be okay with whatever God has in store? I once spoke with a woman who […]

When was the last time that you experienced a great unfulfilled desire? Maybe you had a particular desire to get pregnant, obtain a particular job, move to a particular state, make a particular amount of money, live without a particular physical pain, or marry a […]

What desires has God placed in your heart? What do you want to accomplish? What dreams do you want to reach? Who do you want to help? Who do you want to be for Christ, and why aren’t you bein’ it? I invite you to […]

One of my good friends often says, “Never put a period where God puts a comma.” It’s her way of reminding herself to stay flexible to God’s rule and to submit to His sovereignty over her life. This can be especially difficult when we’ve got […]

Like most people, I have spent a good amount of time trying to understand my life experiences. And, if I am honest, many things haven’t made sense. Unexplained paths. Dashed expectations. Disappointments. Shattered dreams. There have been times in life, probably like you, when I […]
