In this post, Dani shares her journey of discipleship with Christ. In her life, the book, Love Does by Bob Goff, helped her to embrace the sometimes terrifying and always rewarding adventure of obedience in following Jesus, even in her day-to-day work and relationships. Where is God calling you to obey him in your daily life, and how would it change if you said “yes”?
Gathered Under God’s Wings
In scripture, the word “wings” is often used as a symbolic term for God’s protective covering. But a covering is only beneficial as long as we remain under the protection it provides. Step outside of the covering of God’s love, and we are certain to find ourselves suffering at the mercy of the elements - frantic in our search for shelter against the encroaching dark.
Do You Trust or Panic in Anxious Situations?
Panic and fear are common emotions, but in this piece, Amy reminds us of some truths from Scripture, encouraging us not to give in to worry and anxiety. The very God of the Universe, the Creator God, cares for each one of us; we are his and he is ours. In Scripture, he promises us that he will strengthen us, help us, and hold us up. We’re not in this alone.
Faith Like a Child
Can God heal? Yes, he can. Does God intervene in impossible situations? All the time. Does God move the hardest of “mountains,” the human heart? Absolutely. But do we ask him? Maybe we don’t pray for these kinds of things because we’ve grown up too much. What would it look like for you to have faith like a child and how would it change your prayers?
The Security of Faith
Are you or someone you love struggling? Are you wondering, "Why is this happening? Where to turn for security? How to maintain hope? Whom to trust? Will faith wane?" Psalm 91 teaches us that we must encourage each other to experience a security of faith and to "fear no evil." From God's high place, nothing can take us out. Let us discover how we can overcome and endure whatever life brings us.
Having Faith in Tough Times
Struggles are real and our questions about them are not easily answered. In the midst of our difficult times - times of confusion and loss of hope - our outlook can become skewed as we are consumed by our circumstances. However, Christ saves us and sustains us, even when times are tough. How have you experienced God’s faithfulness, even when life is hard?
