Be Thankful In All Things

Don’t you think some of the hardest commands seem to be the ones that are the most clear and straightforward, like “be joyful always,” “pray without ceasing,” and our verse for today, “give thanks in all circumstances?" I find it hard because there are no loopholes;...

Grace, Gratitude & Glory

“For it is all for your sake, so that as grace extends to more and more people, it may increase thanksgiving, to the glory of God.” 2 Corinthians 4:15-16 The other day as I was preparing for today’s post, I noticed that Paul repeats the phrase “we do not lose heart…”...

Gratitude that’s not of this world…

"We always thank God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, when we pray for you, because we have heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and of the love you have for all God’s people— the faith and love that spring from the hope stored up for you in heaven and about which...

Thanksgiving With Passion

Ten men who are shunned for their leprosy, who are outcasts in their town, cry out to Jesus for healing. This is how our story begins, and all that Jesus says to them is “go and show yourselves to the Priests.” The lepers knew exactly what He meant and they must have...

What words will you say today?

In that day you will say: “Give praise to the Lord, proclaim his name;     make known among the nations what he has done,     and proclaim that his name is exalted. Sing to the Lord, for he has done glorious things;     let this be known to all the world. Shout aloud...

Week 1: Give Thanks

I’ve spent the last week with my dear friend, Edurne, a missionary to the Curripaco tribes in Venezuela and the director of our LGG International Branches. Living with her this past week has opened my eyes and made me thankful for things I never even knew I should be...

The Time is Now!

A little over five years ago I got an unexpected call from a childhood friend. Though she had kept in touch with my younger sister pretty regularly, I hadn't talked to her much at all in the twenty-five years it had been since her family moved away from our small...

Reaching the unreached: When God says go…

This week we're celebrating how God is using ONE WOMAN to make a difference for Christ in her nation. Today's post is written by Edurne Mencia: a wife and mom from Spain who lives in the jungle of Venezuela. She serves God as a missionary to unreached tribes alongside...

Your Invitation To Help Us Change Lives

(Click here to watch today's video) I recently sat in a meeting at a local seminary and shared about Love God Greatly: how our Bible studies are now being translated into 18 languages and are reaching women all over the world... in over 200 different countries, to be...

Living in Freedom Through Forgiveness

When the You Are Forgiven study book was announced, I thought it might not be a topic that really spoke to me very much. I’ve always been a “good girl,” staying out of trouble and trying to live for Christ. What did I have that was really that bad, or what had I not...

Choosing Forgiveness Over Bitterness

During my life, I have faced many trials. Each challenge has formed who I am today. Some would say that I have every right to be bitter, but carrying that anger with me has kept a focus on the past and hindered me from the path God has laid before me. The Love God...

Waiting On The Lord

(Melissa's previous testimony was shared in our You Are Forgiven book during chapter seven.) I hung up the phone with Joan after sharing my story, and for the first time in several weeks God had filled me with some joy. It was painful having to face the reality of...

Power of God’s Word

This has been the most amazing study. To find out how much God loves me and how deep His forgiveness for me goes is overwhelming. Daily I was blown away from the Scriptures that we read.  I realized through this study, the intensity of love my Heavenly Father has for...

Because He Forgives Me, I Can Forgive Myself…

In January 2016 I committed to completing a one-year daily bible reading plan.  Within three weeks I had fallen off the wagon.  So much was in transition in my life.  Let me explain:  In October 2015 I quit my job.  I had been working as a director of a non-profit...

How can you KNOW that you are forgiven?

How Can You Know That You Are Forgiven? These last eight weeks have flown by, and I pray that we're ending this study a little wrecked, a lot changed, and in complete awe of our great God and His mind-blowing gift of forgiveness. Many nights were spent praying and...

Beautiful Feet Bring Good News

They called her Moses. An unlikely heroine, Harriet Tubman was five-feet tall and suffered a brain injury at age 15 when a heavy iron weight was hurled in her direction. In the years that followed, she was plagued by sleeping spells and migraine headaches. Born a...

Week 8 – Now Is Your Time…GO!

For seven weeks now we've been reading, sharing, and diving into what it means to be forgiven. Slowly, day by day, we've taken this life-changing truth from God's Word and have applied it to our hearts. I know some mornings you've worked to embrace truth that feels...

The Joy Of Our Salvation

THE JOY OF OUR SALVATION William Tyndale was a scholar who translated the Bible into an early form of modern English. He was very outspoken about his views and especially passionate about the good news of the gospel. Tyndale said, “Evangelion (that we call the gospel)...

Called to love…

CALLED TO LOVE... "A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. By this, all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.” - John 13:34-35 Jesus loves everyone....
