Trustworthy and True

Trustworthy and True

Every few years, I’ll start a Bible reading plan that takes me through the whole grand narrative of Scripture in a year. And I must confess, when I would reach passages where genealogies span over multiple verses, I used to be a bit disappointed in the day’s readings....

Convinced and Committed

Convinced and Committed

I sat across from a friend sharing coffee and conversation when I confessed a longing I had been hiding. After the words were out of my mouth, I almost wished I could push the rewind button and take the desire of my heart back. But the words had been spoken, and they...

Acting on the Promise

Acting on the Promise

I love reading about the faith of ordinary people. It is inspiring to witness Abraham’s faith on multiple occasions throughout Genesis, because he is a real human being like you and me. One instance takes place in Genesis 24, when Abraham sent his servant to find...

A Legacy of Faith

A Legacy of Faith

What is faith? Hebrews 11:1 says, “Now faith is being sure of what we hope for, being convinced of what we do not see.” Have you ever stopped and thought about how faith is shaped within a family? What’s the story of faith – or lack of faith – in your family and in...

Remembering His Faithfulness

Remembering His Faithfulness

I've never studied or prayed more about peace, forgiveness, and reconciliation like I have since walking through divorce. I never knew how enormous the wake of destruction that divorce leaves behind until I experienced it myself. Culture loves to water down the...

All His Promises

All His Promises

Anger acts like a cloud over our rational thinking and judgement, causing us to easily lose perspective. As a result we often make poor choices when angry. In today’s reading, I think Sarah was not only angry but also felt jealous and regretful. She had just watched...

With Her Own Hands

With Her Own Hands

I’ve been a runner since I started racing around the track as a fourteen-year-old. A few years ago, I signed up (and paid) to run the Chicago Marathon. It was a long-time goal I was excited to accomplish.  As I started the necessary long training runs, I developed...

For All Who Believe

For All Who Believe

I will never forget the first time I taught the story of Sodom and Gomorrah.  I had agreed to help teach a women’s Bible study on Genesis at my church. When I showed up to our teacher training day, I realized I was quite a bit younger than most of the women in the...

God’s Care for the Righteous

God’s Care for the Righteous

As we continue in our study of Genesis, we see Abraham recognize God’s care for the righteous. God chose to reveal to Abraham His plan to destroy the city of Sodom. God did not need to tell Abraham what He was going to do, but He chose to allow Abraham (and us) to see...

The Beginning Of A Nation

“But far be it from me to boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world. For neither circumcision counts for anything, nor uncircumcision, but a new creation.” Galatians 6:14–15 Today we get to...

A Life of Faith

A Life of Faith

There was a season of my life when I was my own boss, and that season came with a lot of tears, mistakes, pains, and regret.  Scriptures tell us that we were created to give God pleasure. The entirety of why we are on earth is for the will and purpose of God and...

A God Who Redeems

A God Who Redeems

 I don’t know about you, but I’ve been through a variety of seasons in my faith journey. I’ve lived through fruitful seasons, and I’ve also experienced seasons of suffering where I didn’t see how God could redeem it. And yet He did. I’ve sat alone in my bedroom at...

When You’re Cheated by Someone You Love

When You’re Cheated by Someone You Love

I think a lot of us can relate to the family disagreement found in Genesis 13 between Abram and Lot. Sure, we may not have had arguments over land, but we have had arguments over family money, family homes, or family keepsakes - treasures in various forms. Abram had...

Overcoming Shame, Walking in Faith

Overcoming Shame, Walking in Faith

Divorce changed me. I was a young woman who was on fire for God and ready to slay giants for the kingdom. Then my life changed and I wore the resultant shame like a garment. See, I’m an African child. We are taught to be strong and resilient. You bear it all and when...

Imperfect Faith

Imperfect Faith

When I was in elementary school I had a habit of claiming I’d read the latest book or knew the most popular song, even though it wasn’t true. Not only did I want to fit in with my peers and be part of their conversations, I felt very strongly that I should do whatever...

I Am A Conqueror

I Am A Conqueror

Lately, I have felt weak, weary, and burdened. I think this is because I have been looking to myself when things get tough rather than relying and depending on God, the only One strong enough to defeat the work of the enemy in my life and in this world.  It is not...

Before I drew my first breath, my life was in trouble. Most babies emerge into the world crying, I emerged silent. My mom, having just endured hours of excruciating labor and then an emergency vertical C-section in a remote military hospital, was worried the moment...

I Am Known By God

Everybody wants to be known. Even if you are an extreme introvert, you want to be known. We want there to be at least one person with whom we can feel so comfortable that we can share anything and everything with them, the good, the bad, and the ugly, without fear of...
