Choose Life

Choose Life

Can I ask you a question? Are you indecisive? Are you hesitant in making choices? Perhaps you are like my friend who agonizes over the menu in a restaurant because she just can’t choose, and when we go shopping she comes home empty-handed because she couldn’t make up...

Some Things Take Time

“Do not be deceived. God will not be made a fool. For a person will reap what he sows, because the person who sows to his own flesh will reap corruption from the flesh, but the one who sows to the Spirit will reap eternal life from the Spirit. So we must not grow...

The Gift of God’s Mercy

Ten years before I met my husband, I thought God had planned for me to marry another man. I moved forward in this relationship believing that I knew exactly what God’s will was—except it wasn’t. I ended up alone and heartbroken and wondering what went wrong. I realize...

Never Abandoned

I was born and raised in a Christian family, in a small village called Kinyinya in Tanzania. We were taught to go to church and give an offering, but I did not know why I was going to church.   While in high school, I met a friend who shared the gospel of Christ with...

God’s Promises

God’s Promises

God is sovereign. I can understand that truth in my mind, but putting that truth into practice in my life is much harder. I know God’s ways are higher than my ways, but when I can’t see or understand His ways and His decisions, then it is harder for me to accept and...

A Woman Who Fears the Lord

A Woman Who Fears the Lord

I’m sure many of us are familiar with Proverbs 31, even if you’ve never studied this chapter in-depth before. Perhaps you’ve heard people talking about being a “Proverbs 31 woman” or have seen someone’s social media username as “prov31girl.” Maybe around Mother’s Day,...

What We Have Seen and Heard

We were sitting on the couch in our pajamas reading a story and eating goldfish crackers. “Wasn’t that a great story about Jesus? We love Jesus!” I exclaimed to my grandson as I laid the children’s Bible on the coffee table.    Suddenly, the pint-sized evangelist...

History repeats itself. In this case, horribly. The term genocide wasn’t coined until 1944, but Oxford defines it as, “the deliberate killing of a large number of people from a particular nation or ethnic group with the aim of destroying that nation or group.” Such...

Wholehearted Worship

My mum was a quiet lady; she was gentle and kind and wise. Growing up, I always remember her using the expression, "Actions speak louder than words." She used it to teach me the value of showing that I meant something was more authentic than just saying the words and...

Held By God’s Hand

The story of Ruth and Naomi is a treasure. I sometimes do not realize how hard it must have been for both of these women. Naomi lost her two sons and husband, and Ruth lost her husband. For women in that day, this meant that their family name and property might not be...

Sing to the Lord

Sing to the Lord

I love worship music. Some of my most powerful moments with God have been during worship, listening to the body of Christ praising His name. When I close my eyes and focus on the words I’m singing back to the Lord, I’m more aware of the presence of the Holy Spirit. ...

Mary was just a girl.  She wasn’t highly educated. She wasn’t wealthy. She wasn’t perfect. Mary was in many ways ordinary, except in one: she loved God greatly.  And of all the young girls through all the ages, God chose Mary to be the mother of Jesus. What an...

Maybe this won’t resonate with everyone, but have you ever watched someone else walking in the same dreams you’ve had for your life? Perhaps it’s a dream or prayer you’ve long held on to, and over time, it begins to feel more and more impossible and out of reach. But...

Today’s scriptures share the story of Rahab. Identified as a prostitute, she seems like an unlikely hero or female role model. Joshua chapter 2 recounts how two males spies were sent into Jericho to scout out the land before the Israelites crossed the Jordan River to...
