Lament is a powerful practice. As we express our pain to God, we also declare our faith in Him. When we cry out to Him, we recognize the way sin has caused pain and suffering in the world He created. Lament is a way to express our faith in Him, even while experiencing...

An Important Calling

An Important Calling

The Lord called my family to Myanmar to be missionaries. After we moved there, I quickly learned how difficult the language was, and I doubted my ability to learn it. However, God placed a desire in my heart to reach the women of Myanmar with His Word.  I began...

So Much More

It’s been quite a while since I was in high school, but I still clearly remember my English Literature teacher emphasizing the importance of how to start a piece of writing, and how to finish well. She insisted that we had to capture the readers’ attention, and then...

Why Good Friday is Good

Why Good Friday is Good

“Why do we call it Good Friday? Jesus died, dying isn’t good?” I was asked this by a 7-year-old a couple of Easters ago. How would you have answered?  So much of today’s reading is difficult, it's cruel, unfair, gruesome, it doesn’t seem good at all. However, we have...

The Cost of Eternal Life

The Cost of Eternal Life

As I sat down to read our passage for today, I knew I should read the whole chapter to get the context of Jesus’s words, but the enemy was distracting me and pulling my desire and attention away from God’s Word. Anything else seemed to be a better use of my time....

The Vine

The Vine

“I can do it myself. Don’t worry about me.”  These words have set the tone for more of my days than I'd care to admit. I like to consider myself a strong, independent woman. And although there is nothing wrong with this mindset, these thoughts of determined...

“I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” –John 14:6 Lately, I’ve been feeling like I’m living in what my girls would call, “opposite days" when they were little. An “opposite day” was a day where everything that was...

Jesus the Servant

This passage of Scripture might be a familiar passage, recording when Jesus washed the disciples’ feet. But maybe it’s new to you. Either way, there’s something about reading the Word of God with fresh eyes to see what God is saying through the Word. Just before this...

Look for Christ and Find Him

In his noteworthy book Mere Christianity, theologian C.S. Lewis said: “Look for yourself, and you will find in the long run only hatred, loneliness, despair, rage, ruin, and decay. But look for Christ and you will find Him, and with Him everything else thrown in.” ...

The Resurrection and the Life

Have you ever been in a situation that felt so dark and heavy, where there was little or no hope?  For me, I just returned from overseas and some of the situations I saw with my own eyes felt hopeless. I sat across from brothers and sisters in Christ, praying for God...

Now We See

If you lived in America in the 1980s and 1990s, you may remember when we rented movies (VCRs in my childhood) at Blockbuster. Many of the stores had posters that, on the surface, looked abstract or geometric, but they contained hidden 3D images. I’d stop to stare and,...
