Jehovah-Shalom

Has your heart ever been so heavy it feels like it’s just going to fall right out of your chest? Or your mind is so cluttered and it just might explode if something else is put there? Or if one more bad thing happens you might just break, and then another bad thing happens. Do… Continue reading Jehovah-Shalom

Songs of Waiting

Songs of Waiting

Our culture is obsessed with sex. Society pushes it and throws it in our face. It's running rampant in our adults and our young people. And all the advice we give them is to remain pure. "Don't conform, kids," we say, but when we do that, we are blindly shooting the arrow and hoping it… Continue reading Songs of Waiting

Plans of Hope and a Future

If you would have told me that this is where I'd be at 23 years old, I would have laughed. I wouldn't have believed you. I never imagined myself here, but I can't remember half of the plans I had for myself at this age. I know it didn't look like this though. Never did… Continue reading Plans of Hope and a Future

On Freedom and Freedom

I heard a testimony of a missionary who smuggles Bibles into countries where they are persecuted for their belief in Jesus. He has been to places where the locals have underground church services and sometimes people share one page of the Bible at a time. Y'all, one page. I couldn't imagine that. I couldn't imagine… Continue reading On Freedom and Freedom

God of Jacob

Writings from the Heart

Tears

We Mess Up, He Cleans Up

Do you ever feel like you've messed up one too many times and there's no bouncing back? Or maybe you messed up once, but the thing you did was so bad there is no way you can come back from it.

Writings from the Heart

Mascara Stains

She has mascara stains on her pillow. Every day she runs into her room and hides her face in the pillow. She cries all the time and she hopes the pillow muffles the sound of her sobs. She doesn’t remember ever crying this much, but one day she found herself sitting on the floor on… Continue reading Mascara Stains

Prayer

I close my eyes and open my heart. My knees bowed and my spirit lifted. The duty of an intercessor, I begin to speak. Thankful, I praise. Grateful, I worship. In my room and on my floor, But part of something more. “My Father in heaven,” But with me and in me. How can it… Continue reading Prayer
