Through the Eyes of a Lion

What encourages you on a hard day? For me, it’s a worship song and a good sermon. A friend sent me this sermon recently and it spoke so much to me. Levi Lusko addresses the topic of pain and loss through the eyes of God, or the analogy he used, the eyes of a lion.  But, what I love is that he pointed out that suffering is not an obstacle to ….

How to Overcome Disappointment

We all get disappointed, right? It might be over something minor like canceled weekend plans, but other times it might be much larger like waiting four years to have children. Either way, have you been disappointed lately? I know I have on several various occasions and if I were completely honest those feelings as of lately occur monthly when I realize once again, I am still not pregnant. But, regardless of ….

Doorways, Hallways, and Gateways

This post has been in my draft folder since last October and when I heard Charlotte Gambill speak at a conference this past weekend, I was reminded to listen to the sermon (for the 10th or 11th time) again and hit submit on this post. Anyone else agree that their life is definitely not how they thought it would be? I can’t tell you how often I have asked the …. Continue Reading

Growing Weary

Anyone else weary? Anyone else tired of doing good and not reaping a harvest? If you saw my post on instagram you know I have been having a really hard time. A friend sent me this sermon in the middle of my weariness and it encouraged my heart so much. The main point of the message? Do not become weary and miss the harvest. “Let us not grow weary in well …. Continue Reading

You Are Closer Than You Think

If you are someone who is waiting on the Lord for breakthrough you could probably agree that if you knew when your wait was going to end your wait wouldn’t be as hard or painful. Whenever Colby and I are in the car, I tend to act like a child with my “How much longer?” question. “How much longer? How much further? I thought by now we would be there.” Can …. Continue Reading

Pre-Approved

What are you asking the Lord for? Are you waiting on Him to answer your prayers? Do you realize that He acts on the behalf of every prayer you have every prayed? Not only that, but your prayers are pre-approved! The story of Daniel, which is also shared in this sermon, shares a biblical explanation to this truth. In Daniel 9:2-3 he prayed, fasted, confessed, and pleaded for God to …. Continue Reading

Jealousy and Envy

Have you ever had a jealous thought? Whether you want to admit to it or not, I would think most people, including me, would respond with “yes”. It doesn’t take long in this culture to recognize that everyone around you has what you want, and on top of that, it has come very easy for them. Bill Johnson talked about the topic of jealousy and envy in a recent sermon and it …. Continue Reading

Be Unoffendable

You know those sermons that REALLY convict you? The message given is what you need to hear, but you don’t want to hear it because it makes you feel so guilty. One of our pastors recently shared a sermon on how to handle offense. We have all become offended. It’s so easy to do. Whether it’s a situation with your spouse, a co-worker, or let’s be honest even a complete stranger – we are …. Continue Reading

The Long Way Around

Whew. I love that God’s word is alive and active as it continues to minister to me. If you have been following this blog for a while you know a few things I love is good worship music and a good sermon. This sermon has spoken to my heart so much. Not only is it a good teaching, but the pastor’s story involves her long journey with infertility. I have listened to …. Continue Reading

Believe

We all have something we are believing for. Whether it’s something small or big, God wants to answer those prayers. He cares about the little details and He cares about the big details. This sermon on the topic of belief was sent to me by Melissa and it blessed me so much. In addition to doing life with a community of believers, I’m so thankful for worship music and sermons – it’s …. Continue Reading
