A Prayer For Your Family

But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord. Joshua 24:15 ESV Father God, I’m here, on behalf of my family. Be near God. Show us how to love each other well. May we encourage one another Lord. Dwell amongst us. Be with us in the morning, in the evening. Grant us love,…

A Prayer for a Heavy Heart

Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30 ESV Father God, today my heart feels heavy. I feel…

A Prayer for the Racing Mind

So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into…

Takeaway Tuesdays: Romans 15:13

If you are feeling a little low on hope (don’t we all go through these moments, or even seasons?!) let me encourage you: God is filled with hope. He also is a lover of joy and peace. Whatever circumstance you find yourself in today, I want to let you know that if you are feeling…

Takeaway Tuesdays: Lamentations 2:19

The month of August is just about coming to a close. It’s been a pleasant month here in the valley in Oregon—not too many overly hot days. I’ve been enjoying the fun summer months. Despite all the glorious attributes of summer, I still have many people in my life walking through seasons of suffering. Suffering…

Takeaway Tuesdays: Proverbs 31:25

Hi friends! It’s hard to believe that the year is half over! I am squeaking in this post late on the last Tuesday in June. What has God been teaching you? Showing you? Do you feel closer to Him, with 6 months of 2019 under your belt? I know that 6 months of The Bible…

Takeaway Tuesdays: Psalm 139:1-6

I’m squeezing in at the last moment of May to share this free print with you my friends. I loved reading this Psalm the other night. I was challenged to memorize it when I was in high school, and these verses tend to sink in and marinate when I read them. God knows all the…

Takeaway Tuesdays: Joshua 1:8

I’m currently on Spring Break, meaning this post is a day late! It’s really Wednesday, not Tuesday. But hopefully you won’t mind this free print being a day late. I’m still really enjoying The Bible Recap podcast and reading along through the Old Testament. I’m fully surprised and encouraged at the breadth and depth of…

Takeaway Tuesdays: Leviticus 19:17-18

As I shared last month, I am working my way chronologically through the Bible using The Bible Recap as a guide. Leviticus just wrapped up this month. I used to dread reading through this Old Testament book. It seemed so irrelevant to today. In the past, I’d read it and pretty much skim the entire…

Takeaway Tuesdays: Genesis 30:22

At the beginning of 2019 quite a few of my friends, including my community group at church, embarked on the daily journey of reading our way through the Bible in a year. We are following The Bible Recap‘s podcast and Scripture reading plan, created by Tara-Leigh Cobble. I’ve read through the Bible several times before,…
