Day 27: Choose Joy

Earlier this year, as I sought the Lord’s guidance regarding the months ahead, a theme emerged that had me confused. He quietly spoke to me about joy and that I should expect it. I was coming out of a barren wasteland, a season of heavy rebuke, and was slowly being built back up again… but […]

Day 26: Running a Marathon

Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy that was set […]

Day 23: Sleep

Unless the Lord builds the house, They labour in vain who build it.Unless the Lord guards the city,The watchman stays awake in vain.It is vain for you rise up early,To sit up late,To eat the bread of sorrows.For so He gives His beloved sleep.

Day 19: Anchored In Hope

Hebrews 6:19 Hope is a word so often thrown around in our society. I hope you have a great day. I hope my flight comes on time. I hope I studied enough for this test. How we see hope in these ways, we aren’t seeing it as a certainty, as unwavering, as an anchor. But […]
