I’m Tired of Trying to Be Strong
Are you tired of acting like everything is okay? Feeling pressured to be strong and look the part? In the end, it’s in our weakness that Jesus best demonstrates his strength.
Dec 09, 2019
What Happened to My Passion?
Passion can be an incredible tool when used the right way. But, how do I navigate life when it feels like I've lost my passion?

Right With God
What does it mean to be right with God? How are we able to rely on his plan within the midst of our worst conditions?
Nov 14, 2019
You’re Always Right
We are accepted, justified, and welcomed by Jesus. Why work to earn His love, when Jesus is already for us and waiting to catch our attention.
Nov 07, 2019
I'm Thirsty

It can be easy to look for influence and affirmation in different places, but where are we looking for Jesus?

I'm Anxious - Pt. 6
How can we minimize our anxiety and live a life of faith, courage, and freedom?
Oct 24, 2019
I'm Anxious - Pt. 5
Jesus wants to give us a life free of emotional anxiety and fear. His overwhelming peace conquers all anxieties in every season of life. He has prepared a life of unconditional and endless love for us.

I’m Anxious - Pt. 4
Life can be overwhelmed with the fear of the unknown. The pressure of defeating, overcoming, and conquering anxiety can be difficult to navigate. But at what point will God fix my anxiety?
Oct 10, 2019
I’m Anxious - Pt. 3
Feeling overwhelmed or afraid of what the future holds? Giving anxiety and fear more power than we should? Scripture says that it’s in our weaknesses where God’s strength is perfected. Although life has its detours, Jesus is constantly rerouting.
Oct 03, 2019
I'm Anxious Pt. 2
Are you tired of fear and anxiety playing a significant role in your life? Jesus wants to take the anxiety and worry at the center of our lives and replace it with him.
Oct 03, 2019
I'm Anxious
Our anxiety does not come from thinking about the future, but from wanting to control it. Imagine if we gave up control of our fears and anxiety to Jesus.
Sep 23, 2019
Mean Christians
Have you ever questioned the tone of your voice? At times it may feel like we’re saying one thing, but to others it sends a different message. It’s important to remind ourselves, "How are we representing Jesus to a world of broken and hurting people?"
Sep 05, 2019
Cycle of Pain Pt. 5
What if we stopped trying to save ourselves and fixed our attention to the one who actually can?
Aug 29, 2019
Cycle of Pain Pt. 4
What if the cycle of pain's purpose was to leave us with nothing but God? Jesus wants to take on our failure, pain, and burdens. In the middle of life's craziest storms, he is by our side.
Aug 22, 2019
Cycle of Pain Pt. 3
Can there be hope in the midst of pain? How can I justify trusting God when I feel trapped in a cycle of failure and insecurity? In the end, the narrative of Jesus is simple. His love and forgiveness will never abandon us.
Aug 15, 2019
Cycle of Pain - Part 2
We all experience pain. Just like Leah in the Bible, when pain comes, we all want to be seen, heard, and connected. God sees us. He hears us. We’re connected to him, and we can find comfort in praising him.
Aug 08, 2019

Wrestle Until You Win
Have you ever felt rejected? Forgotten? Isolated? No matter how alone we may feel, God uses our isolation for transformation.
Jul 25, 2019
You’ll Never Know Unless You Go.
The leading cause of failure is mismanaged success and the leading cause of success is well-managed failure. We’ve got God on our side - so what do we have to lose? It’s time to go! Make something happen!
Jul 18, 2019
What About Me
Life isn’t easy and to be honest, challenging seasons are ahead. But, sometimes the greatest hurdle is accepting that God is good and wants the best for us. During the midst of tragedy and pain, can we believe and rely on God?
Jul 11, 2019
Starts & Ends
Life comes with burdens. Obstacles and failures are inevitable. At times we may feel weary and defeated, but God has made provision for us in this current season. No matter the situation, God loves us and will see us through.

It Doesn’t Really Matter
What matters in life? Is it what we achieve or who we become? What if we spent less time on the meaningless and fleeting aspects of life and more on what really matters.
Jun 13, 2019
I Think About Money a Lot
When it comes to our resources, where do we put our confidence? Can we trust that our decision is the best decision? If there is one thing we can all agree upon, we think about money a lot.
Jun 06, 2019
It’s Not Fair
Life isn’t fair? Thank God! What if we lived with a perspective that recognized God’s love when we least deserved it?
May 30, 2019
I’m Not Okay
Are you not okay? That’s okay. Some things in life aren’t a quick fix. Do you feel like escaping, do you feel alone, do you feel betrayed? Jesus know’s what we’re going through. The same Jesus that went through the pain, is the same Jesus who wants to walk us through it.
May 24, 2019
