How About Turning New Year’s Resolutions Upside Down?

Instead of listing what we plan to achieve in 2020, why not ask God to show us how to receive.

susanalexanderyates.com I’ve never enjoyed making New Year’s resolutions. It just feels like making a list of things I’m going to fail at doing. Rarely do I see them through. Mostly I try for a few weeks and then either quit trying or forget them. Or they get set aside in the tyranny of the urgent. It ... Read More a...

What Does God Think of Women?

How we women and men in the church regard ourselves as women and men and how we treat one another as women and men has untold potential to spread the life-giving aroma of our savior to the people around us.

thegospelcoalition.org When it comes to hard questions on women and God, the Bible brims reliable, honest, grace-filled answers.


“In the moments when God may seem farthest from you, unbeknownst to you, God may be laying the foundations for the greatest display of His faithfulness to you. You say, ‘How do you know this?’ And the answer is because this is the gospel.” // David Platt

The Search For Life - Wednesday's Word

This earth can never be our Savior.

mailchi.mp The answer is simple. It’s found throughout the Word of God, particularly in the book of Ecclesiastes, and we verify its truth every day with our desires, words, actions, and purchases: we are searching for life.

How about it?

Matthew 6:20 // Lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. (ESV)

How to Fight Anger in Motherhood

The challenges of motherhood often bring us to our knees. But what a wonderful place to be!

thegospelcoalition.org When I punish or control my kids with harsh words, it’s not a bad day. It’s not a mom fail. It’s not a joke. It’s sin.

"In Jesus the performance pendulum stops — both the pride of success and the despair of failure are absorbed by grace." (Melissa Kruger)

2 Corinthians 12:9 // But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me (ESV)

How The Ten Commandments Work - Wednesday's Word

In Christ we find the grace we need to fight the worship war.

Made For Another World - Wednesday's Word

Come Lord Jesus.

mailchi.mp But I must say more. Otherwise, our discussion of awe would have a glaring and significant omission. Here’s the missing piece: our quest for awe requires a destination.

Kelly Minter

Joseph served right where he was at, whether in prison or palace. It certainly seems easier to serve when life is going well, but it can be especially challenging when we’re under stress or in pain. Surprisingly, when we choose to serve others in our difficult seasons we get the focus off of our pain, we find joy in the connection with others, and ultimately we identify with Jesus, the most supreme Servant who has ever lived.

Paul David Tripp

Romans 8:38-39


Don’t Forfeit Your Soul - Wednesday's Word

Paul David Tripp

The only hope,
the only help,
the only rescue,
the only healing,
the only solace,
the only balm,
the only redemption,
the only restoration
for a broken,
morally fallen,
dark, and dangerous
isn’t found in
political solution,
psychological insight,
or personal reformation,
but in the willing
and resurrection
of a God-man Redeemer.
No idea can liberate,
no power can save,
no institution can redeem,
or recreate
what sin has destroyed.
So a Son had to come.
Son of God.
Son of Man.
The Creator
came to recreate.
The Savior came to be
the sacrifice.
The blessed one
came to suffer,
and in suffering
to bless the world with hope,
and restoration.
The cost of it all was
his life.
It was his birth mission,
his resurrection victory.
History marched toward his coming;
there was no other way.

As We Forgive Our Debtors - Wednesday's Word

Forgiveness has no limits!

mailchi.mp How is it possible that we who have been blessed with eternal forgiveness can be so regularly unforgiving to those around us?

God is indeed good.

And Sarai said to Abram, “Behold now, the Lord has prevented me...”

I stopped right there in my Bible reading, hearing something all too familiar. Sarai’s sentiment is one I may not say out loud but certainly have believed: “God doesn’t always keep his promises. He doesn’t always know what he’s doing.”

For Sarai, it was children. She believed God was preventing her from having a baby—a baby God had explicitly promised would come. So she took over for God, mapping out a surefire plan, forcing the situation, dead set on getting what she wanted, how she wanted it, and precisely when she wanted it.

For me, it’s not children. For me, well, I could show you a long list of things I’ve believed God has prevented me from getting, things I’ve believed I’ve needed and others that I’ve felt I deserved.

I see how laughable Sarai’s bitter lament is, only because I know her whole story. I know that Isaac will soon be on his way, and Jacob after that, and then an entire nation built from the fruit of Sarai’s womb.

I do not, however, see what’s funny about my own unmet longings, not one single bit. I can’t see ahead to know what will become of me, so I consistently hedge my bets and make my self-reliant plans, believing I can stay one step ahead of any of God’s “preventing.”

But all along Sarai’s story, and all along mine and yours, is a repeated phrase: “I will.” GOD WILL. He WILL keep his promises to his people, and no human wisdom, misguided plan, or flagrant sin can thwart him.

So whatever “prevention” we think God is doing, he’s really only preventing us from anything less than his perfect plan and his perfect promises. And sometimes He’s preventing us from ourselves. Come trust him with me, dear one, for he is GOOD.

Engage In Conflict - Wednesday's Word

If you live and interact with other sinners, you will experience conflict.

mailchi.mp Conflict shouldn’t scare you or be avoided like the plague. In fact, conflict can be very good. It’s a significant way that God works in our lives, and the Bible is a book about God entering into conflict to save us.

How To Be An Encourager - Wednesday's Word

Encourage others with the presence, promises, and potential of Christ.

mailchi.mp As we walk through life in a broken world, encouragement is an essential skill. Are you willing and equipped to do this in the lives of others?

Kelly Minter

During Joseph’s day, nothing could have seemed more out of God’s will than a voyage to Egypt that would prove permanent. God had promised His people the land of Canaan, and Egypt didn’t fit into this plan—at least not from a human perspective. What deeply moved me about Joseph’s story was watching God dwell with him in places no one thought God would or could dwell in: a pit, a pagan land, a dungeon. But also in a palace. Oh the places God will go with us when we’re surrendered to Him.
