6.19.19 Praise & Prayer Prompt: Hearing (A Sensory Series)

PRAISE & PRAYER PROMPT ••• This is Day 3 of our week-long focus on the five senses: sight, smell, hearing, taste, and touch. Day 3–Hearing. I have some strong opinions on this sense since so many equate hearing with listening. But the sense is called hearing, so I picked a verse that uses that word… But we’ll be talking about listening too! With that said, … Continue reading 6.19.19 Praise & Prayer Prompt: Hearing (A Sensory Series)

6.18.19 Praise & Prayer Prompt: Smell (A Sensory Series)

PRAISE & PRAYER PROMPT ••• This is Day 2 of our week-long focus on the five senses: sight, smell, hearing, taste, and touch. Day 2–Smell. Perhaps the most underrated sense we have… at least until we have a cold. Our sense of smell is important though… It keeps us safe by making us aware of smoke or gas, helps us identify foods that are good … Continue reading 6.18.19 Praise & Prayer Prompt: Smell (A Sensory Series)

6.17.19 PRAISE & PRAYER PROMPT: Sight (A Sensory Series)

PRAISE & PRAYER PROMPT ••• Last week, I accidentally wrote a three-part series. This time, it’s on purpose. This one has been on my mind for several weeks. We’re going to spend five days on the senses: sight, smell, hearing, taste, and touch. But of course, we’ll talk about them from a faith-based perspective. Day 1–Sight. We have two different types of vision. The physical … Continue reading 6.17.19 PRAISE & PRAYER PROMPT: Sight (A Sensory Series)

6.16.19 Praise & Prayer Prompt: Father’s Day

PRAISE & PRAYER PROMPT ••• Y’all have heard me say this before, but whenever a holiday comes around, my inner-rebel does not want to write about it. It feels like I’m being a conformist. But as we celebrate earthly fathers today, it’s also an opportunity to reflect on the ultimate father—our Heavenly Father. Psalm 103:13 says, “As a father shows compassion to his children, so … Continue reading 6.16.19 Praise & Prayer Prompt: Father’s Day

6.15.19 Praise & Prayer Prompt: Repentance

PRAISE & PRAYER PROMPT ••• I really didn’t intend to turn this into a series, but that seems to have happened. We’ve talked about forgiveness, forgetting, and today, let’s talk about repentance. It may seem I’ve gone out of order here but just as I hadn’t planned to write a series, I think this order may be exactly right. We need repentance in order to … Continue reading 6.15.19 Praise & Prayer Prompt: Repentance

6.14.19 Praise & Prayer Prompt: Forgetting

PRAISE & PRAYER PROMPT ••• Yesterday, we talked about “forgive” and the extraordinary way Jesus shows forgiveness through His love, grace, and mercy. Today, we’re going to talk about forgetting. As I’ve pondered forgiveness this year, I’ve thought about the concept of “forgive and forget,” which isn’t Biblical. Forgetting isn’t part of Scripture and it’s not something we are capable of. But there’s a difference … Continue reading 6.14.19 Praise & Prayer Prompt: Forgetting

6.13.19 Praise & Prayer Prompt: Forgiveness

PRAISE & PRAYER PROMPT ••• Back in January, I shared that my word of the year was “forgive.” I confess I haven’t studied it as well as I should, but at least once a week, I do think about it. A few days ago, I was thinking of the words Jesus spoke as He hung on the cross. “Father, forgive them, for they know not … Continue reading 6.13.19 Praise & Prayer Prompt: Forgiveness
