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
PRAISE & PRAYER PROMPT ••• When it comes to our names, very few of us had a choice in the matter. Of course, you can legally change your name. I’ve considered it. Not that I don’t like my name. It’s fine, but I go by my middle name and it would be really nice to have it in the first place position. Anyone who uses … Continue reading 6.7.19 Praise & Prayer Prompt: What’s In a Name?
PRAISE & PRAYER PROMPT ••• I am so intimidated by the book of Isaiah. It’s full of poetry and prophecy—Two things I’m not good at understanding.

PRAISE & PRAYER PROMPT ••• For many of us, it’s hard not to constantly look in the rearview mirror of life. After all, we know where we’ve been, what we’ve done, and what we wish we could change. We look back and recite to ourselves all the would’ve’s, could’ve’s, and should’ve’s. And we get nowhere with it. We know the promise of 2 Corinthians 5:17, … Continue reading 4.27.19 Praise & Prayer Prompt: Beauty From Ashes
PRAISE & PRAYER PROMPT ••• I have been waiting for this day for months! It’s the first day of Spring! I will sneeze my head off for the next month (even more than normal since I’m a chronic sneezer no matter what time of the year and I’m stubborn and won’t take allergy medicine). But I am so grateful for winter to be officially over. … Continue reading 3.20.19 Praise & Prayer Prompt: It’s Spring!
PRAISE & PRAYER PROMPT ••• Yesterday, life as we know it came to a screeching halt. I am, of course, referring to The Great Facebook Breakdown of 2019 (as it will henceforth be known — tell everyone. I want credit for coining a phrase). All over the world, frustrated people could not update Facebook or Instagram. The apps and web browser would open, but any … Continue reading 3.14.19 Praise & Prayer Prompt: A Reminder From The Great Facebook Breakdown of 2019
