Learning From a Great Leader

Who is the greatest leader you've ever followed? Why did you choose that person? Nehemiah was pretty great. He was unafraid to call people out, but he led with his actions as well as his words. He was consistent and he was faithful. Each of us has a position of leadership - even if just … Continue reading Learning From a Great Leader

I’ll Sing Once More

I can’t believe that this week we will be reading the last three psalms. We started reading on April 13 – right at the beginning of the pandemic lockdown. And we’re ending as (hopefully) things are starting the slow crawl to getting back to normal.  I’ve been thinking about it and maybe this was exactly … Continue reading I’ll Sing Once More

Longing for Normalcy

Though notably disturbing, Psalm 137 is quite relatable. No, not verse 9, but the sentiment behind longing for what used to be. The Israelites had been in exile, where they stayed for 70 years. They missed their homes, their traditions, and their regular way of life. For us it hasn't even been 7 months and … Continue reading Longing for Normalcy

Especially in today’s overstimulated, always-striving-for-bigger-and-better world. But maybe these past five months have nudged us (possibly involuntarily) in that direction. When our lives (or the whole world) are in turmoil, humans … Continue reading In His Word I Put My Hope

It reminds us how easy it is to trust in things we can see and touch more than we trust in God. I'm ashamed to admit how often I find myself doing that. When faced with a tough decision I will ask a friend, read a … Continue reading Who can you trust?

Praise In Place Of Murmur (and a PSA)

*PSA - this week we will read Psalm 110 and it's really important. This psalm is both royal (it talks about the Israelite king) and messianic (it talks about the coming messiah). It is also the most quoted and alluded to psalm in the New Testament (27 times), which means we should really pay attention! … Continue reading Praise In Place Of Murmur (and a PSA)

We Were Made to Praise

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q5m09rqOoxE There are so many ways to praise God, the important thing is simply that we do it. If you don't like the video above, find a different song or video you like and take a few minutes to praise our God who is worthy of all our thanks and praise. July 13: Psalm 92 … Continue reading We Were Made to Praise
