When Your Hopes Are Shattered, Trust In Him

When Your Hopes Are Shattered, Trust In Him

When your hopes are shattered and all seems lost, trust in Him and know that He always brought you through to even better places, and He will do the same again. That better place is just around the corner. Don’t give up the fight, and together with Him you’ll win the victory! Compiled by H. […]

The Sun will Rise Again

The Sun will Rise Again

When you feel overwhelmed and defeated, think of the sun setting for the night behind the clouds. Though you can’t see the sun, and will not see it for some time, it’s still there. It will rise again. Hope is similar. There is always hope. At times it is hidden behind the clouds of despair, […]

Open Doors Come With a Price

Open Doors Come With a Price

First comes an open door—one that has been opened specifically for the person meant to walk through it—and next come adversaries and tests, which we know from the context of the passage can be overcome. Third comes the knowledge that Jesus had to go through His own very particular open door, facing a degree of adversity that I can’t fully imagine, much less imagine withstanding, but He did. He overcame!

The Strongest Trees

The Strongest Trees

The strongest trees grow not beneath the glass of a greenhouse, or in the protection of sheltered and shaded valleys. The stoutest timber stands on Norwegian rocks, where tempests rage, and long, hard winters reign. And is it not so with the Christian also?

Let the Heat Bring Out the Grain

Let the Heat Bring Out the Grain

“No,” he replied to my surprise, “we simply put the wood in a fire just long enough to char the wood between the grain, which is more porous and burns more quickly. Then we planed the beams lightly, leaving the deeply charred spaces between the grain black. We let the heat bring out the grain […]

Finding God While Finding His Will

Finding God While Finding His Will

God’s not up in heaven hiding His will, hoping you’ll never be able to find it. But He does play hide and seek. He doesn’t just want us to find His will, He wants us to find ‘Him’ in the process. Because if His will was in plain view, we would seek ‘it’ instead of seeking […]

The Testing of Your Faith

The Testing of Your Faith

There are challenges in your life that test your faith, and not just test it, but sometimes reach into the depths of your spirit, grab your heart and rip it out, throw it to the ground, stomp on it, beat it to a pulp, and then hold it in front of your face, saying, “Now […]

Passing the Tests of Life

Passing the Tests of Life

Life is often likened to going to school, and that’s a good analogy. God allows all sorts of things in our lives to test us, to see how we’ll react to them, to teach us lessons, and to help us grow spiritually. He’s hoping, of course, that we’ll apply ourselves, take the lessons to heart and learn from them.
