Come Out of Hiding

We may not think that we are hiding. We might even reason that we are taking the higher road in order to avoid the chaos and the drama. But do you ever find yourself afraid to share your ideas, opinions, beliefs or political views? Do you find yourself keeping quiet in order to protect yourself from retaliation or rejection? Are you superficially conforming to the opinions of others in the workplace to protect your job security or to be accepted within your social networks? Are you fearful of being stereotyped because of the color of your skin, your ethnic background, or your generational label? Do you expect to be shut down, held back, or forced to be choose sides when your desire is to unite?

Taking Care of the Eyes of Your Heart

Winter snowstorm or flowers and sunshine I was gently reminded how many times true refreshment begins from the inside out. Thanks to God’s grace working in my life, internal changes occurred and created a new lens through which to perceive that wintery situation. Instead of seeing the coldness, I was able to see beauty. Instead of feeling discomfort, I was able to feel warmth and peace.

Ghost

Whether you’re in a season of calm right now or a season of uncertainty, we hope this song reminds you of the source of your peace. Circumstances can change in an instant, but God’s love for you never fails. Trust in Him! Don’t lean on your own understanding. In all your ways, acknowledge Him, and He will make your steps secure. After all, even water and wind submit to His voice. Your storm is no match for our Maker.

Revisiting the Sounds of Trust

“Just trust the Lord” is a phrase I’ve probably heard for most of my life. However, it’s also been a phrase that I’ve heard so often the words had unknowingly become almost cliché in certain situations. So when I was journaling with the Lord several weeks back and scribbled on to the pages “trust me” (coming from God to me) I found myself slightly dissatisfied. It almost didn’t seem like a “real answer” in my brain at that moment, more like spiritual jargon. Trust became a repeated theme popping up frequently, however. When I prayed about a next blog topic a couple weeks later and the immediate word that Holy Spirit gave was “trust” I knew it was something He was intent on me pressing into.

The Pains of Growth

"Mom, my shoes are too small! My feet hurt! My toes are squished." Have you ever been involved in or overheard a conversation sounding similar to this? This came to my mind recently while thinking about seasons of growth in life. Sometimes the "shoes" all the...

Helping Children with Dreams & Nightmares

Do you kids struggle with nightmares? What if we could teach them how powerful they are so that they could literally “re-script” their dreams in power and Holy Spirit authority? Does your child dream often? Could the Lord be speaking to them in the stillness of their sleep? You can help them to begin to recognize when and what God is sharing with them and how they can respond just like Samuel as He heard the Lord call his name in the night (see 1 Samuel 3). Dr. Sandie Freed shares powerful insight for parents to help their kids both hear from God and discover their inner “superhero” as they give their scary dreams a new script. PS: Helpful for grown up dreamers too!

As We Praise

The song “As We Praise” began with one simple desire: we wanted to write a song that we could lead in our local church. We wanted it to represent our church culture and the core values at our roots—namely, covenant, influence, and bravery.

Sibling Rivalry

This Summer, we sat down with our friends, Jerome and Machelle Joseph. We expected to receive significant truths from this outstanding couple (we always do!), but we were absolutely blown away by the revelation they shared on a spiritual dynamic of "sibling rivalry."

Validation, Compliments & Flattery

Validation sees and initiates worth to the core identity of another person. It is generated from the purity of their heart to your heart! It is the overflow of a soul who knows its own worth. You are a treasure—period. All that you do is celebrated and honored, but never above who you are! Validation is selfless, unconditional, and mature. It is unguarded, authentic, and untainted by personal agendas. It lays a healthy foundation that allows the innocent exchange of life. It is from this place of value that strong relationships and partnerships can be forged.
