Fear Not

Fear Not . . .

“Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.” Isaiah 41:10

Dear friend, while God did not promise us a trouble free life, He did promise us His presence. Take heart in that simple truth and talk to Him like He’s your closest friend. He’s right beside you holding out His hand. Take hold. He has promised to help you.

Are You in Pain? [Word of the Day]

Dear friend, are you in pain, emotionally or physically?

Be encouraged. Wait on the Lord…

“Since ancient times no one has heard,
no ear has perceived,
no eye has seen any God besides you,
who acts on behalf of those who wait for him.”

May God grant us the strength and patience to wait on Him, and to believe and trust that all our tests and trials are working something in us (something good!) that is far greater than we could ever imagine!

Blessings dear friends! “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him” (Romans 15:13).

Hope be with you!

God satisfies our needs

The longing to be filled and satisfied with good things in life and extract joy from those things is common to us all. Yet life is tough, and very often those “things” do not fully satisfy, or if they do, it’s only for a season. And we are left wanting, as if drinking water and yet never feeling quenched. If you find yourself lacking deep within your soul and yearning for more, yet unsure what that “more” is, please be encouraged and possibly challenged by these words I sensed God speaking to my heart while reading Psalm 81.  Continue reading “Happiness Tips for Troubled Hearts #4 [Finding Satisfaction in God Alone]”

Happiness Tips for Troubled Hearts #3 [What does praising God have to do with chronic pain?]


A prayer for chronic pain from Psalm 63

Yet praise and worship is absolutely essential to our happiness and ability to press on when dealing with chronic pain.

Happiness Tip for Troubled hearts #3, Praise God at all times, especially when in pain. Praise acts like a healing balm, reviving weary bones, calming troubled hearts, and renewing the anxious mind. Praise takes the focus off the pain, and places it on God, the source of our healing, help, and hope!

The Key to a Happy New Year

In Your presence is fullness of joy

You will make known to me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; In Your right hand there are pleasures forever.—Psalm 16:11

It’s a rather bold statement to make, claiming to have “the key” to a happy new year. But as I turn the page on 2017, I feel a certain boldness rise within me . . .

This boldness did not result from any sort of incredible achievements, pride, or having arrived at some sort of “knowing,” rather it’s a boldness birthed in brokenness. Continue reading “The Key to a Happy New Year”
