From Our Hearts

Getting Through Difficult Days

Getting Through Difficult Days

Many occurrences in life fall simultaneously into the glad/sad category, bringing forth both emotions at once. Knowing that something can be both bitter and sweet can help us in getting through difficult days. 

When You're "Done"

When You're "Done"
Are you enduring a time of suffering? Are you simply done with dealing with troubles? Every one of us will face times of trial and loss.  But through our trials, we can experience a reaffirmation of our faith.

Success Starts Here ...

Success Starts Here ...
Would you be encouraged to know that God addresses success in the Bible? He does! In fact, He gives us a step-by-step plan for arriving at true success in our lives.

Cultivating A Heart Committed to Prayer

Cultivating A Heart Committed to Prayer
Talking with God daily is important to building a deeper relationship with Him. Perhaps you, like me, have had many stops and starts on the way to a vibrant prayer life. 

You Will Have Trouble

You Will Have Trouble
“She has the patience of Job.” It seems that most people have heard of Job. That may be because he suffered so greatly. One day, in the span of a few hours, his children died and he lost all his wealth, everything he had.

Dealing with Gossip

Dealing with Gossip
It’s a horrible fact: Everyone has been hurt by gossip or slander. No one is immune from the searing pain brought about by false or damaging information. I know I’ve been on the receiving end of such pain and damage. And I’m ashamed to say I’ve been the deliverer of it too. You’ve probably experienced both ends of gossip as well.

Finding Time for a Quiet Time

Finding Time for a Quiet Time
Lunch out with friends…or quiet time with your Bible? Hmm. Sometimes this choice is really hard, isn’t it?

The Best Way to Make a Decision

The Best Way to Make a Decision
With shaking hands and a pained heart, I hit the end icon on my cell phone and concluded a life-shattering and life-changing call. One of my brothers had just given me the news that our dad, at age 95, had been diagnosed with terminal cancer and would need nursing care for the final days of his life.

Stop Complaining

Stop Complaining
We all make choices in what we do with our day, our thoughts, and our words. A favorite verse of mine ends with the words, “Charm is deceitful and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the Lord, she shall be praised” (Proverbs 31:30 NASB). I don’t want to be robbed of even one of God’s riches by not taking time to let Him invade my life. The bottom line? I want to be a woman after God’s own heart!

What to Do about Worry

What to Do about Worry
I’m a person who used to sleep with my pillow under my stomach to comfort my bleeding ulcer instead of sleeping with the pillow under my head. Finally I acknowledged that worry is a terrible sin… and a terrible habit. As I read my Bible and grew as a Christian, I couldn’t help but notice there are so many commands in the Bible telling God’s followers not to worry!

I Will Give You Rest

I Will Give You Rest
If your life is uncertain and filled with difficulties, be encouraged! God is not asking you to handle your entire life all at once. More often than not, your what-if imaginings about the future turn out altogether differently. Instead of being anxious, choose to concentrate on today. With God’s strength and grace, you will make it.

How to Slow Down - Teen Tuesday

How to Slow Down - Teen Tuesday
Have you ever felt nervous…fidgety…on edge… cranky? And even though you didn’t want to act the way you were, you kept on stomping through your day, lashing out at everybody who crossed your path? Well, take heart! You’re not alone!
