Chapter 9 (Beloved)

Photo Credit Beloved :  greatly loved; dear to the heart. When God led me to this word and verse today, it dawned on me that there is a reason God calls us His be-loved. It reminds me that I don’t have to “do” anything to be loved — by Him. I just need to know […]

Praying God’s Promises

Praying God’s promises — it’s changed me.

Ending the “I’m Fine” Masquerade

This week, I think we’ve all come to realize we’re not the only ones who find it hard to let people know how we’re really doing. As I shared this week in Chapter 2, sometimes I think we tell people we’re fine even when we’re not, because we want to be. Or we hope that […]

Letting God Fill the Empty Places in Our Hearts

In chapter 3, I share how “our hearts leak and will always end up empty when we find our worth in anything but who we are in Christ. Our value is not measured by what others think of us—but we surely live like it is, don’t we? It’s almost as though we wake up every […]

(Week 4) Hope

“When our questions make us doubt God’s heart, our pain can lead to bitterness and bondage. Yet in the security of our relationship with Christ, God wants us to ask the hard questions and look for answers that usher us into the depths of His redeeming love. He wants us to live in the promise […]

Finding Hope for Our Future

“We can trust God’s plans as we realize that His story is being written into ours.

Don’t Throw Away Your Confidence

In chapter 5,  we talk about Gideon who, like us, doubted his strength and abilities. When God called him to defeat his enemy’s immediately Gideon’s insecurities started shouting excuses, listing all his inadequacies.

Your Heart Is Spoken For

Chosen…I love that word. I don’t know a heart that doesn’t long to be chosen?
