How to Make Waves in Life: Stepping into New Seasons

“If you don’t dive in, you’re not going to make any waves.” ~Somebody Awesome Let’s be honest, basking in the presence of something beautiful is a wonderful thing, but being fully submerged within it can be so much more fulfilling and exhilarating. It’s similar to being at the pool, or the ocean on a hot summer’s day. You’re never truly refreshed until you have taken the dive in! The same is true for us and any advancement that we would like to have in life. Talking about an idea or a plan is a wonderful thing, but until you take a dive and actually start implementing the things you are talking about, you are only basking in its beauty. “Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in Him.” ~PSALM 34:8 Consider that this truth is relevant in every area of our lives, especially in our walks with Christ. The deeper we go in Him the sweeter we find Him to be, the more we realize how awesome and …

Stepping Forward in Faith: Crushed in the Gaps

There are times in our faith-walk that we feel like a sudden cool breeze and darkness has fallen upon our path. And somewhere in the midst of that, in the midst of us grappling to hold tightly to the truth in faith in the face of panic that tries to take up residence, we feel like Christ has abandoned us.

Have you felt this before? If so, know you are not alone. Recently I asked the Lord about this feeling as I stood in the dark fog of my own faith-walk, questioning the feeling that He had withdrawn from me, and what He showed me made me love Him all the more, but also reminded me that He is always at work in us for our good because He loves …

When Jesus Waits to Save You: by Bri Lassiter

I relate so much to the story of Mary, Martha, and Lazarus. There are so many explosive feelings and questions in it. It’s just real life and I feel like I’ve lived this story many times in one way or another. Just put yourself in the story and you’ll probably be able to relate too. Can you imagine being besties with Jesus and having Him chill at your house? You would think that nothing bad could happen to you when the Savior of the world is your homie. You’re definitely not gonna die or anything right? Wrong! Imagine you’re Mary and Martha. Your brother gets sick and so if you’re buds with someone who heals sick people obviously you’re going to call Him first, He’ll do His healing thing and it’ll be great. But you call Him and He doesn’t come. And you wait and wait and your loved one gets sicker and sicker. And then there’s the dying part. Dying sucks you know. Everyone pretty much hates that. Your brother Lazarus dies because Jesus …
