To enjoy and thrive in your walk with God, you will NEED to give time to His Word. If not, you do not stand a chance against the enemy, nor do you have a chance against sin and your flesh. To neglect it because you are too busy is to deny God’s most amazing gift of grace. This challenge to you to spend time in God’s Word is not some kind of legalistic to do list, it is actually LIFE to you. Pray that God would give you a hunger and thirst for it.Read More

Jane, for instance, will not sail into her retirement years crocheting and sewing for her grandchildren, as she’d thought she would. Needlework and crafting gave her a great deal of pleasure and satisfaction, and in some ways were a part of her identity. Dealing with chronic pain is, in this sense, like a death: The person you thought you were; the person you planned to be, at least in this sense, has died. Counselees with chronic pain or disability often wrestle with the question, “Who am I now? Now that I can’t do the things that I’m most known for doing, who am I, and what purpose do I serve now? “Read More
