You Are Chosen

I wrote a quick prayer about my frustration with being chosen almost six months ago. Since then I’ve been going through a major purge—breaking up with thoughts and people that have been roadblocks to my peace and closeness with God. It’s forced me to really examine what I’ve been clinging to and how that has hardened my heart to God, whether I meant for it to or not.   I’ve found that by hardening myself, I was actually trying to ignore…

Monthly Study: Mastering Forgiveness

Monthly Study: Are You Truly Living?

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve said, “If this were to just happen everything would be fine,” or “If I hadn’t done that, I wouldn’t have wasted all this time, and I would be here.” More often than not, in the same breath, I was asking God to reveal in me a new “purpose,” or to show me where I was going to be, and what I would be doing so I could bring glory to His kingdom—knowing…
