No matter where we are or what we lack God’s love for us is steadfast

God’s Promise - When I need assurance that God loves me 

Recently I visited my great-aunt/Nana, and found this tiny (literally fit in the center of your palm) Bible that read “The Tiny Bible Promises”. 
I gently asked her if I could have it, and she responded (as she always does) “You can have anything in this house, including me.” She is the sweetest. She will never know the impact of the tiny gift she gave me. 

One of the powerful nuggets I have taken from this Tiny Bible of God’s unfailing promises is that no matter where we are, who we are, what we lack, what we desire to accomplish… God’s love for us is steadfast. It remains. 

Being human, we often lose sight of how much we are loved by our Savior. 
When we need assurance that God loves us, The Tiny Bible Promises refers to the book of Psalms and Romans for gentle reminders: 

“For you, O Lord, are good and forgiving, abounding in steadfast love to all who call upon you.” Psalm 86:5 ESV

“The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.” Psalm 103:8 ESV

“For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his steadfast love toward those who fear him; as far as the east is from the west, so far does he remove our transgressions from us.” Psalm 103: 11-12 ESV

“But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8 ESV


God Almighty loves you! Bask in that!

Walking Through The Valley
Walking Through The Valley

October 05, 2022

There’s something powerful about the view from a mountaintop. It’s something we hope for, and desire to see…especially in seasons of walking into a valley. We all have valleys; some, may have just been overcome…others, may have just begun.A valley is a place, a journey, that at times fills us with complete uncertainty. But it’s also a space, and if you’re willing - an open invitation, for The Holy Spirit to heal you, to redeem you, and to set you free. “Even though I walk through the darkest ...

How do we respond to the nearness of God?
How do we respond to the nearness of God?

August 24, 2022

How do we respond to the nearness of God? Sometimes, I think we fear that He is all knowing, aware of our every shortcoming. Believing we are far too broken to be recipients of His grace and love. It can be very overwhelming to be human and become easily overwhelmed, frustrated and sad. Our flesh sometimes leads us to respond in ways we are not proud of and ways that do not reflect our Father. God's great desire for us is that we would recognize our need for Him. Without awareness of our weak...
