Peace Be Still

Peace Be Still

Hi friend. I don’t know what is heavy on your heart as we enter this Advent Season together, but I do know (all too well) the state of our world and the intimate struggles I have wrestled to hand over to the Lord this year. If you’re reading this, I would be willing to bet we have more in common than we have different as we reflect on our mind, heart, and love for our Father amidst our world right now.

It’s really important we start our new Peace Be Still Advent Devotional making our best attempt to sit down for a cup of coffee together. Let’s imagine we met at my favorite local coffee shop, Brew and Batter, here in Grapevine, TX for a moment.

What is burdening you? How has the Lord met you there lately? These are a few questions I’m asking myself today and would love to ask you as well.

“He rescues me unharmed from the battle waged against me, even though many oppose me.” Psalm 55:18 NIV

We get the gift of casting all of our cares on the Lord and He sustains us. He will never let the righteous fall. Psalm 55:22 ESV

So, this Advent season, we gather as a community and rest in His healing presence.

I’m sitting in my office in full surrender to our Abba this morning. Asking that He would use my fingers, as I type, to be a vessel for the words He so desperately wants us to receive this Advent season. I believe our God can use the same words to touch each of us uniquely and intimately.
Get your Peace Be Still Devotional here.

Father,
I pray this tool would be so much more than a devotional this Advent season. We know you’re patiently waiting for us to seek you. As we create space to spend intimate moments with you, I pray we would be met with the fullness of your peace and the truth of how you see us. Help us, Lord, as we pull away from the many distractions that surround us to be met with your peace and love. I pray we would clearly and directly hear from you in the pages to follow. Help us to understand your deep desire to rescue us, to receive our response of surrender, to meet with us in rich and fulfilling intimacy, and to give us a life marked by your peaceful contentment. We love you, Lord. We love you. 
Amen.

We’re too busy to seek His presence
We’re too busy to seek His presence

February 08, 2023

Oh Lord - we confess that we have it all backwards. You tell us to “seek You first” and too often, we seek you last. Help us right now in this very moment to “pause”. In this moment of stillness, help us to breathe in a fresh wind. Refresh our weary souls. Lead us by peaceful waters and renew our strength and perspective today. When we try to be more and do more today, remind us that we are already enough. Allow us to rest in that. Lord, today we surrender our busy lives and abandon the socie...

Making a difference requires us to do things differently
Making a difference requires us to do things differently

February 01, 2023

If we want to make a difference in the lives of those around us, it likely requires us to do things a little different. But we can be confident that a life of abiding in Him, and for Him, is worthy of it all. If you feel like you’re going against the grain, living counter-cultural, or doing things differently out of obedience today, stay faithful. Stay the course. Don’t overthink. Sow the seeds, be a light, and trust God with the harvest.
