Book Review: This Life I Live

Book Review: This Life I Live

In order for me to be with a great woman, I was gonna have to learn to be a great man first. Rory Feek’s book This Life I Live is, simply put, a love story. But it is not only his love story with his wife Joey but also his love story with God. Before reading this book, I didn’t know much about Joey and Rory. I had seen a few episodes of Can You Duet?, and articles had crossed my…

Spiritual Battleground

Spiritual Battleground

I’ve been reluctant to post this blog for several reasons. First, it will not be complete. No matter how long it is or how much I say, it will not be the end of the journey where the proof is in the pudding.

Trust Him

When You don’t move the mountains I’m needing You to move; when You don’t part the waters I wish I could walk through; when You don’t give the answers as I cry out to You; I will trust, I will trust, I will trust in You — Lauren Daigle When you beg God for healing, for financial relief, for a spouse, for children, for direction in your life, and He doesn’t answer by giving you what you desire, do you…

Turn Your Worry into a Prayer

Turn Your Worry into a Prayer

“Have you ever stopped to think that when we worry we doubt God’s abilities and trust in our own?” Lysa TerKeurst Matthew 6:8 tells us that the Father knows what we need before we ask for it. This is not a license to neglect prayer, but it is a springboard for our prayers. We don’t need to offer suggestions or solutions because God already knows what we need right here, right now. Our goal is to get on the same…
