Read What Inspires You

What if we didn't have to be a victim of our circumstances, no matter how terrible they might be? What if true victory was possible today, and not just in theory? Could victory be for this life and not just in heaven?
In a deeply personal journey, Samantha investigates these questions and more as she applies God-given science, psychology, and scripture to her own life. It is possible to be victorious no matter your past.

Last night I spent a lot of time thinking about Paul - arguably the greatest apostle of all time. He went from being a murderer of Christians to being one of the most zealous Christ-followers that ever lived. Before his ministry began, Jesus said to his disciple Anania...

A valley full of bones. I had a vision once of standing in such a valley. Shades of gray coated the sky and the ground. The earth was cracked, barren, hardly a rock touched the clay-like soil, and yet bones were strewn across the valley floor like discarded candy wrapp...

David may have been a man after God’s own heart, but he was a man who has an uncanny ability to give words to mine. Whether he’s shouting of God’s greatness (Psalm 35), or reassuring himself of God’s compassion (Psalm 34), David continues to remind me it’s okay to expr...

I love going into God's creation to pray. Somehow being in places relatively untouched by human hands to meet my Creator makes it easier to hear him. It feels a bit like walking into a carpenter's wood shop, or a potters wheelhouse. It's a mess, perfectly in process. W...

It's hard not to compare. When we compare, we judge. Either ourselves or those we're comparing ourselves to. We do it all the time, and yet when we compare we miss out on what God wants to do in us and through us alone.

My journey is not yours. Yours isn't mine. There a...

I don’t make New Year resolutions. I even struggle with making New Year goals. For the last five years every goal has been meticulously planned, giving more and more room for “surprises” without compromising the end goal, only to have them fall flat each time. Grad sch...

Are you feeling a little lonely this Christmas? A little disconnected from the holiday spirit? Weighed down by the responsibilities of 2018 and the impossibilities of 2019? Do the scriptures feel a little less real to your circumstances, and a little more like stories?...

Today, I took a personal day from work to just breathe in and out. To be still. To cry if I need to, or not. It's been exactly one year since my divorce was finalized. In today's age it seems divorce is as common as a stubbed toe, and holds about as much importance. As...

Being a blogger typically means you're supposed to be an expert at something. This is the whole reason you blog about anything. I've been writing weekly blogs for more than two years, each one an attempt at sharing my walk with God to encourage others in their walk wit...

This year is not last year.

I keep telling myself that as I approach the first anniversary of my separation from my husband. I admit I have experienced all the same feelings that I did around that time. Sleeplessness, irritability, nightmares, loss of appetite, and the...

The first horse I was responsible for was an Arabian with a broken leg. Beau was an older horse, probably closer to nineteen or so, and he belonged to the ministry with which I volunteer. I lived on the same property where he was boarded so I took it upon myself to muc...

"The Word is a lamp to my feet, a light on my path." - Psalm 119:105

We'd like to believe that lamp is a 500 watt LED light that extends for yards in all directions. A light that gives plenty of warning of things to come and plenty of clarity for where we need to go.

We tend to believe things about the Bible that, whether we realize it or not, cripple our faith. When we come across a scripture that’s difficult, sometimes impossible, to understand or reconcile to our reality we make a decision regarding that scripture that shoots us...

Sin is like shrapnel and removing it hurts, but it's not as bad as the pain that comes from the infection that results from ignoring it.

March 30, 2018

We all wonder if God really sees us. Does He know our pain? Is He faithful even when our circumstances are telling us He’s forgotten us?

Scripture tells us God is faithful (1 Corinthians 1:9; 1 Thessalonians 5:24). There’s not one of His children that escapes his attent...
