5 things to do when God feels far away

You know that feeling.   When your prayers seem to not go past the ceiling.  Or you feel like you can’t even pray at all.     When your mind feels dry and your heart feels a despairing loneliness you thought you’d never feel again.  When reading the Word feels flat, and worship songs ring empty.   […]

called to walk on water

We’ve all been there.  I have. Maybe you stand at the brink of the ocean now.  And you hear Jesus calling out to you.  Calling your name.  Beckoning you to trust Him.  To walk on the water. Whatever it is that you may be facing, have courage.  You are His.  And He is yours. Be blessed […]
