Simple Obedience

“If you love me, you will keep my commandments.” (John 14:15, ESV) “Blessed are they that keep his testimonies, and that seek him with the whole heart.” (Psa 119:2, KJV) I’ve been thinking a lot about obedience these past few days.

From the Heart

Eph 6:1-9   Do you ever have one of those moments, when you’re reading Scripture, that you feel so convicted yet so encouraged by the words in front of you?  Like they were meant just for you where you are right now?

Why I can say… Hello Morning!

“Satisfy us in the morning with your steadfast love, that we may rejoice and be glad all our days.” (Psa 90:14, ESV) ******** Almost a year ago, the Lord led me to Hello Mornings. I was introduced to the Hello Mornings Challenge through a dear friend and fell in love with the concept immediately.  I … Continue reading
