What happens when a woman steps in? Throughout scripture, we see several women who influenced the lives of men—leaders God had chosen and put in place to lead and protect families, groups and nations—both negatively and positively. While some turned these men's hearts away from God...

The type of faith you need
Anybody ever suffer from heartburn or indigestion? It's been said that one of the natural remedies for it is to have a teaspoon of mustard which helps to neutralize the acid in your stomach. I remembered this the other night when I woke up with horrible indigestion and it seemed to help. Standing there in my kitchen, with the refrigerator door open as my only source of light, I grabbed a teaspoon and proceeded to add some mustard to it and stick it in my mouth. For anyone who has experienced heartburn, you know how desperately you want relief from the uncomfortable feeling. After I digested some of it, I heard the Holy Spirit ever so gently tell me to turn over the bottle and look at the ingredients. As I was turning the bottle of mustard over to read the ingredients, I laughed out loud to myself. The third ingredient in my bottle of mustard was mustard seed. This may not seem funny at first, but come along on this ride as I hope to encourage you.
Loved to the end
Today is what some consider Holy Thursday, the night before Jesus died, or rather, willingly gave up His life for this entire world. I've been pondering this for a while, as I sat down to type this post. I found myself wondering what He was feeling, what He was thinking, and what was going on in His mind, knowing the horrific death He would soon face. Put yourself in His shoes for a moment. How would you feel and what would you be doing if you knew this was your last night on earth?

I've been thinking about death a lot in the last year. Definitely not trying to be morbid, but it has definitely been on my mind heavily, but not in a scary or fearful kind of way. I am grateful the Lord has delivered me from this fear of death, but perhaps more than death, I have been really also thinking about how I live and if...
