December Tornadoes

More storms made the news in the overnight hours as tornadoes and high winds hit parts of Iowa, Wisconsin, and Minnesota. Reports about these storms and the ones over the past weekend were using words like “record number,” “unprecedented,” “historic.” I didn’t even think about the fact that these are December tornadoes. We should be …

Wait on the Lord

I always feel so encouraged when I read David’s words of faithfulness. Like in today’s passage when he writes, “Teach me Your way, O Lord, And lead me in a smooth path,…” (Psalm 27:11). Twice he says, “Wait on the Lord.” (v. 14). It’s an important reminder especially when we’re suffering. God will “strengthen your …

Unmet expectations

I am blessed to be participating in a book launch. That means I’m reading the book, interacting with the author, and promoting it on social media. There are several wonderful nuggets of information and inspiration within the book, but this quote really resonated with me: “Most hurt feelings are the result of unmet expectations.” Kendra …

Pray for those who hurt you

Sometimes the people who hurt me the most are those closest to me. Maybe that’s true for most adults. While we’re in school, or even within a work environment, bullies and mean, horrible people may make our lives miserable. I feel like they are easier to deal with (or get over) than loved ones who …
