Anticipating Change

Psalms 85:13The one constant in life is change—and most of it is unexpected. Flexibility is the key to handling change. That way you can be open to it and live courageously and victoriously.

Zest for Life

Luke 5:20What’s holding you back from living your life to the fullest? Feelings of uselessness? Self-pity? Fear? Guilt? It’s never too late—or too early—to make positive changes.

Young or Old it Doesn't Matter

Psalms 92:12-15Whatever your age, you need to keep learning, trying new things, and setting new goals. As someone has said, “Age is a matter of mind over matter—if you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter.”

Worth the Wait

Ecclesiastes 3:11Some things are worth waiting for. Do you struggle with God’s timing? Think of Ecclesiastes 3:11, “He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.” Trust that God knows what He’s doing and wait patiently for Him to act.

Who Said You Can't Fly?

Proverbs 27:1According to the theory of aerodynamics the bumblebee cannot fly. However, the bee doesn’t know that. The same can be true for us—who told you your best years have passed? Who said you’re too young to achieve your dreams? Stay open to what the Lord has in store for you. You never know what’s just around the corner!

Moments of Reflection

Matthew 5:6Taking God seriously is not only having a sensitive heart towards Him. It’s an inner craving to know Him more. Do you hunger and thirst after God?

Map of God's World

2 Corinthians 5:7At times we all find the route God has chosen for us doesn’t make a lot of sense. Especially when life takes a turn we don’t expect. But as Chuck Swindoll says, “Welcome to God’s World.”

Handling Change

Psalms 139:9-12Change isn’t easy, but it can be an opportunity for personal growth. As you learn to bend and adapt to change you become flexible. And when you’re flexible, you’re open to what God has in store for you.

Complaining's Three-Dimensional Effect

James 1:26Complaining never happens solo. When you complain, you not only discourage yourself but those around you. Listen to yourself today. Are you impacting those around you with complaints or with encouragement?

Unconfessed Sin

James 5:16Intimacy is rooted in honesty. Acknowledging wrongdoing is the first step towards recovering intimacy because you’ve been honest. Is there someone you need to make things right with?
