Are You Rooted?

     When we don't forgive others it is like this picture. We let roots of bitterness grow and grow, deeper and deeper until they have squeezed every bit of love and joy out of us. 
     So why do let our roots strangle us until we can no longer breathe? How many roots of bitterness do you have growing in you right now? Do you feel free of roots because you have learned to forgive? Or do you feel so entangled with roots of bitterness that you don't know how to forgive?

Ready or Not, Here I Come!


Remember the days of playing Hide and Seek as a child? Remember how much fun it was? Do we ever stop playing Hide and Seek, is it a game we continue to play after childhood? Hide and seek is a game that we play as children that turns into actions and decisions we make when we get older.

#Truth

  • "I have the fastest car! #Truth"
  • "Somewhere someone is looking for exactly what you have to offer. #Truth"
  • "Don't let someone's words blind you to their behavior. #Truth"
  • "Your body, Your rules. Don't let society mess you up." #Truth
Statements like these are the hashtags of our lives. But do they satisfy? Do they change? Can they transform? Or is there something better?

ACTION!





I grew up in a Christian home. I was taught to attend church every Sunday, to have good morals, pray before every meal, celebrated Jesus' birthday at Christmas, read the Bible, but something was missing for me. I only knew how to be Christian by doing all of those things, I didn't know that there was a real relationship I could have with Jesus.  . . . . . There was Action to be done!!!!

Light at the End of the Tunnel

How much light is at the end of your tunnel?
We spend so much time out of our days living in our pain. In high school  I was so consumed with trying to be better, trying to be enough and trying to be the best and somehow I never seem to be better or enough or the best. Life seemed hopeless. When we look at our lives in the future the tunnel ahead of us seems dark and claustrophobic. How much light do you see at the end of your tunnel?

Can't Force the Force

There are many things in life we would like control of! Let's face it... you would likely not be reading this article if you didn't in some way try and control your life.

Yet, the more we try to have the power to control the more we realize just how lacking we really are. Soon our utter powerlessness to control our circumstances in life become so overwhelming.

Paul David Tripp says this; "The fact that I am not in control should not make me think that my world is out of control." 

So, Are you ready to give up what little power you believe you have for the Power that is in control no matter how little you believe?
