During the Lenten season, I invited you to read the entire Bible in 40 days (sounds crazy, I know. Click here to download the free reading guide). We glimpsed God’s story at a breathtaking 40,000 feet. Themes popped off the page I hadn’t noticed before. Stories I had typically glazed over were brought to life once again. I learned things about God and myself during those 40 days that I’m still chewing over. And I am busting at the seams with a love for God’s Word like never before.
While it was breathtaking to read Scripture at such a broad view, many of those who read along wanted to slow down and dive deep.
Well, me too! Me too!
That’s why I’m inviting you and your friends to go on another wild adventure with me through God’s Word this summer. I’m so excited to be diving into the Bible.Continue Reading...

“Jesus encourages the disciples to resist flashy, monotonous prayers whose only purpose was to win God's favor, wear down God's resolve, or appear spiritual to others. Jesus introduces prayer as the acknowledgement that God, our Abba Father, already knows everything and waits for us to call on him. God sits enthroned ready to listen, to help.”
After many years of writing in her prayer journal, missionary Sarah Young decided to listen to God with pen in hand, writing down whatever she believed He was saying to her. She knew her writings were not inspired as Scripture is, but journaling helped her grow closer to God. Others were blessed as she shared her writings, until people all over the world were using her messages. They are written from Jesus' point of view, thus the title Jesus Calling. This is a good devotional for anyone looking for a good read.
