2020 is off to an amazing start! I couldn't be more thrilled to share with you Ibelieve.com's top article of 2019! My prayer is that this article will give you the courage to walk through the doors GOD is placing right in front of you!

Have you ever wondered if God was opening a door or if the enemy was teasing you with a fresh “opportunity”?

It can be difficult to decipher if your good idea is a “God idea.” In fact, I am a bel...

Sorrow- distress caused by loss, affliction, disappointment, etc.; grief, sadness, or regret.

Sorrow, a deep pain that won’t budge.

Sorrow, an internal morning over what has taken place

As I was praying over what to share. The words that kept resounding in my heart were, “Farewell to sorrow.”

Some of us have been through some things in the last few months that have rocked us to our core. Things that have challenged our faith. Thin...

Have you ever noticed that triumph and triumph  start the same?

The sound “try” starts them both.


In your life, it may seem the more you try to triumph, the more you face trials.

Yet, the more you try to succeed in the midst of trials, the more you experience triumph.

My friends, many of you are facing times of great trials. Sickness, loss, financial difficulty, relationship issues, trial after trial with no relief! Tod...

Have you ever read a scripture in one version, only to read it in another and get so much more from it!


Well it happened to me! Many of us are familiar with Romans 12:2, Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.


We’re not even going to get on how we never memorize that...

To some, these are just names. To others, these names represent a family torn, a congregation in mourning, and another tragedy. These pastors, each dying from suicide, are the unfortunate reminder that mental health and depression are ever present within the church community. They remind us that no one is above the sting of being so overwhelmed and f...

“My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the LORD. “And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine." Isaiah 55:8

The first day of school brings excitement, adjustment for all, and transition. So, when my six-year-old came off of the bus with tears, I wasn’t super surprised or upset. I figured maybe there was a simple confusion, but I questioned why his heart was troubled. After a bit of prodding he informed me,...

As a Christian of 15 years, I’ve often heard this phrase.

Guard your heart.

Truthfully, I put it in my Christian jargon pile. I let it sit between “This is my season” and “Jesus take the wheel.” It was simply what people say. However, over the last few weeks this phrase has been at the forefront of my mind. As I had experienced recent disappointments and heart breaks, I found myself yearning to understand how can I guard my hear...

Admittedly, this title is a bit off-putting.

We are taught from a young age to avoid strange places. Most of us have even learned over the years how to tell if a location that’s usually OK has become strange or creepy. News stories are full of people who met with unfortunate events because they were in strange places.

Instinctively, our response is to run away. Strange places make us feel unsure, awkward, and frightened.

Lately, the Lord has been speaking to me,

“Do you bring your hands to me or your heart?"

Can I be honest?

At this moment in my life, there’s a lot going on. From church planting to raising six kids and being a Professor, I find myself moving in many different directions. The truth is, I love it. I enjoy the sense of staying productive and doing things that will matter for generations to come. Yet, when I come to the Lord, I find...

Gracious Confidence

Recently I’ve been introduced to this new phrase. At first glance, I had no emotion or clue what was really going on. Yet, the more I see these two words together, I am convinced that we all could use several heaping scoops of GRACIOUS confidence.

Here’s the thing, we all know the overly confident person. They walk into the room and own it. They exude an air of “I got this.” They may or may not trample, ignor...
