No One Will Ever Love You Like He Loves You

Have you ever wondered if your sins are beyond the reach of God’s love and grace? Is there something in your past that you are so ashamed of that you believe there is no way He could possibly forgive and forget it? If you are unsure of just how far-reaching His mercy, grace, and love […]

Relaxed Reliance on Him

 It seems that the mantra in today’s self-help world is I’ve got this! I’m strong and well-able to make life work myself by eating right, working out, following the principles of the latest and best self-help guru (fill in the blank), and the list goes on and on and on. I’m not knocking healthy life […]

His Prescription for Godly Feelings

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Done Deal, Flawless Fusion, Gospel of Grace, Holy but Hoodwinked, Inside-Out Living, Pursuing Love Book Excerpts

Feelings, nothing more than feelings … If you grew up in the seventies and eighties, you might’ve heard a familiar tune as you read those words. They are the words of a lovesick man whose feelings are unrequited. Even though the writer of this song seemingly tries to downplay the importance of feelings in the […]

Happy Holiness

Have you ever heard the saying, “What you focus on grows”? When it comes to expressing my flawless identity in Christ, I have found this to be true. When we mess up, the natural tendency is to focus on our failure. The thing is, the more we focus on our failure, the worse we feel. […]

He Is Not Convicting You

If you are a Christian and are struggling with feelings of guilt over sins you’ve committed, then you need to stop it. Yes, I said, “Stop it!“ Maybe you think by feeling guilty you are somehow helping to pay for your sins. But this is not biblical and it’s certainly not the gospel of grace […]

Get out of Your Head and into Your Heart

Three years ago at this time, I was going through hard, hard circumstances on several different levels: health, family, and ministry. My emotions were raw, and the anxiety was so bad at times that I broke out in hives. Super spiritual, right? I am so thankful that Jesus was faithful, loving me right out of […]

Your Settled Significance in Christ

True confession. Because of my fear of failure, I dropped out of college twice before I started the third time and stayed the course, earning my Bachelor of Science in Mathematics for Secondary Education. I made straight A’s in high school and couldn’t bear the thought of making anything less than perfect in college. And […]

How God is Changing Lives through Fifty Days in His Pursuing Love Devotional

In last week’s blog post, “What’s So Good about Friday, Part 1,” I told you that this week’s post would be Part 2. Sorry, but I won’t be sharing that today. Instead, I want to let you know how God is already changing lives through my newest book, Fifty Days in His Pursuing Love Devotional, […]

What’s So Good about Friday? Part 1

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Done Deal, Flawless Fusion, Gospel of Grace, Inside-Out Living, Pursuing Love Book Excerpts

Today is Good Friday, the day when Christians around the world remember and reflect on Jesus Christ’s crucifixion at Calvary over 2,000 years ago. It might seem strange to some that we would refer to the unspeakable suffering that Christ went through on our behalf as “good.” But if He hadn’t gone to the cross, […]

The Final Facet of Forgiving Others

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Done Deal, Flawless Fusion, Gospel of Grace, Holy but Hoodwinked, Inside-Out Living, Pursuing Love Book Excerpts

In my last post, “The First Facet of Forgiving Others,” I shared with you that the fundamental reason you are miserable when you don’t forgive others is that you are a brand-new creation in Christ. And because of your eternal spiritual union with Him, you are a ‘forgiven forgiver at heart.’ Any time you aren’t […]
