Joy is the product of a journey and every journey looks different. But no matter how different one’s journey, our source of joy will always remain the same.
God wants his church to be a place where EVERYONE is welcome; and EVERYONE feels at home. God longs for his lost children to come home. And when they do come home, he doesn’t shame them or disqualify them. Instead, he smiles and joyfully responds, “welcome home.”
Oh you who feels broken, tired, weary and lost … please hold on.
Whatever it is you’re going through — heartache, temptation, illness, doubt and fear — please know that God is still with you.
He’s not left you.
He still cares and He is still working all things together for good.
We are all broken.
We are all weak.
But because of who Jesus is and what he’s done for you and I, we don’t have to live a joyless life believing the lies of the enemy.
You may feel unworthy of His love and mercy much like I do, but don’t let that stop you from accepting and embracing every ounce of it.
Because, yes … He loves even you.

I have never felt as weak as I had in the moments that followed sentencing. My heart ached with a pain like never before and I would haveContinue reading “Asking All of the Wrong Questions”
