A relationship without trust will never last this especially includes your relationship with God. To believe and see God as reliable and completely trustworthy Person, helps you to endure life’s many delays and disappointments. But when trust is absent, so is the power to persevere potentially opening the door to resentment and bitterness. So it is important to take preventive measures and discover why God’s love is the love you can always trust.
Trust and Time
Who you trust is one of the most important things in your life, because who or what you trust can make or break you. The Bible comprises several commands encouraging us to place our trust wholeheartedly in the Lord God Almighty. Not placing our trust in ourselves, our spouses, our jobs, our money, so we can live happier lives. With our trust in the Lord, we will never fall victim to fear, because God is God, and there is no one like Him.
Do I dare to hope?
Sometimes, you wonder what is the point in hoping for change if life always knocks you down. Every time you put your best foot forward, you face unexpected unemployment, a flat tire, a failing relationship, the death of a friend or pet. It seems like life can never give us a break, and God is nowhere to be found. I know exactly what that feels like. In this blog post, I investigate the apprehension to hope in fear of opening myself up to more pain and unmet expectations. I question do I dare to hope as I confront the realities of my situation.
Finding the Blessings in “Hard”ships
Sometimes, it really does feel like these rough seasons are here to stay. That there is no silver lining in sight. Your circumstances have pummeled you to the ground and you cannot find another reason to smile or go on. But I challenge you my friend, to not look beyond what you see, but to take a great harsh look at your reality. To see how the Lord God is working in your situation and how He is highlighting the unrecognized blessings in your life in new ways!
A Dash of Adversity
“I feel like I have all the pieces in my puzzle but they’re just not coming together.” Have you ever felt like this? You know certain parts of your life whether your career or love life are before you and yet you do not have the power to fit these pieces together.

Well, my friends have you considered that a life void of adversity is not written in the books for anyone. Read my post about how I handle a dash of adversity sprinkled through my day.
Me and Anxiety
Lately, the responsibilities of my life have been doubling up and it seems like I cannot get a moment to breathe. However, the way I respond is entirely different, no longer am’I running from my fears and coping with negative practices.
Check your Lifestyle
Okay, let’s be frank for a minute! America has millions of christians living everywhere. People see our Christian focal points and our staples, which are our churches, community centers, and conferences. Our Bibles are plastered in every library, however how many of us are living the true Christian life. In Francis Chan’s “Crazy Love” he reminds us of how God’s love is our motivation to change and not remain the same.
Reading is Good for Christians
When was the last time you actually read the Bible? The last time God’s Word renewed your mind and transformed your way of thinking. God did not give us His Word simply for it to collect dust, and if you don’t read it. You are surely missing out on some hidden treasures!
God, You, and Discipline
Discipline does not feel good at it. Especially, when you feel like you’re being unfairly punished. Why does God use punishment as a tool? How useful is it?
Lessons from the Adulting Playbook
Have you ever thought where did I ever go wrong? I followed the directions given to me word from word. I bubbled in the right answers.
