Summer time can be a challenging time in life as it is often a time of transition. Whether you find yourself entering or leaving school, moving, or anything else, we can find this season of limbo to be challenging to navigate, making the decisions we make throughout this time heavy and often a little frightening. Finding the will of God is a point of wrestling for many of us as we make our way through life.

We consider it to be this process of finding the one right answer that will make everything else in life make sense. This causes us to nervously wrestle with decisions and stress over seasons when we lack understanding or clarity. If you are anything like me, these times caused me to live in fear of making the wrong choices and somehow messing up my … Read More »



A New Day’s Resolution

27th February

Remember those New Year’s resolutions? As we are now more than skin deep into 2016, most of those New Year’s resolutions have probably already faded into the distant memories of January. You were going to work out twice a day, remember? You were only going to eat healthy food, remember? You were going to keep up with your BREAD Bible reading, remember? You were going to pray and fast more, remember?

The problem with New Year’s resolutions is that they are just that: New Year’s resolutions. They don’t provide a backup plan for when you fail or fall behind. However, you don’t have to wait until 2017 to make a decision to start again. You can start again today! Here are some tips to help you get back on track to accomplish your goals so you can make the most of … Read More »



The Purpose Problem

22nd January

Anyone and everyone who attended North American Youth Congress 2015 can tell you it was a game changer. There was an unprecedented move of God that affected everyone in some way, shape, or form, whether directly or indirectly.

Our generation has been preached to and prophesied over. It has been confirmed in the Spirit that we are much bigger and stronger than we could ever think when we follow God. There is no doubt in anyone’s mind about that.

But the question I’m sure is going through a lot of our minds is still out there—what now?

It’s only been a few months, and it already seems like the world around us is falling apart. Christians are being persecuted left and right, schools are being terrorized, and the world is spiraling even deeper in immorality. Trying to live right in a world full … Read More »



Skeletons

25th August

When you were young and your mom told you to clean your room, most of the time your response probably wasn’t exactly joyful. Some refuse, others might inform her that it’s already clean, even more probably head off to the room to shove things under beds and into closets in an effort to point to a finished product.

As children, we learn a system of punishment/reward, a system that governs our society, and structures our way of thinking in a very powerful way.

If I speed, I get a ticket.
If I steal, I get arrested.
If skip work, I get fired.
This works, sort of.

However, a system like this leads to another sort of issue; the concept of “don’t get caught,” and it can be an even stronger drive than the previously instituted system.

If you speed, do it carefully and … Read More »
