The Message

What is keeping you from forgiving? Is the sin too much? Is it not noteworthy enough to deserve it? Maybe you are scared to let it go, or you are loving the ability to hold something over another person’s head. But Jesus is busy speaking words of forgiveness- even to you. So why are you waiting to forgive?

The Message

What is keeping you from talking? Maybe you have some difficult conversations ahead of you. Maybe you aren’t sharing simple words of joy and thankfulness with those around you. But Jesus is forcing difficult talks upon us, bringing up the pain of our past, hammering the hypocrisy of the present, and addressing our anxiety over the future. Why are you waiting to talk with him?

Why are you waiting to answer the call?

What is keeping you from picking up God’s call? Too busy? Too distracted? Too worried about what might happen or what others might say about you? God has put you at this time and this place- surrounded by these people- for his purpose. Jesus has answered the call to save you. Why are you waiting to answer his call?

Time To Pray

Learning to pray is a lot like learning to speak. We start with mumbles, groans, and cries, and they eventually turn into understandable words. How can we learn to pray? We learn to listen, learn to learn, and learn to join Jesus as he prays.

Why are you waiting to pray?

What is keeping you from praying? Is life too easy? Too overwhelming? Are you caught up in other relationships? Are you caught up missing people? Why are you waiting to pray?

Ash Wednesday – What are you waiting for?

On this day of repentance, we remember our many sins and our deep brokenness. We are people in need of repair. During Ash Wednesday, we seek to give up our sinfulness; this Lenten season, we are going to take up something. We are going to dedicate ourselves to 40 days of following Jesus through intentional reflection, reading, prayer, and action. We are marked this day with ashes, and with purpose, as God’s redeemed children, following Christ to the cross.

Navigating Anxiety

What are you anxious about? Notice I didn’t say are you anxious. Most of us if asked what are we anxious about would have an answer within a few seconds. Anxiety and stress are a part of our lives, and it matters how we navigate these tense situations. We cast our anxieties on God because he cares for us!
