The Surprise Blessing that Comes from Wrestling With God

Asaph did three things as he wrestled with God, and teaches us the surprise blessing when we turn off the noise and get face to face with God in prayer. #Biblestudy #Psalms #WomensBibleStudy #GoodMorningGirls

Sometimes I think we don’t wrestle with God enough.

Rather than digging in deep and lingering long in His word and laying out our soul in prayer, we turn to worldly bandaids to solve our problems.

What if we got away from our family and friends and we closed our devotional books and shut down our phones and we got alone and simply wrestled it out with God.

No quick easy fixes – just you and God – for hours.

We google and click and scroll and click and meet in coffee houses in search of answers.  We buy book after book and watch movie after movie to escape our troubles.  We plan far off travels, to get away from it all, but our baggage inside our souls, goes with us.

Don’t get me wrong – God gave us many good things to enjoy, but if we are not careful, these things will become poor substitutes for intimacy with God.

Jacob wrestled with God.

Jacob was scared to return to his hometown where Esau was angry with him and so as he laid wide awake in fear, he began...

When You Are Tempted – Remember These 4 Truths!

In times of temptation - your flesh and your heart may fail but God! He is our strength. Here are 4 truths to remember when you are tempted. #Biblestudy #Psalms #WomensBibleStudy #GoodMorningGirls

On today’s video, I am sharing a very personal story about a time in my life when I was tempted and nearly slipped and stumbled  off the path of doing what is right.  The hardest part of this story is that it didn’t happen 20 years ago – it seems like it’d be easier to tell if it had.  Instead, it happened more like 2 years ago.

For those who have followed my blog for a long time – you might remember when I posted a blog post titled: Walking in Faith When the Future Is Unclear.  After I posted that blog post, I went on an extended break from blogging. This situation was happening just a few weeks beforehand.  It was one of the things God used to show me that I needed to take a break and get alone with Him.

We never know what temptation will be around the next corner – so join me on this video as we discuss – When You are Tempted – Remember These 4 Truths…

Jesus in the Psalms: 2 Lessons From Psalm 69

Without a doubt, we see Jesus in the Psalms. There are six things we see about Jesus in Psalm 69 and two lessons that it teaches us about Him. #Biblestudy #Psalms #WomensBibleStudy #GoodMorningGirls

Did you know that the book of Psalms is the most quoted Old Testament book in the New Testament?

After Jesus rose from the dead and appeared to the disciples, he said these words:

44 “These are my words that I spoke to you while I was still with you, that everything written about me in the Law of Moses and the Prophets and the Psalms must be fulfilled.” (Luke 24:44)

Jesus said the Psalms had prophetic words within them.  Some of the Psalms that do this are Psalm 2, 8, 16, 22, 40, 41, 45, 68, 69, 102, 110, & 118.

These Psalms are called “Messianic Psalms”.

All of the Old Testament points to the coming Messiah, our Wonderful Counselor, the Mighty God, the Everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace, the Lord of Lords, our great Redeemer, the Good Shepherd, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the final sacrifice – the Lamb of God!

Today’s post may be a bit more technical than my typical posts but I think it is going to be a blessing to see our Savior hidden in...
