Learning to Lean

Posted by Blake Clickner on

As I was sitting on a bench at a camp in Oklahoma, I begin to feel a stirring in my heart and, before I knew it, I was in tears. I knew God was leading me to leave the church where I was serving. I knew I didn’t want to leave, and the more I prayed and asked God to make it clear that I was...

God Won't Lose Us

Posted by Steve Glenn on

“And now, O Lord, for what do I wait? My hope is in you.”— Psalm 39:7 A few years ago, we had a storm that came through Mesquite and knocked out the power at one of our elementary schools. I went out to the school. We were thinking about the possible need to relocate some...

Trust Your Guide

Posted by Joe Paris on

Several years ago, my wife and I were invited by one of her former students to go flying in her dad's airplane, a small twin-engine plane that he used mainly for regional flying. So Lindsay and I checked our schedule — which was pretty wide open before having kids — found a free...

Trust the One Who Knows


Posted by Ian Crosby on

Have you ever wondered how Google is able to know how much traffic there is around you? Like how you can open up your app and see the green, yellow, or red lines on the route you are trying to take to get to the closest place that serves chips and salsa? It’s crazy how it works. They're...

Turbulence Drives Us To Our Greatest Need

Posted by Nolan Jones III on

I have three questions that I would like to address today: What is our greatest need as human beings? Does God desire to provide us with our greatest need? How does God provide this need for us on a day-to-day basis? Understanding the answer to these questions will eliminate the need to...

And when he had seized him, he put him in prison, delivering him over to four squads of soldiers to guard him, intending after the Passover to bring him out to the people. So Peter was kept in prison, but earnest prayer for him was made to God by the church. Now when Herod was about to bring...

You Find What You Look For

Posted by Crystal Brashear on

If worrisome thoughts were visible to the naked eye, I think they would look like little fleas hopping around inside our heads. Fleas are nasty, blood-sucking little parasites. They’re great at hiding and difficult to totally eradicate. And just as soon as you’ve gotten your pet...

Don't Let Worry Win

Posted by Scott Hiney on

I have a strange relationship with worry and anxiety. I have a lot of both, but I also feel like I’ve learned to manage both fairly well. Unfortunately, I think that’s my biggest pitfall. The moment we decide that we can work with worry and try and mitigate its symptoms, the more we...

God Knows What He's Doing

Posted by Riley Roberson on

Around mid-August, I hit 50,000 miles in the air for the year. At this point, at least these two things are true: I’m pretty tired of turbulence, and I’m really tired of airplane food. I was fortunate enough to go on a lot of trips this year to places like Ghana, Arizona, New...

Get in the Yoke


Posted by Doug Hall on

Anxiety is a relentless, destructive force. Whether it's the continual weight and fear of an anxious soul or the dart-like pangs of panic attacks, worry can be debilitating.
