Despising the Shame

Posted by Crystal Brashear on

Yep, it totally fits… I would land in the devotional writing rotation on the week we are discussing shame. After all, anyone who knows me well knows that shame is perhaps my biggest struggle. I dread the way that shame washes over me when I realize I have made another mistake. I hate that...

King on the Heart Throne

Posted by Crystal Brashear on

It can be easy to miss the Messiah, Jesus Christ. In John 6:1—13, Jesus fed thousands of people with only five small loaves and two fish. He provided another in a long series of tangible signs that he was the one who had been prophesied about for centuries, the conquering king who would...

Seeing In Light Of Eternity

Posted by Crystal Brashear on

Brothers and sisters, think of what you were when you were called. Not many of you were wise by human standards; not many were influential; not many were of noble birth. But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong...

Opportunity in the Detour

Posted by Crystal Brashear on

When Pharaoh let the people go, God did not lead them by way of the land of the Philistines, although that was near. For God said, ‘Lest the people change their minds when they see war and return to Egypt.’ But God led the people around by the way of the wilderness toward the Red...

Prayer Mediated By Our Great High Priest

Posted by Crystal Brashear on

Lots of people have a favorite verse or passage of Scripture that just speaks to them in a special way. Here’s mine: Since then we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus, the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. For we do not have a high priest who is...

Believing God

Posted by Crystal Brashear on

Years ago, I had the privilege of participating in Beth Moore’s Bible study called Believing God, which explores the lives of people like Abraham and Moses. These were not perfect men. These were men who doubted themselves, who doubted their own abilities to carry out the tasks and...

Psalm 139

Posted by Crystal Brashear on

O Lord, you have searched me and known me! — Psalm 139:1 Even before I knew myself, before there was a self to be known, You knew me. You know when I sit down and when I rise up; you discern my thoughts from afar. You search out my path and my lying down and are acquainted with all my...

Have you ever thought deeply about the word encourage? It comes from the Latin root cour, which means heart, with the prefix en, which means to put in. Thus, the idea of encouragement is to put something into one’s heart. The heart is like a treasure box, a storage container for our...

Love Over Rules

Posted by Crystal Brashear on

When I was younger, I believed a lot of stupid things. For example, I believed that having bangs that stuck up a mile high, defying gravity by virtue of a gallon of hairspray, was beautiful. I believed that having an armful of Swatches, a Coca-Cola shirt, Guess jeans and Keds made me cool. (Ah...

What Is In A Name

Posted by Crystal Brashear on

OK, let’s play a game. I’m going to start a poem, and you finish it for me: Roses are red violets are blue… Did you know the rest? Many of us can’t even remember where we first learned that poem. Was it in kindergarten, during Valentine’s Day? Who knows? The...
