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

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...

Humility. It means to see oneself as right-sized, as neither bigger nor smaller than one truly is. If you’re still searching for a good New Year’s resolution, humility might be one to consider. In my work with clients, I have noticed that when people struggle with self-esteem and...

Gratitude For Grace

Posted by Crystal Brashear on

On his blog, Dr. Tony Evans once made a very important distinction: “God says to give thanks in everything. That doesn’t mean you need to give thanks FOR everything. You don’t need to give thanks FOR that bad day. Or FOR that bad relationship. Or being passed over at work...

Structural Integrity

Posted by Crystal Brashear on

The church is not a building. Or is it? When God gave instructions for the tabernacle to be built, he was very, very specific. There were to be a certain number of curtains, all of specific cubit lengths, made out of certain colors, with loops and clasps. There were to be poles of a certain...
