Lauren DuBois   I’m just going to be honest. This week has been a rough one...I guess these past few months have been rough. It has been a lot of up-and-down emotions and days. I have gone from feeling happy to sad within a matter of hours. I have let my emotions control my...

Mary Johnson   As I was thinking about writing this devotion, I hesitated about the theme because I know it is something I’ve written about before. But you know what? It’s a truth I constantly need to come back to and be reminded about in my life, so I figured it might be...

  Danielle Disbennett   Worship. What does that mean to you? Do you think it means singing songs to glorify God? Maybe you think it means lifting your hands at church on Sunday mornings. I think these are both ways to worship, but what does the Bible say about true...

Tiffany Fulk   Awhile ago, I listened to a sermon series by Louie Giglio called “People of the Fine Print.” He talked about the people you don’t hear a lot about in the Bible, like Barnabas from the New Testament. You don’t hear much about him, but he was so...

Lori Parrish   I watched a sermon entitled “Barriers to Blessings” (Steven Furtick, Elevation Church) on Isaiah 43:16-19 that really spoke to my heart. We sing a song at The Tree by Elevation Worship called “Do It Again.” The scriptural foundation of this song was...

Brandon Leitnaker   One Sunday before church, I was out on a run, and off to my right in my neighbor’s yard, I spotted two bucks grazing on the dew-drenched grass. I slowed down because I was not sure how they would respond to the sight of me. They were too engrossed in their...

Katie Iser   Over the last decade, I have attended more funerals than I would have expected. Deaths that were too soon, in my opinion, and were difficult spiritually and emotionally draining. But recently, I attended the funeral of my 101-year-old great aunt Annabelle. It might seem...
