• God is Great

    Devotionals | November 02, 2015

    When bad news comes your way, where do you turn? Hezekiah immediately turned to prayer when he was threatened. But he didn’t just pray for help. Hezekiah began and ended his prayer by remembering who God was. He exalted God, praising Him, honoring Him as greater than any threat he faced. Put your problems in perspective by focusing on God and His greatness.

    Devotionals | October 30, 2015

    What would it look like to live today without any complaining or arguing? How would it affect your peace of mind and the quality of your relationships? What difference would it make in your workplace and home? God calls us to trust Him with the ups and downs of life, and to honor those who are in authority over us. He calls us to reflect Him in all aspects of our lives, in every sphere of leadership entrusted to us. May others see the Father through you today and give glory to Him.

  • A Matter of Trust

    Blog | Karen McGuire | October 29, 2015

    Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him and he will make your paths straight. Proverbs 3:5-6

    It’s so easy to type those words out, but it’s one of the most difficult things to do. Why is that?

    We all like to be in charge of our own lives, make our own decisions, chart our own paths.  Yet in order to lead like Jesus, we must learn to trust God and build trust with those we lead.

  • Hypocrisy or Humility

    Devotionals | October 28, 2015

    It is easy to be critical of Peter’s self-confident corrections of Jesus. First he corrected Jesus’ understanding of what it meant to be the Messiah. Then he boasted that he would die for Jesus. Before criticizing Peter, however, perhaps we need to look at ourselves. How easy is it for us to humble ourselves before God? What about humbling ourselves before other people? How easily do we receive needed correction from them or from the Lord? This kind of humility isn’t found within humanity’s self-seeking and honor-defending nature; it flows from the heart of God Himself.

  • Rising to the Challenge

    Devotionals | October 26, 2015

    God has always used challenges in the life of faith. He brought the Israelites to the Red Sea in order to teach them to trust Him when they faced overwhelming obstacles. Consider how God grows us through challenges, teaching us about faith, revealing His goodness and power to us as we look to Him. The same God who met Moses and the Israelites as they faced the Red Sea will meet us in our challenges. He will make a way as we look to Him and follow His lead.

  • A Leader's Desire

    Devotionals | October 23, 2015

    Our hearts’ desires shape our actions. What is inside of us bubbles up and overflows in our prayers, our goal-setting, habits, and interactions with others. How often do we pray for God to make us like Him? Is our first concern the need and well-being of those entrusted to our care? At home, within the church, in the workplace and the world-at-large, people need to experience the love and mercy of God. They need to experience Jesus. Will they meet Him in you today? What is your desire?

    What Facebook Isn't Telling You

    Blog | Heather Day | October 22, 2015

    I don’t mean to brag, but my Facebook friends are smarter than yours.

    They read interesting books, have witty observations about life, and give their time, resources and energy to the most important causes.  Come to think of it, they like and do all of the things that I admire. 

    Because if they didn’t, I’d simply unfollow them.
