Alignment Series Part 6: Speak Life Over Your Dreams

When I let go of The Pointed Life for over a year, I genuinely thought I would never come back to it. In the dark season I was in, hopelessness set in. I couldn’t see a future, let alone have any hope for it. I had no idea what I was going to do, and that’s all I...

Alignment Series Part 5: What To Do With Pain

In the fall of 2016, I spent three months in bed. I experienced a grief more than I’d ever known, and I thought it was God who caused it. I blamed Him for the pain. When you believe the one you love, and the one who is supposed to love you with an unfailing love, hurt...

Alignment Series Part 4: What are you thinking?

A couple of weeks ago, I had an incredible week. It began as one of those weeks where I felt like I was on top of the world. Things were going in the right direction. Prayers were getting answered. I had joy. But then one morning toward the end of the week, I woke up...

Alignment Series Part 3: We Can Be Honest with God

Sometimes we forget or neglect to tell God things, because we know He already knows. He does know everything about you, but He wants to know YOU. He wants you to let Him really know you. Sometimes it's shame that keeps us hidden. But just like in Genesis 3, when God...

Alignment Series Part 2: How Do You Renew Your Mind?

Hello there! I hope you were encouraged by what I shared in the video. There's more in this article, because I believe one of the most influential and life-altering things we can do is renew our minds. Romans 12:2 is not without promise. It says, "Do not be conformed...

Alignment Series Part 1: Three Keys to Agreeing with God

One of the definitions of alignment is a position of agreement. It is why I subtitled the series, "A Position of Agreement with God". When you agree with someone, it means you are like-minded and share the same views, opinions, and beliefs. When I refer to agreements...

Alignment Series Welcome

Hello, friend and welcome! Did you watch the video I posted above? In the video, I share a little about the "Alignment Series". But here, I want to tell you more about the "why" behind it. I just came through one of the darkest seasons of my life. When I felt like I...

We Are Developed in Secret

It's tempting to think we have to be "all out there" to become someone important, but it's in the secret place we are developed — not on stages. It's in secret we are developed, like an image in a photographer's dark room; like a seed in the soil; like a baby in her...

Pursue Devotion: Lord, Help Us Pursue You

Often when Jesus asks us to clasp hold of His outstretched hand, He is asking us a few questions too: Do we want to trust Him more than ourselves? Do we want to be healed? Do we want to be restored and let go of the old life that is causing us pain? He asks if we are...

Prayer Devotion: Your God is Bigger

No matter what adversity lies in front of you — no matter how big and immovable the mountain appears — God is bigger. He is able. He is willing.     Like light breaking forth after the dark of night, His power is unstoppable. His strength is unmatched. His will is...

Prayer Devotion: Agree With God

The angel spoke to Mary about what the Lord had planned for her life. "The angel said to her, 'The Holy Spirit will come on you. The power of the Most High will cover you. The holy Child you give birth to will be called the Son of God'" (Luke 1:35).     Though the...

Prayer Devotion: Lord, Help Me Be A Good Friend

It's been a little while since I've posted an honest prayer here. If this prayer is your desire also, offer it with me to our God and Friend.     Lord, You call me a friend. But can You call me a good friend? Help me a be a good friend to You, God. I don't want to be...
