Day 60: Love Song

Nowadays, Youtube, radio waves, and our iTunes accounts are flooded with modern-day love songs. Whether they come from Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber, boy bands, Glee, rap, country, etc…unless they’re centered on Jesus, they can only offer empty promises. Let’s take a look today at one of the original love songs in the Bible. Pray: for […]

Day 59: White Lies

We’ve all heard of them. And, if we’re honest with ourselves, I think it’s safe to say (unfortunately) that we’ve all said more than a few in our lifetimes. Even toddlers know how to lie and hide things from others, especially their parents. Why do we have this tendency to lie? Where does it come […]

Day 57: Demanding and Deserving

There’s so many more sides of Him to explore and understand, but […]

Day 56: Treat others the way you would want to be treated

Day 55: A New Covenant

I’ve never really had a good understanding of what the covenants of God were/are. To me, they seem like common christian words that I can gloss over and use context clues to gather the full meaning of the phrase. “Promise” seems to be the most appropriate synonym of covenant, but as I have been able […]
