6 Things Not To Forget Every Christmas

/
We’re just one week away to Christmas! Here are 6 things we shouldn’t forget this Christmas!

Don't Lose Heart

/
We may have started the year feeling like pristine jars; beautiful, untouched, and full of hope. But the year chipped away at us, leaving us feeling like broken, cracked jars, unworthy of containing anything within.

When God seems silent

/
“Hello darkness, my old friend." Seasons when God seems silent are painful times to go through, and can seem a lot like the darkness that lingers beyond the night.

/
My heart was tense. I kept remembering the recent conversation with my former church leader. I had explained to her my decision to leave for a new church, and apologized for letting her down.

/

Mercy Begets Mercy

/
I love reading and writing. Because words affect me so deeply, I know how much they can heal or hurt. So I used to be very judgmental toward people who were careless—and thus, hurtful—with their words.
