How do you get up after weathering persecution or setbacks?

By |November 17th, 2016|Categories: Pondering, Purpose, Spiritual Formation|Tags: , , , , , , |2 Comments

By Allie Espinoza I thought to myself, I have to get back up and dust the dirt off my shoulder. But…. It was harder to put this very thing into action after times of being hurt. In my prayer time with God I would ask, Daddy how do I get up again? How do I begin to walk the path you have set before me? I know you are there, though I feel so inadequate and judged. How do I [...]

Running the Race

By Charity Rattray When they discontinued that lip color, it was life preparing you. When the holiday edition came and went another reminder. When the chef’s talent in summer so extraordinary that you had a pulse of panic that the fall menu couldn’t compare to the fresh tastes of summer you were learning. When your last baby walked. A hard lesson. When your little girl’s favorite cowboy boots no longer fit, you prepared for it. When that tween, turned into [...]

Calling Card

By |October 8th, 2015|Categories: Her Voice, Pondering, Purpose|Tags: , , , , |0 Comments

By Sherrie St. Hilaire I marvel at those who can confidently identify their calling and describe when and how they received it. I’m sure I gaze into their dazzling certainty like a deer in the headlights. I’m inching toward my sixth decade and have yet to Sherlock my way through the mysteries of my calling. It eludes me. My quest to unearth it has frustrated the liver out of me. In my twenties I was convinced I was called to [...]

Find Your Lane and Stay In It

By |September 17th, 2015|Categories: Her Voice, Pondering, Purpose, The Power of Women|Tags: , , , , , , |0 Comments

By Jen Ervig “Find your lane and stay in it!”  I first heard this piece of wisdom from Danice Squires at a women’s event at my church.  Since then, I often find myself meditating on it and it’s implications.  What she’s saying is find out what you’re good at and stick to it!  When we discover our giftings, our God given talents and abilities, develop them, and put them to work, only then, are we truly happy AND truly being [...]

Strategic Intersection

By |August 20th, 2015|Categories: Her Voice, Pondering, Purpose|Tags: , , , , , |1 Comment

God is in the business of intersections, coordinating crossing points where things line up and click in harmony at exactly the right time.Every individual comes to a crossroads where they must choose whether or not they will allow themselves to be intercepted, molded, and shaped in God’s image and embark on a path of service for Him. [Intersection – the act of intersecting or the state of being intersected; to meet and cross at one or more points; to share some [...]

Vigilante Christianity

By |July 30th, 2015|Categories: Her Voice, Pondering|Tags: , , , , , |1 Comment

By Joyce Williams Speaking of the last days, Jesus said: “And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold. But he who endures to the end shall be saved.” Matthew 24:12 Have you ever really thought about what “lawlessness” and “love growing cold” looks like? To me, it was just the headlines in the news or the struggles of the younger generation to stay morally pure. But recently, I got a hard look at what it really [...]

Are You Listening?

By |July 23rd, 2015|Categories: Her Voice, Pondering, Tip of the Day|Tags: , , , , , |0 Comments

By Teresa Bates Do you ever wish God would speak to you the same way He spoke to His people in the Old Testament; audibly, through burning bushes and angels?  He could speak that way today if He chose to but He often chooses to speak to us is through His Word, the Bible. One of God’s goals in speaking to us through His Word is to keep us safe.  He loves us and wants to protect us.  A form [...]

I Wonder…

By |July 9th, 2015|Categories: Her Voice, Pondering, The Church|Tags: , , , , , |0 Comments

By Jen Ervig It occurred to me that often we seasoned Christians criticize, chastise and basically judge the actions of those still young in Christ sometimes and I wonder if Christ looks at the same things we see and instead, smiles… I know. Incredulous, right? Don’t get me wrong. I’m not talking about sin. I’m talking about the actions that to us “older” Christians seem immature. The things that make our eyes go wide, followed by a slight roll, or [...]

Elisha and the Jar of Oil

By |July 2nd, 2015|Categories: Bible Study, Her Voice, Pondering, Purpose|Tags: , , , , , , |1 Comment

By Angela Craig What are you waiting for? God has called you for a purpose. Why are you holding back? What do you feel you need to move forward? More education, money, a title, the right season in life, an invitation? So often we don’t think we have enough to offer, or we don’t have what it takes to succeed on God’s behalf. This belief is simply not true. Take a look at the story of Elisha and the jar [...]

“Costume and Prop” Envy

By |June 18th, 2015|Categories: Her Voice, Pondering, Purpose|Tags: , , , |1 Comment

By Joyce Williams The Apostle Paul, suffering in a Roman prison, encouraged the Philippian believers to remain strong, to rejoice always in their salvation and to remain focused on God and His purpose for their lives. Saying yes to God is saying yes to His script for me. He provides the “costumes and the props,” so to speak, that will best suit the role He enlisted me to fill. This means the opportunities and experiences presented to me will be [...]
