Day 21 The band For King & Country wrote a song called Proof of Your Love and the chorus says this: "So let my life be the proof, the proof of your love Let my love look like you, and what you're made of How you lived, how you died. Love is sacrifice So let my life be the proof. The proof of your love." Are you ready to let your life be the proof of His

Day 20 My dad served in Vietnam. Right after he graduated from college, he was drafted into the army. Growing up I never heard my dad talk about the war. But when I was in high school I remember vividly my dad coming up to me and telling me that if I ever got drafted, we were moving to Canada. And he was dead serious! War had done something to him that he refused to
Day 19 How many of you have ever felt unnoticed? Unfortunately, this is part of the human condition. Even though the God of the universe has uniquely created us on purpose for a purpose, and loved us so much that He sent His one and only Son to be brutally beaten, mocked, and put to death on a cross for OUR sins; we still get caught up in Satan’s lies and feel as if we’ve gone
Day 18 Jesus’ greatest sermon was given in Matthew 5, called the Sermon on the Mount. Jesus’ proclamations are oftentimes mistakenly interpreted as behavioral statements that will make us feel better and be better. A way to be blessed in this life. But Jesus was proclaiming so much more than fleeting happiness, wealth, success, etc. God was turning Israel and the world upside down through the ministry of Jesus, showing us a new way of
Day 17 In the fifth chapter of 1 Peter, we find Peter giving a word of encouragement. He’s telling his fellow elders to keep watch over the church and telling the young people to mind their wise elders. Of everything he is saying, he’s also acknowledging the struggles that come with being a Christ follower. Even more so in that time but also true for today. We may or may not be in physical danger
Day 16 Hide and seek- it’s a game that we all played as a kid. That feeling of waiting in anticipation for the other kid to find you sometimes felt like years. Are they close? When will they ever find me? Sometimes in our faith, we can feel like we are hiding from God. Maybe we are ashamed of what we have done or not feeling spiritual enough to come to Him with our fears
Day 15 Reflecting on 2020 and what it has taught the Church at large, is that we are not in control. Proverbs 16:9 says , “In their hearts humans plan their course, but the Lord establishes their steps.” There have been, and I know will continue to be many times in my life that I attempt to create my own steps, and create my own path. This year has created quite the picture for how out of control I
Day 14 I was terrible at Math. However, pretty decent at comedy. Some would disagree. Here's a couple math jokes I found online at 11:00pm at night. Why doesn’t anybody talk to circles? Because there’s no point. What do mathematicians do after a snowstorm? Make snow angles! Why was math class so long? The teacher kept going off on a tangent. Why wasn’t the geometry teacher at school? Because she sprained her angle. I'll stop. Math was all about
Day 13 The greek word used in Matthew 5:10 for righteousness is dikaiosynē. Look it up. It’s a lot of fun to try and say 10 times fast. It literally means: the condition acceptable to God. It doesn’t mean the condition acceptable to society; acceptable to culture; acceptable to your group of friends; or even acceptable to your Pastor. Righteousness is what’s acceptable to God. If we’re being honest, living in righteousness is hard. It’s hard because
Day 12 Albert Einstein famously said “The more I learn, the more I realize how much I don't know.” I really resonate with this quote in my own life. When I was sixteen, I knew it all. Now in my early 40’s I realize I truly don’t know much. And the beautiful truth about this revelation is that it leads to freedom. True wisdom doesn’t come from ourselves and our life experiences, but comes from God alone.
