When I Just Really Need to Trust God
When I'm the most tangled up inside my thoughts, my worries and my obsession over things I can’t change is when I need to decide I’m going to trust God no matter what is going on inside my mind. I just really need to trust Him ... That’s what it comes down to. So today I’m going to do that. Let’s take a few minutes to read some Scripture to solidify that trust in Jesus, our Savior and our sovereign God…

When I Don’t Know What the Future Holds
I have this habit of mentally jumping too far into the future, and then deciding I’m going to be afraid of it. Of whatever might be there waiting for me. I fear that a new problem or crisis will come crashing into my life, or more commonly, what current hard thing will be so much worse by then? I fear sickness, loss, disease, rejection and deep disappointment. But what’s worse is that I fully believe I’m right and validated in my fear … and I can sometimes leave God completely out of the scenario. Because when God is considered, and His great and surprising works are factored in along with his omniscience and goodness, we can be so very wrong. If you get stuck in cycles of being so very afraid of the future, this short episode is for you.

When I'm Having Trouble Sleeping
Sleep is necessary to good health in both the mental and physical sense, so when it’s elusive and feels out of my reach, I start to spiral and question everything. I even let myself believe that God has forgotten me, because why would something as simple and vital as nighttime rest be unavailable to me? I’ve learned that my hardships don’t mean God is hard-hearted toward me. Sleepless nights display my humanity — evidence of a life lived in a human body. So when I’m having trouble sleeping, heading to Scripture and leaning on some real truth makes a world of difference. Let’s close our eyes and soak in these words from two different beloved Psalms tonight.

When I Need to Remember I'm God's Beloved
When walking through daily frustration, sadness, ongoing sickness, chronic pain, disappointment or deep heartbreak, it’s easy to slip into the mindset that God has forgotten all about me, and has sidelined me from His loving and watchful eye. It’s easy to assume that if He saw me and loved me, that He would never allow me to feel this way or give any room for me to think He is anything but good, loving, caring and protective of me. To be beloved is to be “greatly loved.” But what if what we see in front of us doesn't look like God’s love? What if we know we are loved in our head, but don’t feel it in the midst of our circumstances?

When I Don't Know What to Pray
When I’m overwhelmed and feeling sad, helpless and lost, I often don’t know what to pray. I want to pray — I’m not against the act of prayer when I feel this way… I need it. I need to be with my Father in times like these because I know that prayer aligns my heart with God’s heart and helps me get in a good head space.. My relationship with Him is strengthened too when my prayer life is active. And whenever I’m feeling so low that I can’t find the words to say … I know I can pray my own jumbled words and that He hears me and sees me. I also know I can borrow prayers prayed by others who have felt overwhelmed like me. Listen in!

When I'm Struggling and I Trust God
How do I know God sees me? How do I know God hears my prayers? How do I know God cares about my pain? How do I know God knows what’s best for me and those I love? When I’m feeling sad or low, I sometimes wonder how much God sees and hears. When I’m devastated by deep pain, I sometimes wonder if He cares and truly does what’s best for me. But over and over again, even when I’m at my lowest, what it comes down to is: I trust God. I’ve seen too much of Him not to. I’ve experienced too much with Him to deny it. I believe in Him and I believe Him. If you find yourself struggling, but you truly trust God too, listen in and know God is worthy of your trust.

When I'm Hoping For Better Days Ahead
If you're living in the midst of deep pain and heartbreak, and are praying for and dreaming of better days ahead ... But you can’t see how any of what you’re walking through could ever possibly be good, turn out well or be used to bring God glory. You just can’t see it. You ask: Will there ever be any resolution or fix for what I see in front of me? In this moment, let’s trust that He sees, is sovereign over all you’re facing and is working in your life as I read through some beloved passages from the Psalms.

When My Words Get Me in Trouble
When my emotions are running high or exhaustion has taken its toll, my words can sometimes get me in trouble. When I let down the guard of wisdom and self-control, the words I speak are not wise or controlled. When I feel resentful, I speak as a person who has not communicated my desires and capacity. When I feel angry, who knows what will spill out. When I feel exhausted? Well, the people around me don’t get the kindest version of me. Words. They take self-control, dependence on God and practice to get them right. Do your words sometimes get you in trouble? I pray this 4-minute episode will help you time and time again when you're struggling with the words you speak.

When I've Lost My Joy
There are days where I feel so far away from who I want to be. I am worn out from the rigors of daily life. There are circumstances and people that drain me, and the heaviness of it all makes me feel like a tiny sliver of my former self. Like a sad stranger living inside of my body. Who is this person who looks like me and answers to my name, yet can’t find my way home to me? Or worse yet, is this person who I am now? If this resonates, I pray this 11-minute episode will meet you in this place, but show you that you don't need to live there.

When I'm Overthinking
If overthinking were an Olympic event, I’d have won several gold medals by now. I can laugh at myself, but I also know my overthinking can be problematic. My overthinking ramps up when life is pressing, when I’m up against a deadline, or when a relationship is in turmoil. I hash and rehash everything that was said, done, and is not yet said and... not yet done. I feel like I can’t stop the ruminations from filling my mind at all hours of the day — and especially at night.

When I'm Hurting
I’m in pain and it hurts so badly. If it’s not the pain in my body, it’s the pain of my aching heart. Suffering of every kind has the ability to lead to the same sad result ... despair. If the pain is long-lasting or repetitive, despair is more and more inviting if we’re counting on an end-date or some kind of resolution. And when there’s not, we ask: How could there be any good found in this when I’m hurting so much? Will it ever end? Is God truly good? And if He is… <span style="
