Skip Lloyd   I believe the single most important habit for every Christ follower to develop is a daily quiet time. First Thessalonians 5:17 says, “pray without ceasing.” While it’s true you need to learn the habit of consistently praying throughout your day, I personally believe it’s even more important to carve out a special… Read more »

“That is why I tell you not to worry about everyday life—whether you have enough food and drink, or enough clothes to wear.

Emotions are wonderful things given to us by God.  They allow us to not just interact with the world around us through our senses, but to interpret and give meaning to all that we experience.  It’s why a certain song will send tears to our eyes, a certain perfume will invoke feelings of love, why… Read more »

“Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one receives the prize? So run that you may obtain it. Every athlete exercises self-control in all things. They do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we an imperishable. So I do not run aimlessly; I do not box as one beating the air. But I discipline my body… Read more »

I believe balance and implementing practical steps toward health are extremely important in our discipleship process. God’s Word gives many examples of practical things for us to do in order to enjoy life to its fullest. Remember, God made us to be body, mind, emotion, AND spirit. For example, I’ve found when one area in… Read more »

We’re depending on God; he’s everything we need. What’s more, our hearts brim with joy since we’ve taken for our own his holy name. Love us, God, with all you’ve got — that’s what we’re depending on.
