“Making Them Glad”: Encouraging Others

On Wednesday, December 4th, a civil society organization commended the Nigerian army for “their level of professionalism.” In a world where people—especially those in the Northern half of Nigeria—are fighting the Nigerian military, these words of commendation can mean a lot to an army’s morale and show them that they are seen.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Earth, sing to the Lord!
Be happy as you serve the Lord!
    Come before him with happy songs!
Know that the Lord is God.
    He made us, and we belong to him.
    We are his people, the sheep he takes care of.
Come through the gates to his Temple giving thanks to him.
    Enter his courtyards with songs of praise.
    Honor him and bless his name.
The Lord is good!
    There is no end to his faithful love.
    We can trust him forever and ever!”
(Psalm 100, ERV)

This Thanksgiving, please give thanks for your freedom and family, as many people do not have that!

I AM SO THANKFUL FOR ALL OF YOU!!! 

Clinging to God: Prayer for Tania Avalos

Tonight, I was truly brought to tears by the story of a woman named Tania Avalos, a woman who lost her husband and daughter while trying to cross the Rio Grande into US immigration. Her story was made public when this picture of her husband and daughter was taken in June of 2019.

This woman, in her interview on 60 Minutes (found here), wanted first to talk about her faith in God and how He is pulling her through. My heart filled so full for her. Because this is not about politics…. this is not about twisting and perverting stories. It is about a deeply hurt woman, choosing to cling to her God through the most heartbreaking event of her entire life.

I pray that I would have the faith of Tania. I cannot imagine her pain. Can we just lift her, her family, and her loved ones up in prayer?


Do you know Jesus?

Tragedies such as these break Jesus’ Heart. He knows every tear that Tania– and all of us– has shed. Learn more about Jesus’ great Love for you, here.


The Saugus High School Shooting: A Moment for Prayer

I am heartbroken at the amount of evil that has been seen recently. A 16-year-old shooting at random at Saugus High School, getting rid of precious lives; families broken, hearts shattered.

May God use this tragedy to bring people to Himself… may they run to Him, and not away. Jesus can and will use this horrific event for good (Genesis 50:20).

Please, stop whatever you’re doing, and pray for those affected by the shooting, including the families of the two students who were killed, 15-year-old Gracie Muehlberger and 14-year-old Dominic Blackwell (source).

Thank you.
