My Mental Doesn’t Feel Healthy

Mental health problems often first develop during adolescence or early adulthood, with half of all mental disorders beginning by age 14, and 75 percent beginning by age 24.
Wow, that’s a crazy stat huh?! What you might think is just your friend acting weird could actually be them showing signs of a mental disorder.

The Lord’s Prayer: On Earth

“. . . your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.” (Matthew 6:10) How should we pray? That’s what the disciples asked Jesus in Luke 11. So he showed them. The phrase in this verse fits perfectly with Jesus’ worldview. He often said that every word he spoke and […]

The Lord’s Prayer: Holy

“This, then, is how you should pray: ” ‘Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name,’ ” (Matthew 6:9) It’s no wonder so many people have memorized the “Lord’s Prayer.” What a huge opportunity! When the Son of God says, “This is how you should talk to my Father,” we should write it down on […]

The Lord’s Prayer: Stop Babbling

“And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.” (Matthew 6:7-8) Some idol worshippers believed their gods were more likely to give them what they […]

The Lord’s Prayer: To the Father

“But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.” (Matthew 6:6) We’re all about prayer this week.

Discipline: Get Stronger

“Therefore, strengthen your feeble arms and weak knees. “Make level paths for your feet,” so that the lame may not be disabled, but rather healed.” (Hebrews 12:12-13) Hopefully, one big idea has jumped out to you from Hebrews 12 this week: Following Jesus is hard work. We’re in a tough race following the path of […]

Discipline: The Harvest

“No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it.” (Hebrews 12:11) The idea of God’s discipline as evidence of God’s love for me made a lot more sense after I had a son of my own. […]

Discipline: Endure

“Endure hardship as discipline; God is treating you as sons. For what son is not disciplined by his father?” (Hebrews 12:7) Way too many of us Christians have kind of blocked this part of Hebrews 12 out of our Bibles. Every once in a while we read it by accident and think, “God uses hardship […]

Discipline: Serious Sin

“In your struggle against sin, you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding your blood.” (Hebrews 12:4) We may not admit it out loud, but I think most of us carry around with us a kind of rating scale for sin. We all know the big ones: rape, murder, adultery, etc. But our […]
