Psalm 100:5

Having my own family helps me understand love much better.
For the Lord is good. His unfailing love continues forever, and his faithfulness continues to each generation.”
Psalm 100:5 (NLT)

A lot of people picture God as a frowning humbug, eager to shake His finger at us or worse, quick to completely walk away out of frustration. This couldn’t be further from the truth.

I used to think this of the Lord until I started reading the Bible with regularity. If you find yourself doubting God’s love for you, read more of the Word. Glean truth straight from the source (the Bible) and you’ll see the Lord’s heart – that He loves you, always and no matter what.

Psalm 100:5 reminds us that God’s love endures, it’s not conditional. The Lord loves us not because we deserve it, instead, He loves because His love is unfailing. He loves us because He says He loves us. There’s nothing we can do to make Him stop loving us. 

Walk confidently today in knowing that if you've repented from sin and believe that Jesus is your savior, you're a child of God and He loves you more than you can ever imagine - and there's nothing you can do to change that.



FAITH: When I Chose Modesty

When I was in my teens and early 20s, I was extremely immodest. While I was getting ready to go out, my goal was to look as hot as possible and collect as much attention as possible. 

I thought that if I could be the hottest woman in the room, I would be able to capture attention and it would be mine for as long as I wanted. It didn't occur to me that the kind of attention I was seeking is a fleeting kind. In other words, it didn't matter if I was the most beautiful woman that guy had ever seen. The kind of guy who appreciated my immodesty had zero standards whatsoever. He'd hang on my every word until someone else's skin flashed by. He'd flirt with me and then turn around and flirt with every other girl as well. This guy didn't care about whose makeup was better, who was witty, who had better legs, who was nicest, etc. The kind of guy who is attracted to immodesty is only interested in one thing and that's not your heart. This dude has no other standards an…

FAITH: Are You Willing to Give God Anything He Wants?

Push Up popsicles are interesting.  In order to eat more ice cream, you need to literally push up the stick that's connected to the platform in which the ice cream sits.

My toddlers both lack the strength and dexterity to push up their Push Ups, so I have to make myself available to help them out.  One of my boys understands this.  As his ice cream dips below the cardboard container, he'll eagerly hand his treat over so I can push the stick upwards and he can continue eating.  My other boy doesn't yet understand why he needs my help.  He'd rather chew at the cardboard than willingly hand over his treat for two seconds.  Whenever it's time to push up his ice cream, he grips it tight and puts up a fight against me even though my motive is completely for his benefit.  I never take the ice cream for myself, I only obtain the Push Up in order to make it possible for my boys to have more ice cream.  So they don't have to resort to gnawing on soggy cardboard.

This remin…
