Picture Perfect: The Remedy (Part 3)

A life ruled by our own desires and shaped by what the world tells us is perfection eventually becomes an exhausting life full of disappointment and frustration. In contrast, how radically different it is when the one true Lord rules our lives. When the true Lord rules our lives, we find that his rule is very different. In Matthew 11:28-30, this ruler invites you to come to him and have rest. Continue reading

Picture Perfect: The Root (Part 2)

Facing Anxiety Face-to-Face with Christ

From cover to cover the Bible has much to say about moving from fear to faith. In this post we’ll look at one book—Philippians—and focus on one chapter—chapter 4.

One short epistle and one brief chapter in the Bible have that much relevant counsel about anxiety. I can’t wait to explore the rest of the Word to find truth for life so that I can experience victory in anxiety!” Continue reading
