Nothing Fit for a King, But Our Praise

I’ve been trying to take a walk every day both for exercise and to focus my heart on The Lord. I’m having to walk earlier and earlier in the day as the temperature is finally reaching the “warm” zone and I find myself going back again and again to listen to the song “Gratitude” by […]

Praying As God’s Beloved

Recently, the Lord has been “echoing” the importance and power of prayer to my heart; about praying as God’s “beloved.” I wouldn’t consider myself a “good prayer.” My prayers aren’t particularly eloquent. They’re often short and poorly worded. For this reason I have often been hesitant to pray aloud in front of others. Spontaneous prayer […]

5 Ways to Make Daily Bible Study Easier

Have you ever tried to make daily Bible study a habit? Habits can be both hard to form and hard to break. Going to the gym daily, that’s not an easy habit for everyone to get into. On the flip side, eating ice cream every night on the couch watching Netflix can be a hard […]

Are We Looking for Jesus? Do We Recognize Him?

On Sunday we celebrated Jesus’ resurrection from the dead. The miracle and truth that all Christianity hinges upon. But today, several days later are we still living in that truth? Are we looking for Jesus, everywhere, always? And when Jesus shows up, do we recognize Him? In Luke’s Gospel, following the women finding the tomb […]

We Have a God Problem

We want to be God and We’re Not. This world is broken. People are flawed. We choose sin because it feels good. We deny truth because we don’t like it. Like the Israelites in the Old Testament, we are a rebellious and stiff necked people. We want things to be our way, go our way, […]

Graphic that reads: "The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning, great is your faithfulness."

{Video} Bible Bites with Liz: His Mercies are New Every Morning

In this short video I’ll share with you a little about my daily Bible study process and give you some background on the prophet Jeremiah and what was happening as he wrote the Book of Lamentations. Despite his difficult circumstances, the prophet Jeremiah remained faithful to the Lord and encouraged himself and us, thousands of […]

New Book Review: Every Woman a Theologian

“Theology” can be an intimidating word. In her new book, Every Woman a Theologian, author and Bible teacher Phylicia Masonheimer makes Christian theology approachable and understandable, so as the subtitle says, you can “Know What you Believe. Live It Confidently. Communicate It Graciously. It isn’t an “easy” read, but it isn’t difficult either. Phylicia blends […]

Why Are We Always Hopping a Plane to “Egypt?”

Mark Twain famously said, “Denial ain’t just a river in Egypt.” Sometimes we find it easier to live in denial of the truth than to accept it, so we hop planes to “Egypt.” The truth isn’t always pretty. It’s not always what we want to hear. The situation gets even more uncomfortable when the truth […]

I Recently Changed My Name

I changed my name because I got married – more than 19 years ago!!  It’s sort of a long story, but it involves a life that got too busy and a heart that was too proud. I liked my maiden name (Langford). I was used to it. I’m adopted and it always felt like one […]

Lent Through a Different Lens

I grew up Catholic. Like really Catholic. Not Latin mass Catholic, but go-to-church every Sunday no matter where you are in the world Catholic. Want to go on a trip somewhere but you won’t be able to make it to mass on Sunday, then you “can’t go Catholic.” Looking back at my parent’s devotion to […]

The World Is Starving Spiritually

As I’m watching the revival happening at Asbury University (and the other college campuses it is spreading to), I keep thinking how “hungry” these young people are for God. How much they are craving closeness to Jesus. The world is starving spiritually.  We have looked for sustenance in places, ideas and people who cannot feed […]

"For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God. The spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship. And by him we cry, "Abba, Father." The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God's children."

ROMANS 8: 14-16, ESV

“A quiet heart is content with what God gives.”
