I get up around 5:30 in the morning to go to work. That gives me around an hour to get ready, get out the door, and drive for fifteen minutes. Somehow that snooze button seems more appealing than my YouVersion Bible app. Can you relate?

Welcome to Part 2 of the Navigati...

Some days it takes every ounce of strength in me to get me to open my Bible. Even once it's open, it can be difficult for me to focus--thank you, ADHD. I get so frustrated because it takes so much work for me to connect with God, even though I do this daily.

Can you rel...

What are you struggling with? School? A relationship? The future?

For me, the answer is yes. All of the above. School, because I only have two weeks of class left and my motivation has nearly completely evaporated. Relationships, because community is messy, and it seems...

Covenant.

The Bible Project defines covenant as "an English translation of a Hebrew (berit) and Greek (diatheke) word that describes a formal relationship between two parties who agree to a set of promises so they can work together toward a common goal."

I've been mistreated, misunderstood

I always tried to be so good

With all the chaos, all the darkness, all the pain going on in this world, there is one thing I want you to know:

God wants to be with you. He desires to connect with you. He's not afraid of your baggage. Will you join me in considering the goodness of His heart?

I fought and worked so hard to create a future I thought would be perfect. 

While dating a great guy, I had it all figured out. I knew where he would be working the next year, and I would stay in school. When I would graduate, we could get married. Then I would be the p...

Last year, I kept fiddling around with different song ideas, and the line "craving a breakthrough" showed up every time I did so, then it stuck.

This song is all about being honest with God. Praying honest prayers can be ridiculously difficult, but He can handle whateve...

I like to call this song my "happy little ditty." That is, until it gets to the last verse.

And surely as I live I do know this to be true

Jesus will return and it will be brutal, too

I realize that this probably makes people uncomfortable. To that I say, good. Scripture...

I hate it when I can’t feel God. I absolutely do. My prayers feel wordy and dead, and I don’t feel like reading Scripture. In those seasons, I can’t help but wonder, does God even care? Or, what did I do to deserve this distance? All these people say Christianity isn’t...
