Read Proverbs 10:19 (http://bit.ly/2raXHxN)

If you’re like me, this scripture can come as a bit of a blow to your ego. I talk a lot. I love engaging in conversation. The Bible says that, from the fullness of the heart the mouth speaks, and my heart is pretty full.

There is nothing wrong with talking though, Jesus talked. It is when the tongue is not controlled, where it causes havoc. Whether it’s through lies, social media or from a heart that’s set on bringing hurt and destruction.

The writer talks about being sensible; know where your heart is, and God’s view on issues – and then speak.



The new Jumanji movie is hilarious!
I loved it!

These teenagers get sucked into a video game and are given unique and special talents. Some of them don’t seem that great. But throughout the movie, we see how each one is given those talents for a specific reason and they all come in handy at some point.

Isn’t this an amazing picture of how God gives each of us talents and gifts too, and how every single one is precious? That’s why community is so important; God designed all of our talents to work together!

Read Romans 12:2-8 (http://bit.ly/2GrwmSZ).



I remember being the lone voice in high school to stand and say “No! We will not do this.” I remember seeing unethical practices at my first job and telling the boss “This is wrong”. It felt like standing on a cliff-edge of doom but hearing Jesus saying “Jump! I’ve got you.”

Check out Psalm 46 (http://bit.ly/2SMeZgN)

Following Jesus may take you to places that are dark and scary. So shine – after all, light belongs in dark places. Where He leads, He enables. That may mean some recharging time in the strong tower of his Word.

Hebrews 10:35 (http://bit.ly/2SMWFnD)



True Love

“Baby, if you love me, then you’ll sleep with me” This popular line tries to manipulate people into doing things to prove their love. Is this true love? Seriously?

God selflessly turns that around and says “Because I love you, I will do something for you. I will sacrifice myself for you.”

“But it was our sins that did that to Him, that ripped and tore and crushed Him – our sins! He took the punishment, and that made us whole. Through His bruises we get healed” Isaiah 53:5 (http://bit.ly/2yFUp8y).

Now that’s real love! Thank Him for His love right now.
