What About that Jesus Devotional Brant

SO WHAT ABOUT THAT JESUS

Last year made me do something strange: A character study of Jesus.  I write stage plays and musicals. When I embark on a new project, character studies are the first things I do.  Who is this character? What’s the character’s motivation?What are the character’s tendencies and quirks?  When I figure out who the person is,…

You're Not Alone in Your Struggles

God Is With You in the Midst of Struggles

I have so much fun talking with you.  Most afternoons, I share “One Truth” on my radio show as a daily dose of hope and inspiration. Not too long ago, I shared one that said, “Never be afraid or embarrassed to struggle! We’ve all been in a struggle. There is absolutely no shame in working hard…

When Your Plan Isn’t God’s Plan

We had plans. They weren’t fancy— but still…there was a plan.  After work, my husband and I were to take care of some adulting stuff—mapping out finances, thinking through schedules, and making dinner— including the beets and carrots that were freshly harvested from our backyard garden. We went to bed, knowing the next day’s plan…and…

Questioning God

The One Remaining Question

Very recently, I read about the latest church-celebrity “I’m-not-a-Christian-anymore” social media post when my insightful friend Sherri asked me a question:  “Hey, did he ever mention Jesus?”  “What?” “Did he mention Jesus in his ‘goodbye’ post? I noticed the last guy didn’t… the celebrity pastor. Did this one mention Jesus?” I skimmed it again.  Why…

Trusting God's Leading Brenda Goodbye Devotion

Trusting God’s Leading

“Follow your dreams and go for it!” is what my Dad always used to say to me.  My Mom grew up near Luzon, Philippines and she used to talk to me about her adventures to the big city of Manilla.  My parents inspired me to travel, live life, and go on as many adventures as I can.  …

Cast Your Burdens On Your Father

How do we react when we feel overwhelmed by problems? How do we respond when we feel discouraged or hopeless?  This past week was especially tough on my family and yours. We all have the 20th anniversary of 9/11, Tropical Storm Ida, COVID-19, Afghanistan, and countless other things on our minds. This was amplified by seeing our…

Love One Another devotion

LOVE ONE ANOTHER

We all struggle sometimes, but isn’t it great when God shows up in the middle of it? One of my best friends, Tonya, lives in Texas and works several jobs to pay the bills. One of her side gigs is waitressing. The other day, she received a note with a pretty large tip and I wanted to share her…

Amid loss God is faithful devotion.

No Matter What We’ve Lost God is Faithful

No matter how much was lost, God’s promise to you is that He will work it all out. Sometimes it’s hard to see the good. I get that. I’ve had a lot of bad days (years even) and the only thing that’s gotten me through them all is focusing on the good. You know, I’m a silver lining…

Feeling a million miles away from God devotion.

Feeling A Million Miles Away from God?

The government has been taking photos of us. A few years ago, NASA’s Cassini Telescope snapped this photo of you and me, as the telescope approached Saturn. The brighter blue dot near the center of the photo is us – planet earth! It’s easy to look at a photo like this and be impressed with…
