Betrayed.

Have you ever been betrayed? Betrayal stings the most when it comes from someone you love, someone you have trusted, someone who is closest to you. The dictionary defines betray as “being given over to an enemy” or “to be unfaithful to a friend”. In the very definition of betray is the idea that aContinue Reading

Oneness.

What if we could operate as one? Can you imagine a world where Christ followers left comparison and competition behind. A world where pride and judgement is exchanged for humility and compassion? What could we accomplish if we were more concerned about caring for each other then looking good? This is the prayer of JesusContinue Reading

In Tandem

Read John 16 The Trinity can be a confusing concept and understandably so. Three separate entities, one God. All with different jobs and characteristics, but at the same time they all share traits – there is overlap tying them all together. People try to explain it using analogies like an apple – the seeds, skinContinue Reading

Abide

Read John 15 There is so much to do in a day. So many choices we have to make about how to spend our time, there is no way we can do everything that clamors at us. Life can be overwhelming. I used to think everything could be balanced. Balance is a subliminal message fromContinue Reading

Comfort.

Read John 14 I have four girls. Sometimes I look at them all lined up and I am surprised. Four. Girls. This means there is a lot of sweetness, sparkles, glitter, clicking of high heels, dress up dresses, love and wailing. When my girls have pain, everyone knows about it on our street. 99% ofContinue Reading

Pictures of Grace.

Read John 13 My second born, Olivia, does everything with passion. When she is angry, you know it. When she is happy, you know it. When she feels love, you definitely know it. She doesn’t do anything halfway but gives %150 all the time. Sometimes when I look at Olivia I wonder if Iam lookingContinue Reading

A Sign.

Read John 12 So often I hear of people looking for miracles. We desire to see the supernatural amidst the ordinary. Even beyond miracles we see people exploring the mystical and magical. I believe this is the living out of Ecclesiastes 3 where it says that “God has set eternity in the hearts of man”Continue Reading

Jesus is God.

Read John 11 Jesus time to lay his life down and fulfill his purpose here on earth is getting closer and so are his statements about who he is. The things he is choosing to do now are all directly related to revealing himself as one with his Father, God. He is consistently pointing towardContinue Reading

Shepherd.

I get the sheep analogy when it comes to humans. We all are either following each other around or wandering off getting ourselves into trouble. I often look at situations and think, why and then I think, sheep. Path of least resistance, go with the crowd, don’t make a fuss. Our human mentality is thatContinue Reading

Blindness.

Read John 9. Sight is valuable. I especially notice how much I value my ability to see when I can’t. I have pretty bad eyesight and on top of that I am in desperate need of a new prescription. I am most reminded of my need for a new prescription when I am trying toContinue Reading

Join me throughout the month of July in a 21 day study of the book of John.

It is in the pages of John that we meet Jesus, his heart for the people he came to save and his mission on earth. It is this example that propels us forward to live a life following him by faith.

When you join Grace upon Grace you will receive a short daily email, video encouragement and have access to a longer blog post as you study John chapter by chapter. Interact via my Facebook Community as you intentionally study and prayerfully reflect on what the Holy Spirit has to teach. Excited to see you there!

Love, Steph
