Jesus Is The Gift

By Jenna Devotions Leave a comment

Come, let’s leave behind our frenzied to-do lists for a moment and take a deep breath. Let’s push past the rushing roadways of check-out lines, late night scotch tape battles and tangled twinkle-light meltdowns to find a quiet place. Let’s step lightly onto an unmarked holy field of snow-white wonder where grace was born. Let’s kneel down and gaze into the […]

Jesus Sets Us Free

By Jenna Devotions Leave a comment

As Social Media blew up first over the “Red Cup” Controversy, then over the refugee crisis Christians in America have publicly wrestled with the question,  “Who are we?” As Christ followers, as His Church, as His Bride? This week we debated coffee, next week it will be something else, but in moments of discussion and decision, how do we […]

God Shows Up

By Jenna Devotions 2 Comments

When was the last time you felt so overwhelmed with circumstances you frantically looked around for a way of escape? In moments like those we can get desperate. So desperate we might just jump on the first opportunity of “escape” that walks by. But if we are too hasty, we may miss something very powerful. We may miss the experience […]

Jesus is the Hero!

By Jenna Devotions 6 Comments

Do you enjoy a good story?  What if I said that right now you are part of the most epic story mankind has ever seen? I’m convinced that we were created with an intense inner craving for good stories; to hear them and to be part of them. Stories capture the pathos and pain, the passion and persistence of the […]

God Is Good

By Jenna Devotions Leave a comment

Life has moments that take your breath away… And moments that suck the life right out of you. Yet in every season, both in the ups and the downs, there is a truth that holds us steady: God is Good. Oh, I know…Sometimes its not easy to see His goodness. Sometimes anger, fear, sorrow, shame, exhaustion, frustration, or apathy cover this truth […]

God Unifies

By Jenna Devotions Leave a comment

“How good and pleasant it is when brothers live together in unity!  It is like precious oil poured on the head, running down on the beard, running down on Aaron’s beard, down upon the collar of his robes.  It is as if the dew of Hermon were falling on Mount Zion,  For there the Lord […]

God Is Big

By Jenna Devotions 3 Comments

God Is Big: Big enough. Bigger than. Big and strong. We probably all know this is true, but are we actually living like this is true? He is big enough to handle our fears, our pain, our anger.  He is bigger than any problem, danger or concern.  He is big and strong when we feel weak and tired and small. […]

God Pursues The Lost

By Jenna Devotions Leave a comment

Have you ever felt lost?  I know I have. But in the lost moments of life God whispers an invitation deep into our hearts, “My child, let yourself be found.”  And He doesn’t stop until we are held, whole and treasured; …This God whose love is deeper than the sea, taller than the mountains and wider than the sky, loves your every breath. Every one […]

God is In Control

By Jenna Devotions Leave a comment

  Don’t you just love old doors? The thing about the big ol’ door in this picture is that it’s completely shut tight.  When was the last time you experienced a door closing in your life? What jumps out at me from the last few days of Life Journal readings is that sometimes when a door seems to close, God’s not […]

Fear and Faith: God is With You

By Jenna Devotions Leave a comment

First steps are always the hardest.  This post, this blog, this idea is a first little step for me.   I’m embarking on a journey to read through the Bible and chronicle what God teaches me along the way.  Because how wonderfully true it is that He speaks to us in His Word.  Every. Single. Day.  If we’ll […]
