Do You Ever Feel Like a Failure at Christianity?

God is in the business of making you perfect until the day you die. No hopelessness allowed in this life raft.

Mirror Mirror on the…

We have short term memory when it comes to our identity, and the only solution is found in pursuing God’s truth and seeking to implement it in our lives.

Called to Action

By Lydia Sellers >>> I was abruptly interrupted while praying a couple weeks ago. As I poured emotional word vomit in “prayer” format, the Holy Spirit stopped me and suggested I ask if He had anything to say. As I quieted my soul and chose to listen, I heard Him say something a bit unexpected….

He’d Rather Die Than Live Without You

By Lydia Sellers Jesus was the first to place value on humanity. He sacrificed His own life for the sake of ours. God sacrificed God for people. I don’t think we always understand the significance of this. God, in His great mercy, decided you were so valuable and so important to Him that He would…

No Hiding Out

By Lydia Sellers I can’t word it any better than the Word, so let’s dive right into some scripture: “For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord.” – Ephesians 5:8 Ephesians 5 continues saying, “Walk as children of light . . . for anything that becomes visible is light. Therefore…

Poem: Seeing Through Dust

Seeing Through Dust By Lydia Sellers Our value is determined by what’s inside our hearts. We’re not physical attributes, political attitudes, or potential aptitudes. Categories, categories, stereotypes. Who are we? Are we not human? Or are we to decease as projects of the era? When will compassion no longer be a slogan? Will we see…

Forgive my excuses…

By Lydia Sellers On a daily basis, we make up excuses to defend ourselves of our mistakes. “I was late because it was a difficult day at work, and my alarm went off, but I fell back asleep, …” etc.  Everything in our beings says, “No! It wasn’t my fault!” It’s like we want to…

The nations rage, the kingdoms totter; he utters his voice, the earth melts.” Psalm 46:5-6 By Lydia Sellers I transferred to a new university this fall and was hit with deep loneliness as I tried turning foreign…

Bitter-sweet?

By Lydia Sellers Bitter. Not a pleasant word. Ever bitten into a piece of fruit expecting pure succulence, but instead got a slap as sour juice hit your tongue? You can’t get rid of the awful tang until you eat something else. Some people have the same effect. In fact, some Christians have the same…

Devo: PK with doubts.

By Lydia Sellers I thought, “Lord, if your Word is true, why can’t I see the evidence of it in my life?” I’m a pastor’s daughter . . . and I’ve had doubts. Honestly, it’s been a  long time since I’ve really accepted the Word of God. The tiniest bits  of confusion and doubt have plagued…

Devo: Innocent, I am not

By Lydia Sellers We all want to feel innocent. It’s a plain fact. I don’t think it’s bad. No, it’s very good that we have this desire because God desires to purify us. In fact, he sent his one and only Son to pay the penalty for our sins just so we may be covered,…

Guest Post: Please don’t be safe

By Lydia Sellers Safety and wisdom can coexist, but they aren’t equivalent. It seems like older generations are constantly advising us on how to go through life safely, but warnings and reprimands are worthless if the intention is to protect us from getting hurt. Fact is, we will get hurt, it’s inevitable. Sometimes life just…
