How Job Changes Impact Calling

“The more we let God take us over, the more truly ourselves we become - because He made us. He invented us. He invented all the different people that you and I were intended to be. . .It is when I turn to Christ, when I give up myself to His personality, that I first begin to have a real personality of my own.” -- C.S. Lewis Like me, perhaps you have endured seasons of job changes and career pivots--twists and turns in the road to making a living.

Tribute to a Friend and Colleague

This fall we lost a precious friend, colleague and fellow traveler on God's journey to finding our place in God's story. Shannon Brasher served as our director of social media, making valuable contributions every day to the ministry's growth. Her path prior to joining Alliance was an arduous and painful journey through personal brokenness and addiction. It was also a life of tremendous courage and beautiful redemption as she overcame these obstacles

Combat the Lie: My Past Disqualifies Me

You love the Lord and want to serve Him with the gifts, strengths, and passion He has given you.  But because of past failures, you believe the lie: “My past disqualifies me from opportunities to serve God.”   But the truth is, the scars of your past often qualify you for God’s present purpose for your life! As a child of God, one who has been redeemed by Jesus Christ, you have also been redeemed from your past.  In fact, God’s word says,

Combat the Lie: “Too Old to be of Use to God”

Are you still breathing?  If the answer to that very basic question is, “yes,” then you are not too old to be of use in God’s story!   You may have retired from your place of employment; you may be an empty nester, and may be a widow or widower; but God has a place and a purpose for your life right here, right now. “Those who are planted in the house of the Lord shall flourish in the courts of our God.  They shall still bear fruit in

I Was Made for This!

If you have ever experienced absolute joy and satisfaction in the midst of circumstances, a project, or another opportunity, prompting you to say, at least in your heart, “I was made for this,” then you understand what it’s like to discover your calling. The first time I invited a group of young women to my home for Bible Study and fellowship, I could not contain my excitement as I prepared for the first gathering.  My time in God’s Word

Be Still, and Know…A Day Alone with God

Our calendars betray what we believe about boundaries.  We know the importance of spending time with family and friends, and we talk about planning more time with God, but we get busy with day to day routines at school, or work, or church, and we are simply too tired to give any more, to anyone at the end of our day.   Even the subject of taking a break or getting away puts most of us on the defensive.  It confronts our difficulty with discipline,

Warfare in the Midst of Calling

You can know for certain that if God has a plan and purpose for your life, and He does, that the enemy – Satan, the world system, and your flesh – are out to destroy that plan and purpose.   The enemy hates God and those He loves.  If you are a child of God, you are a target for the enemy’s lies and schemes. As Christ followers we can’t escape this ongoing spiritual battle.  Rather, God has chosen to allow us the experiences to grow us,

God’s Bigger Purpose in Friendships

< C.S. Lewis said, “Is any pleasure on earth as great as a circle of Christian friends by a fire?”   I think not.  Just recently, my husband and I hosted our Bible study group for an afternoon of desserts and beverages.   In the south where we live, good food is a priority for a successful party.   But when the party is over, it is the fellowship that will be remembered, long after the red velvet cake and apple pie are gone. There is

Good Works: To Our Family

If there is one area of my life where I would like to go back in time to “re-set” my priorities, make different choices, and love others better, it would be within my family.    The fact is, I can’t go back to change the past, but I can be intentional now, with God’s help, to be the person He designed me to be for my husband, my children and grandchildren, my aging parents, and my extended family. Why do we naturally work so hard to please
