  • DAWN shared from Unglued Devotional: 60 Days of Imperfect Progress by Lysa TerKeurst
    We live in a broken world full of broken people. But isn’t it comforting to know God is never broken? He isn’t ever caught off guard, taken by surprise, or shocked by what happens next. He can take our worst and add His best. We just have to make the choice to stay with Him and keep following Him through it all.
  • DAWN shared from Let God Change Your Life: How to Know and Follow Jesus by Greg Laurie
    “I have hidden your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you” (Ps. 119:11 NLT). Although it is good to carry a Bible in your briefcase, backpack, or purse, by far the best place to carry God’s Word is in your heart.
  • DAWN shared from The Reason: How I Discovered a Life Worth Living by Lacey Sturm
    The reason we wanted a label that would market us to radio that had no regard for Jesus at all, and the reason we wanted to tour with bands who were atheistic and blasphemous in their lyrics, was because that’s where I would find a hopeless girl like myself looking for her real purpose—someone like my sixteen-year-old self who had tremendous pain in her heart and was overwhelmingly tired of living the life she was living. I wanted with all my heart to go to those places that are an eerie foreshadow of hell—and pull people out.
  • DAWN shared from Anything: The Prayer That Unlocked My God and My Soul by Jennie Allen
    And I belittle the God of the universe by worrying as if he is not really in control.

    What makes a woman tender also reveals her vulnerabilities. What makes a woman transparent also exposes her wounds. What makes a woman authentic also uncovers her insecurities. And there isn’t a woman alive who likes being revealed, exposed, and uncovered.
  • DAWN shared from Unglued Devotional: 60 Days of Imperfect Progress by Lysa TerKeurst
    People aren’t thinking about us and assessing us nearly as much as we think they are. Honestly, they don’t have time. Because they are probably spending too much time thinking about and assessing themselves.
  • DAWN shared from Not a Fan: Becoming a Completely Committed Follower of Jesus by Kyle Idleman
    Have you noticed that when we compare ourselves to others as a way to measure our relationship with Christ we almost always put ourselves up against those who are spiritually anemic?
  • DAWN shared from Unglued Devotional: 60 Days of Imperfect Progress by Lysa TerKeurst
    When faced with a situation out of our control, we need to ask, “Whose side am I on?” Will our response reflect that we are on God’s side or not? If we determine that no matter what we’re on God’s side, it settles the trust issue in our hearts. And if we ground ourselves in the reality that we trust God, we can face circumstances that are out of our control without acting out of control.
  • DAWN shared from Erasing Hell: What God Said about Eternity, and the Things We've Made Up by Francis Chan, Preston Sprinkle
    I often hear people say, “I could never love a God who would …” Who would what? Who would disagree with you? And do things that you would never do? Who would allow bad things to happen to people? Who would be more concerned with His own glory than your feelings? Who would—send people to hell? But this makes about as much sense as the clay looking up at the Potter and saying, “I really think you messed up here, let me show you a better way
  • DAWN shared from Soul Detox: Clean Living in a Contaminated World by Craig Groeschel
    If their words are untrue, mean-spirited, and critical without being constructive, then call them what they are — toxic waste. Reject those words. Don’t let them into your soul. Take out the trash and leave it by the curb. Delete toxic words and insert the truth.
