God's Character

But Is He Kind?

By Joanna Kimbrel 
Staff Writer for The Daily Grace Co. 

“The Lord is righteous in all His ways.” These words from Psalm 145:17 have often been a comfort to me. A reassuring reminder in the midst of brokenness. I look around and see circumstances that are out of my control, injustice that appears unrighted, and events whose purposes I cannot understand.…

Can God Spread a Table in the Wilderness?

By Sarah Morrison 
Originally Published in Be Still Magazine, Issue 13 

For several weeks I have been studying Ecclesiastes. It’s been an extremely confusing time in our lives recently and it has served me well to think critically and mediate on wisdom, the chaos and uncertainty of this life, and the assurance that a life filled with faithfulness to God is never wasted or futile; it is prudent and a good use of wisdom to live in a way that all actions and hopes are founded on the Lord.…

The Silencing of Tamar

By Aubrey Coleman
Staff Writer for The Daily Grace Co. 

Through a seminary course reading assignment, I was first introduced to the story of Tamar in 2 Samuel 13. I was surprised that I’d never read or heard of this passage in the Bible.…

Present Troubles, Glorious Future

By Stefanie Boyles 
Staff Writer for The Daily Grace Co. 

I can’t help but think, “Someone is going to make a movie about COVID-19 one day.” It feels surreal. At the moment, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is recommending 8 weeks of social distancing, which means we should strive to stay 6-feet away from people outside of our immediate families.…

How Can a Loving God Allow People to go to Hell?

By Stefanie Boyles
Staff Writer for The Daily Grace Co. 

I recently found myself telling my daughter (age 6), “There’s no such thing as a dumb question.” I wanted to encourage and engage her curiosity. Like most families, we strive to protect wonder and curiosity and open communication in our home. We enjoy hearing our kids’ questions, even when the occasional incessant string of “why’s” has the potential to drive a person mad. This is because questions are powerful.…

Amazing Grace

By Stefanie Boyles
Staff Writer for the Daily Grace Co.

I don’t know about you, but when I was growing up in the church in the late ‘90s and early 2000s, the gospel presentation seemed to have a “hook-and-bait” feel. The riches of God’s grace and love were presented, and I was beckoned to come feast at the banquet of God’s forgiveness of my sins.…

Where is God When my Life Doesn't Go as I Planned?

By Kristyn Perez 
Lamp and Light Leader for The Daily Grace Co. 

Have you ever felt forgotten by God? Have you ever experienced betrayal? Do you feel like your life is not what you expected it to be 

Too often as women we stuff our feelings and doubts deep within our souls, but in the quiet moments of the night the question nags at us: “Where is God when my life doesn’t go as I thought it would?” Recently, I’ve been meditating on the story of Joseph and wrestling through these questions.

“In the year King Uzziah died I saw the Lord sitting on a throne, high and lifted up, and His train filled the temple.” – Isaiah 6:1

In our times of grief and desperation, that is often when we most need a vision of the Lord.…
