Finding Hope in the Valley 

By Lauren Bowerman  
Originally Published in Be Still Magazine, Issue 9  

The next best thing to living in the light of the Lord’s love is to be unhappy til we have it, and to pant hourly after it…when it is as natural for us to long for God as for an animal to thirst, it is well with our souls, however painful our feelings.

Where is God When My Life Doesn’t Go As I Planned?

By Kristyn Perez 
Former 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. …

The Groom We Need

By Joy Lopes 
Staff Writer for The Daily Grace Co. 

How often do we think about the church as a bride in desperate need of a groom? This imagery is all throughout Scripture, just take a look at Hosea. So maybe you think about this every day, but I know I could use the reminder in my propensity to forget how needy I am.…
