Getting out of bed can be a struggle on a Monday morning, but how do you cope when the struggle persists to the next day and then the next? Professor and author Alan Noble has personal experience with the struggle and considers with us how to carry on amidst our great suffering. He shares how making the next right choice has throughout the day has helped him through difficult seasons and see the gift of living.
One of the biggest struggles in life is to keep our thoughts tethered to truth. How do we discern God’s voice over the lies of the enemy? Author Judy Dunagan has felt stuck in the same fears, temptations, and lies, but she has experienced victory in Christ. Judy will point us to the incredible power, majesty, and authority of our Lord Jesus in whom we can overcome and stand firm in faith rather than give way to fear.
