Run to the Father

Cody Carnes sings about going to Christ when carrying a burden and when we are exhausted, in the song “Run to the Father”. In Matthew 11:28 ( Jesus says the same thing – “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest”.

This ‘rest’ might not be sleep or a quick nap but can be rest in your soul that quiets any stress, anxiety or feelings of deep exhaustion. So, do you need rest? Run to the Father who gives you the rest you need.



This is my fight song

Fight song by Rachel Platten is a song I blast through my bluetooth speakers on those days I feel extremely unmotivated. I blast it even more on the days I feel like giving up. But in the same way this song inspires me, Psalm 27:3 ( gives me strength and motivation to fight any battle Satan plots against me.

Despite how tired, unmotivated or defeated you may feel, hold that verse close to your heart as a reminder that you can be confident in any fight. Your powerful and strong God is fighting the battle for you and He’s already won.



A Pocketful of Sunshine

This song by Natasha Bedingfield, A Pocketful of Sunshine, is a very upbeat song that seems to speak only about one thing – lots and lots of joy. But she isn’t the only one who has access to this kind of joy. In fact, we all are able to experience an even greater amount of joy through Jesus Christ.

Read 1 Peter 1:8 (

Joy isn’t something we feel, like happiness. It’s something we experience, even with all the other things we might be feeling – sadness, anger, worry and even happiness. Joy comes from Jesus. Seek Him for your pocketful of sunshine.




“I don’t believe you.”

“I swear, it’s true! I saw Him with my own eyes!”

“So did I. I saw Him when Judas betrayed Him with a kiss. I saw Him when He faced Pilate. I saw Him when He was whipped and carrying His cross. I saw Him hanging there. And I saw Him die! It’s not true.”

“But it is. I promise you it’s true. I really saw Him. So did everyone else.”

“You’re all just imagining it!”


“Peace be with you.”

“JESUS! You’re here!”

“…my Lord and my God!”
