Walking Barefoot

The whole world is a sacrament that points us to the reality of God. Everywhere we place our foot is holy. When we look with the eyes of faith, God shows himself in our lives and in our world in ways both powerful and quiet. This song is from our album by the same name, Walking Barefoot.


There is Always Joy!

There is Always Joy!Paul’s Letter to the Jesus Believers at Philippi
(Bite-Sized Studies Through the Book of Philippians)
by Jeff Doles

PAUL was in prison. The Jesus believers at Philippi were facing increasing persecution. Add to that an undercurrent of personal disagreements and division in the fellowship, and things were not looking very bright. Yet Paul said, “Rejoice in the Lord always.” There is always joy, and in his letter to the church at Philippi, Paul shows us how to find it.

Joy saturates this letter. It shows up in unexpected turnarounds in the midst of difficult circumstances. It is found in knowing Jesus in His humble, self-giving servanthood, in the power of His resurrection — and even in the fellowship of His suffering. It is discovered as together we pursue the Jesus-shaped life. More ...


The Focus of Our Faith

There is Always Joy!Paul’s Letter to the Jesus Believers at Colosse
(Bite-Sized Studies Through the Book of Colossians)

That is what Paul’s letter to the Jesus believers at Colosse is about. More ...


Personal Confessions from the Psalms

Personal Confessions from the PsalmsPrayers and Affirmations for a Life of Faith, Happiness and Awe in God


The psalms of the Bible are powerful expressions of the heart of faith in covenant with God, and of the heart of God in covenant with His people. Confessing the psalms is simply speaking in agreement with them, and is a great way to meditate on, personalize and instruct your soul with the truths and promises they bring.

The personal confessions in this book are adapted from the psalms. They are defibrillations to shift your heart into the rhythms of faith, to recalibrate your thoughts and emotions with the promises of God and realign your will with the heart of God. But don’t just read them. Find a place where you can say them out loud and maybe even shout them out with passion. Let them go up with a whoop and a holler to God, with the velocity of faith, and watch what happens in your heart and in your life. More ...
