When our plans are shipwrecked like Paul on Malta, God still has a plan—his is always about people. He’s never surprised, he’s always in control, and he works all things into good.
We often treat prayer as though it’s a mere spiritual discipline, but prayer is an act of love where you’re heard, God makes things happen, and you make a connection with your creator!
We complicate our Christianity by focusing on how we love Jesus rather than how he loves us. He’s chosen us, he’s our friend, and we’re going to bear fruit. Abide in him.
When we stress and strive, we feel separated from God, who designed our relationship to be organic and intimate. We can’t see our futures or understand everything in this life, but we can trust the one who holds it all!
When we add traditions, performance, or “wisdom” to our connection to God, we over complicate things! He’s the vine, we are the branches, and our relationship is designed to be intimate and organic!
Soul fatigue comes when we’re dealing with a performance lifestyle, facing personal struggles, or battling principalities and powers. But God is super accessible, loves you, and wants to give you rest!
Why does the famous storm stop after they get in the boat? The storm isn’t about the circumstances we feel; nor is the boat our true source of safety! God relates to storms differently, and Jesus is going to reveal himself in new ways!

We can complicate connecting with God, but he’s the vine, we are the branches, and our relationship is organic! We were designed to connect with Jesus; no striving needed!
