All for Christ

Interview with Author Norma Gail This week I had the privilege of being interviewed by fellow author Norma Gail. Her questions made me reflect upon my relationship with the Lord and look deeply into the issue of giving everything to Christ. I pray God will help me to live the life He has called me to, and I am praying the same for you. How blessed we are to have our Savior by our side, leading us each step of the way. Here are a few of the questions I addressed in the interview: What new lessons is the Lord teaching you right now? God is teaching me to keep my eyes on Him and nothing else. He is teaching me to let go of Read More

Becoming a Writer

Life in His Hands Author Interview with Martin Wiles I am excited to be joining Love Lines from God today, where author Martin Wiles interviews me about becoming a writer, the creative process of writing, and what it is like to be in the writing business. I hope you’ll join us too! Here’s a sneak peak… Tell us, Jill, when did you decide to become a writer, and what made you actually sit down and write something? Becoming and Author Unlike many authors, I never had dreams of becoming an author as a child or young adult. It was something God revealed to me slowly as I grew in His Word over the past decade.

Life in His Hands: The Journey

My twin sister once told me that God called her to lead Bible studies so that she would actually show up. After I laughed about that for awhile, I added, “God wanted me to write a devotional book so that I would actually start living what I’ve learned!” To me, there is something about hard, cold print that makes me feel the need to be more accountable. I guess the same concept applies to leading Bible studies, only it’s the people, not the print, that makes you feel you had better come through. God knows my sister and me pretty well, and he knows we need a good nudge once in awhile. He also knows it has taken lots of persuading to convince me that Read More

The Race

Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. Hebrews 12:1 Maybe by now you’ve heard I ran up a hill. That’s right…all the way up a hill! When I set my sights on Jesus, he makes me want to start running and never back down. He sets my mind on a course of victory for the glory of his name, and I want to give Him everything I’ve got. I may be in a heap when I cross the finish line, but I will know I have run with purpose; I will know that nothing Read More

Life in His Hands

But I trust in you, LORD; I say, “You are my God.” My times are in your hands. Psalm 31:14-15 To me, there is no greater comfort than knowing that the course of my life is resting in the strong hands of my God. I desperately need to know that someone far greater than me is holding on to my fragile life, directing it with a love and sovereignty that I cannot even comprehend. Without him, I would wander without purpose, alone in my struggles and sorrows, feeling empty and incomplete. Yet the God of the universe chose to take me into his own hands and carry every part of me–burdens and all. No insecurity, sadness, or hardship is too heavy for him to carry. Read More
