7 Things to Lose to Gain a Life of Purpose in Jesus Christ

A Series by Jill Holler – Introduction Whoever finds their life will lose it, and whoever loses their life for my sake will find it. Matthew 10:39 What would you be willing to lose in order to gain the abundant life of purpose God created you for? Just how far would you go in your quest to give up everything for the sake of Jesus Christ? The stakes are high…and they are very real. We will either lose our life or we will find it. There is no middle ground. We can give up everything for Jesus Christ or we can store up everything for ourselves. And what we choose will have lasting implications on this earth and for eternity.

Changed By His Grace (1)

My Testimony: Changed by the Grace of God

If you are a follower of Christ, you have a story to tell–a testimony of how God changed you from the inside out and impacted your life forever. Most likely, your story has not been based on your own personal successes, but on God leading you toward victory through Jesus Christ during every circumstance of your life. Indeed, my story has nothing to do with my own goodness, but it has everything to do with His. My story is one of rebellion and redemption. Of being lost and then found. Of living without purpose and then finding an abundant, meaningful life. I wonder, What is your story? Most likely, it’s not so different than mine. The details may not be exactly the same, but I Read More

Coming Home: A Story of Grace

Today’s post is a treasure to my heart and a testament to the power of grace. I unearthed it this week as I was digging through some old documents I had saved. I must have written in nearly 15 years ago. And as I began to read the words on the page, I was taken back to that special time and place…to a simple moment with my father when I truly started to understand grace. What a blessing to my soul to read it once again. I truly hope you will enjoy it too. I pray for the blessings of grace to be upon you… Coming Home I raced down the gravel road to my parents’ house, leaving a huge plume of white dust in Read More

Prayer for Children

A Prayer for My Children

Prayer for my Children I pray that my children will love God with their whole hearts and will want nothing more than to live unashamedly and joyfully for Him. I pray they will never grow lukewarm–but instead be filled with a fiery passion to follow their Savior, Jesus Christ, with every bit of strength they have.

I plead for God to help my children turn away from the desires of this world and instead run straight toward the cross of Jesus where true life begins. I pray that they will never run from Him in order to follow the Read More

Hill 3

Climbing the Hill

Climbing Hills I ran up a hill today. And I didn’t even stop up at the top. I just kept on running. That’s simply not like me. I do enjoy a nice walk in the morning, but I’m not a huge fan of running up hills while my heart pounds wildly and sweat rolls down my back. That’s just not my favorite thing in life. So as far as I can tell, it must have been the hand of God that started pushing me up that hill because I had no idea my legs were going to kick it into high gear. I just took off running, and then after a few seconds I thought to myself, “Oh my gosh, I am actually running!” I was Read More
