O Lord, Teach Us to Pray

By Sara Robbert | November 3, 2020

Forgive us for so often living as though You are not King. Keep us from believing that November third’s outcome is our hope. Remind our forgetful hearts of Your goodness. Lead us away from bitter hearts and divided communities.

He is Sufficient for Us

By Sara Robbert | April 21, 2020

On day 38 of quarantine, I continue to marvel at the selfishness and panic of so many people. It’s been a vivid, sobering reminder of the chaos and sorrow of those who reject Christ. I can’t help but think of when Jesus said it would “be easier for a camel to fit through the eye…

Gospel of Nearness

By Sara Robbert | April 9, 2020

For about a decade now the Spirit has been teaching me that the Gospel is so much more than being saved from sin. It’s more than the promise of “heaven” and it’s more than being recruited for a life of service. The Gospel includes all those things certainly but none of them are the best…

Things I Love For The Nostalgia Factor aka The Blessedly Same

By Sara Robbert | August 12, 2019

I should probably start with a list of what HASN’T changed for me since January 2018. That list would be a lot shorter. Since January 2018 I’ve moved four times, gotten engaged and married, started (and ended) my career as a nanny, and am now, ever so feebly, beginning a new work as a freelance…

Dare to Live Beloved

By Sara Robbert | April 12, 2019

In 2016, Jesus and I set out on a journey of my learning to be kind to myself. In July of that year I wrote, “Be a Friend to Yourself.” In February 2018, I wrote “Be Loved (if You Dare) Now we’re here – April 2019 – and I feel as though I’ve barely taken…

Embracing My Journey with Anxiety

By Sara Robbert | March 4, 2019

I share because I know someone needs to be reminded today that facing our fears and embracing our heart doesn’t always make us feel brave. Sometimes it makes us feel like we’ve actually completely lost our mind this time, but facing that feeling is the real bravery. Sometimes we need another brave, vulnerable human to look us in the eyes and remind us of that.

Smile, Wait, Hold On; 3 Steps in My Mediation Practice

By Sara Robbert | March 1, 2019

“I mediate on Your words all the day long.” – Psalm 119:15 “Be still, and know that I am God.” – Psalm 46:10 “Mary sat at the Lords feet, listening to all He said.” – Luke 10:39 My understanding of meditation in young adulthood was limited to study of scripture. Studying scripture is critical and lays the…

Semantics, dear Watson

By Sara Robbert | January 25, 2019

“You could tell God was active in that church.” “The Holy Spirit is really moving at that youth event.” “We are so thankful to see the Lord show up in this ministry.” I heard versions of these phrases about four zillion times growing up. It was common in the small bible-saturated Indiana town I grew…
