A Loving Voice
by Devon McCoy on March 20th, 2021
I don’t doubt that God speaks. I don’t doubt that God speaks to me. I doubt that He speaks kindly. Ultimately, I doubt that He speaks in love. As a practice, I want to go through 1 Corinthians 13:4-7. I want to cast light on doubt’s shadows. I invite you to pray and process through this passage with me. We understand from 1 John 4:8 that God is love. Therefore, His character is all of these things...  Read More
Starlight and Wonder: Sensing His Voice and His Spirit
by Devon McCoy on March 10th, 2021
I don’t think I have ever known a time where I didn’t feel as though the Lord wasn’t showing me something about Himself.  I remember being five years old, looking at the stars, and marveling at our wondrous creator.  I can’t exactly explain it or tell you how this natural wonder was born. I like to think I have always been pretty introspective and contemplative, but the knowing that comes from the...  Read More

Love is Returning
by Devon McCoy on September 21st, 2020
Every Tuesday morning, Wesley’s staff gathers to pray over what we feel like God is doing in the ministry, the campus, and the world at large. At our first 7:30 Prayer in August, the first one we’d had since March, I sat for a moment and asked God what His heart behind this year was, what He wanted to do. And I saw the phrase “love is returning” appear in my mind’s eye. Like a neon sign flashing o...  Read More
An Ignited Hunger
by Devon McCoy on September 18th, 2020
This week, we are harkening back to our past. The blogs this week have been written by past directors who are a part of Wesley’s rich history partnering with God.  Even now, we have opportunity to step into more of what God was doing then. We are “re-digging the wells of our fathers” (Genesis 26:18). Re-digging Wells of The Holy Spirit Have you ever sat in the backseat of your own car?Car parked, ...  Read More
