Living Hope
by Devon McCoy on February 24th, 2021
For a few years I struggled with progressive, chronic pain. What started out as severe migraines led to me practically missing a semester of school, stepping down from some of the things that I loved, visits to numerous doctors with the weirdest specialties, and having days where I couldn’t be touched at times because the pain in my body was so severe. I have never contended for something in praye...  Read More
Back to Abiding
by Devon McCoy on December 2nd, 2020
We’ve made it to the Christmas season once again.  To me, this year feels like it was a blur and just flew by.  I can’t believe we’re at Christmas already.  It can be easy to slip into feelings of hopelessness and restlessness in the climate that we’re in, but we get to choose the mindset that we’re living in.  It’s so easy to focus on what we’re missing, what we wish was different, but remember t...  Read More

by Devon McCoy on October 23rd, 2020
One of my favorite verses, which I was challenged to learn in middle school, is James 1:2-4. It reads,“Consider it pure joy my brothers whenever you face trials of many kinds for the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its works so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.”Can I just say that sometimes doing this can be hard? Like, not only should...  Read More
Racial Unity
by Devon McCoy on September 9th, 2020
Unity in God. The phrase alone holds power. Everyone knows that feeling of being a part of something bigger, knowing that you’re needed, yet such a small part of the whole. The Christian body is like that. God allows us to be a part of showing His Kingdom in Heaven here on Earth- something way bigger than us alone. In fact, unity is a vital part. With all of the light that has been shed on racial ...  Read More
