7 Bible Verses to Renew Your Strength

by Katy Kauffman


What do you love about the book of Psalms? The heartfelt cries of David and others, the promises of comfort, or the chronicle of how God faithfully helped those who were in distress? What I love the most about Psalms is what I learned about God. I “saw” that He was both loving and formidable, that He cares when one of His own suffers, and that He has the power to crush every enemy that comes against us.


Understanding the character and nature of God gives us strength. We know what we can count on Him to be and to do. We understand that He has great power and He is willing to use it on our behalf. When the book of Psalms—or any other book of the Bible—talks about God as our strength, we can be certain that we will have a strength that does not falter and an endurance that does not waver. The strength of God is our lifeline to handle our daily battles and to accomplish God’s will for our lives.

If You Need Some Grace

by Katy Kauffman

I’ve always thought grace was a beautiful word, something I want to name my daughter if I should have one in the future. God’s goodness is often clothed as grace for each day's challenges and adventures.   


Grace climbs mountains, endures storms, prays for the impossible, and walks with God. Grace faces life’s challenges and trusts God for victory. Grace doesn’t give up. Doesn’t quit.

Don't Quit

Today as I design our August issue of Refresh, I want to share with you a poem that’s helped me. Written by Jill Wolf, it’s an encouragement to keep going and keep trying.

What assignment has God given you to do? Don’t stop short of completing it.

What amazing good is God working in your life? Don’t give up on the process.

What blessings can you give to those around you? Don’t rob them of a surprise joy.

What promises are you waiting on God to fulfill? Don’t be afraid they won’t happen.

Keep trusting, keep working, and keep waiting.
