Where Can You “Refresh” Your Soul?


by Katy Kauffman


When the cases of COVID-19 keep climbing. When nothing in your day seems to be working. When you need cool relief in the middle of a hot summer. That’s when we need some soul-satisfying refreshment, and that’s what God’s Word does for our hearts.


When life creates a thirst within us for the deep things of God, He answers our need with Himself and Scripture. When we need to hear from our heavenly Father, He can speak to us directly, through His Word, through sermons, and through those who love Him. Some of these people write for our magazine, Refresh.

Door Post Verses

by Katy Kauffman

I wanted the eagle so badly I felt like crying. The gorgeous picture of an eagle descending through dark storm clouds—his wings in the shape of a v—made me think of God swooping down to rescue one of His children. I really wanted the picture for my room, but the frame and mat didn’t match my colors. My tender, preteen heart didn’t want to leave the eagle picture behind.

My mom told me that if God wanted me to have the picture, He would provide it with the perfect frame and mat. I reluctantly left the art store, and eventually the eagle shifted to the back of my mind. Then I found it. Hanging in a Christian bookstore, I discovered my eagle encased by a midnight blue marbled mat and fruitwood frame. Perfect. God provided not just the perfect picture but the perfect verse to go with it—a verse that has seen me through dark storms.

influences us in “good,”
teaches us how to have healthy and satisfying relationships,
differentiates between right and wrong, ...

Your White Line

It was the worst fog I’d ever been in. A few nights ago, a lazy cloud settled on the earth, making driving nearly impossible. Visibility was fifteen feet at best, and our car’s high beams only revealed more fog. So slowly our family traveled home, with the car staying close to the only visible sign of direction—the road’s solid white line. Even the double yellow line in the middle of the road was engulfed by fog and the glare of oncoming traffic. What kept us sane and moving forward—that security-giving, nerve-calming white line.
