How to Live with No Regrets

                By Inside Out with Courtnaye As you read this post, I want you to look forward, not backwards. I don’t want you to look at what you did already and failed. I don’t want you to look at what you didn’t do in your marriage or past relationships, or how you think you may have failed your children in some way in the past. No doubt, grow from any mistakes that you’ve made, but don’t [...]

Waiting on the Lord

By Inside Out with Courtnaye So many people are waiting on the Lord in our world. Some are waiting for the pain to stop from the loss of a friend or loved one. Some are waiting for someone that they care about dearly to come out of the hospital, healed. Some are waiting for their adult children to be saved or make wiser choices in life or for patience and strength as they raise small children or teenagers. There are many who are [...]

What to Do in a Dry Place

Or maybe you’re reading this because you’d like to know more about what to do in this particular condition. Well, in either case, I believe the Lord has led you to the right place and at just the right time. So, let’s talk about the wilderness experience and what to do when you’re in it. For starters, I’m going to begin [...]

Pressing Through Ministry Responsibilities

By Inside Out with Courtnaye For starters, I want to ask you do you volunteer, work, or serve in your local church? Do you run your own ministry (i.e. non-profit organization, blog, brand, or social media platform)? If you answered yes to any of these examples, then I want to encourage you to keep reading, because this is the post for you dear co-laborer. I want to speak directly to pressing through ministry responsibilities when you’re feeling overwhelmed, overworked, or maybe even a [...]

Studying the Letters of the Bible

By Inside Out with Courtnaye Looks like you're interested in studying the letters of the Bible. I love it! I believe if you embarked upon a study of the letters of the Bible, you will not only experience a greater knowledge of God’s Word, but you’ll also gain greater insight on how we are to live and stand for the Gospel. You’ll understand even more what it means to be chosen, and why it’s so important that you walk in the Spirit, live [...]

Following God’s Direction

By Inside Out with Courtnaye Where are you today? Are you at a crossroad as it relates to direction? Are you trying to figure out which decision to make on something pretty major in your life? Are you needing God’s direction right now? And lastly, what is it? Whatever it is, pause and pray. Ask God to show you clearly what you need to do. But when He reveals it to you, follow His direction. Don’t waver, because He’s faithful to give you the [...]

Waiting in Faith

By Inside Out with Courtnaye What are you waiting in faith for, sis? I’d love to know and hear from you about it. Are you waiting for a godly husband? Are you waiting on a new job or promotion? How about a new ministry or business to take off? Or maybe it’s salvation for your child, family member, boss, co-worker or friend. Maybe you’re waiting in faith for God to move on your behalf in some way. Spiritually, for me, I’m waiting in [...]

Journal It, Sister!

By Inside Out with Courtnaye I’m going to kick this post off by asking, do you journal? The phrase journal writing is described as the process of recording personal insights, reflections and questions or personal topics. As Christian women, I would add that it’s a great way to write out your thoughts, ideas, pour out your heart to God, what’s going on in your personal life, and prayers. It’s a just another way to express your thoughts privately between you and Him. Personally, I LOVE [...]

Believing What God Says

By Inside Out with Courtnaye I don’t know where you are on this topic, but if you clicked onto it, it’s either because you need someone to tell you to believe what God says or maybe it’s because you want to encourage someone else with this message. In either case, it’s okay. I just felt led by the Holy Spirit to tell you to believe what God says about you and about what He’s called you to do. Sometimes you just need the [...]

What Needs to Come Off of Your Plate?

  By Inside Out with Courtnaye Have you ever felt like you just had too much on your plate? Too many things on the To-Do-List, too many errands to run in one day, too many commitments, too many responsibilities, too many people pulling on you, too many yes(s)? If you have, then I totally get you, sis! Because I have definitely been there. That’s when I had to get to a place in my life where I said, “Some things have got to [...]
