    What is God?
    God is the redemption in my life. God is the forgiveness in my heart. God is the beauty that I see. God is the hope that fills my life. God is the truth I operate with and the wisdom I use for making decisions. God is the love that overflows. God is my inspiration and my purpose for living. And it is only through my own brokenness…

    In the beginning of this year, I was promoted to my first professional managerial position at my company. It was very exciting for me because it’s something that I’ve always wanted to do. Being a leader came naturally to me and I’ve waited quite some time to earn an opportunity to manage in my professional life.

    When I first started, I…

With that as the context, the following post was written by that reader. Read on to learn about the next steps for this reader as she steps out in faith.

    WitnessSF launched with an emphatic boom. When WitnessSF first began in 2011, we really felt the Holy Spirit carrying our team forward. There was a lot of momentum behind the WitnessSF team from our citywide launch event and the initial high traffic we experienced. The WitnessSF staff also became extremely close, like a family put together by God.…

    Our friend Gina shares her broken past and how a desperate prayer changed her life

    It’s been a year and half since I went back to the place I left before finding God.  Eighteen months to be exact. At the time I felt as if I was living and operating out of a prison. My mind and my heart were trapped by my hopelessness. Outwardly this manifested in…

    Editor Jason shares his testimony and how God utilized a broken relationship with his birth father to bring him closer to God.
    “How capable are you?”
    I was chatting with a co-worker the other day and when she casually mentioned the “capabilities of others”, it caught me off-guard.  Once I heard those few words, I couldn’t hear anything else she…

    Our Editor Jimmy shares a story about the heart of a servant.

    This article starts out with a story. Once upon a time, there was a wise king who ruled the greatest kingdom on Earth. As time passed, the king knew that his own death was imminent. Before his passing, he hosted a grand banquet for his followers who were in charge of carrying out his…

    God can do tremendous things in our lives, if we are willing to hold onto Him and let him work through us. It’s when we put aside our selfishness of seeking only after our personal desires that He reveals to us His awesome plan.

    When I was 23, I felt like I was on top of the world. I had just accepted a high end position in finance and was the…

    Our Editor Jimmy discuss the meaning of marriage and how Jesus impacts one of the most important promise we may make in our lifetime.

    Growing up, I had the ideal family. My parents had a great relationship and I only recall seeing them fight a handful of times. I naturally assumed that a good and happy marriage was the status quo and all I…

    What is Love? After 28 years of marriage, our friend Ralph shares the wisdom and knowledge he has gained through his experience in learning to love his wife and family.

    When I got married over twenty-eight years ago, I had no idea what I was getting myself into.  Don’t get me wrong, I loved my wife then, and I love her so much more now.  But I’ve…

  • faith

    I recall asking a good friend a while back, what makes a Christian different than any other person. She answered the only difference between a person of the world and a Christian is our faith. As Christians, we have great faith in our God and that is our life’s firm foundation. I was confused after hearing that answer. At the time, I believed in…

    I recently celebrated my 29th birthday. I am not one to make a big deal out of it and this year was no exception. Typically on my birthdays, I get a few friends together. It’s a selfish way for me to feel appreciated by those who are close to my heart. It’s also an excuse just to get some people together, people whom I have been meaning to…

    Our lives are defined by opportunities we grasp and the opportunities we miss out on. Some opportunities come just once in a lifetime.

    A few weeks ago, I was trying to finish my last action items on a very normal Friday afternoon and an email alert comes through on the bottom of my computer screen. I ignored it, like I always do on a Friday…

    I am extremely lucky because I have a great father.

    To understand my father, it’s best that I start by sharing his story. My father grew up in a poor family with lots of brothers and sisters. He was one of the few that received enough formal education to claw his way out of the ghettos of Shanghai. He did it by pursuing his passion for music – he…

    Maybe you used to feel as if you were an A and sometimes B student in life. You were a good kid, a dedicated employee, a nice person, a reliable friend, a teacher’s pet. You knew you weren’t perfect, but you were ok. Good enough to get by. You were always a little late, but still made it in time.

    Until all of the sudden life’s tests got more…

    My dear sister in Christ, Hanbit, shares how God has pulled her close in trying times and how He has developed her into an awesome intercessor for His Kingdom.

    I was born and raised in a Christian family where I learned to pray and read the bible every morning since I was very young. I grew up watching my parents pray, read their bible, share…

    Our Friend Andrew takes a leap of faith and spends 24 hrs as a homeless person in the city of San Francisco. He did it to understand the people he wants to minister to. He did it to feel the type of love these individuals need. He did it because God called him to do so.

    As people walked by, I put my cupped hand out, quietly asking, “Can you…

    Editor Jason speaks about a time where the “normal worship” of God proved to be an amazing revelation.
    If you’ve ever been to San Francisco, then you must have visited some of its charming neighborhoods.  PacificHeights has some of the best views of the city, Mission District has wonderful food and culture, and the list goes on.
    But what about…

    Sherry shares her story of how her life was changed by faith and obedience through times of uncertainty. 

    When I first came to know the Lord, I was 18, and I didn’t quite understand what it meant to have the loving relationship with God that He longed for. I just continued to live MY dreams. Get the degrees, get the dream career, have a solid…
