You Will Not Steal My Joy!

We, however, can live joyful lives even in the midst of not-so-perfect situations. We can reject the whispers and times we are tempted to dwell on those things that bring us down.

It Was the Moon That Woke Me Up

My prayer continues. I lift my head. I look up beyond the moon, beyond the stars with my heart reaching further than my hands could ever stretch.

Mark’s Gospel: Following

He knew what was coming and though He tried to warn them, He knew there was no way they could know what was ahead for them.

Growing In Godly Wisdom

If we approach reading the Bible as informational rather than transformational, that’s all it will ever be to us—information.

The Sunflower

There will be times of sunshine and times of rain—we have days, and we have nights, and when we go through each season, we know they will faithfully return.

Multiplying God’s Gifts

The last thing our Savior wants to see when our life on this earth is over is for us to think, look, and act the same way we did when we first came to know Him.

Hope of the Nations

For those I loved, life went on, but I was no longer a part of it. I would catch a glimpse of their lives from time to time, always from a distance.

It’s Simple

The truth is we are called to extend grace to those who have wronged us. And not just that, but you may be called to even intercede for them. That’s right, you may even be called to pray for them.

The Business of Dying

Here’s another confession. I have trust issues. There was a time in my life where I lived fully trusting in those I loved, deeply loved. I trusted them without a second thought.

The Immateriality of God

God is self-existent; therefore, He was not made. He was not created. The divine essence is entirely a spirit, and a spirit cannot be flesh, bone, and blood.

Pain Reminds Us What’s Important

All that other little stuff that we often let bother us… isn’t worth it. Enjoy life as much as you can and thank the Lord every single day.

What a Ride

Then you reach the top. The car tilts, getting ready to plummet down the track. You know it is going to happen fast. It’s going to go one way or the other.

Why You Are Worthy To Attend Church

Nobody should feel like they cannot show up to church because they don’t have nice enough clothes to wear or they are stuck in a lifestyle of sin but don’t know how to get out. Come anyway.

Taking Thoughts Captive

Taking every thought captive is definitely not something I have mastered. I still have times where I question my thoughts. I wonder: how did I allow this to happen again?

A Nativity

Many approach Easter with the triumphant and tragic depiction of the cross. But even before we had a cross, we had a manger.
