When You Feel Like You Can’t Run Anymore

on
February 9, 2016
I hate running. I hate it with a passion. It's not just because I'm getting old and fat either. I've always hated it. I will walk all day if I have to; I enjoy walking, but please oh please don't make me run.

I Am Not Enough 

on
December 3, 2015
When we as Christians claim to be enough on our own, we rob God of His glory. We are in danger of making ourselves into idols.

Sharing My Story

on
December 2, 2015
I used to think I was crazy. Not walked into a room and forgot what you came for crazy. Not “Where are my keys? Oh, they’re in my hand,” crazy. I mean certifiably insane. Like belongs-in-an-institution insane.

Christmas

The Man Called Jesus

on
December 1, 2015
The unbelieving world doesn't know why we celebrate. They don't understand the significance of Christ's birth. To them, Christmas is just another reason to throw a party. Maybe instead of insisting that the world celebrate the birth of someone they don't know, we should introduce them to the Man called Jesus. Instead of criticizing them for saying happy holidays, why don't we simply show them who Christ is.

Giving Thanks In Dificult Seasons

on
November 24, 2015
As Christians, though, we're not only supposed to be thankful when things are going our way. It's not just the good things that God calls us to be thankful for. We're to be thankful for everything.

Me versus the pumkins

on
October 30, 2015
One taste and my heart sunk. The texture was off, and it tasted like somebody had left apple juice out on the way too long. I was so disappointed with it I wanted to chuck the whole thing in the trash, slow cooker and all. I walked away and left it sitting on the kitchen counter planning never to have anything to do with it again.

Jesus Loves The Little Children: When Prayer Doesn’t Feel Like Enough

on
October 13, 2015
As I made a note to myself to pray for two families in need, it didn't feel like enough. I felt like I should do more, like I should do something. And praying didn't feel like doing anything. In that moment saying a prayer felt like a cop-out.

Whose Armor Are You Wearing?

on
October 6, 2015
My own armor does nothing for me except make provision for my flesh. We can't be affective soldiers if we are wearing faulty armor. The armor we wear must be the best. It must be God's armor. He provides for us everything we need. But we have to be willing to give up our own armor first.

Monuments, Landmarks, And Bridges: A Pause To Reflect

on
August 29, 2015
Can I just talk to you for a while? Will you allow me to paint pictures in your mind before they fade out of mine? Can I share with you the thoughts swirling in my head that I don't quite know how to put into words?
