Life’s a Highway

I remember a summer several years ago--when I was transitioning between freshmen and sophomore year of college, between the often nightmarish lifestyle of college dorms and the shaky freedoms of off-campus student apartments--when I had to commute to my job on campus while living back home. Every 45-minute drive felt exaggeratedly long, like pulling teeth... Continue Reading →

The Blank Path

I think this blank slate phase is also me finally having to work for something. Not have it given like Joseph's favor, placed upon him by God and received by others in God's own timing. NO. This is me learning how to take ownership of my life. To ask myself the hard questions, to dive... Continue Reading →

The Wonderful Works of God

"I will thank Yahweh with all my heart; I will declare all Your wonderful works."Psalm 9:1 Sometimes, do we often glance over this verse without giving any second thought to what it truly means? I think we do. As I sat outside this morning, taking in the balmy air and rain-soaked grass from the storm... Continue Reading →

Unconditional Love

He is the sunshine of my day. He wakes me up and watches over me at night. His faithful love protects me always. He stirs the Holy Spirit within me. He keeps me safe though a 1,000 fall on one side and 10,000 on the other. His righteousness watches over me. He knit me in... Continue Reading →

Little Black Puppy

It truly is an unspeakable joy-- that uplifted feeling in my chest whenever my roommate's little black puppy heartily bounces over to me every morning upon seeing me. She wags her tail and jumps up and looks at me, expecting, wanting pets. Expecting, wanting love. It doesn't matter if she just saw me last night,... Continue Reading →

Let It Be Sincere Praise

I want us to look at something this morning--something that we know to do but often don't know how to do it: Making the most of our quiet time. From the moment we are saved, we are bombarded with declarations such as, "You need to get in God's Word every day" and "You must have... Continue Reading →

Getting Through the Holidays

As I type this on a gray, gloomy Monday morning, I feel the need to share a word of encouragement with you. I'm not sure how you're handling life this morning. I'm not sure how you're planning to address the Thanksgiving week ahead of us--whether you plan to embrace it with enthusiasm and gratitude or... Continue Reading →

The Everyday and Ordinary

If I had to summarize everything that God has been teaching me lately, it would be this: You can find joy in the seemingly mundane. Whether you're reading the book of Numbers or are experiencing an apathetic patch of days right now, there's no law saying that these things have to be bland. There's lessons... Continue Reading →
