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 →

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 →

Exodus Series: Covenants

This is God--the Almighty, Holy God. And He... Continue Reading →

Up

This picture was taken approximately a year ago, and the following piece was written shortly after. Gray clouds and rain were the ominous jewels in today's crown.
