My One Thing

Starting today, I was thinking of all the many things on my to-do list. Go get gas. Meet up with a friend. Work on school work. Prepare for a weekend conference. I am now at home in the time I had planned on working on all the many different projects. In the Lord’s fire of […]

2019: A Year of Growth

I first think of the very beginning of this year. My family had been in Smithfield for the day, spending time together, Darby and I getting our nails done, and all of us trying to track down a family friend in a nursing home. My family arrived home, and my grandparents showed up to help […]

“Don’t Forget My Death”

Opening my Bible to Scripture describing Jesus’ death on the cross, I hesitated in wanting to read it. Thinking about Jesus dying for me seemed sad.

Do You Know Jesus?

You are loved, pursued, chosen, and victorious no matter what you have done. You are loved, pursued, chosen, and victorious no matter where you have been. You are loved, pursued, chosen, and victorious no matter what you have seen, touched, or participated in. God is not a God of shame. We must think about Who […]

Walking Forward

How is your walk with God doing? Hang with me for a minute. Are you actively pursuing God yet feeling beyond distant from your King? Has your heart been shattered? Are you in need of a resurrection?
