What Not To Wear

One popular television program of recent years in our home is What Not to Wear. Based in New York City, this program features Stacy and Clinton, the two co-hosts who enter people’s homes, raid their closets, and tell them what “works” and what doesn’t. In particular, they’re skilled at showing people the fashions that look Continue Reading…

Homesick

Living and waiting. You can’t have one without the other. Usually the waiting is trivial and, at it’s worst, annoying: waiting in line at the store, waiting at long red lights, waiting on hold for customer service, waiting for the weather to change, and waiting for the weekend to come. Sometimes waiting causes much deeper Continue Reading…

Wrestling Against Enemy Strongholds

Pres did some wrestling in middle school. I hated watching his matches! My emotions would sky rocket to ten and try their best to leap right on off the scale; my body was one mass of tense muscles as I’d twist and turn — wanting nothing so much as to get down on the mat Continue Reading…

Cute Shoes, Rain, and Big Birthdays

I didn’t bother to look at my weather app yesterday. I instead went “old school” and actually looked out the window. It was raining, and I couldn’t have been more excited. You see, a few weeks ago I bought new rain boots…really, really cute rain boots.  I’ve been waiting patiently to wear them because no Continue Reading…

El Roi – The God Who Sees

He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away. Revelation 21:4 (NIV) Do you know that no matter what circumstance you find yourself in at this very moment, God sees you? Would it be a Continue Reading…

Redefining Grace

Some of the phrasing from evangelicals is kind of funny and a little gross too.  “Washed in the blood” and “On-fire for Jesus” tend to be phrases that don’t connect to well with most people, unless they speak fluent Christianese.  Yet I have found that many of the simple words we use to describe this Continue Reading…

I’m a Quitter

I quit. Yep I’m a quitter. Today I became a quitter after reading, thinking & praying about Romans  5:1. Romans 5:1 (ESV)  says this…Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Here’s my personalized version… Because, I have been justified by my faith in Jesus, I have Continue Reading…

Have You Heard Only 1/3 of the Gospel?

The gospel states that through the finished work of Jesus we can be forgiven, transformed, experience intimate fellowship with God and the body, bring honor to Christ on earth by our godly obedience and reign with Him forever. The word to emphasize here is finished. No man (certainly not this one) understands the complete gospel Continue Reading…

Walking Unleashed

Most evenings my dog Wesley and I take a walk through the neighborhood. Other than riding in the truck with the windows rolled down, the walk is the highlight of his day. During these walks, I had always kept a tight leash on him. He was not allowed to walk anywhere but right by my Continue Reading…

Freedom’s Dependence

Authentic freedom is not to be taken lightly. At its core, freedom provides us the power to choose without undue internal or external restraint, persecution, oppression, or hindrance. I believe the grace of God brings freedom to its fullness. But how and where do freedom and faith integrate? I’m sure if I asked around I Continue Reading…
