I am not ashamed. I’ll tell anyone, any time of day! It’s not a secret; honestly, I’m very open about it! I love coffee. Cold brew, iced, cappuccinos, lattés, Americanos, cortados, PSL, or a simple cup from a French Press— I love it! Ask me about local coffee shops, or quality of the nearby Starbucks; watch… Continue reading Cappuccinos and Posthumous Gratitude
Sometimes life feels like a roller coaster– going from 0 to 70 mph in under 60 seconds, driving up and down and everywhere else in between.
And sometimes… sometimes life feels like a rickety old rope bridge.
I’m thankful for big things. My salvation. The fact that 2,000 years ago my Savior chose to die on a cross because He knew I needed Him. That He loves me at my worst, and forgives me at my darkest. That He has a purpose for such a broken vessel. That He can turn my… Continue reading I’m thankful.
Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created. Revelation 4:11 Last night I worked in the library at my college. It’s a small library, but it was occupied by several students who were busy writing… Continue reading Worth the Effort
I can’t. Yes, it’s true. I can’t do anything right. My talents seem to be cleverly painted mistakes. My rough edges are really only broken pieces— splinters of good intentions— shards of hopeless attempts. I can’t.— The phrase is a sin because it ended three words early. Shall I finish it? I can’t— but God… Continue reading I can’t.
CCM– Contemporary Christian Music. It has been a subject of much controversy. Millennials love it and claim it is an effective worship-tool; older generations despise for breaking with tradition. CCM is a question– but not merely of “right” or “wrong.” It is a matter of what is and is not Biblical. It is a matter of principle, not of preference.
I am going a to make a bold, distinct statement that might send some you you running. But please, hear me out! Stay and read through, and determine before you proceed that you will have an open mind and a heart that is tender to God’s Word.
Dear person caught in the middle, I need to admit something. I don’t know what it’s like to be you right now. You’re a Christian and you know and believe homosexuality is a sin… but you have a gay friend. And since the Supreme Court ruling turned the country upside down, this friend of yours… Continue reading An Open Letter to Those Caught in the Middle
Today, rainbows make me grieve. Today, the liberals and promoters of the gay agenda cheer and wave their multi-colored banners and hold their heads high, basking in the pride of their newfound “equality.” Reveling in the acceptance of their sin. I’m not here today to hate on gays. I’m not here to tell you that… Continue reading What’s Stopping Us?
The other day I received some disappointing news. No, it wasn’t tragic, or life-altering, or even serious; but it was disappointing to me. It looked like I wasn’t going to get my way. My mood quickly became downcast. Poor me. I went to the Word of God looking for comfort. I went as a… Continue reading At All Times. Period.
Stars with glittering beauty bright Are splayed across the sky; The comets gleam in stellar flight– But, O Lord, what am I? The angels in their garments shine, And see the Holy One; Yet all the things of earth are mine To hold in dominion. I am no seraph, good and pure; I am no… Continue reading What Am I?
