For A Season

“For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven:” (Ecclesiastes 3:1, ESV) There was a time in my life where, when things didn’t go my way, I defaulted to self-pity, and victim mentality. If I’m not careful, I still do sometimes. We are all wired differently and respond to the... Continue Reading →

Think Possibly!

“But he said, ‘What is impossible with man is possible with God’” (Luke 18:27 ESV). There’s a lot of talk these days about “positive thinking.” And there is merit to the practice. Unfortunately, there also exists the danger of going overboard and developing the mindset that we, in and of ourselves can do anything. This... Continue Reading →

New Every Morning

"But this I call to mind, and therefore I have hope: The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness" (Lamentations 3:21-23 ESV).

Outsiders

“Walk in wisdom toward outsiders, making the best use of the time. Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to answer each person” (Colossians‬ ‭4:5-6‬ ‭ESV‬‬). As Christians it is not uncommon that we find ourselves spending our time with other Christians. This is one... Continue Reading →

Burden Bearer

“Blessed be the Lord, who daily bears our burden, The God who is our salvation. Selah” (‭‭Psalms‬ ‭68:19‬ ‭NASB‬‬). I'm a worrier.I don't pace the floor or bite my nails, but I'm a worrier nonetheless. I internalize my worry in the same manner that I internalize anger or depression. I've been an introvert all my... Continue Reading →

What God is Like

"The Lord passed before him and proclaimed, "The Lord, the Lord, a God merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness, keeping steadfast love for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, but who will by no means clear the guilty" (Exodus 34:6-7 ESV). "How would you describe yourself?" he asked. "Give me an idea... Continue Reading →

God On Display Part 2

“But some of them said, 'Could not he who opened the eyes of the blind man also have kept this man from dying?'”(‭‭John‬ ‭11:37‬ ‭ESV‬‬). We all believe that Jesus has the power to heal. We all believe that while He physically walked this earth, He did heal. This is not in dispute in any... Continue Reading →

God On Display

“As he passed by, he saw a man blind from birth. And his disciples asked him, "Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?" Jesus answered, "It was not that this man sinned, or his parents, but that the works of God might be displayed in him” (‭‭John‬ ‭9:1-3‬ ‭ESV‬‬). It... Continue Reading →

Marathon Update

Thanks to all who prayed for me and those who cheered for me! The race didn't go completely according to plan, but it is an experience that I will never forget. And for that I thank God! It was a great, though difficult experience. I am grateful to God who gave me the strength to... Continue Reading →
