Advent Week 3: Grace

I want to start by sharing a fascinating story with you. I heard it told recently in a podcast by Eric Ludy, and I can’t shake it out of my memory because it really impacted me!!! This is my “debriefing” of his sermon and my thoughts on the topic of the grace. I hope you’re…

Advent Week 2: Comforter

I remember a day a while back where I was feeling pretty crappy. I was feeling discouraged, burdened, and alone in my struggle. What did I do? I watched TV. I scrolled through my social media feeds. I ate something that was probably unhealthy. And then I felt better, right?…Nope. I felt just as crappy…

Advent Week 1: Protecter

You know what’s weird? I’m not as excited for Christmas this year as I usually am. I actually felt a strange heaviness come over me in the last few weeks as I thought about how much Christmas has turned into consumerism and gift giving, and continues to drift so far away from the true meaning….

Seasons Of Waiting

“Why are people content to talk to Moses when they could be going up the mountain to talk to God themselves?! Face to Face!!” I wrestle with this question often. It’s one that was asked by Francis Chan in a podcast I’ve listened to numerous times in the last months. Maybe I should start by…

Running Two Races

Do you ever feel like it’s tough to lace together daily life with The Great Commission? It used to feel like 2 separate things for me. There was the stuff you do for God’s Kingdom, and there were the every-day tasks. I realized that I was always SO tired because I was trying to run…

Let’s Talk About BOUNDARIES!

So guys, on the theme of getting paced spiritually…BOUNDARIES. I don’t know how this topic makes you feel, but I know when I heard the word “boundaries”, it used to make me feel uncomfortable and somewhat defensive. What would run through my mind were things like: “Boundaries is that awkward talk mom and dad sit…
