Running Headlong {Into} Your Weakness

By on May 25, 2017 in Christian Life with 2 Comments

Life is a strange mix of successes and failures, wins and losses, ups and downs. And human nature tends to shift constantly toward those circumstances, people, hobbies, jobs, etc. that allow us to succeed, because – hey – we all like being winners. I, too, have this urge. But the current season in which I […]

I Want To Be … But I Am Not (Struggling With Sufficiency)

By on May 23, 2017 in Christian Life with 1 Comment

I want to be a God-fearing wife who respects and lovingly submits to her husband. I want to be a mom who shows patience, kindness, and leads her children to be followers of Christ. I want to share the gospel with my neighbors and love others well. I want to spend quality time in the […]

Degrees of Surrender

“Are we back here again?” She looked at me with conflicted eyes. “I thought I surrendered this? I thought I had dealt with this? Why can’t God just take this out of my life?” I stood there staring back at Sarah, searching for the words to say. She was right. She had dealt with this […]

When God Writes Your Instagram Handle

I came late to the social media game, kicking and screaming because technology really intimidates me. However, I now begrudgingly acknowledge what a great tool social media can be to help connect with people, encourage them, share about Jesus, and equip and disciple others, so I have jumped on the bandwagon. First Facebook, then Twitter, […]

The Day I Ditched My 5-Year Plan

By on March 30, 2017 in Christian Life with 1 Comment

I wasn’t supposed to be wearing contacts today. Actually, I wasn’t supposed to be wearing contacts ever again. After 20-some years of fulfilling ever-increasing prescriptions, fumbling around the bathroom counter every morning to find that little blue case, and looking like I’d just seen the end of Steel Magnolias every time mascara flecked off an […]

When Our Ministry Leaders Fail

By on March 23, 2017 in Christian Life, Ministry with 1 Comment

  …And then the news broke. Just in our own personal circles. It came out in little waves, and then big gushes, and then what felt like a tsunami. Another brother in ministry fell. A pastor stepping down for the sake of sin. Oh, how my heart just ached within me! I was more saddened […]

Have You Been Eating Too Much Honey?

Proverbs 25:16 gives us this caution: “If you find honey, eat just enough— too much of it and you will vomit.” The principle behind Solomon’s advice in this verse is that over-indulgence, even of good things, will surely make us “sick.” It has become a respectable sin to over-indulge in things that bring us pleasure.

Looking for Satisfaction in all the Wrong Places

By on March 2, 2017 in Christian Life with 3 Comments

Something is Missing In 1988, the British pop band, Fine Young Cannibals, released the fifth single from their album, The Raw and the Crooked. The song, “I’m not Satisfied,” was a telling testimony of how earthly things will never truly bring satisfaction and contentment. These young, secular artists told the story of a man who finds life wanting—his […]

Hanging Up Your Shoes

This past summer one of my college gals had the opportunity to work at a ministry which helps women come out of the sex industry. They have all sorts of avenues to assist these precious women, whether it be helping them gain a GED or providing a reputable job, all the while showing them the […]

God Only Gives Two Choices

The battle took place around the dinner table, just as many battles with children do. However, this time we were surrounded by family…on Thanksgiving. Not necessarily the place where you want to have a teachable moment with your child. But there we were with our daughter who was screaming at the top of her lungs […]
