He’s Not Gone

It is finished. It seemed as if He spoke to His own ending with those words. The world watched in wondrous horror as the man they thought to be Savior lay bloody and dead with nail scarred hands and thorn filled head. They saw their whole world, every belief, every hope, every peace, obliterated in […]

I’m in love! I’m in love! And I don’t care who knows it!

We have a very, very, very good God – He is so, so unbelievably good. It’s astonishing when we really think about it – completely, jaw-droppingly astonishing. As I was reading in Mere Christianity today, I came across a chapter on marriage where Lewis writes about how love is not all about feelings – it’s […]

Can you handle this?

Okay, this is pretty sassy – mostly because I tend to speak sarcastically to myself, so, let me just be real about what I’m struggling with right now. But then, there are parts where it is sweet; it is a glimpse into what the Father speaks over you, and it’s all things I really need […]

Homesick

Today, I was sitting in my favorite coffee shop, and I felt a pang in my heart – an indescribable longing I hadn’t really experienced before. I have seen people excited for the Kingdom to come, and I have read about Paul’s passion to be in the arms of Jesus, but never had I experienced […]

Where You Find Your Worth

I often find myself wondering what I’m really worth. The world tells us all that being confident in ourselves, being content in who we were created to be, is ridiculous – that we should always be striving to look better, be more agreeable, and fit the norm. And it doesn’t matter that we’re told to […]

Shame

I don’t know that there’s anything more painful or anything more common than the horrible, destructive power of shame. Shame researcher Brené Brown defines shame as, “the intensely painful feeling or experience of believing that we are flawed and therefore unworthy of love and belonging – something we’ve experienced, done, or failed to do makes […]

Battling Rejection

I think nearly everything we struggle with, specifically in relationships, but honestly just in general, can be boiled down to this one fear: rejection. What do you think of when you read that word? A person, a situation, a fear? Whatever it is, it’s painful because rejection is the greatest slap in the face anyone […]
