The In-Between.

Lost in a cycle. Your purpose is promised, but not yet fulfilled. “But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently.” Romans 8:25 There is a place that is all too familiar. You would recognize it if you saw it on a map. This is the place between…

In Search of Truth.

Life is complex and beautiful. It is cavernous and yet concise. Life is complicated. Of this I’m sure. It bends; it bows. Life is full of twists and turns and dead-end roads. Every interaction is a new intersection; some are well defined while others are only known by the locals. It takes good neighbors and…

Led in Love Bound in Unity

“Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in…

Thank God for…Something

“Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” ~1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 It’s that time of year again, pumpkin spice, pumpkin pie, sweaters, pumpkin’s on sweaters—not to mention pilgrim’s and family traditions. It’s that time of year when we tell our families and friends of…

Why I Only Listen to Christian Music?

Okay, that is not completely true. There are cases where I’m in a car with someone who has control of the radio, or I’m in a public place and secular music is playing in the background. There are even some YouTuber’s that I listen to that largely don’t cover Christian songs. It might be a…

What Do You Think?

Do you remember the time when…? Have you heard the story about…? I don’t know about you but I like a good plot. Stories of encouragement seem to energize me. I’ve been doing a little bit of research on the powers of positive thinking. You know what I mean. We have all been there. You…

Stretched

Growing up I always wanted the latest action figure. It was a little before my time, but it was still a well-known toy by the time I came along. Stretch Armstrong first debuted in 1976 by toy manufacturer Kenner. The trait that makes Stretch notable is his ability to be stretched well beyond its original…

Not Alone

Have you ever felt like you were alone in the world? Like you are the only one that really understands your situation? Have you ever felt like you are the only one that is left living like you still believe in Jesus? Well, you are in good company because Elijah felt this same way in…

Epic Fail or Not

1 Corinthians 13 speaks of love. A great topic. We all need it. We all use it at some point in our lives; though, the methods and outcomes might look a little different from time to time. Unlike us, God’s methods do not change when it comes to love. God’s love is unconditional. We don’t…

GO! (Part Two) The Evangelistic Life

Why can’t we go? Many of us have excuses as to why we cannot go on mission for Jesus. We say that I don’t have time; I don’t have money; it is not my calling; I am not physically able to go. Our excuses are often legitimate ones, but they should not stop us from…
