The Ultimate Thirst-Quencher

I have been thinking about a song my father sang in church, when I was a child: “Like the woman at the well I was seeking / For things that could not satisfy. . .Fill my cup, Lord, I lift it up, Lord / Come and quench this thirsting of my soul.” When I was... Continue Reading →

Selfish Generosity

I am always looking to evaluate myself, and I try to be open to the work of the Holy Spirit in my life. I want to understand as best as possible how my mind works and what motivates my behavior. Recently, God has given me insight into why I respond the way I do when... Continue Reading →

Shedding Light On Delight

Last week's blog was actually a full-length introduction to this week. I had too much to say for a single blog post. The conclusion was that if the God of the universe delights in me, my response should be to find my delight – my joy and pleasure - in my relationship with Him. I... Continue Reading →

Unrequited God

Steadfastness of Hope

Trying to keep a right attitude in these uncertain times is a challenge. I am sure I am not the only one battling anxiety, these days. Being a Christian isn’t about being optimistic or pessimistic, it is about living with hope. Christians live with hope, not because we think everything will always be rosy, but... Continue Reading →

How Do I Love Thee?

A few years ago, I read a book by Beth Moore called, Jesus, the One and Only. In it, she described how she had been drawn to Jesus from a young age. I was envious of her seemingly innate love for Jesus which for some reason, I cannot relate to. As a young child, I... Continue Reading →
