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

Over the years, I’ve given a lot of thought to what it means for me to “delight [myself] in the LORD.” I’ve had an uncomfortable relationship with Psalm 37:4 because people like to quote that verse to singles. It feels like an accusation: You don’t have a husband because you are not delighting in the... Continue Reading →

Nothing To Lose

I spent a lot of my adult life trying to figure out whether my difficulty developing meaningful friendships has to do with my personality or my life situation. I have concluded that there are a lot of complex factors. Add a pandemic, and it is possible that I have never been more annoying and out-of-touch.... Continue Reading →

Does God Laugh At Us?

While these are serious times in our world, I can’t help but find amusement in peoples' responses. I know I am not the only one who has found occasion to laugh.

Much of our anxiety is rooted in the fact that the situation is far outside of our control. This cuts to the heart of humanity; our trials remind us that... Continue Reading →

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 →

Viral Pandemonium

Life has become. . .strange. It feels like 9/11 colliding with Black Friday. The panic that has been building over the past couple of weeks, was offset by the fact that each day was still bringing life as usual. The topics of conversation at work included speculation about the sudden hoarding of toilet paper. The... 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 →
