Go or Stay, Here Am I

I have spent the last decade seeking God and wrestling with Him over my disappointments and unmet desires. It has been a process of learning to depend on His sufficient grace, one day at a time. As a result, I am more content than I have ever been. Yet, lately, I have felt a new... Continue Reading →

GOD Economics

In my past, there are some financial struggles. I was underemployed, and living in an area with a high cost of living. My family helped me, but God got me through. God helped me scrape by, get into better jobs, and eventually get out from under the debt I incurred in the lean years. Through... Continue Reading →

What Am I Doing?

To blog or not to blog? That is the question. At its core, isn’t a blog a soliloquy? The longer I keep this blog, the more I ask myself what I am doing. I ask God that, too. Right around the first of the year, I knew that my WordPress subscription would be renewing, and... Continue Reading →

Jesus Was Single.

Many churches in America have become segregated societies. This likely comes as a surprise to those of you in the majority. But people who have never married know they are separated.

Sharing IS Caring

I also remember him talking about Dawson Trotman, the founder of The Navigators, but I didn’t have any context for the man or his ministry. After my grandfather’s death, I... Continue Reading →

To the Death

The battle has begun. Apparently, posting a blog about Living Like You’re Dead is asking for trouble. I don’t think of myself as being that significant in this world, so I was surprised when I began to feel that I was under attack. I started the week pondering how to take the lesson I had...

Living Like You’re Dead

Last summer, I was in Acts for my daily reading, and Acts 20:24 caught my attention. I wrote it on a notecard, and that notecard traveled around with me for a while. That was during my Whirlwind Season  of busyness and stress, but I found minutes here and there that I would read through that... Continue Reading →

Oh, the Christmas Burden

Christmas is upon us, and I fear that for many people, it is filled with stress rather than joy. As a single person from a laid-back family, I often feel like and observer of the madness. At one Christian gathering, in a prayer someone referred to "the Christmas burden.” I wonder if it was one... Continue Reading →
