Valued Beyond Measure.

But, the scars of our past remain. And so my nasty scar remained. An ever-present reminder that I have an ugly past in which I did not know my value as a person. Every once in a while, I would find myself struggling, triggered by something from my past that followed me to my current life and the feelings of worthlessness would slip in.
Just as there was a physical scar on my body, so too, was there one in my mind.

Sun, Wind, Earth.

And I am not foolish enough to worship the creation, but I am wise enough to worship the Creator who shows Himself to the created in the creation. And oh, how my soul sings with gratitude for this very reflection…

He Is My Spring…

Winter is over. Spring is here. This may be true of the calendar year, but it is also true of my heart. Cold days still happen in spring, but the hope remains. I’m no longer buried under dark gloomy skies, but now I’m in a season where it just keeps getting better. More and more layers of the winter are being removed from my life, and new growth keeps occurring.
Spring has sprung in more ways than one.

Backwards Living

Backwards Living: The more I think of me, the less happy I feel. The more I think I deserve this, then I realize I also deserve that too! The more I think of my own wants, the less I think of others. It’s a vicious cycle, isn’t it?

The Heart of Worship

Somewhere along the way I fell so deeply in love with Jesus that I couldn’t imagine not getting to worship him. I do it on my own often, but there is something different about corporate worship. Something different about hearing a multitude of other’s singing worship and praises too.

Are you mad at God?

God is the God of the universe, He can handle your anger. Go ahead and tell Him. Tell Him why you’re angry. Tell Him why you feel betrayed. Tell Him why your upset and let Him work through that. You will never resolve anything by hiding the truth from God.

Why does Christianity still matter?

Christianity doesn’t just still matter, it matters even more in a world starved of true freedom and hungry for authoritative truth. Now more than ever, we need to help the broken find redemption, and the one true voice they are starving to hear.

Offer the Other Cheek?

Offer the Other Cheek? Why would Jesus tell us to do that when someone has slapped us already? How can we understand what Jesus teaches us about being insulted?

God Loves Alcoholics Too.

Alcohol affects millions of lives, but we were not meant to live in bondage. We have the power to overcome the damage in our own lives from alcoholism, resting in the knowledge of God’s love and grace.

He Took It All..

You can trust in Jesus Christ to take your sins and burdens, including mental and physical hurts.. because he already did on the cross.
