The Bible is a Masterpiece

I'm learning a lot of new things about the Bible that I've never known before! It is exciting me, which is spurring me on to keep learning and reading! Most of what this post contains are not knew ideas, since many theologians and bible historians already had figured this stuff out. But it is new... Continue Reading →

Community or Panzi Scheme?

Have you ever wished that God gave you a specific to-do list on how to live according to His will, and how to get the most out of it?  How do we make the biggest return on our investment? In a way, 1 Thessalonians 5:11-23 does just that.  It outlines specific ways that we should... Continue Reading →

Addressing our Memory Problems

There are many seasons, days, or hours where I can be tempted to think "God, are you even there? God, do you even care about me in this?" The Lord is working in my heart so these questions come less often (Praise Him!). But still, how often are we tempted to question God's presence, goodness,... Continue Reading →

Easter Reflection – why?

Happy Easter! Jesus is risen!  Okay, I missed the boat on getting this posted in time for Easter, like I had planned, but Jesus is still risen, right? Though I am sure, you saw a million articles about Jesus this Easter, I wanted to reflect back on something I was reminded of this year: the... Continue Reading →

Giving Our Best to God

When we think about giving offerings or tithes to God, do we really think about giving God the best fruit of our labor? I surely don't. Our church is preaching through Genesis, and so we talked about Cain and Abel! It's a classic story, but this part of the story at the beginning always confused... Continue Reading →

Share Boldly? I don’t.

For me, one of the reasons that I do not share the Gospel is a deep-rooted fear that I will start bickering among those that I am sharing it with.  What about this thing that the Church does? Or the bible says these awful things?  Or whatever argument... Continue Reading →

Equal Prices for Our Atonement

This year, I've embarked on the challenge to read the whole bible. Yes, it was supposed to be the whole bible in a year, but since real life happens and grace abounds, it's going to take a little longer! I've been practicing regular personal bible reading for a few years now, but this is the... Continue Reading →

So Will I – Hillsong United

I love this song; It has definitely been my most listened to worship song recently.  Feel free to play the video and listen before or after you read, but I would ask that for this song, don't bother reading what I write during the song, but focus on the lyrics - they are so very...

Following Our Family’s Rules

What rules or expectations did your family set for you that everyone still follows? Were there rules about clothing (i.e. what to wear or not to wear during certain times)? What about dietary rules (i.e. eat these foods, but __ is really unhealthy so avoid that)? What about rules about how to spend your time?... Continue Reading →
