He is still working through you

A couple years ago I was on fire. Passionate. I was pretty certain that God had placed a specific calling on my heart. I knew I had heard him, remember the events. The time. The place. Who was around. What He said to me. I had a plan and a purpose. A focus. A desire. [...]

You can have the world. I choose…

And what do you benefit if you gain the whole world but lose your own soul? Is anything worth more than your soul? Matthew 16:26 Fame. Fortune. Fun. Doing whatever you want, whenever you want. This is the message the world provides. Do this and you will be popular. Be like them and you will be [...]

WWJD-First, Let Me…?

I had the immense honor and pleasure a bit ago of baptizing my mother-in-law. I’ll share the details of the day in a different post (one related to silly prayers), but I have to say..the feeling was incredible.

The Battle: Part 2

I didn’t want to go. It is 7:45 pm. The service started at 7:15, so I am sure to have missed some of it anyway. What is the point in showing up 30 minutes late? Plus, I am exhausted, I have been in the nursery for 3 solid days and I could use this night [...]

The Battle: Part 1

Tossing. Turning. Up. Down. This was the position of my body through the night, but also my head. Awake for 3 hours while the devil wreaked havoc on my brain. For 3 solid hours he attacked my purpose. My integrity. All my regrets. He tapped into all the things that made me feel inadequate, useless, [...]
