The Weight of Perfection

I wish I could say it’s easy for me to spend quiet, uninterrupted time with God. I wish I could say every time I find myself in a situation where I can offer the Gospel, I do. I wish I could say every time I sit down to hear from God in His word, I…

Rebound Time

If anything is certain, it’s that life will always be unpredictable. Unfortunately, there is no map to where life will take us, nor is there a dictionary that will define every puzzling part of our lives. All this uncertainty can inevitably cause fear, anxiety and doubt to creep into our minds. But, when these feelings…

Preparing for Storms

Growing up, my dad would often say, you perform how you practice. Take for instance, a basketball player. When he or she goes out on the court for a game, this won’t be the first time he or she has shot a ball, learned a play, or defended a player. Instead, he or she has trained consistently to…

Heaven Only Knows

When you think about heaven, what do you think about, truly? Is it all your favorite foods? Is it no more sorrow? Are your loved ones there? Is it one big Christian party? Is God there? I remember years ago I dreamt that I was flying in a helicopter over what seemed to be heaven,…

True Identity

A lot of things in this world can describe the lives we live, but these things don’t truly define us. Think of all the degrees we sometimes pursue to show off the letters behind or in front of our name, or the accolades and honors we receive from people around us or from our careers.…

We’re Victorious

Scripture reading: Daniel 6 Just as the enemy will send people to distract, dismantle and disapprove our purpose, God will lead people to encourage, enhance and enjoy our purpose. For context, let’s look at Daniel’s story. Because Daniel found favor in the eyes of God and men (Proverbs 3:4), the enemy planted envy in those Daniel…

When We Need a Reset

Some days I feel like I need a total reset in my life. I feel like a reset is needed when I’m unproductive, or when I’ve been spending increasingly more time scrolling mindlessly through social media, or when it’s obvious I’m not present during conversations, or I’m more argumentative, or just overall not feeling like…

Be Fearless

“On another Sabbath he went into the synagogue and was teaching, and a man was there whose right hand was shriveled. The Pharisees and the teachers of the law were looking for a reason to accuse Jesus, so they watched him closely to see if he would heal on the Sabbath. But Jesus knew what…

The Necessity of Change

Change can be scary. There is fear of the unknown, fear of the known coming to an end, fear of failure and fear of being uncomfortable. These fears can scare us into staying at a job we know we’ve outgrown, avoid pursuing a business venture, and setting our goals too low. But, change propels us…

Dwelling on Failure

March Madness is one of my absolute favorite times of the year. I adore college basketball, and in March (and a lite bit of April) these college players give everything they have to be crowned champions. There’s incredible emotion, a lot of upsets and amazing surprises. But, as I’m watching these unbelievably exciting games, I’m…
