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.…

A Fear of Doubting God

Recently, I began to develop a fear that I would suddenly doubt God’s existence. So, I started habitually praying that God would give me the grace to always believe that He exists. One day, as I prayed this prayer for the umpteenth time, God told me this prayer was “milk.” “In fact, though by this…

Jesus is for Everybody

Before we go any further on this blog. Before we write any more devotionals about anything, I just want to pause for a second and present the Gospel (the good news of God) to those who have never accepted Jesus, and to those who believe in God, but are not 100% sure they are going…

A Content Life

Don’t you love those moments when you feel at utter peace? Everything seems to be in the right place, the storms have calmed, and a clear mind is present. Contentment in these moments come easy. But, what about those moments of utter disaster? The storms are raging, every hair is out of place, and it’s…

Emotional Roller Coasters

Monopoly Mega — a game of high priced rent, extravagant skyscrapers, elaborate property trades and my rollercoaster of emotions. A few days ago, it was a family game night, and the game of choice was the longest game possible. Throughout the entire night, I was up, and I was down. I would buy properties, earn…

Work With Your All

Recently, I had to make a return at a local grocery store. Before I could proceed to the customer service desk, one of the workers greeted me, and asked if he could see my return. He diligently rummaged through the items marking each tag to signify a return, and then marking those same items on…

God is Our Refuge

Think of a place you’re most comfortable in – past or present. Maybe it’s a relative’s home, a best friend’s bedroom, a favorite teacher’s classroom, a sunny beach. For me, reminiscing about my childhood home makes me all warm and fuzzy inside. The harmony created within these walls was a solid rock throughout my ever-changing…

Reading the Bible for Ourselves

The unprecedented access we have to the wisdom of others on YouTube, Netflix, social media, in books, etc. proves bittersweet. On one hand, these outlets provide encouragement, wisdom and advice. On the contrary, these sources can easily take the place of our own personal knowledge and revelation of the Bible, which comes from reading it…

Walking Purposefully

For as long as I can remember, I’ve always enjoyed writing – journal entries, short stories, poems, etc. For the younger me, it was easy to attach words to the worlds I created in my head because there was no pressure. Now, as I’m working towards a writing career, I’m consistently overthinking and repeatedly riddled…

Choosing What’s Right

As I watched Freedom Writers (again) this past weekend, parts of the movie struck me differently this time around. In particular, there is a scene where the students successfully raise enough money to bring Miep Gies to speak to their class – the woman who secretly housed Anne Frank and her family during the holocaust.…
