Emotional Rollercoasters

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…

Waiting in Faith

“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” (Hebrews 11:1 KJV) Sometimes, the most difficult part about faith is the wait. It’s the patient, occasionally longer than anticipated, wait for the prayers we’ve uttered and the promises we’ve read to come into reality, that can throw a wrench…

Life Abundantly

From the beginning of time, God desired for the people of this world to have everything we need to survive and live an abundant life. In Genesis 2, we see the creation of man, woman and the Garden of Eden. After God made Eve for Adam, there is not any mention of lack in this…

Disciplined Bible Reading

During this time of quarantine, I’ve finally figured out how to incorporate exercise into my daily life. To consistently exercise, I realized structure is necessary for me. Each day, I need a precise schedule to follow on what to do and how to do it – rest days included. Left to my own devices, I…

Chains of Monotony

If you’re like me, most days can seem like more of the same – working, eating, sleeping,  scrolling through social media, working out (on a good day). But today, I want to encourage you to break out of the same monotonous routine. Do something different today! Pray for guidance, and then work towards your short…

Officer B sprinted into action by pushing Officer A away from the…

Courage Over Comfort

Recently, I watched a Netflix talk by Brené Brown on the necessity of vulnerability. Among the many great lessons she presented to listeners, one piece of wisdom stood out among the rest. Each day she settled to choose courage over comfort, and she encouraged viewers to do the same. “‘Be strong and courageous. Do not…

Overwhelmed by the Bible?

Reading the Bible can be overwhelming, especially when we use it as a mirror for our lives. There is so much to work on, so much to do, so much not to do, so much forgiveness to ask for, so much forgiveness to give.  But, one thing is for certain. As we love God with…

Quick to Listen, Slow to Speak

Once when I was in middle school, a “he said, she said” dispute developed between two of my classmates. When the pair couldn’t come to an agreement, someone in class turned to another one of my classmates and asked him what happened. My classmate said, “How should I know?” And the investigator responded with something…

Love is a Verb

It often amazes me that the entire Bible speaks of God’s love for us, while seldomly speaking the words “I love you” in succession. But, the more I learn God’s character, it’s evident that God’s love is all about action.  “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it…
