He’s Got the Whole World..You Know the Thing..

Sometimes prayer seems futile. It’s hard to imagine things actually changing when we voice our concerns to God and ask him to fix what’s wrong. Because sometimes we’ve prayed and seen exactly zero results. That friend keeps going under with their addiction. The cancer doesn’t go away. The better job opportunity goes to someone else….

Being Prepared

It’s time. It’s time to realize our country, heck, our world, is not going back to normal. Not anytime soon, anyway. So, what’s a girl to do? Get your house in order. What do I mean by that? Turn off Netflix for a minute and pay attention. Get your house in order. The list below…

Nothing But The Truth

Things that are true stand the test of time. Things that are true can hold their own against doubts and misgivings. Things that are true will not be washed away in the flood of popular opinion or made untrue by lies. The truth will be there when all else is exposed for the nothing it…

Where Do You Stand?

I don’t want any part of it. It’s not good for you, although it may appear that way for a short while. You may not feel the consequences yet, but you will. It’s going to kill you, actually. We’ve got to stop looking only at the short term, because the future ramifications will be here…

This Appointment

This past year and a half has taught me some things. Mostly that human nature hasn’t changed much. But also that God is faithful and good even when the world is basically a dumpster fire. I think a valid word for many over the last eighteen months would be “disappointment.” I can personally relate to…

Jenga!

There’s a lot of deconstruction going on in the church. It’s kinda like Jenga. “I don’t agree with this piece, so lemme pull it out. Um..this one seems a bit harsh..see ya! Ooohh..this piece isn’t going to work for me, either..” Sooner or later, the whole thing comes crashing down. Now, you’re left with two…

I am not. He is.

Yesterday my pastor (known affectionately as Pastor PeePaw for some unspecified reason) asked a sobering question: “Are you one person at church and another with certain groups of friends?” Yikes. I don’t think this is true of me now (although I am not some great super-Christian and I do slip up with bad words every…

Here’s what I’m offering..

I’m not an influencer. I can apply my make-up with just enough competence not to look crazy. I have no desire to be famous. I haven’t lived among Nepali people in the Himalayas or started a non-profit for underprivileged skate-boarders. I can follow a recipe but haven’t created crazy delicious flavor-combos like tomato-feta pasta (is…

Wakey Wakey

This morning I’ve been weeping for the people of Afghanistan and the horrific nightmare that is now their reality. The Taliban is in full possession of billions of dollars worth of U.S. weaponry and are going door to door murdering anyone who isn’t on board with their reign of terror. People are literally clinging to…

Whaddya Know

When people are going against popular opinion at great risk to their personal reputation, livelihood, and even safety, you have to wonder why. If there is no reward other than a conscience compelled by truth, maybe it’s time to start listening. Such was the case with the first followers of Jesus. If Jesus did not…
