In the Wilderness

“It’s better to be a slave in Egypt, than a corpse in the wilderness.” Life is always uncertain. We are not guaranteed tomorrow and not knowing what tomorrow brings, can bring fear. The people of Israel experienced this first hand in the book of Exodus. They were slaves in Egypt and cried out to God…

Today – Tomorrow – Forever

Today I marry my best friend, my forever and my always. I know it’s been a whirlwind of a ride, but I wouldn’t have had it any other way. You are my soul mate and my love. God has known this would be the outcome from the beginning and has been molding me to be…

My Dear (You’re Loved)

Do you know what you’re worth? Do you know how special you are? If not, my prayer is that by the end of this post you will. Even if you don’t realize it, there is no one else like you on this planet. Rather than come up with my own way of saying this, I…

I Have Been Found

Have you ever experienced losing something so important to you that you will stop everything just to find it? No matter what it is, it is so important that it consumes your thoughts and actions until you find it? As I dreamed last night, I was reminded of this feeling. In my dream I was…

You Haven’t Won Anything

The thief’s purpose is to steal and kill and destroy. My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life. – John 10:10 There is a battle raging, even if you know nothing about it. From the moment man fell in the garden, that battle has left the human race in the middle trying…

Ebb and Flow

“I thought how lovely and how strange a river is. A river is a river, always there, and yet the water flowing through it is never the same water and is never still. It’s always changing and is always on the move. And over time the river itself changes too. It widens and deepens as…

This Day and Age

It’s hard to know which way to go. We are pulled in many different directions and have so many people and things trying to influence us and draw us one way or the other. It gets overwhelming and most people, myself included, just stop and say it’s easier to stand still than to exert effort…

The Mural

When I was in college, I went through a period of extreme searching, trying to figure out who I was and who I was supposed to be. In this time, I wrote a lot. I wrote about my frustrations and about my discoveries. This blog post is one I wrote 8 years ago during that…
