Where’s my church

I was reading in the (In)courage devotional Bible just now, and I read a reading entitled "This is Church" (it goes with Psalm 150:6 if you have that Bible and want to see it). It was talking about church as a "house of worship" and finding that place of worship in nature. I'm not necessarily… Continue reading Where’s my church

Goals are a road map

About a month ago, we had goals weekend. During this weekend we were to set goals, personally and for our group. I set my goals weeks before because I felt inspired to do so then. Also, if you've read previous blogs, you know that was probably divine intervention because had I waited until Goals Weekend… Continue reading Goals are a road map

Has anyone seen hope?

Label me

I heard this quote the other day and it really resonated with me. I've been convicted lately that I hear a lot of labels in my head. Most of them come from the negative committee that lives there. Some of them probably come from Satan when he's trying to disable me. I know you hear… Continue reading Label me

That fear thing

Today I woke up with the 23rd Psalm in my mind. We all know the words. It's a required part of the Christian experience. As I thought through it though, I know that even if I can say the words, that's not how I live. But it should be. "Though I walk through the valley… Continue reading That fear thing

To just be held…and like it
