Why We All Need to Study the Bible

One of the best things a Christian can do is take in the solid teaching of local church leaders and compare it to the Bible. Armed with this information and the guidance of the Holy Spirit through prayer, we can make the best judgement for ourselves whether what we are hearing matches up with what God has said.

Boldly Sharing Your Faith

fear and intimidation are natural to anything we try for the first time, because of our imperfect nature. That doesn’t make what you’re doing any less worthy. The enemy would love to derail any spiritual progress you make in the name of Jesus, especially if it means that your progress might have a hand in the progress of others.

No Wasted Days

I might be doing all the right things: going to church, serving, reading the Bible, etc. But I am not benefitting as I should if I am not resting in that joy of the Lord.

A Life Full of Praise

This year (of all years) I made a New Year’s Resolution to become more knowledgeable about the world by following the news more. As you can probably guess, it’s been a heavy and unpleasant task, one which seems to get worse by the minute. Between the fear of the future and deep sorrow over tragedies… Continue Reading →

Healthy Habits for Working From Home

You don’t have to go on feeling isolated and exhausted. By caring for yourself, connecting with your coworkers, and focusing on doing the best you can at your job, you will find joy and a peace that only integrity can bring.

When Pride Turns Blessings into Rights

For the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds. We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ, 2 Corinthians 10:4-5 The thing about working for large public corporations is that unless you are… Continue Reading →

If we must suffer, suffer well

It feels counter intuitive to our flesh that leaning into God could possibly resolve our inner turmoil. The wisdom of the unbelieving world might call that “sticking your head in the sand” or “being in denial”. But I found from experience that getting out of my own head truly was the antidote to this inner turmoil.

Words are a burden and a privilege

I’m just trying to live every day like Jesus and I fail a lot. To show that in my writing was always my intent from the beginning 8 years ago, but I’ve strayed from that and gotten into my head about it. As a result, I think my writing has become sterile and lacking joy. I really want to change this.

How to keep your faith strong in a secular work environment

Even with a heavenly calling on me, I can get caught up in sin in spite of myself. The line gets blurred constantly. Things like gossiping, grumbling against management decisions, or even participating in less-than-godly conversations just to fit in can knock me off course at work. So how do we maintain our purpose and razor sharp focus while the ruler of the world works to render us inefficient?

Witnessing without words

As a follower of Jesus, I know that we are commanded to “go and make disciples of all the nations”; this isn’t an option. However, for years I chose to ignore this command because, let’s face it. I care way too much what people think of me. I could never be that bold.

How will you measure your 2019?

Now in 2020 I want to DEPEND on him and know what that really is like. And so, now that I know where I’ve been, I can turn toward where I am going: Into the unknown with a cloud of glory leading the way and more glory following behind me. Isn’t that how we should face every day? We are forever traveling to our destinations, whether it is to Egypt or Babylon, or back to Jerusalem to rebuild. But the whole way we know that our ultimate destination is to be with our Good Father forever, even though we must spend a while in exile.

Who do you trust when things fall apart?

When it seems that evil has the upper hand in the world, we must hold on to the heart-knowledge that God is still on the throne. Our choices in the chaos will prove to whom we belong.
