Atheism is the denial of the existence of God. I have many friends and family who identify themselves as atheist, and I myself used to live as though it was true. This is the subject on my mind today, and being on vacation, I have let myself slip with my daily readings. Suddenly when a... Continue Reading →
A party becomes a mission field
I dreaded going out to the party last night. Back home I practically never go out at night because I have a job that requires an extremely early start time. In addition to that, I don't really care for being around large groups of people who are drinking. It's just not my favorite thing; I... Continue Reading →
When is God good?
Is God good when I get what I want? Is He still good when I don’t get what I want? At first glance, I want to say “All the time”. But wait, is that true for me? Do I actually live my life like God is good, or do I stomp my feet and cry... Continue Reading →
Mean people and far away places
I can't stop thinking about this girl I met last night. First I'll explain where I am. Yesterday I traveled halfway across the country to visit my friend in Nashville. I've never been to the South before, and so I'm pretty excited to see new places and meet new people, and basically get out of my... Continue Reading →
Thought to ponder
1 Peter 4:10 As each one has received a gift, minister it to one another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. How are you being a good steward of God's grace today?

Even though we are redeemed at all times, there's something... Continue Reading →
After writing the last piece on discontentment, I was left unsatisfied with the way I approached the subject. I feel I may have focused too intently on the pain and discomfort, and not enough on the all-importance of God's glory. It occurred to me that from the normal repertoire of discontent-battling verses, I left out one... Continue Reading →
I don't hate my job, but some days I get frustrated. Like, really frustrated. After a bad day as a tech support agent, I find myself grumbling that I shouldn't even be here. It was supposed to be an entry-level, temporary position -- a placeholder until my "real life" began. Well, turns out, God had other plans.... Continue Reading →
I'm a big believer in morning devotions. Until about 2 months ago, I had been waking up just as the sun was coming up and going for long leisurely walks through the neighborhood. Getting fresh air and exercise, rediscovering and re-committing myself to Jesus... by the time I got home I was ready to work... Continue Reading →
Even though I like to think all my writing is directed by the Lord, I still want to be interested in my readers. If you're out there, what are you enjoying, or not enjoying? Please help me by dropping a line. I'd love to hear what you have to say. 🙂 Thanks!
