I know I can't be the only one that simply wants an instruction book. I can't be the only one who wants to know what groceries to buy, what job to get, what activities to attend, who to love and marry, and generally what to do with my life. And I know that because I … Continue reading Candor at the Cross: Trust
Candor at the Cross: Prayer
"On the third day there was a wedding at Cana in Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there. 2 Jesus also was invited to the wedding with his disciples. 3 When the wine ran out, the mother of Jesus said to him, 'They have no wine.' 4 And Jesus said to her, 'Woman, what does this have to do with me? My hour has not yet … Continue reading Candor at the Cross: Prayer
Dying to Live
Perhaps you are still gasping for the air that fuels your sin nature, rather than giving up the use of your own lungs and accepting the resuscitating breath of life from Christ who offers it to you freely.
The Art of Broken Vessels
Christ’s love and forgiveness conquers even our best efforts to mar his work and place ourselves at the center of the universe.

Most of them were aesthetically designed bible verses or postcards… then I saw one that really disturbed me. It wasn't a poster for a screamo band with some obscene album cover, it wasn't a cringey photo … Continue reading The Savior Complex
Where’s My Miracle?
It was nearly a year ago I was talking to a college friend of mine, and he was telling me about how hard it is to watch people who have their lives all pulled together.

Finding God: Amidst Chaos and Coronavirus
It was eerie, sitting in my church’s ‘courtyard’, six feet away from my neighbors in all directions, using our older, smaller altar, refraining from hymnal use, singing along to the piano rather than our majestic pipe organ. Everything was so different. As we left the small service, we were asked to help disinfect our chairs … Continue reading Finding God: Amidst Chaos and Coronavirus
Finding God: Christ at the Center
I never really believed anyone when they told me I would face a lot of questions and attacks on my faith when I got to college. I knew that my professors would teach ideas contrary to Scripture, that was a given. But I never for a moment believed that someone would tell me the Bible … Continue reading Finding God: Christ at the Center
Finding God: Looking in all the Wrong Places
“If God asked me to sacrifice my only son, I don’t think I could do it.” This isn’t the first time I heard this statement, but I most recently heard this claim at a Christian conference I attended over the summer. For the first time since hearing it, I didn’t believe it. My disbelief was … Continue reading Finding God: Looking in all the Wrong Places
