Experiencing Love

WHAT I KNOW: God loves me where I am. Romans 5:8 – God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Ephesians 2:4-5 – God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us … More Experiencing Love

Holy Fashion

I open my closet in the morning to get dressed, and more often than not, I say to myself: “I have nothing to wear”. Ever have this problem? It seems like there are so many awesome pieces of clothing, but nothing that appeals to me, nothing that fits the occasion, or the weather. Despite my … More Holy Fashion

Get Radical

So whats the difference between mediocre and radical? My question stems from wanting to be more authentic. Ive been wondering, what makes someone become a monk? Or a nun? What motivates anyone to become a missionary to some random islands no one has ever heard of? Ill be honest, I don’t know very many of these … More Get Radical

First Fast

Theres something beautiful that happens when we choose to be obedient to God. He enlightens us. The way I choose to live my life is very backwards at times. I get lost in my own desires, I focus on myself and what is good for me, and I forget how to surrender. God has this … More First Fast

Christ-Like

I used to wonder: “What does it mean to be a Christian?” Some will say: “Being a Christian means following the Ten Commandments.” Or “being a Christian means going to church every week.” But how does Christianity shape our daily lives? How does it become practical to us? When we are shopping for groceries at the … More Christ-Like

Prayer Power

I believe in the power of prayer. I believe that God hears me, that He answers. I believe because I have experienced grace, I have experienced answered prayer. I believe because I can literally see God working in my life every single day. When we pray according to the will of God, miracles happen. So … More Prayer Power
