The Way Home

“If I find in myself a desire which no experience in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world.” —C.S. Lewis The quote above, in a nutshell, is my testimony. There is an ache in the human heart for Eden. Really it is an ache for Him. … More The Way Home

Leaning

I’m not normally at a loss for words. But lately I have been. Often, in fact. Believe it or not, at times, I run out of words. I run out of opinions. I run out of ideas. I run out of me. I don’t think it’s a bad thing. This isn’t some self-deprecating, “woe is … More Leaning

The Arising: A Call to Creatives and Contemplatives

NOTE: I first wrote this a couple of years ago (here is the original post). It is, by far, the most shared and discussed thing I’ve ever written (which took me by surprise because it is so deeply personal). I’m reposting it and did a corresponding live video this morning (link below) because I think … More The Arising: A Call to Creatives and Contemplatives

Moving Forward

Another year is almost in the books. Well, it is almost in our books–it was recorded in heaven before the foundations of the earth. In fact, before we took our first breath, He knew the number of our days. He knew every thought. He knew every decision, every triumph, and every heartbreak. I don’t know … More Moving Forward

This Most Holy Night (a “Night Before Christmas” poem)

T’was the night before Christmas And all through the house Not a creature was stirring Not even a mouse I finally sat down With a cup of steaming hot tea To ponder the beauty Of what this season truly means Christmas hasn’t always been The easiest of times Deep loneliness and pain Often left me … More This Most Holy Night (a “Night Before Christmas” poem)

The Warrior Bride

Finding Your Voice (Monday Morning Musings V.3.0 with video)

Livestream, V-logs, Facebook Live,YouTube, FaceTime, and a million other types of insta-video have become a staple form of communication in our day. It’s all very commonplace and normal for today’s generation. But for someone who is, ahem, more “seasoned” in the journey of life (simple translation: a bit older) the new normal in communication can … More Finding Your Voice (Monday Morning Musings V.3.0 with video)

A Prayer for More

Lord, I know You’ve heard my cries for “more.” But honestly I’m not sure what more even looks like, let alone how to apprehend it. But I do know You. And I know You still have my yes. You still have my trust. If I need to believe hard enough, pray long enough, declare loud … More A Prayer for More

Held by Eternity

I have a lot on my mind. There is much I’m chewing on and pondering. I have a lot of questions. Maybe you do, too. But when I’m in that place…that place where nothing makes sense…that place where I feel like I need answers…I need wisdom…I need direction…I need the next steps…I need to know … More Held by Eternity

Magnify

“Panic and anxiety NEVER advance the kingdom of God – even if attached to prayer. Prayers of faith are what move heaven and earth. When you panic it is because you are seeing too much of the enemy and not enough of God. Be careful what you focus on. Be strategic in what/who you magnify.” … More Magnify
