A few things I’ve learned, pt 3 – Running TO Him

“I’ve learned to run to Him in my brokenness, failures, frustrations and disappointments, rather than away from Him in shame, regret, confusion or anger.” It goes all the way back to the beginning of man. Adam and Eve walked in unbroken fellowship with God. But then they sinned. After they sinned they did something that … More A few things I’ve learned, pt 3 – Running TO Him

Over It!

I’m over it! No, really I am. To be more precise … I’m over ME. I’m over taking myself too seriously.  I’m over caring what anyone else thinks. I’m over worrying about what I do or do not have, what I can or cannot do, and what does or does not happen. I’m over wasting … More Over It!


Excitement filled the air. At long last it was time. It was my time. It was time to present an offering to the King. It was time to place the fruit of my labor–my very best efforts–before him. The King himself had commissioned this gift. It was the very best I had to offer. I worked … More Imperfect!

And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. —Romans 8:28 In all things. Not some things. Not most things.  Not almost all things … In all things. And we know that in all things God works for the … More In All Things

The Gift

The darkness was closing in around me.  The wilderness had been  bleak and threatening before, but not like this. Never like this. I couldn’t see a thing.  Each step brought new danger.  Each moment seemed more and more ominous.  Even the air was heavy–I could scarcely breathe … Hard pressed on every side, but not crushed. … More The Gift
