preserved. (psalm 103:10 + isaiah 65:2)

He does not treat us as our sins deserve, or repay us according to our iniquities. Psalm 103:10 The Lord is faithful and good. When my heart is filled with peace, he is faithful and good. When my life seems to be in shambles, he is faithful and good. No matter the height, depth, demons, […]

ravished. (psalm 23)

  It was about 7 am and I was overlooking a lake in the Adirondack mountains. We had led a group of high school students to a Young Life camp there, and I had stolen a few precious away to be alone with Jesus. As I stared into the lake, I was taken aback by just […]

follower. (john 13:35)

I love my husband, but I really, really love Jesus. I love the qualities my husband displays: grace, selflessness, kindness, mercy, and love. I love them because they are Jesus.

masterpiece. (eph. 2:10)

I have chosen to audaciously believe that who I actually am, is who the world actually needs. And I think you should believe that too. You are a masterpiece and I mean that with every ounce of myself. We can hear that all the time, but it’s true and you are and I hope today is the […]

logic. (proverbs 3:5)

Two things I believe: 1. The Christian faith is quite logical. 2. In times when my mind doubts, my soul is simply unable to. I think apologetics is very important. I believe that ultimate truth can face fire and remain. I love to engage in conversations involving all the hard questions that people have about the Christian faith […]

the deep. (psalm 42:7)

I was sitting on the dock of a quiet lake yesterday, in awe of the wonder before me. I had listened to a message by John Piper that talked about pressing our hearts into God’s creation. So I sat there reflecting on the water.

luminated. (Phil. 1:3-4)

I hate taking risks. And the more I’ve thought about it, the more I’ve realized how this impacts my ability to connect with others. Connection requires authenticity requires vulnerability (requires risk). As I was praying about this realization, I could

guided. (isaiah 58:11)

There are so many decisions in life and I often find myself overwhelmed, not with the choice itself, but with the fear that if I choose incorrectly, I will somehow fall out of God’s favor. However, I was reminded today (in a sermon by Dr. Rob Rienow) that God’s faithfulness is greater than

created. (psalm 139:13)

It is often said that people spend their lives in search of their other half. I think this is entirely true. Many do. We delight in finding similarities with others. We are frustrated when their opinions and interests differ from our own. We can devote our lives to searching for someone who truly understands who […]

resurrected. (psalm 103:4)

Not only lost on my own, but intentionally deceived by a crafty nemesis, I was far from God. For those who have never experienced the darkness of depression, it is no child’s game. There was not a moment that passed where the agony of breathing didn’t nearly crush me. And in that, God saw me.

adopted. (john 14:18)

It’s a beautiful thing to be adopted. And we are not invited into the family of a half-hearted father. We are chosen by the holiest of fathers. He will never leave us, nor will he forsake us. What he has done cannot be undone. We are loved, chosen, and holy.
