Prayer_Fuel

Have you ever wondered why, sometimes in life, a circumstance draws the strongest emotional response out of you?  Why are we that way?  I believe it is fuel—fuel for prayer, a supernatural exchange God created to have access to our lives, to lavish His goodness there.

Who Am I?

Who Am I

I have asked this question to myself millions of times within the last three months. Who am I? I’ve asked this question multiple ways. Who am I to counsel a married couple, when I am divorced? Who am I to speak on financial stewardship, when I struggle with budgeting? Who am I to write, when no one cares what I …

Choosing To Forgive: Part 1

Choosing To Forgive

Last night, a group of men gathered to celebrate one of my friend’s final days as a bachelor.

A Life That Prays: Part 2

A Life That Prays

Fasting doesn’t always have to be food. Fasting can be whatever has your heart, so that giving it up for a period of time is a sacrifice of love. You don’t have to be in a conversation with me long to hear about what I love. “For surely out of the abundance of the mouth the heart speaks” (Matthew 12:34b, …

Who Controls You?

Who Controls You?

Blame sounds like this: “I’m not okay and it’s your fault.” “He makes me so mad.” “She drives me crazy.” “If he would just … then I …” “If she would stop … then I …” Blame is the way we assign responsibility for us to others. It’s the way we dodge being responsible for ourselves. It’s the way we …
