3.15.2022 – Urgent Reminder: Jesus is Lord

I don’t think I have ever had such a deep realization… of our desperate need to get back to the purity of the simple gospel of Jesus Christ. The pure, and simple message of the cross—it’s always the answer. The deep knowing, the deep realization of, the deep acknowledgement of the TRUTH… that Jesus Christ… Read More 3.15.2022 – Urgent Reminder: Jesus is Lord

3.7.2022 – God isn’t “complicated”…

…but He is complex. A lot of times God does things much differently than we expect. His ways are not our ways. We must learn to draw closer, draw nearer, and look closely… to see Him, and to understand. But that doesn’t mean that God is “complicated“… He’s complex. 🌈 But He makes it simple… Read More 3.7.2022 – God isn’t “complicated”…

As I’m sitting here at the table this morning, I’m listening to the cheeping sound of around 50-60 baby chicks that are currently in our living room… It’s a sweet little sound. 🐣 There’s a lot going on in our world right now.

One of the things I am learning about living life in the midst of facing fears and anxiety, is learning to accept… that fear and anxiety might not always just “go away” when I’d like them to “just go away.” Learning to accept… that I won’t always be swept up and “rescued” from all of… Read More 2.19.2022 – Learning to Overcome

2.9.2022 – “Hallways”

Transitional times can often be challenging times… I think of a “hallway.” Often times, hallways don’t have windows. Sometimes there are doorways to other rooms, but ultimately, we follow a hallway because it’s leading us from “point A to point B.” We usually can’t see too much around us within these “hallways of transition.” But… Read More 2.9.2022 – “Hallways”

I’ll be honest… it seems I’ve been facing a battle within the place of my time of communion with the Lord.

God has been reminding me from time to time, over the last couple of years, of these memories with Him (that I had forgotten until I found the old home videos).

The other week I slipped into an intense state of anxiety… And then after a little while of getting completely wound up in that I realized I had finally spiraled down into depression.
