Processing The Process


For the last couple weeks I haven’t had work or a properly working car, so I’ve had a lot of time at home, alone. I’ve tried to keep myself distracted with Netflix and games as apparently many unemployed 20-somethings do, but it’s not really effective. In fact, I’m miserable. I want to get out there […]

Choices, Choices, We All Make Choices


I’ve made some pretty bad choices. We all make bad choices, it’s what you do with those choices (and their consequences). The most natural thing is to regret and wish to correct them; everyone, besides John Wayne Gacy, does that. It’s good to recognize what you did as wrong and regret it, that’s a good […]

Leadership Is Overrated


Lately I’ve been thinking about leadership and what submitting to leadership really means. I thought about how I’ve been taught leadership works and comparing that to what I see in the Bible. There seems to be a bit of a disagreement. It seems that the general distrust of leadership is unbiblical, yet so is the […]

The other day I was leading a meditation team with some coworkers, and I decided that we should meditate on John 1:1: […]

The Exchange Rate of Love

I was reading Psalm 37:4, one of those verses found on calendars, coffee mugs, and Thomas Kinkade paintings: “Delight yourself in the LORD, and He will give you the desires of your heart.” (ESV) Well, you better believe […]

The Holy Day Off


The other day, I was thinking about rebellion and passive-aggressiveness, and the combination of the two, mostly because I had just been called out about it. I was thinking about how God dealt with rebellion in the Bible, and I could only think of a few times where¬† it was mentioned. The first I thought […]
