There’s a Guy in the Driveway

Stepping outside for my walk and all is well. There's a crisp morning air as usual at this morning hour and the trees gently dance to a soft breeze. The pavement is renewed after the night’s rest, the overgrown bushes greet me with jovial innocence. As I pass them, branches are slowly going away from … Continue reading There’s a Guy in the Driveway

Humble. | Weakness. (Part 2)

It's so humbling that we all struggle. Not one of us can say we've got it all together, and for that I'm grateful. In my last post, I talked about the power of being cognizant of weaknesses, viewing it as a positive instead of being destroyed by condemnation. Today I'm covering humility, the hardest part … Continue reading Humble. | Weakness. (Part 2)

Unconditional Love, Supernaturally Knitted

Below is a poem put together by two writing pieces of mine. It was a project for a class assignment that I miraculously put together in a matter of minutes. That's not to say it was an effortless beauty I created. It's to say it was divinely composed by God's workings. You'll see why. Upon … Continue reading Unconditional Love, Supernaturally Knitted

Nostalgia

Today I took a walk through childhood. I stepped along the path of simpler days. Memories of naiveté and blissful whimsy came flooding back here. I had a Door Dash delivery to be dropped off at the apartments I grew up in and spent most of my childhood. Aside from in my dreams, I hadn't … Continue reading Nostalgia

Perception

A crucial perception of emotional or physical pain from my experience. Recognizing hope within the storm- even a healthy way to escape it, running to God, instead of from Him. We choose to feel the pain we have. We could decide to fully give it to Jesus and keep our sights on His goodness, feeling … Continue reading Perception

The Year I met Jesus – Best Year Yet

God reveals Himself through His creations. What allows a beautiful visitation of snow in the desert? An experience of strange rarity. Such strange unknowns that can be uncomfortable and even unwarranted by an unprepared participant. But God surely prepares us, as cold weather gradually moves in, introduces signs of more and more clouds, then produces … Continue reading The Year I met Jesus – Best Year Yet

The Active Christmas Presence

There's so much excitement and joy we can experience when we realize the meaning of Christmas. Of course, we wait for Christmas day in excitement for festivities, gifts, time with family, break from studies, sometimes work, whatever it may be, God so created us to have hope and anticipation in the times of waiting. I've … Continue reading The Active Christmas Presence

“Where you go I will go and where you stay I will stay.” Ruth 1:16

This hangs above my bed and I read it quite often. Simple yet it's still so easy to stray, taking Jesus off the throne of our hearts and unintentionally replacing Him with our busy lives. Especially in this season, where people-pleasing easily motivates our hearts in perfecting the look of Christmas decorations and preparing just … Continue reading “Where you go I will go and where you stay I will stay.” Ruth 1:16

Lay it Down for the One who Laid it all Down

After re-reading Proverbs 3:24, I had some insight come to me tonight. “If you lie down, you will not be afraid; when you lie down, your sleep will be sweet.” I've always regarded this verse to refer to the Lord blessing us with good sleep, which of course He has the power to do. But … Continue reading Lay it Down for the One who Laid it all Down
