Even Darkness Is Not Dark to God

They say that when you go through something terrible, people tend to do one of two things…you move away from God or you move toward God. While I wouldn’t wish my journey on anyone, for me it was a time of drawing closer to God and relying on God more than I ever had...

Am I Smart Enough to Be a Christian?

As I write this, I have open before me an NIV Study Bible, NKJV Woman of Destiny Bible, Interpretation Bible Commentary and a New Interpreter’s Bible, Volume X… and I am validated in knowing I am not smart enough to be a Christian...

Land-Legs

Up and down and side to side we went. The swells were huge, the boat was tossed between mountains and valleys of water. My land legs got a little weak, my stomach turned, my vision got a little blurry and my breakfast…well, it became one with the sea. I was so sick I can remember seeing the outline of the island on the horizon, thinking to myself, “I could swim back from here, I was on the swim team. Or, maybe it’d be one of those walk-on-water miracles.” I was completely out of my mind and overwhelmed...

Fasting – Making Space for God

Fasting – Making Space for God

I have a hard time making space for God in my life. This has often been the case, but is best illustrated through an experience I once had. In college, I was first introduced to the spiritual discipline of fasting when the campus ministry I was part of did a week-long fast.  You read that right…a week-long, liquid-only, pray-your-guts-out fast….

Pink as Pancakes

Pink as Pancakes

My 6-year-old daughter, Linden, and I made pink pancakes for breakfast on Valentine’s Day. She was in charge of the red food coloring, and I stirred. (She would also like you to know that she is a very skilled pancake-flipper-overer.) With a spoon, I worked in the red...
