‘Nevertheless, since I belong to Christ I am continually with God’! By this is meant continually upon His mind, He is always thinking of me for my good. Continually before His eye – the eye of the Lord never sleepeth, but is perpetually watching over my welfare. Continually in His hand, so that none shall be able to pluck me thence. Continually on His heart, worn there as a memorial, even as the high priest bore the names of the twelve tribes upon his heart for ever. Thou always thinkest of me, O God. The bowels of Thy love continually … Continue reading Jesus loves me
I was asked to write a personal blog for work about why I’m a creationist. Here’s a brief excerpt: I am a creationist and here is my story. I grew up in a Christian environment – Christian parents at home, Christian Sunday School teachers, Christian friends at my private elementary school. Whenever I was taught about the Bible, I was told that it was entirely true, from Genesis to Revelation. Did I always believe in the historical account of God creating in six 24-hour days? Yes. Could I have adequately defended the biblical creationist worldview? Probably not. Continue reading of writing & identity
This I know, that God is for me. You have kept count of my tossings; put my tears in your bottle. Are they not in your book? Then my enemies will turn back in the day when I call. This I know, that God is for me. In God, whose word I praise, in the Lord, whose word I praise, in God I trust; I shall not be afraid. What can man do to me? Psalm 56:8-11 ESV Dear self: How often do I fear man – what he can do, think, or say to (or about) me? Who can … Continue reading This I know, that God is for me.
I know what you’re thinking. National Treasure, right? Well, that’s about how good I feel after my finds. 🙂 No gold for me. Just books & music. And I’m quite pleased with them. (Many thanks to my good friend, D!) Check out my newly acquired trove below: I’ve been a Food Network/TV Chef fan for as long as I can remember. I even remember Julia reruns from when I was growing up. 1. Mastering the Art of French Cooking: After watching Julie & Julia, I knew I had to get this book. I’m not the biggest fan of French cuisine…but … Continue reading treasure hunter
Without counsel plans fail, but with many advisers they succeed. (Proverbs 15:22 ESV) I have learned (and am still learning) not to make decisions too quickly based on immediate emotions. In a window shopping culture it is far too easy to make a mental and/or verbal “purchase” in a decision-making process. [Cut to “STOP IT! OR I’LL BURY YOU ALIVE IN A BOX!“] I’m thankful for the handful of trusted friends and family who graciously & willingly counsel me in love for the “big decisions” and turning points in my life. God has surrounded me with wise men and women … Continue reading big decision
