stop and worship

Just when I begin to think my life is all about me…. I’m bought with His blood. He rescued me from the precarious position of dangling over hell. (See Jonathan Edwards.) How can I not be content with His perfect provision and timing? Why am I so distracted by the “stuff” of life? He is worthy. Every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. (Philippians 2:10-11) Continue reading stop and worship

truth or death: Google Maps

That moment when the Google Maps traffic feature blatantly LIES. You’ve been there, right? I wasn’t in a rush, but still…. (*insert tangent here* I will never understand the reasoning behind “rush hour.” Another culture lie. You ain’t goin’ nowhere, honey.

Philippians 3:20-12 Continue reading Joni Interviews Robin Hiser

Romans 12:1-2 Continue reading you can know what the will of God is

Personal (and Corporate) Conviction

In my study of Jonathan Edwards, I came across a biographical section where the town he ministered in experienced a “mini” revival. Edwards wrote: “The town seemed to be full of the presence of God; it never was so full of love, nor so full of joy….There were remarkable tokens of God’s presence in almost every house…everyone [was] earnestly intent on the public worship.” I know I’m far from perfect; even my worship is tainted with sin and selfishness. I also know that God is not finished with me. And I am sure of this, that he who began a … Continue reading Personal (and Corporate) Conviction
