filled.

People told me for the last 6 months being a WOW leader is exhausting. They were right. People have told me for the last 6 months how pointless 90% of endless training is. They were right. People have told me for the last 6 months how much money I would spend on this week. Again,…

Fruitful

Ephesians 3:17-19 I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power together to grasp how wide and how long and how deep is the love of Christ.  A month ago, I wouldn’t have bet a million dollars that folding laundry for a month would change my life. But I left 25 days of…

Goosebump Chasing

It’s easy to feel God in our goosebump moments. I’m talking about the way a worship song can urge you to lift your hands to heaven, a cabin full of young life campers crying together in their brokenness, a mission trip changing the way you count your blessings. These types of moments are designed for goosebumps. They’re…

Construction site

I think I forget that I am not finished yet. I fear being insignificant. I fear not being enough for people. Or perhaps I fear not being enough for God..? Lately, I forget the beauty of committing our lives to Christ. Initially discovering the beauty of Christ is full of joy & peace & freedom – talk…

Humanness

“I am sure that God keeps no one in waiting unless He sees that it is good for them to wait.” -CS Lewis So, I haven’t published anything for over a month. Why? In all honesty, I would call it embarrassment – or perhaps guilt – of a shaken faith. Spring quarter, I’ve thrown God…

A Lesson in Loneliness

“When a train goes through a tunnel and it gets dark, you don’t throw away the ticket and jump off. You sit still and trust the engineer.” -Corrie Ten Boom Single-ness is quite the sit-still experiment for me. God’s teaching me about who I am as an individual for the first time in a long…

Leaning In

“Patience means trusting God even when the circumstances haven’t yet changed.” Let’s start simply. Spring quarter has hit me like a truck. I would be lying if I didn’t admit the truck hit my faith pretty hard too. Busy, busy, busy. Winter quarter & a schedule of 3 GE’s was a silly little tease compared to this…

He is Risen, Indeed

Today we celebrate – because today we are sons & daughters of a king – a king who conquered the grave. Today, we are free to live in joy & hope because our redeemer lives. Today – He is risen! He is risen indeed. God seems to show up in the craziest places – and…

Trying to Map

Ecclesiastes 8:6-7 – For there’s a time & place for every matter, though a person may be weighed down by misery. Since no one knows the future, who can tell what is to come? As no one has the power of the wind to contain it.  Boy oh boy it is good to be home. My…

A Canvas

Today, I woke up with some aches & doubts, but I woke up. Life may not be perfect, but I am undoubtedly blessed. If I were home right now, there is zero doubt it my mind that I’d be taking out this overwhelming amount of negative energy by painting my feelings away late into the…
