Above All Else

Above All Else

Be Thou My Vision is probably one of my favorite songs of all time. Something about singing words that are so ancient but still hold so much meaning, gives such a feeling of connection to all the people who came before me. It began as the Irish text, “Rop tu mo Baile”, attributed to Saint […]

Assurance?

Assurance?

It seems like the word assurance doesn’t get much use nowadays outside of commercials for car and life insurance. I don’t know if that because of how long it is or if it’s because we have found words that better relate to our current day to day language. Maybe it’s because there is so very […]

Bittersweet Symphony

Bittersweet Symphony

Growing up all I wanted was a dog. I remember announcing to my dad, at age three, that I wanted one and when he told me no, I replied that I was just gonna pray until God gave me one and there was nothing he could do about it. I proceeded to pray for a […]

Breath

Breath

You never quite realize just how much you take the ability to breath for granted until you are at the bottom of a pool, frantically searching for a can of soda. To rewind a little, this 4th of July I spent with friends, bbqing and swimming in their pool. Someone thought it would be funny […]

Treacherous Waters and Grumpy Nappers

Treacherous Waters and Grumpy Nappers

I have never felt like I could relate to Jesus more than in this passage. If you read the rest of the chapter before this section, you see that he spends the whole day preaching and telling parables and finally when He gets a chance to relax, He gets stuck in a life-threatening storm. There […]

The Rock Of Life

The Rock Of Life

Some of my favorite stories in the Bible come from the time the Israelites spent in the desert. It seemed like it was one crazy miracle after another and I was always so impressed with God’s patience with the fickle people. Although if I’m honest, after a month in that desert, I probably wouldn’t be […]
