For Jesus

For Jesus

Something that has come to bug me a little bit is when people refer to worship as the musical performance that occurs only on a Sunday morning. Generally it is always in reference to how good it was meaning really there is just criticism for the worship leaders and those part of the production. Often […]

This is My Reward

This is My Reward

I have been mowing lawns since I was ten years old, and I actually really enjoy doing it. There is something relaxing about having that block of time with my thoughts, the scent of the fresh-cut grass, the noise of the mower blocking out distraction, and the physicality it takes. It is so rewarding. A […]

The Art of Being

The Art of Being

My relationship with the idea of worship has been rocky to say the least. Growing up, worship meant singing three, maybe four, songs on Sunday and trying not to let my mind wander as it droned on and on. It was hard to stay focused as a child and I was often berated for goofing […]

Trust Without Borders

Trust Without Borders

“I will call upon your name, and keep my eyes upon the waves.  When oceans rise, my soul will rest in your embrace. For I am yours, and you are mine.” -Oceans Every day is an expression of faith.  Christian, atheist, muslim, agnostic, Jew, whatever your spiritual belief is or isn’t, when you get up in […]

I’m Gonna Knock You Out

I'm Gonna Knock You Out

Have you ever been in a situation where your guard was up and so was your doubt meter? This intern cost you an incredible experience and possibly a life changing event? It reminds of when I was young and was too scared to ride the roller coasters but then one day I let go of […]

He called me out

He called me out

To me, the first verse of Oceans closely resembles what God has done and is doing in my life.  God has called me into ministry, to serve God and do his work, to reach people who don’t know about Jesus, and help them come into a relationship with Him. You call me out upon the […]

Steadfast Love

Steadfast Love

Psalm 107:23-32 (ESV) 23 Some went down to the sea in ships, doing business on the great waters; 24 they saw the deeds of the Lord, his wondrous works in the deep. 25 For he commanded and raised the stormy wind, which lifted up the waves of the sea. 26 They mounted up to heaven; […]

The Dreamer

The Dreamer

I have always been a dreamer. When my first grade teacher asked us to draw what we wanted to be when we grew up, I drew a picture of an astronaut wielding a baseball bat, ready for any close encounters my mind could imagine.  My parents encouraged my dreams and fed my belief that I […]

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 Won’t Move

The Rock Won't Move

Have you ever heard the saying, “change is the evidence of life”?  I’m not sure I agree, but change is something I have become accustomed to.  From changing my style, moving to a new town, changing jobs, marriage, to the unexpected car accident, divorce (my parents), getting beat up by a near senior citizen…I’ve experienced […]
