Peace

Peace

There have been seasons in my life where I believed that I had it all figured out. I knew how to fix everything. I had the answers. I could tell all of “those people” what they needed to do. Why? Because I had it all together. I continue to learn that I don’t have it… Continue Reading

Brought Near

Brought Near

I was pretty awkward in Middle School. I played hockey, nobody else did. I didn’t play football or basketball. I was in the band. I was really insecure. The worst part of my day was lunch. I felt like I was on the outside looking in. I felt far away. By the beginning of my… Continue Reading

No, Really. REMEMBER!

No, Really. REMEMBER!

As I look back on my early days of following Jesus I am a bit ashamed. I was arrogant.  I was mean.  I was prideful.  I was rude.  I was always right.  I was judge and jury.  Yes, this is me shortly after my conversion to Christianity. That doesn’t seem to line up well with… Continue Reading

Grace, Grace…

Grace, Grace…

I truly love the way that Eugene Peterson translates certain passages from the Scriptures. Ephesians 2:7-10 in particular: Now God has us where he wants us, with all the time in this world and the next to shower grace and kindness upon us in Christ Jesus. Saving is all his idea, and all his work.… Continue Reading

What You Do, Matters

What You Do, Matters

When you think of your life do you think it matters? I don’t just mean relationally, in the sense that you matter to someone. Do you think that the things that you do every day matter? When you go to work does it matter? When you care for your children, does it matter? When you… Continue Reading

Embraced…

Embraced…

While Paul calls us to remember he doesn’t leave us wallowing in self-pity. No, the gospel is better than that. We are embraced by the Father who loves us. I love how Eugene Peterson says this in the Message: It’s a wonder God didn’t lose his temper and do away with the whole lot of us.… Continue Reading

Paul writes this about the “saints” in Ephesus, And you were dead in the trespasses and sins in which you once walked, following the course of this world, following the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience—among whom we all once lived in… Continue Reading
