David’s Vision

“Most sin is born out of spiritual blindness—shown in a vast, ugly forgetfulness of God.”    Pg. 66, Holy Available, Gary Thomas “a vast, ugly forgetfulness of God.” “a vast, ugly forgetfulness…” Wow. My spiritual blindness returns constantly, even though I’ve been healed from it. What’s worse…I sometimes often enjoy that blindness. And I forget about God. […]

Mirror, Mirror, on the Wall

“What is true physically is also true spiritually. Prayer provides a mirror for our attitudes. Through it, we begin to see out motives from a different perspective.” -Holy Available, Gary Thomas When you catch a glimpse of yourself, Expressions, Body language, Your composure in the mirror, it can be startling. So much so that you […]

Spiritual Hydration

A few months ago I was drained. No momentum left. Everything God had brought us through from January until August of this year left me feeling spiritually ill. You know that point when you are so hungry, so thirsty, that you are sick and stop feeling those needs? I was there. …and I HATED it. […]

We usually think of ‘ungodly’ as being against God, but ungodly can also be a life that simply ignores God or—out of busyness, indifference, religiosity, or apathy—simply doesn’t tap in to […]

Golden Birthday

I have been waiting for this day for a long time! Today I am 25 on the 25th of August. To be honest, it kind of snuck up on me—when I was younger I dreamt about this day, and in the past few years (and especially crazy months), it simply escaped my mind. This day […]

Furious Five

There are a million things I could post about right now…instead, I give you the furious five. Like it? Hmm…I think I do. Likely this will be my new way of quickly updating whatever comes to my mind first…helps limit my verbosity. I’ll just simply state that we are in Korea…(First post from Korea!) my […]
