You’ve Been Given This Mountain…but You’re Not Expected to Move It (Soul. Musings. 05/21/17)

So, you’re struggling to carry on. You’ve gone over everything again and again. You’ve checked in with God throughout the day and asked him to show you where you need to make a 360 or why your faith is being tried.

You’re in desperate need of someone to talk to, so you bring it up to your pastor or small group. In an attempt to encourage you, someone grabs your hand and tells you, “God gives his toughest battles to his strongest soldiers.”  Read more…

Stop Being Judgmental — A Word on Heart Opening (People. Matter. 01.17.17)

PM011717

Dietrich Bonhoeffer is one of my all-time favorite theologians. If you’re not all into religion, though, he’s still one of the best writers on theological subjects and life in general. It turns out that he had something profound to say about being judgmental too… Read more…

Trust Day by Day (365 Days of Daring Faith — DAY 363)

trust-day-by-day

Matthew 6:11 (NLT)
Give us today the food we need.

God can see the end from the beginning, but He gives us just enough light, strength, grace, and provisions for this day. Not tomorrow. Not next week. Not next month. Not next year. Not a decade from now. He wants us to trust Him for today. And then keep on trusting Him every day. Trust is not a one and done process; it is an active process that continues on and on in order for it to produce effective results in our lives. Read more…

To Know Him Deeply (365 Days of Daring Faith — DAY 342)

to-know-him-deeply

Habakkuk 3:2a (NLT)
I have heard all about you, Lord. I am filled with awe by your amazing works.

God doesn’t just want to be Lord of our lives; He wants to be our very best friend. Sometimes, when we think about God or even speak about God, we tend to put Him in a narrow box and place Him far away in the heavens as One who is disconnected and unconcerned about humanity. But God is not like that. He gives us vision and sets dreams in our heart and stands close by ready and willing to help us fulfill it. Read more…

Give Other People a Break (365 Days of Daring Faith — DAY 337)

give-other-people-a-break

James 3:17 (NLT)
But the wisdom from above is first of all pure. It is also peace loving, gentle at all times, and willing to yield to others. It is full of mercy and the fruit of good deeds. It shows no favoritism and is always sincere.

We live in a far from perfect world among far from perfect people with a far from perfect self. What most of us need to learn to give and to receive more than judgment, hatred and criticism is love, kindness, and mercy. It isn’t because we deserve it or because we feel other people deserve it but because that is what we need, and it is wise to give people what they need to get through life. Read more…

Random Thoughts on Thanks (365 Days of Spirited Living — DAY 329)

random-thoughts-on-thanks

“‘Enough’ is a feast.”
— Buddhist Proverb

I don’t think there is enough that can be said about gratitude and what it does to us on the inside. I also don’t think there will ever be a limited amount of things for which we can express our thanks. Every day we enter presents one thing or another by which we are humbled. The people, the places, the stuff, the events: All serve as an impetus for us to choose gratitude over greed. To let grace that is a mother of gratitude hijack us in the best possible way.
