Concerned about another software company ripping me off, I awake at 4:17am. I prefer to sleep, but make my way to the coffee machine and into my office to check on a refund. No such luck – no refund. The tension is rising. The root cause is not the money or principle, it’s the time […]
Driving from Kigali towards Musanze, I grab the handrail as the tattered jeep sends us air born in our seats, hitting every pothole along the way. I spot a waterfall and ask Emmanuel, the driver, to pull over to take pictures. Excited, I jump out of the vehicle to capture the perfect shot. Suddenly we […]
“I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.” – John 15:5 When Jesus said nothing, he meant NOTHING! And when we refuse to abide in His ways, we are destined to produce rotten apples. […]
Beautiful Savior how we long for your ways of righteousness. Flowing is the current that leads us to deeper water. Let us rest in the solitude of salvation and hear our cries. Oh Lord, we must not worry about tomorrow and seek forgiveness when we stumble. Satisfy our hearts today, oh Lord, with your songs […]
How ironic. Just a few weeks ago I blogged about turning trials into triumph. Today, I’m typing this one flat on my back to share my revelation of turning back pain into empathy. Sounds like a trial to me! Thankfully, compared to many people, my lifetime contains a few minor injuries, illnesses, and surgeries. Not […]
God help me! Not because I’m down and out or hitting rock bottom. Not because I don’t have an abundance to live a good life. Not because I don’t have people who love and support me. So what’s the problem? That’s the exact question that my dear Mentor Diane Hale used to ask me when […]
What is the purpose of our story? Constant pressure reveals to us time and space that encapsulate a mission and a purpose to pursue. I recognize a gift of tumultuous energy just bursting at the seams. I don’t know where it comes from or where it’s going, but I know that this is part of […]
Spiritual growth is very similar to successfully running a marathon race, allow me to explain… Many years ago, I trained to run the Disney full marathon race. It was a spontaneous decision with no prior experience unless you count my half-hearted attempt at high-school track and field. I knew that I would never train for […]
The Word for the week comes to us by none other, the Father above. True peace can be achieved through the love of Christ that removes fear and anxiety from our lives. Through God, we can live upon His strength vs. our own and He will carry our burdens. How do we do live in His […]
I hear people often say “I need to find inner peace”. The truth that I hear in that statement is that they are really searching for an external “answer” that will tell us how to acquire inner peace but it isn’t something that we acquire or strive for because that would imply that the gift […]
Recently, I stumbled upon a series by Pastor Andy Stanley that was so remarkable, I had to share it here. This is a teaching that every adult human being should see, in my humble opinion. All of us have seasons in life that involve starting over in some capacity. This unique series speaks to the life trials […]
My field…where I’m called to serve, is below my feet and I walk in His Grace serving this little space answering His call hour by hour, person by person, task by task in Divine service. Tomorrow might bring a new calling but tomorrow may never come so I prepare thoughtfully for tomorrow while fulfilling each […]
Twenty years ago I received a profound message from a wise, elderly German woman who was gifted in Spiritual mentoring. Like so many, I was searching for my purpose in life. Being in a state of ignorance, I was primarily focused on an unintentional self-centered approach towards life. When I asked her, “what is my […]
