All Wrong

Y'all, I think I've been doing it all wrong.  Let me start off by asking you the same question someone asked me.  "Why do you go to church on Sunday morning?"  I didn't even have to think about the answer.  I go because it's what I do. I go because of how I feel when …

Caught

My sin finally caught up with me. I'm not sure how long I thought I could outrun it. Out smart it. And, well, just ignore it. But I tried. I tried really hard.But it finally caught up with me. I expected an outrage. Punishment. I expected to be shamed. Hated. And so I hid. I hid for a long time. I hid behind …

Lost

Since when did it become so hard to pray?  I am lost, y'all. Completely lost.  So without getting into a lot of detail I will tell you that something happened.

He Chose Me. 

He chose me.  Think about that for a minute. Let it really sink in. I've been wrestling with this fact all weekend long.  He chose me.  Why?! Why would He do that?  Even on the days when I'm really good, I still don't deserve Him. I don't deserve the kind of love and grace and …

Desperate

What I have learned over the last, well to be fair I'll give myself a few years, but what I have learned over the last 20 some years is that when you face something awful and terrible you have two choices: take care of it yourself or let Him take care of you. For most …

Romans 8:28

Last week, I turned my back on God. It was bad. I mean, really, really, bad. I had felt hopeless. I wasn't sure what I was going to do. I felt convicted and angry. Gosh, I was so angry. My anger would come from nowhere. Out of nothing. It consumed me. It controlled me. It …
