Rejoicing

Hello, everyone! I hope all is well with you. I haven’t had much time to blog lately, but life is going! I’m busy with work, church, family, and my responsibilities. I’m enjoying life, and God is teaching me a lot. He is so good, and I’m very thankful for my salvation and the life of…

Waiting for Leading

At work lately, I’ve been trying to witness to my coworkers, one in particular. It can be hard to find opportunities when we are busy, but during slow afternoons, I’ve at least had the opportunity to talk about Jesus, church, and missions. I even had one conversation with a fellow Christian about how broken the…

Send Me | Poetry

I wrote a poem recently about my desire to go to the mission field! Let me know what you think. The faces of the massesFlint-eyed children, red-eyed menCried for purpose, hope, a promiseLonged for an expected end. With compassionate countenanceGod said, “My beloved must know How I died that they might live with me! Whom…

Come, Lord Jesus!

In a recent sermon about prayer, my pastor brought up something that I have neglected to do in my prayer life. As a Christian, I should not only look forward to Jesus’ return, I should pray for it! Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. – Matthew 6:10 In the past, I’ve…

Do You Have a Purpose?

On Sunday nights at my church, we’ve been going through a video series called Road Trip to Truth. My whole family has enjoyed it so much and learned a lot! It was originally created for secular college students that they might see the rationality of being a Christian. However, it’s full of good lessons for…

Will You Pray with Me?

Hello, everyone! I hope you are having a wonderful fall. Lately, I’ve been thinking quite a bit about how the people of this world need Jesus. So many of the problems we face would be alleviated if two things happened: if Christians were concerned about living for God and reaching people for him, and if…

Our Kingdom

On Sunday morning, I was studying part of the Sermon on the Mount in my morning devotions. The phrase in the Lord’s Prayer “thy kingdom come” kept catching my eyes, and I started thinking about heaven, and how to let God’s kingdom come by living for him. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in…

A Lesson from the ACT

A couple of weeks ago, my brother and I took the ACT. Because the test kept getting canceled, we had a long time to study, and we felt fairly confident about our testing strategies. I planned carefully the day before what I was going to wear so that I’d be comfortable in a warm or…

The Question without an Answer

Last Sunday, I heard a sermon about Habakkuk’s questions and God’s answers. It captured my attention, because I had been thinking about questions similar to Habakkuk’s. O LORD, how long shall I cry, and thou wilt not hear! even cry out unto thee of violence, and thou wilt not save! Why dost thou shew me…

Vacation | Lessons Learned and Fun Times

My family went on vacation last week, and we had an incredible time! It was one of my favorite vacations we have ever taken. We went to Wisconsin on Lake Michigan. Our rental house was right on a state park, which was right on the water, so we were a very short way from the…
