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…

Nice to Write to You Again

Hello, everyone! You may have noticed that I haven’t posted for a while. Well, I’ve got an excellent excuse: I was busy graduating high school! Now that I’m done high school, I’m going to start working full time next week. I hope to be able to post more often, but I’m really not sure how…

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…

The Light of Christmas

Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life. – John 8:12 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. – John 1:5 When they saw the star, they rejoiced…

Condemnation vs. Conviction

Have you ever had a thought or an urge, and you weren’t sure whether it was from God or from Satan trying to fool you? I have.  For example, I might sit down to read a good book. Then, something in the back of my mind says, “You shouldn’t be reading that. You should be…

The Cleaning Kids

The other day, my brother and I arrived at work (read more about my job here) and saw that one woman who works in the office had brought her little daughter. We’ve met the girl before, and she’s very cute! She didn’t want to talk to us, but we could hear her asking her mom questions…

What I Do for My Devotions 

Being able to talk with God and read his words whenever we want is pretty amazing, isn’t it? Even though I’m not perfect, and sometimes my devotions are more out of habit than devotion, I do really enjoy spending time alone with God.  Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear…

Lessons from Job

I’ve been studying Job for quite some time now, and I have finished at last. It’s a fascinating book, and I learned a lot. Some things in the last few chapters have struck me, and I wanted to share some of them with you! At the end of the book, after all Job went through,…
