Everything Is Broken

I think we call could agree that 2020 didn’t reintroduce the roaring 20s that we were expecting. The only roar is the wail of brokenness that seems to be radiating from every corner of the earth. A global pandemic kept us isolated while some died. People lost jobs and the economy began to spiral. The… Continue reading Everything Is Broken

Radical Response

I greatly appreciate my pastor. His preachings are biblical and true. He has wisdom and integrity. His teachings convict me and lead me to live the life God has called me to live. But he does have this flaw: he’s not Jesus. He can’t teach with the authority that Jesus did. While his words and… Continue reading Radical Response

Radical Life

I used to really strive to be enough on my own. I wanted to be a strong, independent woman who didn’t need anybody, especially not a man. I worked hard to be anything but the damsel in distress. I wanted to be the hero of my own story. I tried to live out this pinterest… Continue reading Radical Life

Radical Justice

Raise your hand if you’ve ever walked into a church or Christian group and felt judged. Unfortunately, I would guess that most my readers lifted their hands just now. It is unfortunate that this tends to be the case as we are about to read now how Jesus rebuked self righteous judgment. Do not judge,… Continue reading Radical Justice

All Things Work for Good: 2019 closing and 2020 beginning

Cuddled up on the couch mulling over the past year whilst sipping on sleepy time tea, I am left with a smile on my face. This was not the year I expected. Rather, it was much better than I ever imagined. The verse that stands out to me that most accurately sums up the past… Continue reading All Things Work for Good: 2019 closing and 2020 beginning

Radical Prayer

Prayer is one of the most underused resources and the biggest forgotten privilege. It is not something to be boasted about in front of others; rather, it is a state we are to continually live in with sincerity. Prayer is just as much an opportunity to give glory, honor, and love to our creator as… Continue reading Radical Prayer

Radical Perfection

How quick are we to rise to our own defense yet slow to give love? As Christians, we should let God be our defense and love others without hesitation or condition. But I think most people have been hurt by someone who professes christianity yet fails to live it out in these aspects. In the… Continue reading Radical Perfection

Heal Their Land

It has been quite the year as far as the weather goes which has made life as a farmer interesting to say the least. I know there’s countless blog post and articles stating the woes of the weather and its effects on the crops. This isn’t going to be one of those posts. Rather than… Continue reading Heal Their Land

Radical Commitment

Jesus tackles some difficult subjects in the Sermon on the Mount. This week’s blog highlights a section that is no exception. In fact, I prayed pretty hard on how to write this in the most palatable way possible as to not step on any toes. But I believe Jesus preached this sermon in the order… Continue reading Radical Commitment

Radical Reconciliation

I believe we need routine heart checks. I’m not speaking of our physical heart, though there is merit in that, but I’m more so thinking of our soul heart where our emotions and thoughts lie. The Bible says out of our hearts flows the wellspring of life (Proverbs 4:23). The thoughts and meditations of our… Continue reading Radical Reconciliation
