Consider // Strength

“Despite our worries, mistakes, or inadequacies—we are never without the strength of Christ.” * My flesh and my heart may fail,but God is the strength of my heart,my portion forever. // Psalm 73:26 CSB Strength rarely looks like what we have come to believe. Strength can look like… Calling a friend when you need help. Rocking…

Holy and whole

May God himself, the God who makes everything holy and whole, make YOU holy and whole, put you together—spirit, soul, and body— and keep you fit for the coming of our Master, Jesus Christ. The One who called you is COMPLETELY DEPENDABLE. If he said it, he’ll do it! // 1 Thessalonians 5:23 MSG

Come apart

If you don’t come apart for a while, you will come apart after a while. // Dallas Willard

Jesus loves me.

I am incredibly grateful that Jesus loves me, not inspite of, but smack dab in the midst of my life. I stand on holy ground at this moment. I am at Camp Keystone, the camp I grew up at – as staff kid, camper, counselor, staff member, and now I come as event manager. I…

Happiness & joy

“The difference between shallow happiness and a deep, sustaining joy is sorrow. Happiness lives where sorrow is not. When sorrow arrives, happiness dies. It can’t stand pain. Joy, on the other hand rises from sorrow and therefore can withstand all grief. Joy, by the grace of God, is the transfiguration of suffering into endurance, and…

What is love

Joy is love rejoicing, Peace is love at rest, Patience is love waiting, Kindness is love interacting, Goodness is love initiating, Faithfulness is love keeping its word, Gentleness is love empathizing, Self-control is love resisting temptation.
