when you’re not feeling Christmas

I am beyond over the song "Silent Night." "All is calm, all is bright..." Are you KIDDING me. Literally, this woman just birthed a CHILD and there's all these animals all over the place and animals are not silent. And then she has all these strange shepherd dudes show up and y'all, seriously?! I don't... Continue Reading →


this is not the end.

Enlarge the space for your tent, spread out your tent cloths unsparingly; lengthen your ropes and make firm your pegs. -Isaiah 54:2 What size tent do you have God in? Are you praying without expectation? Maybe there's a specific need that you've been giving to the Lord constantly and you're just not seeing Him move.... Continue Reading →
