the cycle of nice boys, almostships, and bitterness ends today

(Okay, y'all. I know this is a long post. I know your time is precious. I'm not claiming that these words are magical or are going to change every aspect of your life. However, I have been praying over these words for months and I believe them to be truth. Maybe you can relate or... Continue Reading →


wanting to be well.

How much of your time is spent looking at impossibilities?  Once there was a lame man sitting at a gate. Within the gate was Bethesda, a sacred pool where many found healing. The man was at the gate…so close to healing and yet so far. He had no way of getting inside; everyone else keep... Continue Reading →


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?
