cycles

the world i live in is very cyclical, therefore, for me not to live cyclically is unconsciously frustrating. until now. God answers prayer. i’ve been in a bit of a funk, not particularly thrilled by anything except the act of completing something. if i can cross it off, i want to do it. if its […]

sleepless nights

it’s not the first time i’ve been unable to remain in that free state called sleep, the minutes and hours of peace that i often crave. no one gets on your real nerves when you’re sleeping. no one rudely interrupts your true concentration when you’re sleeping. you can change the way your dream is going, […]

help

it’s a shared prayer. i prayed it this morning, posted in on FB, 4 ppl  “liked it” and i just got off the phone with someone else who needed the same. help. _____________ dear Jesus, pls help us. and when You do, pls assure us that it’s You so that there’s zero doubt that You’re […]

thanks man?

as i sauntered home, critiquing the song just sung and remembering my desire to keep raising the bar for myself, i started talking to God and the words “thanks man” came to mind.but just as quickly came the thought, “what?! God’s not one of my boys!” my justin blogged the other day (or week, or […]

history belongs

to those who pray. that’s the lyric and it sort of scares me. there’s something to be said for owning the past and for owning it because you prayed and believed and God answered in agreement with your prayer. if i only believed. i used to avoid cooking as if it were a leprosy conduit. […]

Order My Steps

That’s basically how my morning prayer concluded. And I’ve had an interesting day filled with what I know to be God-ordered steps. I mean, what are the chances that I’d be alert enough at work to accomplish so many necessary things, tying up lose ends to ensure smooth future events? And how could I possibly […]

what if a break is good?

i’m in charge of a young adult ministry. nothing’s happened since march-ish. i take the blame but it’s not as if people are knocking down my door or tying up my phone line asking what the deal is. i was just visited by this thought: what if nothing happens until august? what if we take […]
