"Go and learn what this means: I desire mercy and not sacrifice. For I didn't come to call the righteous, but sinners."- Matthew 9:13 I haven't written a blog in a long time. Grad school has been more demanding than I anticipated, especially with a separate course on top of it. I'm in my third… Continue reading Accepting Others’ Views
And He was amazed at their unbelief. -Mark 6:6 Whenever I read this in the various Gospels it always strikes me in a funny way that this is what our Lord thought about us. Can you imagine being fully God and fully human, knowing everything we worry about, but also knowing there is nothing to… Continue reading He Was Amazed At Our Unbelief
Don't be jealous of sinners; instead always fear the Lord. For then you will have a future and your hope will never fade. -Proverbs 24:17-18 Sometimes this is a really hard pill to swallow. It seems like those who aren't following Christ, and even those who are actively sinning, seem so much better off than… Continue reading Don’t Be Jealous Of Sinners
I have been really struggling lately. As a matter of fact, I was struggling to figure out how to write this blog because I feel like I have failed one too many times. I know none of us can be perfect, yet I seem to be struggling with the same things that I've been struggling… Continue reading Growing Into Knife and Fork Knowledge

May they also be one in Us, so the world may believe You sent me. -John 17:20-21 I never had noticed this… Continue reading Did You Know Jesus Prayed For You?
"No! You will not die," the serpent said to the woman. "In fact, God knows that when you eat it your eyes will be opened and you will be like God, knowing good and evil." Then the woman saw that the tree was good for food and delightful to look at, and that it was… Continue reading Is It Really A Sin?
Hey! I know I haven't done a blog in a while. I've been going through a really bad sickness and haven't been able to do much the last month. I'm still nowhere near over it and prayers are appreciated. However, I am having a decent day today so I decided to write a blog. One… Continue reading Bring Relief
Today I want to talk about one of my favorite Old Testament kings, Hezekiah. I can't adequately say his name but I admire his character. We find Hezekiah in II Kings being insulted by his enemy who says in II Kings 18:30 "Don't let Hezekiah pursuade you to trust in the Lord by saying certainly… Continue reading Not Worthy For God
Our pastor said something I really enjoyed this morning when we were looking over all the sermon series that we had done this year. Hands down my favorite was off a book written by Kyle Idelman called "AHA" which goes into the parable of the Prodigal Son in Luke. I obviouosly enjoyed it so much… Continue reading Come Home…Be Changed
Today I am looking at Exodus 4:12 which says "Now go! I will help you speak and I will teach you what to say." Have you ever felt really convicted to do something, but it felt like you just weren't the person for the job? I know I have. I always seem to remember Moses… Continue reading Now Go!
