Bloom Where Planted

Bloom Where Planted

I’ve told people before: “God can use you anywhere!” “Where you’re at doesn’t matter as much as what you’re doing.” And a favorite quote from a Bible School teacher on where to serve as a missionary, “The worst that could happen is if you go to the wrong place, the wrong people get saved!” But [...]

Overwhelming Love

Overwhelming Love

Things change in life. But one thing doesn’t, and that’s God. As I’ve recently been reading about Jesus, I’ve been blown away at who He really is.

Even the Bible is not the end-all, it’s [...]

Encouragement

Today I feel like doing something a little different, I feel like sharing some verses that have been huge encouragements to me. “O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, which giveth [...]

Reality

Have you ever noticed how me-centric a blog or even facebook can be? The danger of a blog is that it makes it so easy for people to form what they want others to think about them. Even though I don’t lie or make stuff up on my blog, it’s still easy to give a [...]
