  • This One is for the Weary

    January 2, 2020 by

    My own well has run dry; if you could call it a “well” . It’s easy enough to see now that my own source of water in the wilderness is a muddy hole compared to the sweet stream of the Holy Spirit’s power in the land. And now I am turning again from my own power, and drinking deeply again of His. I think this is what they call repentance. Read more This One is for the Weary

  • What could ruin the coming of Christ

    December 17, 2019 by

    This is a repost of something I wrote last Christmas. Last December was the hardest month yet with our daughter and her health; but the gems of truth I learned during that time have carried me through the various sorrows I am carrying into Christmas this year too. I hope this blesses you to read… Read more

  • Out of the rock

    November 21, 2019 by

    Provision can come from the strangest places. Or maybe strange isn’t the right word: maybe more like, “unexpected.” When you are walking through the desert; through a wilderness season, and you look around for water and there isn’t any to be found, it can be so life sapping.

  • Trusting God with your broken heart

    November 14, 2019 by

    I had had enough. The straw had finally broken the camels back. I sat slumped in my chair staring into space—my heart shattered in a thousand pieces by so many burdens and so many pains. Deep regrets fought their way to the surface in the form of tears that couldn’t stop falling. What was the… Read more

  • Divine Intervention

    September 11, 2019 by

    Sometimes it feels impossible to dream the dream that darkness doesn’t actually win.

Shortening the gap will take an act of… Read more

  • Courage Dear Heart

    August 26, 2019 by

    If you’ve been around the blog for a little while then this piece may look familiar to you. It’s been two years now since Piper’s diagnosis, and just about two years since I first wrote this piece and got my own “Courage Dear Heart” tattoo to remind me to be brave, right there where I… Read more

  • He is Good!

    July 30, 2019 by

    “You are GOOD!” She shouts it from the back seat, her eyes intense in my rearview mirror, her fist pumping the air with all her five-year-old might. And I’m pretty sure witnessing this is just about as beautiful a thing as I’ve ever seen.Read more He is Good!

  • For when you feel confused

    July 22, 2019 by

    Why would he take us this direction, only to have us turn around this far down the road? It didn’t make sense. It was confusing. We felt lost and wondered if he had forgotten about us for a moment; maybe holding the world in his hands really was as distracting as one would think. But no.Read more For when you feel confused
