Day 7: Love Strong

Love: it’s a super weird thing. With some people we encounter, love is natural, consistent, special. Regarding others, though, it can be one of the toughest acts of life. Human love is so often conditional because we allow too many factors to define it or the amount we give to someone else. I was thinking…… Continue reading Day 7: Love Strong

Day 1: Who is this for?

Today marks the beginning of the final month of my twenties.

For whatever reason, God always seems to…… Continue reading Their Story is Worth It

This morning I was reading through John 1:35-51 and came across a phrase that stops me cold each time I pass it: what are you seeking? We’re all seeking something. According to the gospel of John, this is the first time the character of Jesus (in the flesh) is really introduced. The first verses of John,…… Continue reading The Difference One Can Make
