When Life Uproots You, but Jesus Replants You

When Life Uproots You, but Jesus Replants You

Today my devotional said: “The option always exists for us to tolerate and stay attached to things that everybody else seems to be enjoying without any visible sign of loss, guilt, or diminishment.”   Years ago my life was uprooted. It was done by human hands and it was unfair. I can say this with confidence because I spent two years in deep therapy with Jesus after it happened. One of the hardest things to let go of was my sense of justice. It wasn’t fair that my life was wrecked. It wasn’t fair that the people who were involved...

When the Waters are Raging

When the Waters are Raging

Last night we walked down to the river after supper. We don’t live near just any river.  A quick 10 minute drive, and we are looking at class IV rapids that draw kayakers and adventure athletes from around the world to play and compete. In fact, one of our people holds the Title 2019 ICF Canoe Freestyle Junior Men World Champion, largely because of the time he spends training in our river.   I tell you this to set the stage for today’s pondering.  Last night, the Chattahoochee was just raging. While the kids love to climb the rocks at...

Unexpected Blessings

Unexpected Blessings

It was supposed to be just a quick run into the mall to grab some make up. However, on my way out, I saw an older lady struggling to walk inside.

While I got into my car, the cab driver parked and I realized he would wait outside, then drive her...

Earning the Right to Hold Hands

We were in Zambia, eating pizza as word kept coming in about how the Corona Virus was affecting everything around us.  I was helping Jean restructure our plans for teaching, and he was sharing new pieces of his story with me about his time in Zambia when he nudged me to look at Jessica and Eliza.  In the middle of an outdoor restaurant, there they sat, holding hands, tears flowing, life altering conversations happening. The world was falling apart, but they had the insight to see the more important thing for them in that moment.     I know Jess. ...

How to be a Truth Seeker when the World has Lost it’s Actual Mind

How to be a Truth Seeker when the World has Lost it’s Actual Mind

Does anyone else feel overwhelmed by news, opinions, and the realization that you don’t know what you can actually trust?  Everyone has an agenda, everything is spin. There are underground bunkers somewhere and computer nerds are generating bots to churn out misleading drama....it can go dark if you let it... No matter the motivation, I’m so tired of feeling like the only way to know what is real is by trying to become an expert on all the things. I think we either tend to shut down because it’s overwhelming, or we become obsessed.   One side effect I have...
