The God I Wish You Knew

Have you ever heard someone talk about God in a way that you knew wasn’t God? They said something like… “I can’t believe in a God who would ______” or “I can’t believe in a God who hates ______.”

The first thought that crosses my mind is, “You’re right that’s not God.”

The Happy God

Who is the happiest person you know? Why do you think they are so happy?

I hope that the most joyful and happy people you know are Christians, but that isn’t always the case. Some Christians really struggle with being happy. They can’t laugh. They don’t smile. It’s almost like they think it’s a sin to be happy.

The Day I Was Arrested

My 3AM Moment

In pop culture 3AM is when everything bad is supposed to happen. It’s known as the “witching hour”. 3AM has become a metaphor for when things fall apart and you hit rock bottom.

You can probably think of a few songs about 3AM and the accompanying thoughts of loneliness, depression, despair, and even suicide.

God’s Fixer Upper

Ever seen an old building that has lost its shine and wondered why someone doesn’t do something about it?

English and a Father’s Love

Do you remember superlatives from your English classes? A superlative is the greatest of any set of objects that are being compared. You recognize a superlative by the –est ending of the adjective…tallest, fastest, funniest. When you have a 3-syllable adjective it is preceded by the word “most”… most important, most valuable.

My son, who is in kindergarten, was recently taught the comparison (-er & more) and superlative form of adjectives by his 3rd grade sister. So he loves going around and showing off this newly acquired knowledge.
