Missing something?

Ready to go back to school? As the school year quickly approaches, I find myself going over endless mental checklists. Do I have the right math workbook for the 6 year old? Does my 6 year old remember the math facts we learned last year? What about my middle school child? Will they be able to stand against the pressures of their peer group? What about gym shoes? Does everyone have clothes that fit? The list goes on and on, yet in the midst of all the planning and schedule, there are a handful of key things I feel sometimes get overlooked when we start to plan our school years. It’s not just about academics – We go through so much turmoil trying to figure out the proper academic course for our kids. But fast forward twenty years from now, and let’s say your son is married, has 2 children,

What Are We Waiting For?

In case you’re new, or just haven’t put all the pieces together, I’ll tell you a little bit about myself. I’m a 21 year old single girl who loves the Lord. I’ve never had a boyfriend, never even held hands with a guy. I didn’t grow up in a Christian home, but I think that’s even bigger evidence of God’s grace in my life, that He impressed His standards onto me by His Word and Spirit alone. Up until halfway through my freshman year of college, I was one of those girls who really wanted a boyfriend, but knew it wasn’t going to happen. I was too busy to maintain a good relationship, and I knew I wanted a solid Christian boy and I didn’t want to kiss until I was sure he was really going to be special in the long run. As a public school kid, the prospects

Wearing the Crown

In moments of angst, when purity has seemed too hard and not worth it, I have allowed myself to ponder the alternative, usually when I’ve retired for the evening. It’s gone something like this… “You know, I could just blow it all right now. Does it really matter? I could walk into any one of the college parties and dance with some guy and have sex tonight if I felt like it” Most people who know me don’t believe I’d ever think that. My crucified self doesn’t, but my flesh does. No matter how much you know about who God is and why purity matters to Him, you can still be deceived. You and I aren’t perfect. We are not above this sin. Shakespeare once wrote, “Uneasy lies the head that wears the crown.” When I get angsty and rebellious like this, it’s because I’m wearing the crown. I could

His Grace is Sufficient

It’s a pretty common verse, 2 Corinthians 12:9. God tells Paul, “My grace is sufficient” What does sufficient mean? The dictionary says, “adequate for the purpose; enough” His grace is adequate for the purpose. What purpose? Every purpose. I am nearing the half way point of my last semester of college, and I have to tell you, it is exhausting. I am a leader on the track team and campus ministry and church worship team and trying to write my enormous research paper and do other classes and enjoy my friends because in less than three months, this will all be gone. I am tired. And this is where the enemy tries to sneak his way in. He crawls in at nighttime, reminding me of the past. He tries to tell me that I have earned my time to do with as I please, even if that movie isn’t the
