Today's Talk
Jackass 10.14.19

In the same way that God used Balaam and his donkey, He can use a seemingly obscure thing to try and get our attention. But often, we’re so focused on getting that thing out of our lives that we’re unable to see how it might be protecting us. When we ask God to show us what it is that we’re ignoring, He often reveals how He’s been trying to protect us from the mess in front of us all along.

The Fifth Of July

What’s the first thought that pops into your head when you hear the phrase, “Fourth of July”? For me, it’s two words: “sacrifice” and “freedom”. There’s first and foremost a reverence about Independence Day that comes with remembering the men and women who went before us, many of whom paid the ultimate price, to make… Read more »

Four Gardens

Here in America, certain symbols signify the approach of Easter. Marshmallow peeps and chocolate bunnies abound. Parents scour the stores for kids’ matching outfits and toys to fill Easter baskets. We dye eggs and prepare big family dinners. But this season, the symbol I’ve found myself reflecting on is gardens. Not just any gardens, but… Read more »
