Maybe you are just like me: a single heart, a lonely human, looking for love, but never being found in it. Believe it or not, your world is not ending, it is simply unraveling to show you a better way; a way forgotten by the world and even by some who follow the Lord.
Why do I cry? Because… Life is real. Life is a struggle. Life is hard. Life is short. Life is good. Life is random. Life is precious. Life is long. Life doesn’t make sense. Life is beautiful. Life is sad. Life is joyful. Life is too many things. Into life comes both hardships and blessings….
Today marks the worst day in history; when mankind crucified their Creator. In death, pain, and sorrow, the definition of love was unmistakably displayed. God did not ask His followers to murder on His behalf; He was murdered on behalf of His followers. On Good Friday around 2,000 years ago, the influential leaders of the…
The story of Martha and Mary has always been something that struck certain chords in my heart, but in a post from last May, Embrace the Reign, those chords hit orchestral quality.

In early January of this year, I had a night of fellowship with sisters in Christ, followed by a worship time. One song that was mentioned (though not enough people knew it for us to sing it) reminded me of one of my least favorite Christian songs ever. I love worshipping Jesus and singing to…
True counterculture fights against the sin nature, injustice, and the prejudices that enslave bodies and souls. It is only natural to go with the downward spiral of society, but it takes true courage, and a touch of insanity, to go against the flow.
