My pastor has a phrase that I’ve heard him say a thousand times: “God will let you have your way until you don’t want it anymore.” Hashtag Truth. My life certainly has been proof of that idiom’s veracity – in some seasons more than others. But I believe that as we grow in Christ, that [...]
Have you ever met parents who had an ugly baby? I'm serious! You know you have! And did you ever tell a ‘white lie’ (if there is such a thing) to the parents saying, “Your baby is so cute,”? I’ll admit that I have! And here’s where telling those ‘white lies’ has backfired on me: [...]
Recently, I have been studying the Book of Romans and have been discovering the Gospel again in a fresh and exciting way.
