We Know the Ending

I look around me right now, and what I see is worry and fear.  Worry about the virus. Are people going to keep dying from it? Will we?   Worry about police defunding. Are we all going to be left defenceless?  Worry about police brutality or misuse of rights.  Worry about the government stealing rights. HowContinue reading “We Know the Ending”

I Can’t Earn Anything // A Message to Perfectionists

Today is another of those raw, real, almost-journaling type posts because I need to work through some stuff and I do that best by sharing about it, and because I thought maybe someone else could learn from this.

Praying for Other Christians // A Devotional

Reading my devotions lately I came across these two prayers that Paul prayed for different churches that he had ministered in.

Having Real, Pure Joy

When this journal prompt came out, I came upon the blog post and prepared to answer the answers in the comments. But the first question stopped me.  What brought me real, pure joy?
