Love Pursues, Part 2

(I finally got around to making an Instagram post for Love Pursues, and now I need to write a part-2 blog post because I have more thoughts. 😁) I said that God’s love–really, God Himself–pursues us. Imagine Almighty God of the universe, Warrior who...
Judgment Seat

Judgment Seat

When I stand at the judgment seat of Christ, And He shows me His plan for me; The plan of my life as it might have been, Had He had His way and I see– How I blocked Him here and I checked Him there; And I would not yield my will–Will there be grief in my...
Love Pursues

Love Pursues

“The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.” Such familiar words. I’ve had Psalm 23 memorized for several years, and I’m sure many, many others know it. He leads me. He restores my soul. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of...
Christ in Paradise

Christ in Paradise

Luke 23:39-43 See, Father, I have brought with Me This trophy rare; We both were hanging on a tree–I heard his prayer; And since for sinners there I bled, For him the crimson stream was shed. I heard that cry–“Remember me!” My soul it stung....

Salt of the Earth

Salt of the Earth

Recently I watched episode 8 of season 2 of The Chosen. *fangirls for a bit* Ahem. Anyway, Jesus and Matthew were working on the Sermon on the Mount, and Matthew asked what “you are the salt of the earth” meant. Jesus made some comparisons of what salt...
Forever Free

Forever Free

She died on July fourth. Independence Day. The day Americans celebrate freedom. As bright colors and loud booms filled the air on Earth, angels’ songs and saints’ cheers filled the air in Heaven. The battle is over. Independence is won. Freedom has been...
