At the Foot of the Cross

The words of this poem come from the Gospel accounts of Christ's death. I hope this poem demonstrates that Christ died for us—and for everyone involved in His crucifixion—not because we deserved it but because He loves us with an immeasurable, everlasting love.

What No One Ever Tells You about Insecurity

There’s no way to avoid insecurity or delay it. We can’t expect it to go away when we get older, and we can’t better ourselves so that we no longer experience it. But here's the truth about insecurity that nobody has told you.

How to Stop Isolating Yourself

Being alone isn’t sinful, but neglecting our time with other believers is (Hebrews 10:25). Not only can we glean encouragement from other Christians, but we can—and should—encourage them also. We’re all hearing the same kinds of lies from Satan, and we’re all called to obey the same Truth.

Who You Might Be Neglecting at Church

She was a humble servant. Every week, she sat at the church piano and played beautiful music as the congregation sang along. She didn’t demand attention or praise, but without her, it would’ve been difficult to worship during services. For weeks, months, and years, she served faithfully. But I don’t know if she was thanked... Continue Reading →

It Isn’t Impossible to Pursue God

Why does it sometimes seem impossible to pursue Him? Maybe because we’re human, we’re sinful, and we're self-centered. Maybe it's even easier to pursue something we can see than a God we can't see. But just because we can't see Him doesn't mean He isn't here.

3 More Ways to Wreck Your Self-Esteem

Self-esteem isn't everything. And it should never be about pride, self-centeredness, or overconfidence. Rather, it should be about realizing our identity in Christ. We don’t have to be ashamed or uncomfortable about who we are if we belong to the King.

3 Ways to Wreck Your Self-Esteem

Sadly, many of the things we choose to do actually lower our self-esteem without us even realizing it! Hopefully, recognizing these behaviors will help you avoid them! Your self-esteem will probably get wrecked if you...

If Love is in the Air

I realize that Valentine’s Day is over, but that doesn’t mean our feelings of loneliness are gone. If you’re single, you may be especially depressed this time of year. The good news is that even if you’re still single, you’re not alone. In fact, you’re loved immeasurably by Jesus Christ. This is a poem to celebrate that!

The 3 Greatest Fears of Singles

Singleness is a reality for many of us. But even though singleness is becoming more normal for young adults, that doesn’t make it much easier. I bet you can relate to at least one of the three fears singles have...

The Only Way to Conquer Your Idols

I know how much you want to destroy your idols, and I know how much you want to keep them. I know how impossible it feels not to worship them. I may set goals, have high ambitions, and desire to change. But I still feel like I’ll always be ruled by my idols. So how do I stop? How do we stop?

The Truth about Our Smartphone Addiction

I stared at the group of college students across the cafeteria as they ate dinner together. At the full table, I couldn't help but observe how many eyes were glued to phone screens. The scene was saddening but not unusual in our society. When did eating a meal together stop revolving around rich laughter, deep conversation, and friendly encouragement?

Stuck

Here I am once again In the middle of my sin.   Why can’t I stay away From this dark and dismal place?   I can’t see any light Coming from his path of lies.   Only I am to blame For returning to this place.   I don’t know why I ran Back into... Continue Reading →

Hello, Change: How We Can Welcome Change with Open Arms

In reality, it doesn’t matter what major I pick. It doesn’t matter whether I take 19 credits or 12 credits. It doesn’t matter whether I have 20 friends or 5 friends. It simply matters that I seek Christ. Above a college degree. Above a well-paying job. Above a lot of blog followers. Above a book contract. Above a certain number of friends.

Getting Rid of Our Magic Wand Mentality

I just wish God would make my struggles disappear. I know He could do it if He wanted to because He can do absolutely anything (Luke 1:37). But that doesn’t mean He will. His plan is so much greater than that.
