Why Jesus is More Than the Light at the End of the Tunnel

Life is hard. I don’t have to tell you twice. You might feel the weight of that sentence every single day. You’ve likely felt the pain of a breakup, job loss, move, loss of a loved one, abuse, difficult friendship, betrayal, financial insecurity, injury or sickness, or difficult transition.

Re-Aligning Our Priorities to Pursue Godliness

Sigh. Yet again, I had to rush through my quiet time to get ready for class this morning. I felt a temporary twinge of guilt for cutting this time short. But I did nothing about it. In fact, I did it the next day and the next day and the day after that. Why do... Continue Reading →
