Linger longer, worry less


In the past few weeks I've been able to have face to face conversations with a vast amount of friends coming from different backgrounds and a various life situations.

Each time our conversations seem to flow in the same sort of theme. 

I can't help but notice that deep within our hearts lies much of the same type of pursuits and passions. 

We long to know where it is that we are supposed to go. We're hoping we can get it all right, rather than turning this life into some great, big mess.

It's time to give your all



Paul understood it to be the only way to live out Christianity.

Timothy saw it as something worth following after.

Peter welcomed it as a result of the transformed way of life.

James claimed it as his very own identity.

And what is it, you might ask, that tied all of these legends of the faith together in some common bond? I'll tell you.

It was the way of a bondservant.

You are what you love


They say that your identity is the fact of being who you really are. At the core of your very heart, it's your truest self.

So, who are you really, underneath all of those layers?

We each have our passions, and preferences. We've got things that we like and things that we hate, and somehow they all can find their way into what we are known by.

If you've ever felt in need of happiness



I hear the steady hum of it from the world that dances all around me, surrounding me with their idea of where I can find my own fulfillment.

In a grand wide world, with a vast amount of cultures, it would seem that this one single way of life is one of the few things that are universal-breaking through boarders and keeping a steady familiarity no matter where in the world you go.

It’s the continues pull to a life that pleases myself.

The tension of a tragically, beautiful world


I've been wanting to do a count of all the miles I've traveled in only a few short days.

I'm thinking the numbers would add up to something quite high, but no matter what they amount to, they'll never compare to the vast amount of emotions, joys and sorrows that this heart has covered in a mere couple of days.

From sitting by your friend's side while her dad lies sick with cancer, to sharing beautiful moments of truth with a small band of Christ-followers, to holding those who've just laid a loved one to his final rest, to celebrating the exquisite beauty of a dear friends wedding day.

Walking in grace on unexpected roads



When I was a girl, I'd dream up the ultimate life. That's what we tend to do, right? Picture it in our mind and then spend our whole life trying to make it our reality.

And yet so many times we chase without ever holding in our possesion the life of our childhood dreams.

It could be for any number of reasons. Maybe you've grown up to find that life is a little more complicated than the simplistic view from your childhood days, or maybe events beyond your control have gone and taken over control of the ten year plan that you were in the midst of working through.

Or, maybe we could all find that the greatest dreams come true, when we open up our hands and lay our hearts bare before the One who crafts the galaxies and spins this earth in a perfect, perpetual orbit. 

How to live a day that holds more weight


They say that time flies and we're all pretty sure that it's true. We look back on the days that made up the weeks, which made up the months that somehow turned into years, and we wonder exactly how we've gotten to where we are.

We wish we could freeze it-store it all up to be lived all over again. But the fact is that time just keeps on passing us by without us knowing just how to even pause for a moment to catch enough breath.
