CHOICES | Themed Contribution

In His great love, God has given us as Christians the privilege and responsibility of sharing in His work, of telling others about Him, through our words and our lives. This is a weighty thing, more important than any earthly occupation we’ll ever have. I think that can be quite overwhelming sometimes, so I’m very […]

SOCIAL ISSUES | Themed Contribution

Hey you, I don’t know what job you’re in. And I don’t know if you love it or hate it, or if you have a job at all. But I do know that you can serve Jesus in whatever you do, although that would probably be the more difficult option–every time. You might have a […]

SUCCESS | Themed Contribution

While on my way to deliver an order to my client one day, I drove by one of my former classmates from school. He was in a Mercedes-Benz car, looking cool. I immediately felt embarrassed of my car’s chipped paint. “He’s so much more successful than I am,” I thought.

SUFFERING | Themed Contribution

People sometimes say that the God in the Old Testament (OT) is very different from the God in the New Testament (NT). In the OT, He’s unloving, angry, and violent, but He’s loving, peaceful, and caring in the NT.

CHURCH | Themed Contribution

Fellowship is a scary thing. Being real and vulnerable with someone, not filtering yourself for fear of what they might think of the real you, is terrifying. But that’s what God calls us to do as part of His church. He says to all of us, “You. I choose YOU to be a part of Christ’s body. Yep. That’s not a mistake. You with all your brokenness and pride and shame – I choose you.”

LIFE HACKS | Themed Contribution

I don’t agree with a whole lot that Ricky Gervais says about life, but this quote struck a chord with me. It’s a reminder that you’re not alone, no matter what you’re going through. You’re in good company, when you have no idea what to do. You are surrounded by people who feel the same […]

HEAVEN & HELL | Themed Contribution

Love is an action, not a feeling. So love doesn’t mean just choosing to protect, hope and persevere when people are easy to love. It means choosing to protect, hope, trust no matter what. That’s the kind of love God gives to us. He doesn’t love us just when we’re ‘good’ – he loves us, […]

Be Still

In the midst of, well, life, it can be so easy to let it fly past without a second thought. To feel stressed by all the possibilities, responsibilities and opportunities that God gives us, rather than blessed. These verses will hopefully remind you that, in God, we can have a safe and trustworthy hope for our insecure and unstable lives.
