Poetry – Leaving the Desert

6 Month and Long Awaiting Believing and Never Seeing Hope nearly gone in the shadows In the Dark, grasping Your Promises are True, I proclaim Holed up, the heat kept crashing The devil tempting 40 Days almost cracked me You are so good Waiting, never expecting Live’s change forever in a Day Eternity has foundContinue reading “Poetry – Leaving the Desert”

The Sacred and the Secular

Why? Why do we think that there is some God-given divide between that which is Sacred and that which is Secular in our lives? Did God ever mean for this to be? Were we meant only to worship God in a church? Were we meant to only worship God on sacred holidays? Or is today,Continue reading “The Sacred and the Secular”

Followers of Jesus: Rise Up and Love!

From the many years I have studied scripture, Jesus seemed to care very little about his political influence, and more on how he could impact each person individually. From the woman at the well, to the blind man receiving sight, he never failed to take into account what each person needed and met them whereContinue reading “Followers of Jesus: Rise Up and Love!”

Poetry/ Prayer/ Short Story: Great Love of Mine

Humbled and Hopeful

I come before you today humbled and hopeful. While COVID-19 has kept me almost entirely at home, it has also given me a unique opportunity to listen to God with a more keen ear than ever.

Poetry – Healing Hands

My Darling, My Child, Why do you fret? Why are you so frantic? Don’t you know My Goodness? Don’t you know My Mercies are new everyday? In the morning I watch over you in quiet; By night I am fighting hand in hand with your enemy. Take My shield and my cloak; They are yours,Continue reading “Poetry – Healing Hands”

Poetry – Believing in the Shadow

Did You know? When you created me… Did You know? Did you know I’d fall so far? Did you know I’d fly so high? Waiting, wanting, willing… Am I prepared for this? Am I ready to wade so deep? I give it all at every step. I fall as hard as Adam Will I riseContinue reading “Poetry – Believing in the Shadow”

Why I wear a face mask – Will you join me?

As COVID-19 has become highly politicized in the United States, I find myself in the middle of a war I never wanted, dreamt, or even imagined. However, as both a Christian and as a Biologist, I find it imperative as God-given conviction and as scientific knowledge to wear a face mask around others in thisContinue reading “Why I wear a face mask – Will you join me?”

Poetry – Alone: I Will Yet Stand

Do you have the courage to stand alone? To stand up for your own convictions even when they match not a single other soul? To say that your relationship with with God is of utmost important Even when those you love would tear you from Him…? Selah What if 1 Corinthians calls for headship andContinue reading “Poetry – Alone: I Will Yet Stand”
