A Better Door; A Better Window

Small enough that my fingers could still form two white knuckled death-grips around the bright orange shag carpet in our living room, my eyes dried out almost completely, securely fastening my pupils to the bright blur of one man on the other side of the television screen. He seemed faster than a speeding bullet and more powerful than a locomotive and he was suited up in superhero-like armor of “Honolulu […]

Amusement

If we take a few minutes to think about it, few of us would deny that we are living in a culture that is obsessed with entertainment and amusement. The movie, television, and video gaming industries along with recreational activities such as travel, golf, hunting, and fishing all offer opportunities for escape from the pressures and cares of everyday life.

Sometimes it takes losing everything to know you have all you need.

We as humans are known to suffer from tunnel vision. We get our eyes set on our goals, securities, families, hobbies, and dreams. And in our chasing of these things we often mold them into things that they were never intended to be. Families that God made to cherish and nurture become twisted idols that we resent when they […]

Unbearable

Unbearable. That is the word that comes to mind when I look back on my seasons of lament. Jeremiah, in Lamentations 1:20 says it like this, “…I am in distress; my stomach churns; my heart is wrung within me…” When I read those words it’s like I can feel the memory of it. I will never forget the sorrow and brokenness that comes when you hit rock bottom. For me, […]
