Are You Hiding?

Are you hiding today? We hide for many reasons. In terms of our sins- we hide because we do not believe God will forgive us. We do not understand who God is! As Christians, in terms of our marriage- we hide because we do not trust the spirit of God inside our spouse. We do not believe the vows spoken for “better or worse” and think we must live in a facade of “better.” Keep reading, friends!

the Pursuit of Cool

Is it OK to desire to be cool?

From a biblical prospective there is no encouragement to be cool.  The Bible is clearly a book written for all time, it is the inspired word of God. It is like the perfect little black dress- timeless.  We are never encouraged to be hip or part of the in crowd.  Instead  we realize while reading the word that Jesus was not a fad -"Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever."  (Hebrews 13:8)   And simply put, that is my answer.  My pursuit of cool is outside my pursuit of God. 

the Grudge Game

I am a college football fan and more importantly an LSU fan.  If you know me, you already know this about me.  It is an oddity, I’m sure.  But I love football.  I love the game, the strategy, the play calling, the God given talent on display in those young athletes on the field and those purple and gold tigers! If I had been born a bit more coordinated, muscular or male, I’d have played football- quarterback for sure!  

Sin is crouching

I have told this story on numerous occasions and I love the laughter and the follow up question “can we see the scar?”  But as I think back on this crazy trip I can’t stop from looking at it more deeply- so bear with me -  there are things that desire to hurt you!  This thing, for the purpose of this blog, is sin.   Sin is always crouching at the door, desiring to crush you! (Genesis 4:7)  This is nothing new
