Question for God at the end of the day

When I’ve said my good nights and squeezed as much joy and productivity out of the day as I could … When I’ve left my tiny offering of love on the table … When I’ve fully recognized that everything I did (even though it was my best) wasn’t nearly enough to heal this broken world […]

Simple Faith: Perseverance Through Trials

I never thought I’d be grateful for all the waves that crashed over me. They seemed so harsh at the time – relentless, cruel … but now I see how they shaped me – smooth stone girl, polished peace; simple, pure, true… Even in her wrath, I think the ocean worked for God … sanding […]

I used to think this prayer was crazy, now I think it’s brilliant

When I first started devoting time to prayer as a young adult, I mostly asked God for what I wanted, when I wanted it. Fortunately, I was in a place of desiring good things like being healthy and happy, having lots of friends, a sense of adventure and an ability to positively impact others with […]

Deeper Life: Embracing the mystery of faith

Grace like a game of hearts

In cards, when you find yourself losing a game of hearts, you can secretly decide to accept it- it’s called shooting the moon. If you manage to lose completely, you actually win- it’s a path to victory. In faith, when you find your heart aching from the trials of life, you can secretly decide to […]

Fountain of life

Wherever I go, there You are – pulsing inside me, a Crystal Fountain of Life, springing from the depths of my soul – increasingly overflowing Your love into the world. The more I let go of myself and welcome Your Pristine Spirit, the more courageously I walk through fire and the less I’m burned. I thank […]

Spiritual Journey: When you need to walk on water

When we feel overwhelmed by the sea of life, it’s easy to forget that our Heavenly Father taught us to walk on water. But I’m here to remind you: He did. So no matter how stormy it is outside, and no matter how ridiculous you think your dream is, open your heart! Pray for courage, and […]
