It is such a busy world. At any given moment, we have emails, texts, and don’t get me started on snaps, messengers, notifications … simultaneously submerged in white noise. A brimming buzz of evil attacking what is good and pure and lovely. The agonizing undercurrent of temptation overlaid with stiff unbelief in Jesus who died … Continue reading when you don’t know, ask Him
Maybe she left when you were young Or pretended to love Still living but far away Died a day that shall stay etched in your mind for the rewind button is a temptation Couldn’t we have laughed more?

Remember that whole seminary thing? You thought you knew. God laughed at you. Ok satan, my Jesus … Continue reading When You Act Before A Prayer is Answered
