When You’re Waiting to Bloom

“Since ancient times no one has heard, no ear has perceived, no eye has seen any god besides You, who acts on behalf of those who wait for Him.” – Isaiah 64:4 NIV It seems we’re always waiting. Waiting for better days or better opportunities. Waiting for tides to turn or time to pass. We […]

Is A Marathon In Your Future?

“You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised.”  Hebrews 10:36 I have never, ever, ever ran a marathon. I don’t think I will ever, ever, ever run a marathon. It’s too hard, hard, hard. I’m too soft, soft, soft. Get the picture? […]

Why You Should Never Accept Ordinary

Can we get a coffee and chat? I mean, just you and I sitting on a couch gabbing away? Let’s talk, because I’ve been meaning to tell you something. I know you’ve been feeling ordinary lately. It happens to all of us. The routines, the schedules, the “I don’t know when it happened” melting of […]
