Get Out of Your Own Way

"God rewards all growth with pruning.” –Bill Johnson   “But recall the former days when, after you were enlightened, you endured a hard struggle with sufferings, sometimes being publicly exposed to reproach and affliction, and sometimes being partners with those so treated. For you had compassion on those in prison, and you joyfully accepted the plundering of your property, since you knew that you yourselves had a better possession and an abiding one.” –Hebrews 10:32-34 ESV   [dropcaps type='circle' color='' background_color='' border_color='']I[/dropcaps] know less now about the mysteries of God than I did as a Bible college student—luxuriating in the company of the enlightened...

Step Out from Under the Tree

Am I the only one who wonders about the dialogue that takes place between Eve and the serpent in the Garden of Eden as he stands before her, offering her a bite of fruit? I wonder why she gives him the time of day. Why hadn't she seen the attack a mile away? The enemy is so subtle that maybe the goal all along was to instill fear in people’s minds and hearts. As soon as Adam and Eve sinned, they were aware of the very clear divide between humankind and God. Their thoughts were probably racing—Oh, man, this was supposed to lead us to more...

For the Love of Beauty

Shepherd. Striving to draw out beauty, strength, and freedom in all people through truth and love. Creative. Finding unique ways to delight the eyes, ears, minds, and souls of people, all with the expectation of Jesus Christ shining through even brighter.   I have always drawn an eclectic crowd, if you will. Since I was young I always loved, appreciated and connected with different personalities, ages, and walks of life. I never quite fit into one single group. I had several different "friend groups" and just coasted around enjoying all of them in different ways.   Have you ever thought, where do I fit...

You Can’t Outrun Your Calling

I think I’ve always been a bit of a rebel, perhaps not openly, but I can’t remember a time when I haven’t quietly pushed back against “norms,” or “traditions,” or the culture. Long before I knew Jesus, I balked at convention and questioned authority. None of that stopped after I met Him either. If anything, the questions grew larger, but so did my God.   However, I quickly learned that the church, as a whole, has little room and virtually no tolerance for a “trouble maker,” let alone a young female one. You can be a zealot for Jesus, of course, but...

We Heal Because He First Heals Us

Twenty years ago, when I was wild with wonder about the Lord’s purposes for my life, I sipped café mochas with my college classmates and contemplated the big deals of life: calling, purpose, pain. I asked how if our testimonies had been sullied—occupied with abuse and loss and depression, as mine was—how were we of any value to God’s people?   I don’t remember the name of the young man sitting across from me, but I remember his strawberry blond hair. His eyebrows were thick and almost translucent; they lit up his face. He looked at me and deliberated aloud about the...

Joy in the Journey

You could say that I started figuring out what my “calling” was when I was seventeen years old. It had been lingering with me, as I hummed and sang to myself while I played with my dolls or in the old storage shed attached to our house. MUSIC. It moved me in a way nothing else ever could. The feel of music, the way it creates its own artwork in people's ears, how its emotion can move our soul and inspire us was fascinating to me.   As I grew older and fell more in love with Jesus and worshipping with His body, music took...
