This Is How We Overcome

“Behold, now is the favorable time.” -2 Corinthians 6:2   PRISM :: OVERCOME: On Saturday, April 25, at New City Church in downtown Phoenix, nearly one hundred women of all ages gathered under the leadership of Christ, where event speakers—brokenhearted yet wholehearted—risked sharing vulnerable testimonies to reveal how Jesus can rewrite anyone’s story.   Just as women began to break the ice in early morning conversation, Prism’s spoken word poet Kayla Koehn approached us: “Can you hear the chains breaking?” she asked. We looked around and remembered the word God had spoken over the women that morning: they had brought with them a spirit of...

The Shackles of Expectancy

I’ve always struggled with the idea of “expectancy.” It’s an idea/phrase/state of mind that has never really been an easy thing for me to grasp. Honestly, I think I’ve been failing at it for a while now.   In itself, being expectant is not a bad thing. It’s actually quite necessary to please the Lord as stated in Hebrews 11:6. However, I’ve found myself in trouble or increasingly in doubt when certain blessings have been delayed, like experiencing things supernaturally, seeing healings, being launched into worship ministry, getting married, or finding the right job. There was never a selfish intent to enhance...

The Dangerous Pursuit of Hope

“Hope” is the thing with feathers— That perches in the soul— And sings the tune without the words— And never stops—at all— -Emily Dickinson   Last year was one of the hardest years I have ever experienced.

It was relentless. I remember saying to God at one point, “Can you please stop? I need to come...

Making Me Believe. Again.

Sometimes we need to be broken. Broken and bent in order to be made right again. To believe again. To be stronger in our faith in Jesus than before.   If you, like me, have ever had a crisis of faith, you know what I am talking about.   Those moments when the typical Christian phrases of, “Jesus loves you,” and “This is obviously what is best for you,” and “He has a perfect plan for your life,” just don’t satisfy. And you may even start to ask yourself, “Do I really believe this anymore?”   And through all of it, you still do. Oh sure,...

Fleeing Dungeons: On Community

“Until the day when God will deign to reveal the future to man, all human wisdom is contained in these two words—‘Wait and hope.’” -Alexandre Dumas, The Count of Monte Cristo   52“I have been hunted like a bird        by those who were my enemies without cause; 53 they flung me alive into the pit 54 water closed over my head; 55 “I called on your name, O     from the depths of the pit; 56 you heard my plea, ‘Do not close     your ear to my cry for help!’ 57 You came near when I called on you; 58 “You have taken up my cause, O Lord;     you have redeemed my life.     and cast stones on me;     I said, ‘I am lost.’     you said, ‘Do not fear!’ Lamentations...
