    On the Edge

      I’m on the edge, My feet hanging off as I stare down Into the pit. My heart sinks, Someone get me out of here. There are vultures surrounding, Waiting for my defeat. There are ropes binding My hands behind my back. Every thought is a dagger Piercing through my soul.   I’m on the edge Lord, Standing here as You call me, As You beckon me to dive Into life. I take a deep breath and Fall forward. Suddenly the pit becomes my platform As the vultures fly away. The ropes are unraveling, My thoughts shatter, As You begin to burn within me.   I’m on the edge, And…

    Believe Again

    A Guest Post by Dainty M.  It’s absolutely exhausting and distressing to believe something will happen and it doesn’t. Or to believe someone wouldn’t do something and they do. When unpleasant things happen and disappointments lace our days, it’s really hard to believe in anything. Some people have stopped believing in love because their experience with it left them heartbroken. Some don’t believe in God because they felt disappointed by Him when bad things happened. I’ve trusted and believed something will happen this year but hey, the 8th month is about to roll around, when will it happen? I’ve drowned in despair and to be honest, believing again is much…

    The Secret to Faith

    Life is hard. We all know it, and there’s no way of getting around it. Becoming a Christian is a not a “get out of the hard life free” card. In fact, it can seem like everything in the world is attacking when you dive deeper into a relationship with Jesus. This post is running a day late because life got hard. I’m battling illnesses that cause me to be exhausted, dizzy, and in pain. No, I’m not trying to one-up anyone here. It’s not like I have some terminal illness or life threatening disease. But what I do have is complicated, uncommon, and really annoying because it is difficult to manage. But…

    Limitless Faith

    If you’re reading this, then there’s a really good chance you’re a Christian. Now I’m not a numbers person (hence why I’m a blogger), so I can’t give statistics. However, there are a lot of people–some even calling themselves Christians–who say they believe in God, but leave Him in the backgrounds of their lives. There’s no judgment here as this used to be me (and sometimes still is unfortunately). Here’s what I don’t understand. How can someone truly believe in God and not want more of Him? How can you believe in an all-powerful being who created the heavens, galaxies, and Earth and all of its inhabitants, and not want more?…

    The Bare Bones of Worship

    Life can be stressful. Correction–life is more like a vortex of stress, busyness, joy, and difficulty all mixed together. Even the good times can be overwhelming and just darn distracting. All of these distractions can easily affect our worship. Some distractions are mundane–social media, kids, work, and T.V. But what about the hard times? What about the giants of life such as sick family members, finals, or financial worries? These giants can become so big, that they distract us from God even in our worship. This happens when our problems become bigger than the God of our lives.  I love to worship and praise to music, and I am blessed…
