Suffering vs. the Glory to Come
For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is going to be revealed to us.
God’s Ways Vindicated
Today's blog post (and my return from an extended hiatus) is a bit different than what i've posted thus far. Instead of being a personal post, it is rather a glimpse into how i work through a Psalm. i've been working through the Psalms for the better part of a year now. The fact that … Continue reading God’s Ways Vindicated
Psalm 56 – A call for God’s Protection

Only problem was i had no idea what that looked like. The idea … Continue reading Let’s Make it Personal
Faithful, Generous Deliverer!
Very often, this walk of faith is more about what we do in the times we don't "feel" like a real Christian. When life is hard and the waves begin to pull us under, when our own doubts and insecurities keep us from walking in the victory Christ has won for us, when the stresses … Continue reading Faithful, Generous Deliverer!
Who am i?
and if not i, then who? Hi, and welcome to my blog, "it is not i." This blog idea has been on my heart for a while and it's been online for a while. i've just never shared it with anyone or really did anything with it. My first draft of this introduction was a … Continue reading Who am i?
