The Journey to Trust

Trust. Five letters that used to send me running for the hills.  My experience with trust over the years has been somewhat like a bad boxing match. You know, the kind you almost can’t stand to watch because one person is getting trampled.

Why I Believe In Jesus

Why Jesus? A fair question, and one that I believe should be asked by anyone investigating this concept called Christianity, or religion in general. Let me come right out and say that I do not like the term religion. Controversial, maybe, but I do not consider myself “religious”. The phrase “she’s religious” makes me cringe.

If you were to ask the people closest to me, they might tell you that I tend to over analyze most things, but since you can’t ask them, I will categorize some of my thought patterns as “deeper thinking” instead (they…… Continue reading Messing Up God’s Plan
