Soul Alterations

  I was thinking about a specific Bible story I really have never liked. I have always cringed when I’ve thought about the story of Abraham and Isaac. I mean, I’ll be honest, one of my least favorite stories probably ever. I just couldn’t see why God would tell Abraham to sacrifice his son at … More Soul Alterations

All My Love

  1st John 4:7 Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. Last night a good friend of ours had a family emergency. We were in Church at a worship song service, and our pastor walked up front and told … More All My Love

Don’t misunderstand me, I love my church. I’ve been to many, and this is the only one … More Soul First Aid Kit

Trust Fall

This is my scripture. It’s the one that resurfaces infinite amounts of times in my life for me. I know God is constantly reminding me where I need work. What spots need to be polished. Have you ever tried to pry something out of a toddler’s white knuckled death grip? You chase them all over … More Trust Fall
