3 Sins of Refusing to Rest

Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is a sabbath to the Lord your God. On it you shall not do any work, neither you, nor your son or daughter, nor your male or female servant, nor your animals, nor […]

Good Hair & Pretty Toes

I hate my toes.  Feet in general really kind of freak me out, but I’ve particularly disliked my toes for as long as I can remember.  My size 9 shoe on a 5’4″ frame is a little obnoxious.  And my toes…well,  they are long and really quite dreadful.  It’s just been in recent years that […]

Sunday Highlights

There is never a boring day here especially when it comes to Sundays at Cross Point.  When our team arrived at the Bellevue campus and powered up all the gear, our main amp in the auditorium blew up filling the stage with smoke.  Our team quickly rallied to gather some other gear to make our […]

So, today while I was walking I found myself praying, “God, what’s the deal?  Why am I so restless, stressed, […]

What’s the Measure of Your Love?

I’ve been reading through I Corinthians lately and this morning I stumbled upon the “love” chapter.  I started to quickly skim through it since I can recite this chapter with little effort.  I’m sure my good Christian school education made me memorize this chapter one February long, long ago. 🙂 But as I began to […]

When I Go Quiet

We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness.  God is the friend of silence.  See how nature – trees, flowers, grass – grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence… We need silence to be able to touch souls. Mother Teresa […]
