When It’s Hard to Be Thankful

Whenever I hear the clink of metal against stainless steel, it all comes flooding back. The doctor walked into the exam room uncomfortably avoiding any eye contact as I sat shivering and hunched over on the stool in the corner of the stark exam room. He leaned against the cold, steel table and his watch […]

3 Things Every Believer Must Pursue, The Unexplainable Church

Paul’s prayer in the Ephesian letter jumped off the page at me. In Ephesians 1, he breaks out in praise over what God accomplished in Christ, yet prays for every believer to fully grasp it all. In other words, Paul says, there are aspects of your salvation you have not yet realized and these are […]

The Unexplainable Church, Why Doesn’t God Show Up?

Why hasn’t God shown up? The Philippian Church needs Paul to answer this question. They want to know why God has not chosen to intervene in Paul’s circumstances. And if you are anything like me, you’ve got some circumstances in which you’re also wondering if and when God is going to show up! That One Time […]

How I Finally Embraced An Unexplainable Life

What I’m going to share with you today isn’t easy, so please be gentle with me. But the truth hurts sometimes, and if I can’t write about real struggles, then I don’t want to write at all. Sometimes being honest is the most unexplainable thing we can do. God brought me to an ugly realization […]

What Does Your Unexplainable Life Look Like?

Am I the only  weirdo who asks, “What am I exactly supposed to be doing here anyway?” Or, “Is this really all life is, because it doesn’t feel very “unexplainable”, but rather predictable or dare I say, boring.” I know all of the pat answers: make the world a better place, glorify God, or tell […]
