How I Took a Week off from God

I want to preface this post by saying that this is not an instructional post. This is not, "Oh I took a week away from God for myself and here are my great results!" This is a post about admitting to my own complacency and even ignorance. On a side note, I am trying to... Continue Reading →

God Washing Depression Away

Several weeks ago, the church I go to at school did the service a little differently. Instead of the typical announcements to worship to sermon to benediction or some slight variance of that, they took a different approach. We were talking about some of the different promises given to us by God through the book... Continue Reading →

Day 31: Where We Go From Here

Happy Halloween! And happy Day 31 of the daily posts through the month of October. With the conclusion of this month, I just want to take some time in this post to briefly talk about some of what I learned and got out of this month, as well as what's next. I started the daily... Continue Reading →

Day 30: God’s Story, Not Ours

I'll start this post out by saying that the original idea for this post came from the book Crazy Love by Francis Chan, so I'll be paraphrasing a lot of that. However, I'll also be sure to interject a lot of my own thoughts. In one of his chapters, Chan talks about how a lot of... Continue Reading →

Day 29: Playing With No Pressure

The first game was a loss after Delaware scored on a penalty after a questionable handball call. The second game, we took a 1-0 lead in the second half, but then I got scored on...

Day 27: Having Structure

One of the most helpful things I’ve found in my life in helping to keep track of what all is going on is to fall into a routine. Part of what is so appealing to me about routine is knowing that there’s a structure to my day that I can follow. To some degree, I... Continue Reading →

Day 26: Head Space

Lately, I've had a lot of different things going on all at once. I have a lot of work to do in a short amount of time. Effectively, I'll also be getting no work done this weekend as I'm headed with the club team here from Messiah to Delaware for our regional tournament. It's a... Continue Reading →

Day 25: Trust

Trusting people, particularly in relationships, used to be really difficult for me. One relationship in high school where I was cheated on twice was enough to severely damage my ability to trust. For a while, it affected my ability to trust in people at all. Eventually, I could begin to loosely trust others, but it... Continue Reading →
