The God Who Is Content

The God Who Is Content Soon after I was converted, I noticed that Christians often talked in what seemed like a foreign language. They tossed words around that I’d never heard before and leaned on concepts that were entirely unfamiliar to me. Having not grown up in a Christian home, I felt a bit lost, even though I had recently been found. So I asked a lot of questions, but mostly I asked why. Gracious brothers and sisters would smile and patiently answer my questions. I am so grateful for the many people who endured my questions with grace...

God Writes a Great Story

I recently picked up a book my son was reading and flipped through it, noticing that a number of pages were folded down. Curious, I asked him why he did it. “Because those are all my favorite parts,” he responded. He’s a boy after my own heart because I do the same thing. I dog-ear and mark up my books so I can go back and reread my favorite parts. In some books though, there are no pages folded down. In those books, I found myself editing as I read, thinking of ways I would have written it differently,...
