What It’s Like to Wait for a Transplant

My dad needs a liver transplant. He has been on the transplant list for a long time now, what actually feels like forever, but is actually just since July 2019-ish. My family and I have gone through the excitement, the hope, the fear. And then a lot of other things happened that seemed not fairContinue reading “What It’s Like to Wait for a Transplant”

Weekly Devotion: Then He Lived

I have been moping. I have been fighting against the things in my life that I don’t like. I have been sulking. In the process, I stumbled across this devotion I wrote a while back, and it was so encouraging to me. It’s from Genesis 9:28. In the HCSB it says “Now Noah lived 350Continue reading “Weekly Devotion: Then He Lived”

Grief, Fear, and New Beginnings

This week I had some things to do, exploring new opportunities, trying to figure out what I’m going to be when I grow up, or maybe more accurately, who I’m going to be when I grow up. When I’m on the verge of something new, there’s always this double-edged sword that sticks itself straight throughContinue reading “Grief, Fear, and New Beginnings”

Ramblings of an Anxious Mind

The water is moving faster today, lake currents driven by the wind and the temperature change and the recent rainfall that we thought might drown us all. It was comforting to me. Comforting to see a visual depiction of how I feel. On the outside, I go to work and I come home and IContinue reading “Ramblings of an Anxious Mind”

What will be born out of your barren season?

Luke 1:7, 24-25 I’ve been listening to this song by Maverick City called “Isaiah Song.” My favorite part is this line that gets repeated over and over near the end: “It was a barren season, it’s giving birth right now.” It’s so encouraging, and I feel like it’s reflective of where I’ve been for theContinue reading “What will be born out of your barren season?”

Dark Days and Last Words

There’s an episode of Gilmore Girls where one day, Luke just goes missing for a day, and Lorelai was looking for him everywhere, trying to figure out where he was hiding, and finally she discovers that he is having a “dark day.” The day every year when he stops living his normal life because it’sContinue reading “Dark Days and Last Words”

Weekly Devotion: Not Enough? Or Too Many?

Judges 7:1-7 I think right now I’m in a season of time where I’m learning that less is more. I need less money, less stuff, less people, less everything than what I have always believed I needed. But it’s a painful lesson. It’s not a lesson I wanted to learn. It’s one of those thingsContinue reading “Weekly Devotion: Not Enough? Or Too Many?”
