silence on Andy Bondurant

Silence is…Impossible

Silence is…Impossible I’m sure you’ve heard this phrase – “Silence is golden.” If you are a parent of young children never have truer words been spoken. There can never be enough silence if you live in a household of toddlers. As my children have aged, silence is still hard to come by…possibly even harder. Now there are […]

Faith is both ancient and new by Andy Bondurant

Something Ancient | Something New

Stand by the roads, and look,     and ask for the ancient paths, where the good way is; and walk in it,     and find rest for your souls.  – Jeremiah 6:16 Something ancient It’s human nature to want the new thing. We all want newer, better, faster, stronger. It’s why you upgraded your phone/car/computer/dishwasher/drill last year. […]

God is ancient and I choose Ancient by AndyBondurant

I Choose the Ancient.

New Versus Ancient Now all the Athenians and the foreigners who lived there would spend their time in nothing except telling or hearing something new.  -Acts 17:21 God isn’t just old. He is before time. More than that, God exists out of time. He isn’t a new idea. God has always been. God is ancient. Too […]

What’s the Worst That Can Happen?

What’s the Worst that Can Happen? I was standing with Kia in our kitchen. It was sometime in 2009. Things weren’t going so well for us financially. Our businesses were suffering. Our personal finances were just as bad – maybe worse. I was looking out the window. That window looked over a few acres of land attached […]

Kia and I married fairly young (I was 21; she was 20). We both lived away from home at college before marriage, but married life made […]

God doesn’t always make sense.

Miracle! Years ago, my daughters miraculously survived a massive car wreck. While their babysitter was driving home on a local highway, something fell off the back of the truck in front of her. She couldn’t avoid it, and she hit this metal object at over 65 mph. The results weren’t pretty. The SUV they were traveling in was crushed, flipping multiple […]

We all are constantly harvesting and planting.

Plant. Harvest. Repeat.

Plant. Harvest. Repeat. It doesn’t matter who you are, and what you do in life, we all are planting and/or harvesting. It might be in the natural (gardening, investing, teaching, etc) or the in the spiritual. Don’t be misled – you cannot mock the justice of God. You will always harvest what you plant.  -Galatians […]

Is God Hiding from us or is He really near?

Wait. Where’d God go?

Hide and Seek As a parent of 4 kids, it’s not uncommon for Kia or I to stop in the middle of a sentence and say, “Where’d _____ go?” We find ourselves asking each other this all the time and everywhere – at home, at friends, at church, in restaurants, at parks. It’s like a game […]
