Judah: A 180 degree change

the narrative shows Joseph and Judah’s lives paralleled. Just as Joseph was physically enslaved and imprisoned, Judah was emotionally and spiritually enslaved and imprisoned.

Something Lost and Something Found

Tearin’ Apart the House Last year, my boys wore me out begging for a new game console. They desperately “needed” to upgrade from an XBox 360 to an XBox One. After negotiation, we figured out a plan, which included selling all of our old gaming equipment. That weekend, we gathered all of our stuff and headed out […]

Grace | Unforced Rhythms

Grace is an Unforced Rhythm Sometimes I try way too hard. Specifically I refer to connecting with God. I’m forced. I’m rigid. I’m unnatural in my approach to Him.

Remember when life was full by felt so empty?

Remember When Life Wasn’t Hard, but We Thought It Was?

Life Happens So Fast! Everyone experiences this. You endure a really difficult season of life. Years pass, and a realization hits – you had no idea what hard was. This was college for me.

Andrew Matters

We Just Need Jesus. The other morning, while on a work/vacation trip in California, Kia and I walked down to the beach after breakfast.

What seemed so clear a few days, weeks, months ago feels hazy and blurred now. This isn’t what I thought it would […]
