Jesus gave us the unforced rhythm of grace - Andybondurant.com

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. I make rules and regulations for myself. Read this much. Pray that long. Say these words. Think those thoughts. It’s not just me. It’s human nature […]

Kingdoms at War

Coming soon! I’ve hinted at this for a few months, and I’ve shared it on social media, but I’ll soon be releasing a 30 Day Devotional book. This book will feature 30 daily segments of a short section of Scripture, my thoughts on that scripture and a small prayer. All of it meant to point your […]

Doubt is the gateway to Faith - FOMO on AndyBondurant.com

Oh no…FOMO!

FOMO Maybe you’ve heard of the acronym – FOMO? It stands for the phrase “Fear of Missing Out.” It speaks to the experiential nature of our culture. It’s the idea that something hasn’t truly happened unless it’s posted on Instagram\Facebook\Twitter. Funny enough, research shows all the digital memory taking we do (photos, video, etc) actually leads to less […]

It is well with my soul on andy bondurant

The Downside of Bold | It is Well

The Downside of Bold Here’s a confession. Bold dreams, goals and prayers lead to frustration, fear and disappointment. I’ve found myself asking God, I thought this dream was from you. Where are you? What seemed so clear a few days, weeks, months ago feels hazy and blurred now. This isn’t what I thought it would […]

May all your wildest DREAMS come true!

Napoleon Dynamite One of my all-time favorite movies is Napoleon Dynamite. I find the mix of comic absurdity and sweet truths a great combination. For those of you who haven’t seen the movie, it’s a story about a social outcast (Napoleon) who finds his place through two friends (Deb & Pedro). One of the ways […]

Jesus is more concerned with culture than taxes

Happy (day after) Tax Day! Will all be lost?

Death and Taxes… What better way to follow up our national tax day than with this famous passage in Matthew. I hope it’s encouraging for those of who wrote checks to the IRS (my hand is up)! Matthew 22:15-22 NLT Then the Pharisees met together to plot how to trap Jesus into saying something for […]

John the Baptist in Prison...Are you the Messiah?

Prison Break

So Disappointing! Matthew 11 is a picture of a life slipping away. John the Baptist is rotting away in prison, so he sends a message to Jesus. Are you the one? How disappointing life must have turned out for John. He was fulfilling an age-old prophecy to foretell the coming of the Messiah, whom he had […]

Higher and Deeper

Jesus is calling. In Matthew 1o, we see Jesus calling the 12 disciples. Actually, this is a little different spin on calling the disciples than the other Gospels. It appears Jesus has already chosen his 12, now he is giving them instructions, and Matthew just uses this opportunity to name the 12. Think about this […]

The cast from Who's the Boss on AndyBondurant.com

Who’s the Boss?

I love 80’s Sitcoms The Facts of Life, Diff’rent Strokes, Silver Spoons, Webster and Alf were some of my favorite sitcoms from the 80’s. I also liked Who’s the Boss? Who doesn’t love some Tony Danza? Okay, Alyssa Milano probably had something to do with it too. This week, I’ve been put in charge of […]
