In God I Trust

The past year has been a tough one for me. I've had highs and lows that have sculpted me into a man who I would not have recognized months before. I did one of the best things in my life and possibly one of the most dangerous: I asked God for something. *gasps* I know… Continue reading In God I Trust

My Identity in Him, Her, and Them

Until recently, I've been desperately searching for a sense of meaning while loneliness, hopelessness, and restlessness swallowed me whole. Sickness moved in as I began losing confidence in myself and the world around me. I lost my ability to interact with others as people have been become more apathetic and the notion of the United… Continue reading My Identity in Him, Her, and Them

He Loves Me…He Loves Me Not Part 2

He said, “Your different and special in every way imaginable. I want you Christina, I want ALL of you not just bit and pieces like you give everyone else.” My stomach DROPPED...I sat in silence. In the past I struggled with allowing people to love me. He won't be faithful. I'm not good enough. Can I be enough for just ONE person? He spent all this time trying… Continue reading He Loves Me…He Loves Me Not Part 2

Pray WITHOUT ceasing

I've been very transparent about my struggles on here. I even admitted that my posting schedule has dropped significantly because of these struggles. Yesterday, I was talking with a mentee about love, life, and everything in between. God and the concept of prayer came up. While encouraging him through my weakest moments, something I told… Continue reading Pray WITHOUT ceasing

Hurricane Harvey & Contradictory Christianity

I've been hearing the same sentiments over and over. Online or in person, people have a bad taste in their mouths about Christianity. Why? Because the "Pastors are pimps. "Congregation is judgmental." and "no one is Christ-like anymore". What caused this thought was Twitter hanging Pastor Joel Osteen out to dry for not opening his… Continue reading Hurricane Harvey & Contradictory Christianity

Religious Bystanders in Politics

This weekend I spent a lot of time just existing. It's good to take some time off of writing to recharge the battery and refill the heart. In the midst of that, I found myself hurting. The more stories I read of misfortune, the more my heart hurts. I really question shouldn't every Christian feel… Continue reading Religious Bystanders in Politics
