2 Lost Words

The hiss lingers like a ringing in my ear, as Eden’s same infamous disruptor rattles off, “you will be like God (Genesis 3:5).” But, as the hiss dissolves into an allotted meditation, I come to a clearer impression of the world’s upside-down standards. Lost to the barrage of organized chaos our lives appear at times … Continue reading 2 Lost Words

Grasping Infinity

Infinity, is it really as tangible as hair and sand?      Psalm 40:12-13  For troubles without number have surrounded me; my iniquities have overtaken me; I am unable to see. They are more than the hairs of my head, and my courage leaves me. LORD, be pleased to rescue me, hurry to help me, LORD. Psalm 139:17-18 … Continue reading Grasping Infinity

Now, too lazy to work knots out, I find stretching my arm out and … Continue reading Chasing the Wind

Rhythm & Reason

There is a rhythm in love’s song and dance to the soul. There is a reason in love’s engagement in action. If 1 Corinthians 13 is the poetry of love, Romans 12 is the choreography of love. 1 Corinthians 13 : Romans 12 Love is patient (v 4) : lives peaceably with all (v 18) And kind … Continue reading Rhythm & Reason

Splendor in the Ruin

Whose fingertips sprinkled the heavens with the brilliant glitter of planets and stars? Whose word gave oceans the sculpted edge of their boundary? Whose artistry carved the mountain peaks and scooped out valleys beneath? The Eternal One is who calculates the patterns of the clouds, quantifies thoughts more than the grains of sands, and assigns … Continue reading Splendor in the Ruin
