The Comfort of Atrophy

Atrophy: The gradual decline in muscle; to waste away. I first learned of the word back in college while sitting around the lunch table with my fellow lifting buddies. A novice weightlifter, I was growing like a weed. I remember thinking – wait no – I remember knowing that the work and food I was putting […]


Feels Like Redemption

Exercise is not good for you. Yes, you read that right. Strictly speaking, it’s downright harmful. Take running, for instance. It’s traumatic, and the breakdown puts the body at an extremely vulnerable state. But what? It’s only how the body comes back from a beating that proves its worth. Speaking of tough exercises, try and name one […]


Special Work

Earlier this week I asked that you keep a verse close to you, do you remember what it was? If you missed it, we took it from Jeremiah, “Before you were born, I set you apart for a special work.” (v.1:5) And it’s been fun looking at all the great ways He did just that. […]


The Guest List

Some of you have heard me tell this story, but during a week of naming traits, remembering blessings and jotting down unique lists, I think it works. About five years ago, I had the privilege of spending a week on the set of ABC’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. When it aired, I remembered the feeling I […]


Care in the Corners

The Bible says, “We all have different gifts each of which came because of the grace God gave us.” (Romans 12:6) I can just see Michelangelo painting his chapel when I read that verse. It’s well-docuented that if you were to ask Michelangelo about his gifts, he would tell you that he could taste the stone […]


What’s My Line?

What do I do well? Ever asked yourself that question? Yesterday, when I encouraged you to begin jotting down your unique qualities and strengths, what made the list? If, for instance, you dislike running, I doubt wind sprints came in at No. 1. But if you love cooking, I’m betting that “recipe-creator extraordinaire” may be […]


God>You>Mold>Broken

Jeremiah 1:5 says, “Before you were born, I set you apart for a special work.” What a powerful verse, don’t you think? Good for us all on a Monday. I want you to keep this verse close to your heart this week, because everything we talk about is going to point us back to a […]


Help Is Near

I confess, I tried to avoid it. Honestly, I did everything I could, but I just couldn’t shake the flu that bit me last weekend. So yesterday, I dragged myself to the good doctor. Had a good streak going, too. I hadn’t been to the doctor for something normal since 2010. And as it turns […]


But Even If He Doesn’t

But even if he doesn’t, we want you to know, Your Majesty, that we will not serve your gods or worship the image of gold you have set up. –Daniel 3:18 Read: Daniel 3 Dr. Charles Stanley says, “Be obedient and leave the consequences to God.” Kinda sums it up doesn’t it? Go ahead and […]


Breathless

“Weeping, she began to wet his feet with her tears and wiped them with the hair of her head…” –Luke 7:38 Read: Luke 7 Back in graduate school, we had our share of underwater weighing assignments. Underwater weighing is regarded as the most valuable tool at determining body composition. However, in order for the subject to […]
