Sometimes I Wish We All Weren’t So “Christian”

This is a guest post by Wendy van Eyck I sometimes struggle to talk to people who believe in Jesus. Sometimes I wish my friends didn’t sound so Christian. Sometimes I wish they’d tell me how they feel instead of telling me what they think I want to hear. I find it hard because I don’t always feel like we can have a conversation about really matters to them. Often it feels like we are all trying to sound “Christian” rather than “human”. I know from experience how tempting it is to brush people off with a “Christian” Continue Reading [...]

My Convenience And ‘Their’ Commitment

I’m looking into the book of Acts as part of my theology studies. I’ve never seen things in it the way I have the last few weeks. It is amazing what God can do with people fully yielded to Him.

There are times I’ve had my opinions about others Continue Reading [...]

OTHERS | What The Assignments God Gives Us Reveal [Part 3]

I'd like to think that I am God's sole focus. That God has nothing better to do in multiverse but love me and wait for me to give Him an assignment. To meet my needs. If the rest of the world is anything like me, God must have His hands full. Somehow He seems to care about people who He actually sends other people to them. Like I've said before, when the hurting pray, God sends people. This makes me wonder and shudder; at the thought of how much hurt I've allowed to continue because of my unresponsiveness. I'm freaking out at the thought I haven't Continue Reading [...]
