I’m really good at hide-and-seek. You know the game. No, not the one you played as a child. I’m talking about the hide-and-seek you play as an adult. Adult hide-and-seek is similar to the children’s game, but instead of the guarantee that when you hide someone will seek you out, you hide and wonder ifContinue reading “Hide And Seek”

God Is Going To Use You To Do Great Things
God is going to use you to do great things. For some, it will mean writing a bestselling book that changes the lives of people all over the world. For some, it will mean writing songs that will be used in churches every Sunday and leading sold-out crowds in inspiring times of worship.

Introspection is like exploring a cave…the deeper you go, the darker it gets. When we notice things in and about ourselves that we don’t like, we begin to examine ourselves and try to figure out what is causing us to be that way, as if it would give us an excuse or an acceptable reasonContinue reading “Soul Spelunking”

Even if we do find a place where we can really worship, it can be hard to really connect with people, buildContinue reading “When Your Church Leaves You Spiritually Unfulfilled”
Is Cynicism A Virtue?
When did cynicism become a virtue? How did we get to a place where being cynical, jaded, distrustful, and pessimistic is so widely accepted and often embraced as a sign of intelligence and maturity?
