New Wine

I reached the end of myself again. And it’s never until I reach this point that I realize what I’ve really been doing. I feel like I tell myself over and over again, “your identity is in Christ,” while simultaneously I’m actively looking for it elsewhere without even realizing it. One disappointment after another; literal […]

Thank You.

There is a reason for the period at the end of just two words: I decided that’s where I stop. It’s where I stop letting every other exhale be another doubt-stricken question, plea, and/or expression of frustration. Not because I don’t think God can handle it, but because I can’t anymore.
