Proclaimed Faith

Well, I made it a few more verses in Romans before I was stopped in my tracks.

Romans 1:8 ESV

First, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for all of you, because your faith is proclaimed in all the world.

Don’t Waste Your Parenthood

I’m sure I’ve mentioned how completely bonkers (in a good way) my life has been lately in several of my recent posts, but as part of the craziness entails not writing anywhere near frequently as I’d like, I’ll sum up really quick for you: In the span of close to a year and a half I met the woman whom I would marry, got engaged, got married, found out that Angela was pregnant about four months after we got married, and then had the little man a couple weeks after our first anniversary.

On Endings

What is this saying?

Blogging, Misplaced Worship, and the Gospel Identity Cure

If you’ve followed the blog lately, you know that with the exception of the past couple weeks, it’s been a while since I’ve written anything. I felt the pressure getting to me, and when it got to be too much, I bailed. Some of this is wisdom, but I think more of it was fear. And exhaustion. Definitely exhaustion. Then something happened to push me back toward writing again, to be able to process and figure out things, if nothing else. Walking through broken places does that, it seems. As God’s providence would have it, I rejoined the blogosphere and Twitter just in time to find out about the Echo conference that took place in Dallas last week.
