Peace & Retreat in Admist the Public Life

It’s going to sound ridiculous, I know. How could I possibly have the word Peace as my 2019 Word? And how on earth could I feel a sense of being invited to retreat in my soul while also saying “Yes!” to open doors and…

The Undistracted Martha

An important story with important truths is found in Luke 10: 38-42. I’ll include it below so you also can read and glean from it. Luke 10:38–42 (NLT): Jesus Visits Martha and Mary 38 As Jesus and the disciples continued on their way to…

Like Lambs Among Wolves

This morning, the devotional journal I am working my way through led me to Luke 10:1-16. What a powerful passage! I’d encourage you to go an read it, taking time after to prayerfully reflect and journal. I wrote these words in my digital bullet…

Don’t Be Shady: You Were Meant to Shine

I preached today here in Saskatoon at my home church, Westside Pentecostal. (The sermon can be found online here in the coming week.) And it was a timely word, a word worth turning into a blog post. And here’s why I think it’s worth…

If you’re like me – a result-oriented person and lover of ticking off that task that’s been scheduled in my bullet journal – then you’re likely to understand this tension. It’s the tension of there is lots to do today AND I need to…

Into Your Hands Jesus, I Commit My Life

My journal entry from today’s devotions. It was with a fierce determination that you entered this day, the day we call Good Friday, over 2000 years ago. I love you too Jesus. I can’t imagine, not really, what that day must have been like…

God’s in the Waiting

Your Special Work, Are You Doing It?

There are a lot of things to value about a faith-based graduate study journey, and there is one that I am particularly thankful for this week: time allotted to simply hearing and reflecting on the Word of God. That’s where the inspiration for today’s…

With Fierce Determination, Jesus Arrived in Jerusalem

I’ve been in the Gospel of Luke since last summer, studying it under the tutelage of Bob Williamson, an incredible Bible teacher. I include the link to his website for you because it is a rare thing that a teacher of his caliber so…

Sacred Rhythms: Queen’s House, Room #19

Do you have yearly rhythms that you try to stick to because you know they’re good for you? If so, pause for a moment and ask yourself if you’ve stuck to the commitments you made to yourself – the ones like getting enough rest,…

No we don’t, Lord. How do we?

One of the ways that I try and get my kids reading and listening to the gospel message is by having us read a chapter of the Bible as we drive to school in the morning. And because I have found myself for the…
