Day four. Before you go…

For who has known the mind of the Lord? Who will instruct Him? But we have the mind of Christ.  1 Corinthians 2:16 This concept is kinda out there. Most things in the Kingdom of God are. But, before you go I want you to fully understand what is available to you in Christ. You … Continue reading

Day Three. Before You Go…

Immeasurably More. What a concept, right?  I mean, we understand “measurements”. I know how to measure a cup of water or rice. I understand how to weigh flour on a scale. I can use a ruler or a measuring tape for inches and feet.  But immeasurably more? This is what God says He wants to … Continue reading

Day Two. Before You Go…

You’ve got a lot to think about these days, don’t you? Life is a constant fire hydrant of information, decisions, deadlines, and to-dos!  I just want you to first know, I see you. You are doing great. I’ve heard it said that, “Overwhelm is a choice.”  I like that.  But easier said than done, right? So, … Continue reading

Day one. Before You Go…

I was walking one cold January morning, the winter of your Junior year and we, your dad and I, were on the front end of really coming to grasp with the fact of within 19 months (but who is counting?) you would be packing your room and pulling out of the driveway to embark on … Continue reading

Before you go…

This past week my family and I spent hours traveling the south, touring colleges, eating pralines and singing loud 90s music when the car ride felt too long. Colleges? Wait. I know it is cliche, but time sure does fly. Just the other day I was “interviewing” pediatric doctors with a big pregnant belly. And … Continue reading

Luke 10:42 AMP Remember weeks ago, when our Advent series began, I told you about my silent retreat?

#iRevAdvent: Day 19

Martha, Martha, you are worried, bothered and anxious about so many things;  but only one thing is necessary… Luke 10:41-42 AMP Disturbed. Divided. Disquieted. Take note of these definitions depicting Martha’s condition. I can’t imagine three words describing this year any better. The enemy has worked OVERTIME the past 12 months to disturb and divide us, leaving us with disquieted … Continue reading

#iRevAdvent: Day 18

But the Lord said to her, “Martha, Martha, you are worried and upset over all these details…” Luke 10:41 Just sit for another moment and read Jesus’ response to Martha. Don’t miss this moment. Jesus has yet to address anyone directly in the home. I assume he came in, continuing the teaching from outside, sitting down … Continue reading
