The Human Element

I work as a cashier at a large supermarket. The job, to me, is a whole lot more than menial, automatic tasks. If all I did was scan cucumbers and bag frozen burritos, I’d have quit the day after I started. What I really love about my job is the human element. I actually care […]

Christ in Me, A Doubter

I always doubt God. Sometimes, in the middle of sermons or services, I’ll start feeling really weird. Talk to God, they say. Really? We’re all praying to absolutely nothing. Singing to nothing. Gathered here in a building talking to ourselves. And then just as quickly as the feeling comes, it passes.  I have tried to […]

How God Spoke to Me Through Pokemon Go

If you haven’t heard of Pokemon Go, you’ve been living under a rock (or a Rhyhorn). I downloaded it a few weeks ago, becoming just one of millions of players. I’m not hardcore about it; I’m only on Level 7 and I play it when I get the chance. Anyway. Today, people were rude to […]

I Will Never Be Comfortable

Early this school year, I was convinced that I wanted to take a year off of my education to buy a converted school bus and travel all around the country “finding myself.” It was going to be a pleasant and relaxing life full of dreamy satisfaction. I thought I had it all figured out. It […]

Stop Apologizing

Apologize if… You wrong somebody. “Will you please forgive me for doing that? I apologize.” You accidentally bump into someone. “Oh, I’m sorry!” You ran out of orange juice yesterday and you can’t give any to your friends, even though they really wanted it. “I’m sorry. I ran out of orange juice.”  You forget something important. “I apologize. It […]

Who Is Your Master?

No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. -Matthew 6:24 The first time I read this verse, I didn’t really see its applicability to modern-day, first world life. Nobody has masters, at least not in the […]

Why I Believe

I read my Bible at least once a day, and I have a devotional every night before I go to bed. When I’m in the shower, I listen to worship music. When I’m trying to fall asleep, I think about God. The Lord has been inseparably wound into my daily life, but I don’t always […]

Before the Sun Goes Down

We live in a very divisive world, and Christians, like the rest of the human race, are not immune to its heavy influence. I am seeing fellow believers pitted against each other by politics, science, and lifestyle choices. One voted for Bernie, the other for Cruz. One believes in evolution, the other is a literal […]

God & Younger Me

My relationship with God, age 13. “I want to hear Gods voice. I want him so bad…but it seems like I’m not good enough. Like other Christians are better…I’ve been a Christian for 10 years… I still feel like a baby. 10 years. Still feeling like a baby Christian. I want confidence, and wisdom, and […]

Things I’d Love to Have

Never have to untangle my headphones ever again Unlimited whole milk yogurt Guaranteed extra four hours of sleep every night, no consequences Bed with a temperature-controlled mattress and softness adjuster Turn all the roads into waterways, so instead of driving, everyone rows around in canoes A little bird that goes everywhere with me and sits […]
