On Election Day 2018
This is a dangerous piece to write, yes. Perspectives, opinions, backgrounds of all kinds may read this, and honestly there is no telling the feedback one will receive writing on an election day. So, here goes nothing. This year, for the midterm elections, there has been more conversation around voter registration than I’ve encountered in my lifetime. Every social platform has placed an urgency before its users to get out and vote – regardless of political affiliation, the message has been simple, and I have agreed with it. We have been issued a freedom that should not be taken for granted. We have a responsibility as citizens of this country and of Heaven to steward our lives and influence well.
Joy Made Complete
Thirteen girls sat around my living room whose sole desire was to be wrapped up in Jesus. There was no way of knowing what we were getting ourselves into, the depths we would go, or the sisterhood that would be built. The structure that was in place became organic friendship, and it didn't take long before Thursday nights were consecrated before the Lord, and in my memory, deemed as sacred. Although, I remember the talk & study in this group being formative and challenging to my walk with God, it is not the curriculum or the discussion that I regularly look back on. No, it is the flames that were being fanned by the people of God for the people of God.
