Afternoon Slump

I've been thinking about the afternoon walk to combat the afternoon slump. It's the perfect solution to what wanes in me between 1:00 and 3:00 PM.

A little walk, and I'm refreshed.

Every Time: Expect Something Powerful to Happen

I'm listening to a professor who has taught the Bible for over 35 years. He apologizes that he cannot contain himself; he's gripped with passion for God and His word. God's word thrills. It captures. 

He remarks that when we read the Bible, we should expect something powerful to happen. We should expect our lives to change. We encounter a God who is faithful and good and who loves us beyond measure. We are gripped, captured, and thrilled by the supernatural. 

We are changed.

High and Deep

I'm back in the Rocky Mountains, and I know this truth: What's above me--the glorious expanse of it that I cannot contain within the scope of my vision--is just as marvelous as what's barely visible here beneath my feet.

From this height, I remember the beauty of what grows in the Alpine Tundra.

You will not notice these flowers unless you observe what you trample. I'm missing so much wonder in my scrambling to the top.
