Siphonophore

Luke and I were watching a tv school last night that shows weird things of the earth. One of them caught my attention. The siphonophore. The siphonophore is a beautiful creature that is a colony of animals together. Each with its own job. For example, the nectophores that help the colony travel through water cannot…

Are we spiritually Desensitized? 

The more I learn about the human body in my pathophysiology class, the more it amazes me. Take allergies for example. Did you know that clinical desensitization to allergens can be achieved in some people? Small quantities of the allergen are injected in increasing doses over a prolonged period of time. This procedure may reduce…

Spiritual Heimliuch Maneuvers

Have you ever choked? Once I was in the library at OU studying for my human anatomy exam, I was eating popcorn and a piece was lodged in my throat. I was wheezing and could barely cough. I thought I was interrupting people studying so I went to the bathroom to try and dislodge the…

One Lord, Two Thieves, Three Crosses…

The day is over and you are driving home. The radio tells about a far-away village in which three people have died suddenly, strangely, of a flu of unknown kind and origin. It is kind of interesting. On Sunday, coming home from church, you hear another news release. Only now it’s not three villagers in…

10 Ways to Recharge Your Spiritual Battery

I walked down to my basement today to do laundry and the light flickered. It went out and then came back on when I touched it. It reminded me of my Christian walk lately. I have just felt so off and on. But instead of letting my light stay off, I am going to change…

Self-Worth

I created this video a few day’s after Luke had left to go work on projects that will one day help us be self-supported missionaries. I was completely broken when he left, but I did some spiritual digging and I feel stronger than I have ever felt. So I am writing this in hopes to…

Conquering Jealousy, Spiritually

A tranquil heart gives life to the flesh, but envy makes the bones rot (Proverbs 14:30) For love is as strong as death, but jealousy is fierce as the grave (Song of Solomon 8:6) Jealously is one of the hardest emotions to control in our lives. And sometimes it appears out of no where. I…

Get up and get going 💜

Each time I have a day where I have to encourage my patients to not lay in bed and tell them the key to them getting stronger is to get up and walk, I can’t help but wonder if that’s the way God see’s us.  I say to my patient: “I know you can do…

Dear Content Christian

I know you. You’re the one who walks down the hallway at work and see’s a piece of trash laying on the floor but walks past it and thinks “Someone else will do it.” You’re the one who see’s a car accident and thinks to yourself “Someone else will call 911” You’re the one who…

Running God’s Race

I remember sitting in the stands at a high school track meet watching a fellow track mate run her hurdle race. She hit every hurdle and tumbled on the ground, scratching open her knees. But she didn’t not stop. She finished the race, bloody knees and all. Now that I think about it, I think…
