365 Day 186: September 30, 2020

Commit to the work, the process, of developing your ability to communicate your heart clearly and effectively. It takes work, it’s humbling and sometimes deeply frustrating, but I’m convinced it’s a non-negotiable expression of how much we believe in and value the Lord’s word in us.

365 Day 184: September 28, 2020

Developing our own intimate shorthand with our Father, and why I think it’s so important.

365 Day 183: September 27, 2020

Violent surrender to freedom. And there I sat, with a sweet child’s head on my lap who needed all the healing in the world.

365 Day 180: September 24, 2020

Today was tough. But there are streams of refreshing in the middle of the furnace, if you know where to look for them. Don’t quit. Don’t stop. Keep going.

365 Day 179: September 23, 2020

When you wake up at 4am and cannot sleep, you let your soul and spirit drift into His heart. Then you have things to say, and no one to interrupt you. 🙂

365 Day 178: September 22, 2020

I find myself praying for leaders. To me, “leadership” has taken on an entirely new dimension.

365 Day 172: September 16, 2020

Well this is awkward. Do you send me a pair of gorgeous Raybans? No? Do you know who did? I really need to thank someone! Oh, and some thoughts on sowing Scripture into my kids…

365 Day 171: September 15, 2020

The kind of love and compassionate that I value lacks nuance. It’s pure and transformational, simply because it does not ask for power in exchange. It reminds me so much of Jesus. This kind of love casts out fear by displacing it.

365 Day 170: September 14, 2020

So I’m pretty sure today wasn’t as good as I hoped. But it is what it is. There are more opportunities ahead.

365 Day 169: September 13, 2020

I have a major correction for this video. I say “I’m not a nerd, I swear,” but that’s a straight lie. I don’t know what got into me. I have always been, and will likely always be, nerd-like or at least nerd-adjacent.

365 Day 168: September 12, 2020

One of them was passive-aggressive; the other pretended to laugh it off and I was in the middle, wanting to cry.

365 Day 166: September 10, 2020

I said I love you. Then I panicked. Do I really? What expectations are attached to their definitions of love? Am I willing to rise to the divine definition of what love is? Am I able to stand strong in His love in me for them, while they shed their assumptions of what love is…and […]

365 Day 165: September 9, 2020

I’m deliberately stripping away all pretense or “heaviness” from this project. As viewed from our set here today in the car wash. What—you don’t selfie video in the carwash?…

365 Day 162: September 4, 2020

Vulnerability is tough. But it’s also where every genuine expression of relationship and intimacy are hidden. Turns out, I still have a lot of contempt in my life…

365 Day 161: September 3, 2020

So in the name of being honest, this is the only video I got recorded today. I got interrupted and didn’t really like what I was saying so I just stopped–but never went back to it. So you may just want to skip today. I am posting in name only, both in transparency and genuine […]

365 Day 160: September 2, 2020

I originally recorded this one under an inspiration to post it on Facebook, but then, that impulse soured. Right or wrong, I’m putting it here in the insecure hope I’m not essentially hiding the light in my heart in an obscure place. If it only blesses you, it will be well worth it. All the […]

365 Day 159: September 1, 2020

The standard of excellence seems like a punishing performance or an impossible expectation when we have the mentality that we have been abandoned to perform its requirements. We resent excellent standards under those conditions. But the standard, and the journey towards it, require presence and fellowship. Jesus can call us to perfection–a seemingly impossible standard–because […]
