Powerful. Good. Here.

I was all set on what to write about today. Was finally going to get to some backed up blog ideas. Then bam. Sermon hits me right in the gut.

And between you and me, I wasn’t expecting myself to care too much about today’s sermon. Well, turned out that I couldn’t put my pen down.

Christian and Feminist?

I’ve been feeling a bit uninspired lately. I’m getting back into devotionals and prayers, but they’ve been difficult (mostly the praying part). I think that I need to start writing them again.

I’m pretty sure it came up, at least somewhat, in regards to my constant use of “struggling” when I write. After that conversation, my perspective started shifting a bit and I’ve been more mindful and intentional of when I use wrestle and when I use struggle (thanks for that).

Very recently, I was reminded of this and I spent some time of intentional re-reflection (thanks for that as well).
