Let Me Walk In It

Author: Melissa Church

I am a very practical person. I do not believe in randomness, or coincidence. I believe that God is sovereignly in control of all things. All things. All the time. And so, I have the habit of looking for the lesson in anything He allows me to experience. This time, I could not find it. Knowing that physical pain is just a consequence of living in a fallen creation makes it hard to redeem it for any spiritual purpose, I thought. Having not been tested in this way before, I could not make sense of it

On Being Martha (It’s a Good Thing)

Author: Melissa Church

About a year ago, a friend asked me if I wanted to take part in a local charitable effort. It was something that I had always been interested in and seemed like a group doing good work, so of course I jumped at the chance. No sooner than the first email exchange concluded, I knew that I had made a terrible mistake.

Emergency Alert

Author: Melissa Church

Creep

Author: Melissa Church

Are you a worrier? Has anyone just told you flat out that worry is a sin? Worry is a great tool for our enemy. He keeps us so wrapped around the axel that we can’t see which way is up for imaging what might happen if we take our eyes off the imaginary balls we’re juggling. Stop for just a second and let your worry creep in… See how easy it is suddenly to lose sight of God?

Big Helper

Author: Melissa Church

In my own kitchen, I have a very particular way about things. I also have a method when I cook or bake that involves making a hot slinging mess across every conceivable surface. Sometimes my husband wants to come in to the middle of the slinging and begin to “help”. Can I just tell you how insane it makes me? Do you need me to explain, ladies? Sometimes it’s hard to know when to help and when to get out of the way, but I find that as in the temporal so in the spiritual.

Words for Thought- Circumlocution

Author: Brady Stephenson

Merriam-Webster’s Word of the Day was circumlocution-the use of an unnecessarily large number of words to express an idea.  There are some situations, however, where using more words is helpful…or even holy.

Dragged

Author: Melissa Church

I’ve been reading a book lately that is way above my pay scale, but I’m plowing through. From the first chapter it has been all up in my business and I’ve had to put it aside several times while I simmer down. It has held a mirror up to a corner of my life that I thought was a non-issue. I am deeply convicted. And deeply conflicted.
