I spend years alone on Valentine’s Day wondering “who could love someone like me?”, while looking at how decades of an autoimmune disease ravaged my body, my career, relationships and mind. Doctors, charismatic prayer meetings, yoga and supplements were hardly enough to stop the decline. This post is to testify how God’s love changed everything and … More From Curses to Cupcakes – A Valentine’s Day story.

Why are these Orchids pretty? They were a little intrusive. Isn’t great beauty like this? It’s made out of complementing AND competing colors. God makes the good and bad and makes a masterpiece. … More Dissonant beauty in Orchids (Vlog)
Pilate and Jesus. One is on the side of power and accusation, the other like a lamb to be slaughtered. Pilate had already seen it all. He was the original Millennial of 0 A.D, before the Millennials of 2000 A.D. Even more so, this guy actually had great achievements. He was revered and envied. If he had Facebook, every small thought he posts would have thousands of likes by sycophants. Take a page from Pilate. Achievements on desperate display cannot fill up the God-shaped hope in your heart. … More Millennials and the Elephant in the Room – Pilate and Jesus (Part 2 of 5)
This is the heart of post-modernism, that there is no truth beyond the truth that we I make. In today’s climate, we live in sad contradiction. We are supposed to make our own goal posts, yet we feel pressured when others excel more than us. We are supposed to celebrate “doing things our own way” and “being ourselves”, until you step on some others who are also “being themselves”. As they say, today’s diplomacy is giving you permission to do things my way. But making men, including one’s self, the ultimate authority for truth and reality has always been a bad idea. Which dictator do you know who was not subject to a better higher power actually turned out well? Being forced to contend with the full force of relativism was a war on my mind. … More Millennials and The Elephant in the Room. (Part 1 of 5)

Song Share: Take Me With You – Samuel Lane. Running notes on consistent chords remind me of how we may feel stuck, yet something deep is changing for the better. The eye cannot see it. Doctors cannot see it. Parents cannot see it. Friends cannot see it. But you know that deep in your heart, your soul has seen it, that’s why it moves you. Your soul has seen it because God has already done it and has allowed you to have a glimpse of it. … More Song Share: Take Me With You – Samuel Lane
Doubt must be accompanied by darkness. But God doesn’t remove doubt. Instead, He re-routes it so that doubt can have it’s final purpose in making you the spiritual king and son that He wants you to be. And when God peels away the noise… the noise of our own flawed intuition… the noise of conventional wisdom… callous voices from naysayers… he can see out. And we will see greatness. A greatness in God, his Grace, and how this will forge greatness in you. It will be “so much more ” (Luke 12:28) than what we “think or imagine” (Eph 2:20) that the “things of this world will become strangely dim, in the light of His glory and grace.” The lion isn’t as loud anymore, the sun isn’t the brightest thing anymore, the ocean is small by comparison; we even start to measure time by a different dimension. … More Doubt. Doubt. Let it all out. These are things I can do without. Part 2.

“This is going back to hate and love. This is how the human language cannot convey such a truth. If you don’t see what between the lines, the meaning of the words… I hate my father as an ego, spiritual ego, ego mind, falsehood; but I love him as an individual, a human being struggling in darkness and in delusion… if we need to experience freedom, we have to drop our attachments… trying to please everybody. This is how we get lost as individuals, by trying to impress and trying to convince others of a false identity that is not who we are. We need to be truthful to who we are, to see the divine from within, to see Christ within. And family, society, security … all these things secondary. What’s the point of winning the society and losing ourselves? ” … More Interview with Son of Hamas – Mosab Hassan Yousef
