I’m in the middle of writing an article on loneliness as a means to drive us deeper into God’s heart and was just struck by the passage this nugget came from. The context is distress and anguish, feeling the grip of death’s crushing pull. Maybe you can relate. But the author of this psalm lifts his eyes above his circumstances and prays for deliverance. He meditates on the character of God; how He is gracious, righteous, and merciful. He remembers what God has done; how He preserves the simple and rescued him when he was flat on his back, hopeless and alone. Then comes verse seven. Circumstances haven’t changed for the author but, then again, God’s worthiness to be worshipped has never been contingent on ideal circumstances. No matter what our lives might look like right now, no matter how uncomfortable or excruciating our circumstances might be, if we have been redeemed by Jesus, we have every reason to “return to our rest;” for the the Lord INDEED has dealt bountifully with us. And He is worthy of our praise and confidence right here. •••• [Also, 1) this is not a staged photo and 2) you should go read all of Psalm 116 for yourself.]
Happy birthday to the best big sister! 🥳 You are as genuine and intentional as they get; you love deep and feel big, and I’m so thankful for your heart and life. 💜 Additionally, I’d like to know how much you were paid to hug me in this photo.
“Do not despair, dear heart, but come to the Lord with all your jagged wounds, black bruises, and running sores. He alone can heal, and He delights to do it. It is our Lord’s office to bind up the brokenhearted, and He is gloriously at home at it.” -Charles Spurgeon
“Theologians who limit the means of grace to overtly redemptive religious practices miss something about the God who speaks without words in the theater of His creation.” -David Powlison

Lettering for the World


Theodore Roosevelt once said, “Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.” 

There is a great big world out there filled with people who need to know the Gospel, the only letters that truly matter, and I want to do what I can, with what I have, where I am to help spread the Gospel and advance God’s kingdom on this earth.

For me, doing what I can with what I have looks like going to the nations as God sends but also using what talents He has given me to promote Jesus Christ and His grand plan of redemption. Therefore, after much prayer and with some encouragement from others, I opened an Etsy shop to sell canvases and prints to raise support for the Romania Missionary Fellowship, a nonprofit organization that trains and equips pastors and church leaders in Eastern Europe to make disciples as Jesus commanded.

Mosey on over to the shop and see if something strikes your fancy. And let me know if you have a custom order, I’ll try my best to make it to your specifications. When you purchase a canvas/print, you’ll be supporting missions and helping to advance the glory and exultation of Christ on this earth.

Together we can join God in wrapping His arms around the nations.

“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” -Jesus, Matthew 28:19-20
