Life In January


Religion suggests we become fascinated with the fruits and benefits of knowing God but not with the reality. It’s a despicable fraud, particularly when we were designed for the incredible reality.


If you’re dissatisfied lately (and I’ve found that common in post-holiday January), go for the simplicity of knowing God—that’s the goal that brings life.

    Yeah, I needed this. Talk about post-holiday blues....whew! Everything hit hard lately. But the beauty is...the simplicity of knowing Jesus.

  4. It's amazing how cluttered-up and confused we can get, and yet press on and flail away at our days thinking we have to get through them. I'm so glad He works to rescue us again, assuming the position of burden bearer and giver of life.
