Tried a new fad: a meat and cheese charcuterie board from a local Augusta restaurant, and I’m munching seriously on Oh She Glows chickpea salad.
Recently acquired these shoes and I’ve wanted to wear them everyday. (Long comfy shirt, American Eagle jeggings, and these shoes = my favorite, most worn outfit.)
Tony Reinke’s Newton on the Christian Life: To Live Is Christ.
The ascended Christ in heaven is the foundation of our hopes, the source of our sublimest joys, and the sufficient, the only sufficient, answer to all the suggestions by which guilt, fear, unbelief, and Satan, fight against our peace. Surrounded as we are with enemies and difficulties, we plead, against every accusation and threatening, that our Head is in heaven; we have an Advocate with the Father, a High Priest upon the throne, who, because he ever liveth to make intercession, is able to save to the uttermost [Heb. 7:25].
A new practice of making our bed in the morning and sitting in the center for a full 5 minutes. No reading, no music, simply quiet. Praying, not praying. A moment of stillness.
A.W. Tozer says it this way. I love this quote. He says, “Why do I insist that all Christians should search the Scriptures and learn as much as they can about this God who is dealing with them? It is because their faith will only spring up naturally and joyfully as they find that our God is trustworthy and fully able to perform every promise he has made.” Look at that! Their faith will grow when they begin to realize the God who has revealed himself in Scriptures is fully able to perform every promise he made because he is the holy, trustworthy one.

This post is where it all started. 2017, the year of no internet posting.
Then I added blogging back.
Why am I cutting the year a month short?
I confess it isn’t because I’m dying without Instagram. It’s not even that I miss knowing things about people or when something big happens.
The real truth is that I am a communicator bursting with desire and passion and love for Jesus, and I want to declare Him everywhere.
Cultural has deemed social media a place to be evaluated, affirmed, critiqued. Sin makes it a battlefield of comparison, pride, and me-centered opinions against freedom, humility, and wisdom.
