  • [Devo.] Am I OK With It?

    It was a question that was asked to me that made me think….hmm…am I truly OK with God’s will for my life if I never got what I desired? Have I resolved the true statement of a surrendered life, “Not my will but yours be done God?” More

  • [devo.] The Hurricane Is Coming (Sandy Relief Project)

    When I lived in Brooklyn, NY, the term “grocery store” was always confusing for me. I am originally from the south and after moving to NY, I immediately noticed that grocery stores are more like tiny convenient stores that are extremely under-stocked. Every time I would go to Target the shelves would be empty like there was a zombie apocalypse coming. Only in Brooklyn would it be incredibly uncommon to go to the same store and find the same kind of cinnamon rolls that you bought the week before. Now try to imagine the desolate aisles of these grocery stores in the days leading up to hurricane Sandy! My wife and I were lucky enough grab some canned goods and several bottles of water before the grocery stores were completely sold out. More

  • [devo.] Gobble…gobble…

    It’s that season again, the one that turkeys dread most. This season is traditionally a time of reflection and of thanksgiving. Since we’re suppose to be reflecting, think about this: Are we thankful because of what God blessed us with or because of who God is? Go on, read the rest of the blog. I would love to hear your thoughts! More

  • Artist Devo: Betrayed (Bobby Bishop)

    Betrayal might be the worst human feeling. You put your best foot forward, trust your convictions, and strive for excellence. Despite your efforts, you end up with a knife in your back because personal gain trumped goodness. My most recent betrayal was gradual, but it stung nonetheless. We’ve been in our neighborhood for seven years. […] More

  • Devotional: Gospel Motivation

    Growing up in the church, I heard what I was supposed to be doing all the time. “Read your Bible more; stop lusting; pray more; you should want to go to church; don’t take communion in an unworthy manner; you should want to tell people about Jesus; make sure you find a good Christian girl.” […] More

  • Artist Devo: Give Thanks (2Edge)

    Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery.  Instead, be filled with the Spirit.  Speak to one another with psalms, hymns and spiritual songs.  Sing and make music in your heart to the Lord, always giving thanks to God the Father for everything in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.  Submit to […] More

  • Artist Devo: Confidence In Knowing (2Edge)

    Elijah went before the people and said, “How long will you waver between two opinion?  If the Lord is God, follow Him, but if Baal is God, follow him.  Then you call on the name of your god, and I will call on the name of the Lord.  The god who answers by fire, He […] More

  • Artist Devo: True Fellowship (2Edge)

    Do not be yoked together with unbelievers.  For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common?  Or what fellowship can light have with darkness?  What harmony is there between Christ and Belial?  What does a believer have in common with an unbeliever?  What agreement is there between the temple of the living God?  As God […] More

  • Artist Devo: Servin’ With No Fear (2Edge)

    Now the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.  But we all , with unveiled face, beholding as I a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Sprit of the Lord.  (2 Corinthians […] More

  • Devo: Criminal Minded (Edward Welch)

    What’s a criminal?  A criminal is someone who breaks the law of the land.  I can’t help but be slightly intrigued about the mind of a criminal.  A criminal sees the world differently than the rest of us.  How?  Well, we all know that stealing is against the law.  The normal person would say I […] More
