Among the Dead

My family, friends, and I went to the Yellow Daisy festival this weekend at Stone Mountain Park, and then did a sunset hike up the mountain afterwords.  Along the way, we found some of the yellow daisies for which the festival was named.

This one in particular captured my attention and I took a picture of it—because there was just one flourishing among the dead. 

It reminded me of the valley of dry bones in Ezekiel 37:

Life Verses: Part Five: Zechariah 4:10

Well, it’s been a while since the last Life Verses post, hasn’t it? I got so caught up in sharing my travel adventures that I just never got back around to telling you about some verses that impacted me for a season of my life.  In case you’re new here and don’t remember the previous Life Verses posts, let me catch you up on what’s going on.  In Christian circles, it’s not uncommon to hear people saying they have a “life verse” or asking other what their “life verse” is.  This would be a verse that has stuck with them throughout their Christian life.  For me, there’s not just one verse that’s a favorite or dear to my heart: there’s several.  Each one made an impact for at least a couple months of my life for the season I was in.  In this series, I’m going back through verses that have been special to me and telling you what they mean to me.

It’s Already Done

For some reason, I never did get around to pre-writing and scheduling posts this month.  Or even this week.  That’s why every single day, I’ve had to sit down and write out that day’s post.  Today is no different in that regard; its only difference lies in the fact that today, I have no idea what to write about.  I’ve prayed before writing this post that only the words that God wants written will be written, so let’s see where this goes!

Another Update/Road Trippin’ Part 5

I normally try to do a devotional post on Mondays, but last week and this week, I’ve been more in the “update” mode.  Perhaps it’s because I haven’t written all these posts out ahead of time like I did previously this summer.  You may notice that this post isn’t coming out in the 9 o’clock hour, as I aim for my posts to normally do.  That’s because this has been a spur-of-the-moment week this week.  Incredibly spontaneous, it’s been a week juxtaposing “Be still” and “Go”.

Road Trippin’ Part 4

I went on a road trip this past weekend towards a destination I had mixed feelings about. I didn’t know what it was going to be like when I got there and I was mostly afraid of the unknown. We were traveling through the countryside and I was praying as we went along. As I looked out the window I saw rows and rows of crops–corn, I believe–growing. From a distance, it all looked to be one big, intimidating mass of growth–no beginning, no ending, just growth and growth and growth and it was easy to get scared at the vastness of it.
