  1. Dear church, I'm single and lonely

    by , 2 Weeks Ago at 02:11 AM
    I have friends. I have a job. I go to church.
    I'm also super lonely at times.
    I sometimes feel like an outsider at churches because I'm not married and have no children.
    It seems to me that if you hang around churches enough, you'll get the idea that life only really begins when you get married and have kids.
    The Christian ideal is out there, communicated in subtle ways: the pretty little wife, the handsome husband in khaki pants, and two adorable kids. That is a world ...

  2. The ones He cherishes

    by , August 7th, 2017 at 12:22 AM
    Hi everyone,

    It's been a long time since I've posted on here. I hope y'all are doing well.

    Tonight I'm thinking about Jesus and His love and care for His church. It's a topic I'd like to explore because it makes me feel so special when I read about His love for the church, how He cherishes us like a bride.

    I've been thinking a lot about marriage lately. I've been searching for husband candidates, which has been interesting/fun and painful at times.

  3. The Comforter (essay)

    by , May 27th, 2017 at 11:05 PM
    “He shall cover you with His feathers, And under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler.”
    Psalms‬ 91:4‬ NKJV‬‬
    Is there anything more comforting than resting in God's presence? I can't think of anything.
    That's what it means to me when I read, "under His wings you shall take refuge."
    His precious, comforting Holy Spirit ...
    I just love to be wrapped up in His love like a lamb in His arms.
    When I feel ...

  4. Short ones for fun (poetry)

    I'm playing around with haikus. I'll probably add more to this file as the mood strikes. Feel free to add your own in comments!

    1.

    A dove sat and watched
    As I walked to church today.
    I thought of His peace.


    2.

    My church with no bells
    Doesn't sound like the others.
    Love whispers inside

    Makes a flower touch the ground.
    God's nature brings ...

  5. Masks and light (poetry)

    by , May 23rd, 2017 at 10:27 PM
    Keep the lights dim.
    Let's stand here with our masks on.
    That way we don't see
    What's cracked and bleeding.
    I want to feel you close,
    Skin wrapped around skin,
    Indulging in exteriors,
    Comforting the cuts inside.
    Let's sway a little.
    Tip me back and kiss my neck.
    I wonder who you see when you kiss me.
    Where is redemption without the truth?
    I think lofty thoughts
    While I shrink from the light.
    I wonder why we ...
