My soul will rest in your embrace.  What does that even mean?  That phrase comes, once again, from Oceans (where feet may fail) by Hillsong.  The soul, according to Merriam Webster, “is the immaterial essence, animating principle, or actuating cause of an individual life”.  It’s the spiritual part of us. It’s the part of us that trusts God- or doesn’t.  How does our soul rest in His (God’s) embrace?  I think it means that we need to tru...

The plan for the initial content of this blog, God willing, is for me to eventually put it into a book about trusting God.  I have eight chapters outlined.  So far I have written an introduction with some basic Christian doctrine.  I’ve given some examples of what trusting God looks like and explained why we can’t trust God on our own power (we need the Holy Spirit to help us).  That brings me to chapter three, where I want to spend a ...

Here’s where you’re going to find out what a strange child I was.  Keep in mind, I was a church kid- and if you were a church kid too, don’t even try and tell me you never did this.  I won’t believe you.  I tried to walk on water.  It was summertime and I was five or six.   I was visiting my grandma in Grand Coulee, and I was at the city pool every minute that it was open.  I played mermaid, I pretended I was a synchronized swimmer (...

In chapter one, I wrote about what trusting God looks like, and about the foundation of that trust is, which is a faith in the gospel of what Jesus has done for us.  I talked about why even the ability and the desire to believe in the gospel is gift from the Holy Spirit.  We can’t muster that up on our own.  Once we accept those gifts and decide to live in relationship with God, trusting and loving him, he sees us as holy, as part of ...

I want to tell you this story, because I think it illustrates God’s sovereignty, wisdom, and love. It was a time where he showed me that he is with me, that I am never alone.  This is one of my more dramatic stories.  Most of what I experience in my daily life with God more subtle. Most of His work in my life is behind the scenes, and sadly, I’m sure I miss noticing the majority of it.  But this time, he chose to show his love in a wa...

As I said earlier, I don't have a hard time believing in the sovereignty of God, or in his wisdom, but in his love?  That one has been a little harder.  I know what I'm like.  I know my weaknesses.  I know I'm not deserving.  That's probably why trust is a big thing for me and why I'm writing a book about it.  Because like I've said, if God was only sovereign and wise, but not loving, I would still be full of fear, not trusting.  The ...

“Wisdom is the power to see, and the inclination to choose, the best and highest goal, together with the surest means of attaining it. Wisdom is, in fact, the practical side of moral goodness. As such, it is found in its fullness only in God. He alone is naturally and entirely and invariable wise.” J.I. Packer, Knowing God I live in the Pacific Northwest, where the beauty of God’s creation is hard to miss.  Today I looked out onto La...

"The more we let go of our concepts and images which always limit God, the bigger God grows and the more we approach the mystery of his indefinability.  When we overlook the dissimilarity, we begin to speak with obnoxious familiarity about the Holy, make ludicrous comments such as “I could never imagine God doing such a thing,” calmly predict Armageddon, glibly proclaim infallible discernment of the will of God, trimming the claws of ...

  When I refer to the names Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, I’m talking about a God, who eternally exists in three distinct persons.  They are each fully and equally God, in eternal community with each other.  I say they are persons, but I’m not saying they are human beings.  I only mean that they are not impersonal forces.  Each member of the Trinity thinks, acts, feels, speaks, and relates.  They all share the attributes of being ete...

  The beginning is actually much earlier than where I’m going to start, but if you were to ask me where this journey of trusting God in my life started, I would begin with a story about a move my new husband and I made, when we decided to go to school in Moscow Idaho.  I’ll begin here, because it was when I started to wake up and become more aware how completely dependent on God I really am.  I was desperate at times, which I can ...
