אוֹדְךָ, אֲדֹנָי אֱלֹהַי–בְּכָל-לְבָבִי; וַאֲכַבְּדָה שִׁמְךָ לְעוֹלָם
I give thanks to You, O Lord my God, with my whole heart, and I will glorify Your Name forever.
– Psalm 86:12
As I continue preparing the many projects God has put on my heart, including the upcoming album and book, this blog chronicles my thoughts along the way. I hope you are encouraged by the words you find here and led into a deeper, more meaningful relationship with God. He is the creative, vibrant, sustaining force in everything. Without Him, we are nothing.
Giving Him glory with every word,
The idea of the Coming King embodies all of our hope as believers in the risen Messiah.
Because He has died on the cross for our sins, we are now righteous before God. Because He descended into hell, He now holds the keys of death and the grave. Because He was resurrected by the quickening of the Holy Spirit, He proved Himself the Son of God on the earth. Because He ascended to the right Hand of the Father, we have hope of His return.
Having heard about Messiah’s impending arrival my entire life, I grew up with a longing that I could not describe or understand. When I realized that Yeshua is the Messiah I had been waiting for, it was at once clear that this yearning in my soul was for Him. In the process of preparing this album, I hope to express that desire to the world and to stir in all of us a hunger for His Kingdom.
Let us know, let us press on to know the Lord,– Hosea 6:3 ESV
His going out is sure as the dawn,
He will come to us as the showers, as the spring rains that water the earth.
As believers, we are taught to look forward to new horizons. The new heaven and earth are the undiscovered country we long for, though we’ve never seen them. Yet, the greatest journey we will ever embark on starts with one choice.
To leave the traditions I grew up with and explore the possibility that my Messiah may have already come was a daunting prospect. Just considering it was dangerous. To believe it was blasphemy. In the end, the choice was mine.
God gave us the gift of volition, the ability to exercise our own will. I pray this book helps those with their own doubts and questions. It is no sin to search, but it is a crime to let others make the most important choice for you.
Avinu Malkeinu has always had the ability to move my soul like no other prayer. Our Father, Our King | Be gracious and answer our prayers | For we have little to commend us | Deal kindly and gently with us | And save our people Someday, the great trumpet will blow and Yeshua will…
There I found myself, standing over the counter in the kitchen, doting on my jackfruitlings, resisting the urge to tear off their seed covers. It was a strange feeling. I felt pride that I, who had once killed an aloe vera plant, had been able to coax these two green seeds into sprouts. It had…
I’ve been exhausted by the current atmosphere of this country. For the first time in my 14 years of marriage, I’m talking about current events more than my husband (it’s quite a feat, I assure you). I reached out to the show for comfort, but I seem to have found a safe space to process…
In the past 2 years I’ve found myself in the interesting position of visionary’s assistant. In the midst of COVID-19, I’m beginning to work for my 4th client in 2 years whose dreams have become my own. I hope with them. I celebrate with them. I strive with them. Maybe it doesn’t sound very fun…
Happy new year, everyone! I don’t know about you, but I enjoy numbers. Sitting here relaxing on New Year’s Day (an activity as rare as my grandfather’s favorite steak), I wondered what 20:20 verses were rattling around my ESV. In case you were also curious, I thought I’d share. To put it mildly, I have…
The songs of the Passover seder are near and dear to my heart. They remind me of lighter times. Our Passover seders typified everything I loved best about my family, before everyone and everything became complicated. No matter what happened around them (and I could tell you ten thousand stories involving everything from jello to…
