Thoughts from Church

Here’s some of my thoughts from listening to the sermon this morning.




Bible reading

I believe I have found the most effective way for me to read the Bible right now. It is to utilize my commute time by listening to it being read aloud. Today’s reading was Mark 10-Luke 1. I’ll start with Luke 2 tomorrow.

How do you read the Bible?

Happy New Year

2019 is already starting out as a roller coaster of emotions. One of my girls from camp was missing but is now home, one of my friends got engaged, and another friend lost her battle with cancer.

My word of the year is going to have to be faith. But I’m continuing last year’s word of prayer. That one hasn’t let go yet.

One thing I learned today: I can listen to about 7 chapters of the Bible on the way to work. I listened to Mark 1-7 today, which means 8-14 tomorrow. Listening to the Bible counts as reading it, doesn’t it?

Alright, I’m exhausted. Have a good night and a great new year.




Maybe I’m weird, but today, I’m actually grateful for my cubicle. I’m grateful that I can decorate it and make it my own little space. And I’m grateful for my job and my manager. This is a good place for an entry level position, and I’ve learned more in the past six months than I thought possible. You really can teach an old dog new tricks.




Today, I am grateful for church. I live in a country where I can worship freely and without fear. Today, I am thankful for the family that I have at church. For friends to pray with, to help carry burdens.



“Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor: If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up. Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm. But how can one keep warm alone? Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.”

‭‭Ecclesiastes‬ ‭4:9-12‬ ‭NIV‬‬
