Telling Stories

Lately I have been thinking about the stories we tell ourselves, our family, and the world around us, and not only the stories we tell but also the stories we are told. Stories have power. They can create a reality for us. They can make us believe things about ourselves and the world around us.

Adversity and Grace

It has been an odd couple of weeks. Taryn not being home is hard. Having help in the house, is amazing. I haven't slept the greatest. Part of that may be that Taryn isn't there. Another part of that may be that I have a three year old in the bed who takes up far more bed than seems possible for his size. I find in these moments when there is radical change in my life, I look for moments of reflection and thought. Too often life gets busy and we get caught up in whatever is in front of us, we fail to properly contemplate all that is going on in our lives and around us.

Above All Else, Possess This

Another passage that I love is from Proverbs 4. The author says this: 'The beginning of wisdom is this: Get wisdom, and whatever you get, get insight.' Such simple instruction yet so profound. Thomas Brooks in his opening comments in Precious Remedies is saying something like what we see here in Proverbs 4. Above all else get truth yet this is not a truth in the sense of just going out and reading a lot, this is truth that has feet.
