There’s a place in Scripture that’s been haunting me lately.
Do I love God, or my own theological version of God?
The older I get, the more I realize that this struggle will never go away, but it will be a continual battle of seeing myself as good enough, not succumbing to fear that I am is a failure, and doing things that give me life.
During this season of silence, discomfort, and seasonal depression, Advent could not come at a better time for me.
My entire life I’ve been fighting this battle of “Do It Self”.
Six years ago, I said to myself, "man. I hope I never get old and boring, and want to spend a night in reading a book on a weekend."
Pastor Grant and Pastor Rob quoting Anchorman changed my life, and for that I’m thankful (so if you’re somehow reading this, thanks fellas).
Right now I work at a high school cleaning poopy toilets (or being in “maintenance” if you want to make it sound fancy), being in classes, and am wrestling with finishing well with my classes.

Today, I don't have anything to write. Instead, I'd like for us all to stop, and read Scripture. With that said, here is Luke 23.

If anyone makes a slip-and-slide-type game with the name “Back-Sliding” now, I fully expect a cut of the profits.
I found a CD labeled, “I’M DONE”, which made me laugh, and put it on for a good laugh with some friends.
I love the show Seinfeld.
Noise. It seems like I can’t escape it. Even when I take my headphones out, I hear people laughing, people talking, people yelling, cars going by, construction happening, trains chiming, whistles blowing…noise.
We all have a story to tell. This is mine.
If you're reading this, remember to have a sense of humor about how ridiculous we can be as Christians at times.
If you see me being prideful, punch me in the face (not literally, of course), in love.
