The "Write" button at the top right freaks me out every time. I don't know how it's different than picking up a pen and writing on paper. But let's be honest: that freaks me out too. For years and years before the advent of blogging (people know that this word originally came from web + … Continue reading Not this time
Every day on the Alive Now site, there's a prompt. Usually I just write what comes to mind, but today I'll answer the prompt in light of the word for today: "What is the prayer of your heart today?" God, I'm sorry for wrestling, for undermining your sovereignty in my life. Each day I see … Continue reading February 24 | Wrestle
Preliminary Thoughts It's been a very long time since I really recognized Ash Wednesday by giving something up or taking on a new habit. Growing up, this was an integral part of the church calendar as I grew up in a United Methodist church. Now, I find myself in a new season of my own spirituality. … Continue reading Lent 2016
With winter break behind us, I've had some time, weeks even, to ponder things... events, ideas, prayers. So far my year of no resolutions is going great thankyouforasking... and I have to tell you that my one resolution was to make the bed every day. And as of Day 22 of 2014, I've succeeded. 😉 … Continue reading Hello, my name is Elizabeth and I’m a control freak.
I'm not sure when it started, but I haven't been writing with any regularity. That's not to say that there aren't exciting things happening in life, or that I'm not still as introspective as usual.

We have a Bible study here on campus and we were going around asking people to see what they know about the Bible. Do you believe the Bible is true?" "Yes, … Continue reading Defending our faith
For the past week and a half, I haven't been able to get this little bit of biblical wisdom out of my head. I didn't even know what book it was in, but I knew it'd been planted in my heart for a reason. (Now I know it's James 4:2.) It's simple. We're too afraid … Continue reading You have not because you ask not
--------------------------- "I believe in God, the Almighty, Jesus his son, born of the Virgin Mary. Jesus was born in human form and lived and died as a human. Jesus was crucified and gave his life for us. He was sinnless and God raise him from death to be the only Judge of us. Jesus preached … Continue reading Legacy of faith
Our theme for 2012 at Harvest is "Get it done", based on Ephesians 2:10, which says, "For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do." Works do not earn us salvation, rather they should be a product of salvation. In the shuffle … Continue reading A work in progress
Have you ever looked back in life to realize how much your past has led you to where you are now? It's pretty cool, how things work out. When I look back, I think of God as Jehovah Jireh. Don't worry; it's not a creepy name for God used by cultists, I promise. It's the … Continue reading Work with what ya got.
