About Me

I'm somewhat introverted, I'm a voracious reader, and I love a good conversation. My interests and activities can be found on the right side of the page. My life goal is to use the gifts and talents God has bestowed on me to glorify Him and benefit others.

Of Armor and Bubblewrap

God gave this to me early on Valentine's Day. I hope it edifies and challenges you.

"We were never told 'Put on the full bubblewrap of God, so that you can sit in a Christian box off to the side and never be jostled or disturbed by anything.' No, instead we are commanded, 'Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the Devil's schemes.' The wearing of armor implies that we are to be in a battle, not against flesh and blood, but against 'the powers of this dark world and the against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms (Ephesians 6:11-12).' So, clothed with divine protection, let us not hesitate to charge into the fight and take what God would have us claim, the territory our enemy has occupied for far too long."
