It is hard to fully capture the beauty and adventure of life in Christ with ink on a page … but here is a snippet of the things I see.
He loves us with AGAPE (Greek: ἀγάπη) – an unconditional, faithful, immersive and overwhelming love – so much so, that He sent His Son to die for us – the God who is love, loved us with ἀγάπη.

Song of Songs 2:16
Whenever I walk out from work, I look at the sky and find myself in awe at the artistry of God in the clouds. Sometimes pink baubles are symmetrically positioned across the mellowed orange of dusk. Sometimes a touch of blue sky lets a fan of sun rays through to highlight a taller building. Sometimes, the wispy grey strands remind me of my God, the Ancient of Days.
I couldn’t capture the clouds with my pen, but as I drew, I remembered the words God speaks over us in Songs of Songs. There is a garden in our hearts where God abides, where He asks us to come away with Him.
[Songs of Songs 2:16]
“My beloved is mine and I am his; he browses among the lilies.”
דֹּודִ֥י לִי֙ וַאֲנִ֣י לֹ֔ו הָרֹעֶ֖ה בַּשֹּׁושַׁנִּֽים׃

Battle for the Earth
Walking down the street one day, I found myself thinking about the spiritual battle that rages on behind the daily routine of everyday life. Satan, the deceiver, always drawing people towards the false hopes and pleasures that lead to death; Jesus, the Risen King, who holds the world in His hands and from whom all life has its being and its purpose. I already know who wins, and I want to be fighting on His side.

What does the blessing of God look like? It is rich with love, rich with mercy, rich with joy, and hope, and all things wonderful, because it come from a wonderful God. Sorrow is not an ingredient in God’s recipe for blessing.
