Psalm 16

King David had a beautifully raw perspective on life. If anyone understands what ultimate satisfaction looks like, I think David had a pretty good grasp. In Psalm 16, he speaks about his reliance on the Creator. You are my Lord; I have no good apart from you. [Psalm 16:2]  He is hyper-aware of God’s goodness.

let’s talk about sex, baby.

I usually wake up late in the mornings. When I say late, I mean I have to leave for work at 7:45 and I wake up around 7:15 on a good day. Somehow, I manage to take a shower, brush my teeth, and put on some semi-decent “business casual” clothes and stumble out the door.… Continue reading let’s talk about sex, baby.

forgiveness

“We forgive, because He forgave us.” What a load of crap. Literally nothing in me wants to forgive someone when they cross me. Who do you think you are, going behind my back? Who do you think you are, eating the last krispy kreme donut in the break room? Frickin’ jerks.As much as I like to… Continue reading forgiveness
