I write these posts because I love God and want my readers to see Him in fresh ways. I’m constantly surprised by how God continues to defy my expectations and breaks out of any box I might put Him in.
If it were up to me, I would give myself a discount on concert tickets. I am so short and always find myself standing behind someone tall. I don’t get the same experience at concerts that others do.

You don’t have to go far on the internet, to find plentiful examples of posts in which Christians are accused of being idiots.
