Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. - Philippians 4:5 (NIV)
I am a driven person. I thrive on achieving new things and checking items off my daily to-do list. I was competitive early in my childhood, even over simple games like musical chairs. As I grew older, I began to believe the message that we must always bring our best...
When I am weighed down by self-criticism, I will remember to be gentle like Jesus.

I join many of those who will pray for you as you seek to discern what you are called to be at this moment. May God grant you the courage to fulfill that calling. May we all open our eyes and see the misery, open our ears and hear the cries of God’s people, and, like God through the Lord Jesus Christ, be incarnate amongst them.”
