‘Is God For Me?’ Interview

The realest. Brilliance. I never tire of listening to both of these men separately. So cool to hear them together. “I’ve never been afraid to die. I’ve been afraid to not live each day fully.” Erwin McManus

For Present Thought

Lead me in Thy truth, and teach me: for Thou art the God of my salvation; on Thee do I wait all the day. Psalm 25:5 For with Thee is the fountain of life; in Thy light shall we see light. Psalm 36:9 Commit thy way unto The Lord, trust also in Him; and HeContinue reading “For Present Thought”

It came upon the midnight clear

By: Gabriela Yareliz This may be a bit cryptic and philosophical, but I will share anyway. (And now worries, it has nothing to do with my fabulous law school.) I think everyone has something that tries to trap them. Something that has been a part of one’s plan or hope maybe one’s entire life; whetherContinue reading “It came upon the midnight clear”

Sparkles

By: Gabriela Yareliz 1] A moment in a memory I still feel sparkles of it in my heart; like glitter left falling in the air. 2] Desire “Thou hast given him his heart’s desire, and hast not withheld the request of his lips.

I was impressed by the verse where God asks Solomon what he desires. In verse 5, God says: At Gibeon the LordContinue reading “That which you have not asked for”

When you really want something

By: Gabriela Yareliz I began reading the book of 1 Samuel. It begins with the story of Hannah, the childless woman who wanted a child more than anything. It is a story I have referred to before, because it is one that I really love. During the festivities in Shiloh, she is upset. She won’tContinue reading “When you really want something”

The Picture of Dorian Gray & Sensuality

By: Gabriela Gonzalez Why is it that things like pleasure, beauty and art end up leaving us empty and guilty? I found a fascinating book/play on the topic. It is a short play, a fictional conversation between Oscar Wilde, known for his if it feels good, do it philosophy; Blaise Pascal, the brilliant mathematician, andContinue reading “The Picture of Dorian Gray & Sensuality”
