  • A part of my morning routine is picking up my iPhone and, after silencing the alarm, opening Facebook and Twitter, checking for any news updates that may have been released overnight. The dim light pierces the darkness as I scroll the newsfeeds, reading the headlines from the various sources I follow. It can often lend itself to prayer for these people, places and circumstances.

  • We live in an age of discontent. If you don’t like your hair color, dye it. If you don’t like your car, trade it. If you don’t like living in town, move to the country. If you don’t like your job, get a new one.

    Now don’t misunderstand me; I am not confusing changes made out of necessity with changes made out of restlessness. Not every change we make is born out of a lack of satisfaction with our situation in life, but in far too many cases discontentment drives our decision-making.
