Why I Wear a Headband Every Day: The Effects of Postmodernism on Christianity

Why I Wear a Headband Every Day: The Effects of Postmodernism on Christianity

Who I am is a woman who desires God’s will above my own, and I’m committed to obeying the Holy Spirit’s leading in my life.

My goal here is simply to encourage you to do the same: to lay down your preferences and be bold for truth. My desire is for you to draw a line in the sand, to know where you stand when it comes to these difficult passages in Scripture.

Should you choose to cover your head when you pray, I hope you only do it from a place of obedience to the Lord out of love for him, and to stand tall against the negative effects of postmodernism in Christianity.

Staying Hopeful When Your Loved Ones Don’t Know Jesus

Staying Hopeful When Your Loved Ones Don’t Know Jesus

When I became a Christian not quite three years ago, I had a deep sense of urgency for the dying world around me.

It was as if I was awoken from a dream with a vision of coming destruction, and I had the whole world to warn. There were so many people who didn’t know the truth I now understood.

On a mission to share the gospel, my greatest fault was perhaps my unchecked zeal for sharing the good news with everyone I could. It was like I had escaped a fish tank, but my friends thought the new ocean I found was more restricting than their glass rectangle.

However, frantic preaching didn’t get me anywhere but in heated debates with hurt feelings and distrust. I’ve since come to realize I have an urgent message, but it is one that needs to be brought wrapped in love and patience.

Are My Struggles Hurting My Testimony?

Are My Struggles Hurting My Testimony?

Sometimes I feel like a hot-mess Christian.

I beat myself up because there seems to always be at least one thing wrong or challenging in my life. Why can’t I meet with a friend for once and not have any kind of struggle to confess?

But the Lord is so kind to those like me who feel stressed out and anxious about our situations. When I’m feeling defeated he so gently reminds me it’s not my situation that determines my faith – it’s how I react to those situations that will inspire or encourage others in the Lord.

The Secret to Overcoming Shame

The Secret to Overcoming Shame

Does your heart ever flutter and sink at the same moment?

When I receive a genuine compliment, all too often that’s the response I have. My soul leaps for joy from their love, but a small voice tries to suppress it and tell me I’m not worthy of such high remarks.

“You are a good and faithful servant!” one of my dearest friends, a godly woman I look up to, told me as I shared my mission trip photos.

If she only knew of all the struggles I’ve gone through before and after that picture was taken.

There seemed to be more days than not that I would beat myself up for not putting Christ first and others above me.

Surely she would take back that compliment if she knew how little I was getting into the word that week.

Why Are All Christians Hypocrites?

Why Are All Christians Hypocrites?

Let me guess . . . you know a Christian who cusses, or drinks too much, or didn’t save sex for marriage. Maybe they go to church on Sundays (or skip more than they attend) but are the first to lose patience in line at the grocery store.

Plus, why are Christians all so incredibly judgemental?! Didn’t Jesus say “judge not lest you be judged?” Aren’t Christians supposed to be tolerant and loving?

Why are all Christians such hypocrites!
