My Wrestle

Some things with which I wrestle:

The incompatible longing to make a mark on the world versus my longing to sleep.

The more I learn about the vast size of the universe, and the more I realize how massive and completely other our God is, the more I wrestle with how he can care about this peon named Allison.

When someone throws their ardent political support behind a politician who espouses rhetoric and policy contrary to the Gospel, can that person really understand the Gospel?

Grace.

My desire for perfection but the realization we live in a broken place.

Since there is evidence of death and cell death and carnivorism and dinosaur bones and plant fossils prior to Adam and Eve, how did their sin bring death into the world?

How to love judgmental, self-righteous snobs.

Why God spared my life in 2008 but half a year later allowed a mother of three to die while holding her newborn.

Being a woman in a world that’s not kind to women.

Small talk.

What are you wrestling with today?
