Above the Waves

Trusting iN Jesus

I want my writing to encourage people to let go of worry, and to trust in God and his amazing grace. 

My goal is to use the medium of story, as much as possible, to illustrate Biblical truths and examples of God’s presence in daily life.

The three primary strands that are woven throughout my writing here are Jesus, trust, and grace because….

-I need Jesus.  I want, more than anything, for Jesus to be glorified through my life and my words.  I tell you about him because I want you to have the same hope and peace that I have found through a personal relationship with him.

-I write about trusting God because I’m still learning myself, how to let go of worry, fear and my desire to control everything around me.  I don’t write from a position of knowing it all.  I write as a fellow student, learning as I go, sharing both my successes and failures.

-I write about grace because I agree with Philip Yancey’s assessment, that it’s “the last best word”.  A theological word, rich in meaning, better conveyed than explained.  Grace, so perfectly conveyed in the message of the Gospel, it's the message I want to keep in front of me, and anyone who reads my words, always.
