When Singing “Let It Go” Is Far Easier Than Doing It

Some days I feel like I live Frozen.

Frozen in time.

Frozen in relationships.

Frozen in boiling emotions.

Maybe you know about the winter less-than-wonderland of the soul. Continue Reading...

How to Decode the Parables, Enigmas, and Mysteries of God

I don’t understand.

This doesn’t make sense.

I’m so confused.

What the what?

Life sometimes seems like an enigma wrapped in a riddle, stuffed inside a cryptogram and sealed with another riddle.

Why was that allowed? What are you trying to say? What’s going on here? Why does none of this make sense?

My friend, Christian—a member of Matt’s Bible study group, remembers feeling hesitant at first:

“Here I am with a group of guys who have nicknamed themselves ‘Manbeverages & Bibles’ and now rainbow markers are strewn all over the table where we’re meeting. It’s starting to feel like a Pinterest party.

But 15 minutes into the study, the Bible started coming alive in a whole new way,” Christian says. “Each of us started noticing details, phrases, patterns—God began speaking through the Scripture to each of us in a personal way.”
