Christmas Day is when Jesus was Born

 

Written by Dinah Maria Mulock

ChristmasGod rest ye, merry gentlemen; let nothing you dismay,
For Jesus Christ, our Saviour, was born on Christmas-day.

The dawn rose red o’er Bethlehem, the stars shone through the gray,
When Jesus Christ, our Saviour, was born on Christmas-day.

Whitney Johns: The Sweetest Relief

 

SpiritualitySan Diego, CAWhen I fear my faith will fail, Christ will hold me fast;

When the tempter would prevail, He will hold me fast.

I could never keep my hold through life’s fearful path;

For my love is often cold; He must hold me fast.

He will hold me fast, He will hold me fast;

For my Savior loves me so, He will hold me fast.

Oh how I must let God down. But no! His love for me is great! His love for me is patient!

Oh how I must let God down. But no! His love for me is great! His love for me is patient!

Whitney Johns: Illusion of Control

 

SpiritualitySan Diego, CA – I recently read a CNN article titled: Illusion of Control: Why the world is full of elevator buttons that don’t work. Go ahead and read it if you want; it’s pretty interesting. If you’re lazy like me and want to skip the reading, just read that title one more time…

This article was not published on DesiringGod.com or TheGospelCoalition.com This article was published on a mainstream secular website, yet it’s themes ring true to those of the bible. Proof that all of our problems on this earth and in our own hearts can be traced back to one thing – sin & brokenness.

Whitney Johns: The Man in the Jacket & Jesus, Our Advocate

 

SpiritualitySan Diego, CA – Yesterday, I was off from work, so my husband and I took the trolley to downtown San Diego. We both own a car, and from where we live, it takes about fifteen minutes to get downtown by car. San Diego also has a pretty great public transit system, and you can take buses or trolleys to get just about anywhere. From where we live, it takes about forty-five minutes to get downtown by trolley.

Fifteen minutes by car. Forty-five minutes by trolley. We made the obvious decision and took the trolley.

Whitney Johns: How One Bold Question Changed My Life

 

And no, its not when my Husband Proposed

SpiritualityMurfreesboro, TN – Do you know someone who is extremely bold? I don’t mean someone who will go skydiving or ride a bull; I mean someone who is bold in their speech – the kind of boldness that catches you off-guard, the kind of boldness that causes you to pause, the kind of boldness that almost feels offensive or uncomfortable.

I had a friend who was bold in her speech the very first time I met her, and I am eternally thankful for her boldness.

My freshman year of college, I heard about an athlete bible study that was happening in my dorm. I thought to myself, “I’m an athlete. I own a bible. I’ll go to this athlete bible study.”

SpiritualityMurfreesboro, TN – It’s happening.

If you have been following my blogs (read this one to catch up) or my life in general, you know that my husband and I have been prayerfully considering moving to San Diego, California to join a church plant in the city.

In fact, before we began our dating relationship, I knew that marrying J.J. meant following him wherever the Lord might lead. And it was clear that San Diego was the direction. We have both participated in internships with the North American Mission Board in San Diego, CA.

Whitney Johns: Unmet Expectations, Unfulfilled Desires

 

SpiritualityMurfreesboro, TN – In the past year, I graduated from college with a four-year bachelor’s degree, moved to a new city, and began applying for jobs. I quickly realized that four years of college means nothing in most cases, seventeen is the preferred number of years of experience most employers want, and the only jobs I was qualified for were Lyft driving and folding clothes at Old Navy.

Yes, this sounds incredibly pessimistic. But let’s be honest here – anyone over the age of 22 has experienced this in some way. And if you haven’t experienced this in the business world, you still know the feeling. It is the heartache of unmet expectations, the sorrow of unfulfilled desires.
