Greater Than Safety

Posted by Crystal Brashear on

Recently, I have run across quite a few Christians who are obsessed with discerning God’s will for their lives in specific areas. Some worry that the person they are engaged to may not be the one God has chosen for them. Others feel absolutely stuck, baffled as to which career path God...

Filling the Hole

Posted by Crystal Brashear on

There is a room in my house covered in mosaic tile, floor to ceiling. Six years ago, when we moved into our historic home, I spent several weeks planning, tiling, and grouting. Every day when my kids went off to school, I worked on that room. At first, it was really fun. I laid out patterns...

Blessed by the Word

Posted by Crystal Brashear on

So then, there remains a Sabbath rest for the people of God, for whoever has entered God’s rest has also rested from his works as God did from his. Let us therefore strive to enter that rest, so that no one may fall by the same sort of disobedience. For the word of God is living and...

Home

Posted by Crystal Brashear on

Home. If it’s what it’s supposed to be, home is a safe place. It’s the place where we can be fully accepted as ourselves. Where we don’t have to pretend or fake a smile if we don’t feel like smiling. A place of peace. Of course, home doesn’t always fit this...

Born Looking

Posted by Crystal Brashear on

They came asking. They came by day, bustling in crowds of hundreds. They came by night, skulking through the shadowy darkness, alone. They all came  asking. They came hungry, their mouths open like baby birds. And he fed them. They came thirsty, and he gave them living water. They came...

Steadfast Love

Posted by Crystal Brashear on

“They refused to obey and were not mindful of the wonders that you performed among them, but they stiffened their neck…But you are a God ready to forgive, gracious and merciful, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love, and did not forsake them.” — Nehemiah...

Model and Promise

Posted by Crystal Brashear on

One of my favorite professors in seminary repeatedly said, “What God has done in the past is a model and a promise of what he will do in the future, although he’s far too creative to do it the same way twice.” I just love that statement, because it emphasizes the...

The Money Bully

Posted by Crystal Brashear on

Bullying has been around since the Old Testament, but it’s only been in the past few years that it’s been getting serious media attention. As a counselor, I’m glad that people have begun to recognize how traumatizing bullying can be to victims. Children living in fear cannot...

Distracted By Busyness

Posted by Crystal Brashear on

I love checklists so much, sometimes I add stuff to a list that I’ve already finished, just so I can check it off. There’s just something about the feeling of satisfaction in completing tasks. It really appeals to me. In fact, I come from a long line of “doers” on my...
