Dwelling in the Shelter of the Most High

Posted by Laci Jackson on

Once upon a time, I sat on a dock by the Colorado River. It was spring in Texas, so it was a warm day, but the breeze was pleasant. With my eyes closed, the combination of the wind and the sound of the water against the shore could almost convince me that I was beside the ocean. I was there to...

Flaws and All

Is it too cliche for a church staff member to say that they love the church? I mean, I really love it. I have had one job outside of the church in my adult life and I feel like every day was me biding my time until I was back. I have worked in several church bodies, and I can tell you that we do...

Set Your Hearts

Have you ever gone through a season in your life that caused you to look back and ask yourself where you left the Lord? Sure, you went to church, prayed over meals, attended your CG, and maybe read the occasional c|Life devotional, but can you relate to the feeling that you lived your life...

An Elevated Purpose

I am the world’s biggest fan of the TV show, Parks and Recreation. I have seen every episode at least three times, I own every season, and am currently watching it on Netflix. I’m a go big or go home kinda gal. Early on in the series, a character named Tom introduces us to his...

Why Am I A Christian?

Posted by Laci Jackson on

I was recently in a class where we were asked the question, “Why are you a Christian?” I immediately began to sort through all the Bible and theological knowledge in my head in the pursuit of forming the most convincing answer to this question. Prepare to be impressed, guys...

Walls Don't Rebuild Themselves

Posted by Laci Jackson on

I cannot imagine having the weight of a nation on my shoulders or the task of restoring its glory by building a wall. Get your political mind out of the gutter! I’m obviously referring to Nehemiah and his task of rebuilding the wall around Jerusalem. As modern Americans, we can have a hard...

One Sacrifice

Posted by Laci Jackson on

While in seminary, I had the privilege (said with slight sarcasm) to write a 40-page chart over the book of Leviticus. It was a nightmare. However, through that process, I gained this super-detailed insight into the methods and requirements of the Old Testament sacrificial system. Of course, you...

We're All Needy

I love to ask my 10-year-old niece to do things for me, especially when I am watching TV. "Hey, will you hand me the remote?" "Are you going to the kitchen? Get me a drink, please."  "Can you pretty-please [fill in the blank with any request related to not wanting to get off the...

Calm In Any Size Storm

Turbulence is an interesting thing. I have zero fear of flying. When turbulence hits a plane I am on, I'm more annoyed because I will likely get motion sick than I am worried about any impending doom. For others, if the pilot so much as sneezes they see their lives flash before their eyes and...

Trying to Be More Like the Father

Posted by Laci Jackson on

For the past month, every Sunday has hit with me a sense of reality. I have been waiting for this last message, hoping we could skip it over it because it hits a little too close to home. Every day I wake up with the choice to be the older brother from the parable in Luke 15. Most days, if I am...
