Newness: All The Things

In Mind, Soul by Caleb

Every good story goes to crap before the glorious climax. He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!” (Revelations 21:5) It’s difficult to imagine how the Creator of everything intends to make it all new. Humanity seems to be doing a pretty good job of making a mess of it all. All living things die around …

Mental Health: Create Space

In Mind, Soul by Caleb

Fight for space, stillness, and margin in a world of overwhelming chaos and technological connectedness. Create space to not be okay. With your words, your face, your presence, create space for it to be okay to not be okay. This goes for YOU first. Have compassion for yourself and create space to rest and not have it all together, all …

Fun Socks

In Body, Soul by Caleb

Roads and Trails

In Soul by Caleb

Take the trail less traveled. “Where we’re going, we don’t need roads.” —Doc There’s a mountain preserve near my home where I walk and sometimes run (but mostly walk). Today, I took the path to the left and followed it up a small desert mountain. From the top, I could see for miles. Looking over the vast terrain, something jumped …

Experiencing God in Coffee

In Body, Soul by Caleb

I’m not promoting bean worship, but let’s be real. People love their coffee. But I cry to you for help, Lord; in the morning my prayer comes before you. Psalm 88:13 For many, coffee turns their morning mourning into dancing. My dad goes to bed thinking about morning coffee. My wife puts 2-3 cups away before contributing to the world …

Experiencing God in Kids

In Soul by Caleb

Children are a window to the upside-down, Eternal Kingdom that’s already here. But Jesus called the children to him and said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child …

Experiencing God

Answer: You experience a reflection or aroma of God when you’re with them. …

The Whisper

In Mind, Soul by Caleb

After the noise, disruptions, and inner chaos, if we keep listening, we’ll hear the whisper. And after the fire came a gentle whisper. 1 Kings 19:12 The Spirit is always whispering. Maybe He’s humming, singing, beat-boxing, or calling-out…but the question is, are we tuning in? Are we listening? Are we fighting through all the competing noises and distractions—outside and inside …

Meditation Isn’t “New Age”

In Soul by Caleb

People have prayed and meditated throughout human history in an effort to connect with God’s Spirit. He traveled forty days and forty nights until he reached Horeb, the mountain of God. There he went into a cave and spent the night. 1 Kings 19:8-9 I’ve never seen this until now, but I think this story about Elijah’s triumph, then panic, …

Good Spirit

In Soul by Caleb

Stick with the Spirit of Good. Teach me to do your will, for you are my God; may your good Spirit lead me on level ground. Psalm 143:10 Have you ever walked into a room or place and just felt something was off? Call it darkness, ugliness, or evil… but you’ve felt the feels. Often, it’s places. Sometimes it’s people …
