It’s interesting to me that James Buchanan, the president who preceded one of the greatest national leaders in history, Abraham Lincoln, was a dud. Presiding dilatorily over a bitterly divided nation, he passively led the country into civil war. Yet, God was in the shadows of a nation that was tearing apart at the seams, molding the humblest of men for His glory. This gives me much to hope in.
When God wants to drill a man, and thrill a man and skill a man,
When God wants to mold a man to play the noblest part,
When He yearns with all His heart to create so great and bold a man That all the world should be amazed,
Watch His methods, watch His ways…

It’s been made clear to me that Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life. In the pursuit for truth and meaning, I have found there is no higher calling one can aspire to than to do that which God has planned for them.
When writing "response" pieces (as opposed to some personal work I post here), I seek to develop content that doesn’t merely take a stance (“for” or “against”), but goes to the heart of the matter to reveal an ethic that speaks louder than opinion. Developing content for A Response gives me great satisfaction as I discern and highlight overlooked truths in situations that confront us on a daily basis. View all posts by A Response
