In all things

Exploring life, faith, and connections to the world beyond religion


About The Blog

At the dawn of the Christian church, the Apostle Paul wrote, "The Son is before all things, and in him all things hold together" (Colossians 1:17). In these pages, we will explore a variety of topics, but in all things will reflect on how it is Jesus Christ who is at the center of all creation and holds all things together by his power.

Prayer for Right Priorities

From Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ, to those temporarily residing abroad (in Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, the province of Asia, and Bithynia) who are chosen according to the foreknowledge of God the Father by being set apart by the Spirit for obedience and for sprinkling with Jesus Christ’s blood. May grace and peace be yours in full measure! (1 Peter 1:1-2)

Lord, lead us into a knowledge of what is truly important. 

Father, you have chosen us from before the foundation of the earth; nothing happening in our lives today surprises you. Spirit, by our spiritual union with you, we have been set apart from the things the world chases after. Son, by the sprinkling of your blood we have been brought into the New Covenant unto obedience to you command to love others as you have loved us. 

Triune God, we ask now that you direct our hearts and thoughts into your will and desires for this day. As we rest in your love and perfect provision, fill us to overflowing, that we may be a light and a blessing to those whom you place in our path each moment. 

In the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen.
