Unhinged Word:

The Biblical Journeys of a Theoretical Adventurist

Unhinged Word

Welcome to Unhinged Word. This blog is a glimpse into my personal biblical study, both past and present. As a grown up church/ministry kid, reformed rebel, and pastor’s wife, I have looked at God’s Word from a few different angles. I have always been fascinated by Scripture. As a child, I was enamored by its heroes. As a rebellious teenager and young adult, I abused it as I constantly sought for loopholes, excuses, and exclusions by pulling verses out of a context I was all too familiar with. Several years ago, I emerged, my life a mess, ready to open my Bible, not to find heroes, not to look for my own agenda, but to receive the fullness of God’s Word. My life has never been the same. I love to study Scripture more than ever. The heroes are even more heroic than I realized, but they are fueled, not by their own character, but by faith in an Almighty God. The old loopholes I used to search for have dissolved in the face of a full and complete Gospel that doesn’t hinge on what you can get away, with but on how much of God is available to those who will seek him .  My own agenda brought only disaster, but God’s agenda for me has restored life, happiness, and light.

Whether you’re a student of the Word, simply curious, or just a little lost, I pray that you’ll read something here that God can use to adjust your perspective and tug at your heart.  God’s Word is vast and contains the answers to life, death, and eternity.  Its also a personal message from God to you! All that  you’re searching for is in its pages.  If you want to know the Lord, He has revealed Himself to all who seek Him through His Word to us. I hope you enjoy what you find in Unhinged Word, but more importantly, I encourage you to open your Bible to Genesis 1:1 with an open mind and heart, let go of preconceived notions and doctrines, and just let the I Am speak to your heart.

Messiah to Me Series: Caleb

To the prophets, He was fulfillment, the completion of covenant, the coming redeemer. To those who walk in darkness, He is the light. To His earthly followers, he was Yeshua. To many, He is Jesus. To millions, He is salvation. To the weary, He is rest. To the thirsty, He is the living water. To the hungry, He is the bread of life. To the sick, He is the healer. To Israel, He is the righteous branch, the lion of Judah, eternal king, Anointed One. To the Gentiles, He is the hope of redemption. To the seeker, He is the Answer, the Truth. To the lost, He is the Way. To the wanderer, He is home.

New Beginnings for a New Year

No matter how many times we have failed to stay true to our New Year’s Resolutions, we really can’t help but make new ones, even if we keep our vows a secret. Regardless of whether you keep these goals to yourself or whether you proudly proclaim them from the rooftops, here are a few things to remember as you evaluate your path through the new year. I’ve learned most of these lessons the hard way, but you don’t have to!
