I Was Equipped at RSM

August 7th, 2013 by RampAdmin | Posted in Blog, RSM | 2 Comments »

I was introduced to the Ramp at a youth conference in Kansas City in the summer of 2010. I had just graduated college and was starting out on a journey of chasing my dreams. When I heard Karen Wheaton talk about a school starting at the Ramp in only two weeks, God said, “Go,” and …Read More

What is Good?

April 11th, 2013 by RSM Student | Posted in Blog, RSM | No Comments »

Recently, I began reading Genesis. If you’ve ever read Genesis, and you’re like me, you have a lot of questions…like this one. Throughout creation God made things and called them good, but what is good? My definition of good includes foods I enjoy or acts I’ve done. However, when I began to study God’s definition …Read More

Purpose and Eggs: What They Have in Common

March 26th, 2013 by RSM Student | Posted in Blog, RSM | No Comments »

Many times when I’m waiting on God, I tend to be like a bucking bull at a Texas rodeo. I’ll do everything in my power to kick the gate down and move forward. I’m sure I’m not alone. I love this quote by Arnold Glasow, “The key to everything is patience. You get the chicken …Read More

Hearing the Voice of God

March 21st, 2013 by RampAdmin | Posted in Blog, RSM | No Comments »

Have you ever tried to talk to someone in the middle of a concert? There’s so much noise around you that their words are drowned out. So, you lean in to the point that your ear is close to their mouth. Yet, their words are muffled, and you’re left not knowing what they said. In …Read More

The Process of Your Seed

March 14th, 2013 by RSM Student | Posted in RSM | No Comments »

Process is a word that I can’t stand. I’m such an instantaneous person—waiting for a bag of popcorn to finish seems like an eternity. Our culture is filled with instant gratification. There are fast food places on every corner and overnight-one-hit wonders. But when it comes to the things of the spirit, many of us …Read More

Nourished or Starving: How’s Your Spiritual Health?

February 27th, 2013 by RSM Student | Posted in Blog, RSM | No Comments »

Are you spiritually nourished? Our body needs food and can’t function properly without it. Just as our bodies can’t survive without food, our spirits can’t survive without God. Just as our bodies crave food, our spirits yearn for God. During Stacie Reeser’s series, Vibrant, she explained that our bodies crave certain things because there are …Read More

Compromising the Call

February 19th, 2013 by RSM Student | Posted in Blog, RSM | No Comments »

If you’ve been around the Ramp, you’ve heard the word compromise. We use it frequently. We live a life that doesn’t surrender to the temptation of compromise. We continue seeking despite circumstances, failures, and successes. We simply don’t negotiate. When I think of compromise, I think of an inconsistent devotional life. I associate it with …Read More

Opportunity for Victory

February 12th, 2013 by RSM Student | Posted in Blog, RSM | 1 Comment »

Many of us have an idea of victory in our minds that is quite lofty. We think of victory as the consummation of whatever circumstances or issues we’ve been facing. Victory, in our ideas, is the absolute end of a specific type of conflict or temptation. We expect to never experience that situation or be …Read More

The Function of Imperfection

February 7th, 2013 by RSM Student | Posted in Blog, RSM | No Comments »

Recently in prayer, I began reminding God of all my imperfections. As soon as I began to list them, He spoke these words to me: “The Body of Christ isn’t called to be perfect; it’s called to be functioning.” I didn’t list another one. I began to look at my own body; it is full …Read More

Hot, Cold or Somewhere In Between

February 5th, 2013 by RSM Student | Posted in Blog, RSM | No Comments »

Have you ever found yourself spiritually dry and indifferent? Have you ever been pouring your effort and energy out in work for God, but meanwhile slacked in your devotional life? If you’ve experienced this, you understand what Jesus is saying to this church, “I know all the things you do [so we know they’re doing …Read More
