If it weren’t for that deceiving snake, all of us would life just a little bit easier. And yet, the lie was told, apple bitten, and the fall of man was the greatest catastrophe to ever occur in the history of mankind. I often joke about the first sin of man being that he listened […]

Of all elements of creation, man was the most intricate and complicated being that our Creator created. Mountains bedazzle the senses, oceans confound the learned, and the galaxies contain untold worlds that will never be discovered. If the Creator made galaxies so distant it must require light years to measure their distance, how much more […]

I recently spoke to a friend of mine who told me of a good acquaintance who, upon leaving for college, began writing in a notebook. On the front cover of the notebook, he wrote the name of his younger brother. And, with every new experience, challenge, and question that college afforded him, he chronicled the […]

Life presents many situations that can be won by pure thought, intelligence, and careful choices. However, and this is a “however” that breaks my heart, there are also situations where logic and reasoning simply cannot be put to use. Another puzzle piece to fall through my fingers and I know she is forever gone. A […]

In the bible, we are told we will not encounter trials that we are not capable of handling; we will not be faced with situations where we are determined to meet a bitter end because we are truly incapable of walking through that situation and accomplishing victory.

However, the concept of this has been on my heart/mind […]

I will it. We will it. They will it. God will it. The will of God. How are we to know what it is? Recently, I had the displeasure of hearing an individual claim that those in leadership positions at churches are in such places because the congregation ought to trust that these people are […]

One of my favorite parts of Monday morning is the artificial sense that the week is off to a fresh start; errs from the weekend are washed away, church has renewed your faith, and the work has only just begun. Perhaps my faith wasn’t recharged this weekend, or two days wasn’t enough to get enough […]

I believe in a generational responsibility that each passing generation ought to try and somehow help the next generation(s) somehow do better than their predecessors. It’s commonly accepted that history, if not studied, will only repeat itself. Jewish persecution existed hundreds of years prior to the holocaust. Genocide has occurred within our young, twenty-something lifespan. […]

Sitting in bed, it dawned on me that the battlefield exit for a warrior is opposite the side of his/her entrance. Waking up to “I am a champion” as my alarm clock, I stepped out of bed with determination to make today one that will not soon be forgotten. My prayer — LORD, may I […]
