Should I or shouldn’t I?

When I write it is problematic for me. It causes people to either freak out or say good job. This is my open journal of life, my thoughts, intentions, my failures and fears. I am going to take a break. When and if I feel it is time to return, I will. If not, good … Continue reading Should I or shouldn’t I?


Prayer and Presence

Prayer is a powerful tool in the arsenal of the Christian. I will not waste my precious few words here disputing that truth, that would be futile. However, I do want to challenge us in our thinking to go beyond the posture of supplication into bold and energetic action. The Holy Spirit is our intercessor with the … Continue reading Prayer and Presence

Deal with the Sin, but First Remove the Shame

I had someone ask me how we could drive home the fact that using porn is sinful without shaming the individual. Is there a way, even in the midst of habitual sinful behavior that goes directly against what God commands, in which we can show love, respect, and compassion for the person and remain strong in our stance for righteousness … Continue reading Deal with the Sin, but First Remove the Shame

Not Giving up!

My contribution on behalf of those who either can't or don't want to speak for themselves, or don't desire attention drawn to them can seem futile at times. Expressing my obvious frustration and pointing out what I see as inadequacies and outright failures aren't exactly drawing people into the conversation!   The truth is that it takes decades … Continue reading Not Giving up!

Yes its Sin, say the word.

  Could it be that political correctness has spilled over into the church and we don't ask the tough questions or confront the issues that make the asker or hearer uncomfortable?  How can we talk about the church, speak of its growth, and what the church "needs" to be in this present age and NOT address our own hidden … Continue reading Yes its Sin, say the word.

This Secret Will Destroy Your Church

Men. We are an enigma of sorts, but then again pretty easy to figure out. We are hunters, conquerors, and protectors; we are strong and carry a lot of responsibility, we are problem solvers, warriors; we are men. There are also many things about us that aren't nearly as impressive, but don't worry I won't … Continue reading This Secret Will Destroy Your Church

Evaluation and Spiritual Changes

When your wrong your wrong, and I have been wrong...a lot! I have lived many years in the wrong, so to speak. I am what you might call an expert on the topic not that I am proud of it!  When we are wrong and we refuse to see it, acknowledge it for what it … Continue reading Evaluation and Spiritual Changes

Detoxing From Internet Addiction

Some of you are shuddering right now, haha, wait, what? You want me to give up my lifeline? It's funny how easily we can get out of balance in our lives. All you have to do is look around and it is everywhere. People are transfixed, mesmerized, yes, even hypnotized by their technology, I get … Continue reading Detoxing From Internet Addiction

Moral Failure Isn’t The End

Some would say there are failures in life that disqualifies us from being used by God in certain ways. I simply don't agree with that premise because a God of limitless grace isn't hindered by our mistakes. The breakdown happens when we get involved and decide that there isn't enough grace that we can accept … Continue reading Moral Failure Isn’t The End
