Blinded by the eclipse

How was this small moon able to conduct such a powerful feat? Even though it is 400 times smaller than the sun, it is 400 times closer to the earth. This fact is true about most anything in our lives. The things which we draw closest to us are the things that garnish the most attention and tend to block other more significant items.

Dealing with messy people

  In November of 1999, I finally submitted to fulltime ministry for Christian men who were trapped in sexual sin. I had become aware of this affliction in the early 90’s while working in a Christ-centered inpatient psychiatric program and witnessing its devastating grip upon Christian men.

Repeated burns

You see pain doesn’t produce change. It only gets our attention. The pain only informs us “Hey, what you are doing is not working. You are in rebellion to God and rebellion causes pain.

The Josh Duggar Effect- Trapped by your “Testimony”

Our testimony is never a statement about us but always about Jesus. It should never define us, control us or eliminate grace from our lives. When our past “testimony” controls our ability to be honest and makes our Christian walk a façade, then we are no longer walking by faith but by fear and the approval of others.

Scars Tell a Story

As we walk through this world we will be emotionally and spiritually wounded. I believe we would all choose a different path where there were no wounds, hurts or pain but it does not exist.
