The Secret Room

The Secret Room

Imagine there was a secret room in which you could enter and no one, including God, could see, hear or know what you did within its walls. Behind the covering of these walls existed your favorite sin. You could indulge in this sin with no fear of consequence during your time there as well as once you left. Would you choose to enter this room?

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. We can, however, choose how we deal with these wounds. When we take those wounds to our heavenly Father, He turns them into a scar that makes us unique and special.

The Blessing of the Thorn

I realized throughout these interactions that the church had a problem and we weren’t dealing with it. Probably, the most beneficial thing I did was to listen to these brothers and sisters in Christ that were in the struggle. Since that time in the early 90’s I have listened to hundreds of stories from Christian sex addicts.

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.

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. I had also been involved in Christian sexual […]

No strings attached love

Romans 12:9 Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor what is evil. Cling to what is good. (NKJV) We receive a repeated message from a telemarketer that informs us that they are waiting to deliver our free “I’ve fallen and I can’t get up” monitor. The guy on the message sounds like your best buddy and genuinely concerned for our […]

Where do you face your tent?

Genesis 13:11-13 11 Then Lot chose for himself all the plain of Jordan, and Lot journeyed east. And they separated from each other.12 Abram dwelt in the land of Canaan, and Lot dwelt in the cities of the plain and pitched his tent even as far as Sodom. 13 But the men of Sodom were exceedingly wicked and sinful against the Lord.

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 goal is not to figure out a way to avoid pain. The goal is obedience and to submit our rebellious nature to the Lord.

Approval Addiction

What motivates your works today? Is it for the affirmation, validation and approval of man or is it because of your love for Christ? You cannot do both.
