Attack of the armyworms

Attack of the armyworms Joel 2:25 (NKJV) “So I will restore to you the years that the swarming locust has eaten, the crawling locust, the consuming locust, and the chewing locust, my great army which I sent among you. “I’m sorry we have completely sold out of that pesticide.” This is not what the farmer […]

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.

There is a Dead Fish on my Wall

Marriages that carry the secrets of sexual sin only become sicker and eventually terminal. We fear sharing these secret struggles because others will smell the stink and mess of my sin and we all know nobody likes messy and smelly situations in the church. Unlike my dead fish, marriages can truly be made anew and alive again but only if we take the right steps.

God being God

We often through various means try to place constraints and limits upon God’s behavior. God will not respond nor will He respect our frail attempts to “box” him in. In other words, sometimes God acts like Manny Ramirez and does things that can only be explained as “God being God.”

Breaking the Cycle

I had to face the harsh reality that even though I always felt bad about my sin, I still enjoyed it and I “protected” my sin. The fact is, I was unable to stop my sex sin cycle and I was unable to change. Only GOD was able to change me. But in order for that to happen, I had to get out of His way.

Through the Lying Eyes of Pornography/Part one:

I struggled through many relationships in my early adulthood. Rejection after rejection made my escape to pornography a habit. I didn’t have to wonder what those women thought. Their eyes were always approving. Never rejecting. I feared rejection so much I often, very painfully, broke off relationships so I could say I wasn’t the one to get dumped.

The Wise Men’s Example

The wise men still sought Jesus even after all the angels and shepherds had gone home. They could have discarded and put away their enthusiasm regarding this journey. They did not and they continued until they found Him. Let’s follow the wise men’s example and seek, follow, and worship Him year round through our daily normal activities.

Slavery- Part 2- Finding True Freedom

The blessing for me is my restoration is not built on some “spiritual high” that will fade. God’s grace is sufficient for everything that any of us are struggling with and whatever wasteland we have created he will give us a stream that provides life. What we do with that life is our choice. Gods grace is sufficient, but it’s his truth that will set us free. One of my favorite worship songs says it this way “My chains are gone, I’ve been set free. My savior, God, has ransomed me. And like a flood, his mercy rains. Unending love, Amazing Grace”. Today, I choose a true freedom.

Slavery-part 1

Freedom. A word that Americans feel such a deep connection with, but seem to have such little comprehension of. Sexual addiction had its grips on my life for 20 years. For a 30-year-old man that number is haunting and large. Society and opportunity both gave me “freedom” to make the choices to lead a life full of sexual sin. However, the truth of the matter was my addiction was slavery.
