Dating and Dollars

If you haven’t had that relationship quality and satisfaction that you always knew was out there, and you could never figure out what the heck was going on… Please, tune in for a few moments. I have something to say. It blew my mind when I realized it. How much would you like to know…

Naaman

How would you feel after coming a long way to see a Doctor for a nasty condition; knowing that the Doctor was a specialist in it, and instead of giving you some amazing new experimental pill for it — he proceeds to tell you straight faced while you are looking at him with a dead…

The Enemy

There goes an old saying: “If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”…

The Small Voice

Look around you. What do you feel? Here… in this present moment. What are you observing? Are you observing yourself? Frankly, it can be quite strange when you realize that you can think of yourself outside your own body, and your own head. In that place in this moment what do you hear? What tones…

Love

Love. I have come to know that there is no other word that is spoken of as much or as greatly. I have come to see that there is no other word that evokes more opinions than this term (other than religion or sexuality at this cultural moment in time). It has almost lost its…

Throughout history, we have loved and we have fought. We have loved rightly, and wrongly. We have fought nobly, and mistakenly. Even with the best of intents… we have made some really bad choices. In our collective search of reasons to feel strong, and to find strength… we have looked for people to inspire our…

Beauty and Blemishes

Blemishes. You know what they are. Everyone from the high to the low has had them. They are the bane of existence for some teenagers who are about to go to prom (I’ve never done that, but I’ve certainly had my fair share of acne in the past). And for certain there is no end…

The King of the Grind

It’s Monday; you’ve chugged two cups of coffee, and already want work to be over with — and it didn’t even start yet. You look at your watch to see how many free minutes you have left to yourself before you clock into the corporate slug-fest (or so it feels). You do so, and the…

Worry, Worship, and Love

Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. Isa 41:10, ESV A classic verse from Isaiah. It is one of my personal favorites. It reminds me that for all the little…

Guard Thy Heart

To they who yield their hearts unto many… this is for you. All people have commitments to things… whither they be other people, obligations, or passions. In life there are many forces and dynamics vying for your attention and time. It’s almost like a marketplace of ideas, contraptions, and whatnot — that people put forth…
