Power

It’s in songs, and it’s in the heart. It is synonymous with control these days, rather than ability. POWER. Just as Thomas Edison tried to get “power” in the current wars with Nikolai Tesla — men strive for control, rather than the improvement of their abilities. Power is felt from a litany of different concepts,…

The Healer

Jesus (the Way) did aerobics WAY before it was cool in the 80’s. He walked a lot. The LORD says to my lord: “Sit at my right hand until I make your enemies a footstool for your feet.” Psalm 110:1, KJV He spoke to whomever would listen in Israel, Jew and Gentile alike. Yet, he…

Pieces of Peace

I don’t want to mention its name, yet it is running amok in the minds of people. It’s a virus. It is reasonable to fear something new that causes sickness, mild or otherwise. It still amazes me just how much people are panicking over it. No… I haven’t seen anyone freak out in person, but…

The Father

The timeless prayer Jesus prayed to the Father is one of my favorites, and I have come to understand it better over time. You probably know it. Our Father who is in heaven, may your name be revered forever. May your kingdom come, and may your will be done on the earth as it is…

Mercy

There is a word that can tame the very bowels of hell. It is a word that manifested so greatly in the Son of God, that even demons need muscle relaxers to stop the shaking in their knees. It is a word that the devil himself cannot use, for it has become foreign to him….

Emmanuel

Over 2000 years ago a little guy came into the world. Jesus. There were no hospital beds, and no cuddly blue blankets. For him it was something that would make cereal makers very proud. Straw and swaddling cloth. And for the bed? Something that smelled like the sheep that ate from it. A manger. Says…

The Wisdom and the Word

Can you imagine a world without walls? It’s kinda hard for me too. There are some famous ones (The Great Wall of China), and some infamous ones (The Iron Curtain). Usually they just give a structure its form, yet in some places they are canvas of art. In the scriptures there are a few stories…

The Cross and the Crucible

Metal is everywhere. Music, skyscrapers, you name it. I have known a few welders, and they are knee deep in the stuff. They certainly can tell you a thing or two about making things with metal. The same thing goes for blacksmiths. They still exist these days, albeit in smaller numbers than in the not…

The Craftsman

Landscaping. It’s what I do for work. I have done it on and off over the course of four years. Where I am at presently I have learned much. In facing elements… I have had a lot of time to think about things (since any yard and how to attack it becomes quite routine). One…

Terror and Tenderness

It’s about that time of year again. Where grandmas will be making pumpkin pie. Jack O’Lanterns will be smiling with their goofy ghoulish grins. Many a man and lady will meet their vampires and not know witch way to turn, or were to wolf, lol. Fall is fun. For many Halloween is fun. It is…
