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…

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…

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…
