  • Overcoming Fear

    Overcoming Fear

    In today’s society, we are constantly faced with fear. Whether it be scare-tactics used by sales companies, or creepy concepts presented on investigative television shows, seeds of fear are thrown at our hearts. If we let them, they sink in, take root, and grow. If you find yourself battling fear, as I do at times, […]

  • Spiritual War

    Spiritual War

    Watch me as I run through clouds, The fog left far behind. I open my eyes under water, Its sting won’t steal my sight. I take a knife to the brush, The weeds dodge as I pass. Step on sticks, peel off stuck ticks, and grab hold of what will last.  Don’t tell me to […]

  • Catching Fire

    Catching Fire

    While reading Acts chapter eight this past Friday, several things stuck out. The book of Acts is rather inspiring: people, filled with the Holy Spirit, following God with complete abandon. They don’t worry about pleasing people. They aren’t stopped by fear of torture or death. They know the truth, and that truth comes flowing out […]

  • Burning Rubber & Saving Grace

    Burning Rubber & Saving Grace

    I once heard someone use an analogy like the following to explain grace. Imagine you’re driving down a country road. Noticing nobody else around, you stomp on the gas pedal and start burning rubber, eager to arrive at your destination. After several minutes, you hear the alarming sound of sirens as flashing lights appear in […]
