Cold Pillow, Warm Bed

Sometimes life’s greatest comforts come only from being in life’s most uncomfortable positions.  Like being snuggled up in bed on a really cold day.  There is no sensation like it.  Our focus on the cold (Cold being an absence of heat), makes us appreciate the heat all the more.  Spiritually, this is true as well.Continue reading “Cold Pillow, Warm Bed”

My Redeemer Lives

My Redeemer lives.  We often hear this in songs of praise and adoration of God.  But Biblically, is there such a beautiful proclamation? To no surprise, this is a Biblical proclamation; however, it may not be where you would expect. Job 19:25 reads,  “For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall standContinue reading “My Redeemer Lives”

Man By Eternity’s Cliff Side

Once a child, yet evolved into a man. Looking over the cliffs, I see the sky. In my soul, delighting that You are nigh. That Your eye can see across such great span. Across the fields and above blue seas. Composing essence by power of Word. By nature, paper, and by paper heard Thy refined,Continue reading “Man By Eternity’s Cliff Side”

I Fear No Monster

Monsters Fear tantalizes. It is something that no one wants to experience on a personal level; however, excites them second hand. This is increasingly obvious with the world’s saturated market depicting trivialized figures of horror and demise. Zombies, vampires, demons, and lately (One a bit more personal) terrorists. We often describe these creatures and beingsContinue reading “I Fear No Monster”

Addicted To The Ministry

Addiction Addiction. The very word makes many Americans feel a shudder. It brings about painful memories and vivid imagery of someone with an addiction, if not themselves.  Often, our mind displays connotations of alcohol, cigarettes, and or illicit drug use.  Whereas, such thoughts are reasonable.  Nearly 21 million Americans possess at least one addiction andContinue reading “Addicted To The Ministry”

Prayer of Comfort

Father, I am going off script. I know that You are not the author of confusion, but God, I am confused and I don’t know where that leaves me. Nowhere can I run to escape you, nor would I ever, yet as life rolls on like waves in high tide, I am lost. The DevilContinue reading “Prayer of Comfort”

Gifts and Grace

Christians who seek power, an experience, or a purpose often desire supernatural gifts of the Holy Spirit.  Yet, the knowledge of God’s grace is the greatest gift God gives us today.  Now, I know what some are already saying.  “What about 1 Corinthians 12:1?” In the membership for the Corinthian church, unfortunately, the members wereContinue reading “Gifts and Grace”

Where Wealth Accumulates, Men Decay

Wealth.  There is a hefty emphasis placed upon the topic of wealth, regardless of cultural background.  From the beginning of time, man has begun a vain pursuit of accumulating “stuff”. It is an endless pursuit; which although has its place in everyday life, can sap the very essence of humanity out of people.  The IrishContinue reading “Where Wealth Accumulates, Men Decay”

We Can Go On!

Recently I was reading from the classic devotional, “My Utmost for His Highest”, and I read an installment titled, This Experience Must Come. In this writing Oswald Chambers recounts the story of how Elijah was taken up to Heaven, leaving the prophet Elisha alone to himself (2 Kings 2:11-12). From this moment, he had toContinue reading “We Can Go On!”
