“Sitting on a Bench”

When I was much younger, I considered myself quite the poet. I still like to write poetry although God’s grace has revealed to me that it is not as good as I once thought.  Saying this, have you ever had a work of art that you were proud of as a kid? This can beContinue reading ““Sitting on a Bench””

Last Words

People always have a fascination with the last words of celebrities, actors, and well-known people. When General John Sedgwick was sitting on his horse looking toward the Confederate Army he said, “They couldn’t hit an elephant at this distan…” He was killed by sharpshooter at the Battle of Spotsylvania Court House. You never know ifContinue reading “Last Words”

The Battle Is Already Won!

 Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord (1 Corinthians 15:58) Many ministers are familiar with the saying, “Whenever you see a ‘therefore’, you need to go back and see what is ‘thereContinue reading “The Battle Is Already Won!”

Job 19:25 reads,  “For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall standContinue reading “My Redeemer Lives”

Where Wealth Accumulates, Men Decay

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!”

The Good, The Bad, and The Spirit

I recently read an insightful, yet secular article that offered a good bit of life advice.  It proposed the idea that if we stop constantly rating our life experiences as good and bad, that we could live meaningfully “in the moment”. This is a fascinating concept; although, it can develop into a very frightening realityContinue reading “The Good, The Bad, and The Spirit”
