Christians, I am reminded of a situation where I saw firsthand how discontent our flesh can be. A relative I love had a legitimate complaint with their old television set and that TV was replaced. A brand new TV was set up for them and on the very next day, and there were complaints about … More Be Content
Christians, many years ago God was giving me a revelation about marriage and how it is like forging a sword. He showed me the idea of the metal being heated together, pounded out, shaped, smoothed, and sharpened and polished. I was telling my wife about these attributes and we were discussing how they fit into … More Special Anniversary Edition: Forging a Sword
Christians, I remember my last week of finals in college before graduation. It was a very exciting time for me because for four and a half years I had studied, taken tests, studied more, taken more tests and that routine was getting old. I was ready to kiss those bubble answer sheets goodbye. No more … More The Many Tests of God
Christians, have you ever been tested by God Almighty? Have you truly been challenged in your faith? Have you ever been put in a position where you wondered, “Did I Really hear from God?” or “Am I a raving mad lunatic?” I have faced trials as such, I have been put in scenarios by God … More Right on Track
Christians, recently I was realizing that often we face trying circumstances, situations that are difficult or pressing.

I’ve lived in the Midwest all my life, I’ve heard the warning sirens go … More The Eye of the Storm
Christians, a work in progress is often hard to understand. Every painting an artist paints inevitably will not be the same. The brush strokes on the canvas can vary in length, width, depth, as well as color, frequency and consistency. I believe that God is painting a portrait of each and every one of our … More The Great Artist
Christians, my wife and I used to occasionally walk along a specific path with many trees around it. At one point there were trees and shrub bushes that grew over the path. It was really annoying to walk around them, and we wanted them gone. One day, to our surprise, we walked along the path … More Removing the Roots
Christians, when I was in middle school, it was the time when those WWJD, (What Would Jesus Do?) bracelets with the tiny buckle were trendy. I remember a couple of my friends wore them, I think I may have had one, but I didn’t have the courage to wear it. Anyway, a friend of mine … More F.R.O.G.
Christians, have you ever felt the weight of the world on your shoulders? Have you ever felt the pressure of the challenges you face so strong? Do you know the intensity of the trials you face? We are blessed, able to live above sin, purified, sanctified, and soon to be glorified, right? Why do we … More The Pressure Cooker
