Last night, 59 missiles were dropped onto Syria by the orders of the President of the United States. In my mind, another war has just started. Or, perhaps, it may have begun years ago, when a nations President determined that he had the power to bomb his own citizens. Either way, in the past week, many… Continue reading A Light in a World Full of Darkness
"Talk, talk is cheap Give me a word you can keep" Lifehouse - Halfway Gone Like most individuals who were raised in the Church, I've never really had a time period in my life where I was unaware of the truth. However, I have definitely had more than one time frame where I knew the truth, yet… Continue reading When You Say Nothing At All
What if I approached you - where ever you are right now - and told you that, not only does someone know the exact plan for your entire life, but it's better than you could possibly imagine? You'd probably think I'm insane. No one knows your future, right? Wrong. God knows the plan for your forever. All… Continue reading What About the Here & Now?
Dear God, I'm sorry. I'm sorry I stumble and I'm sorry I fall. I'm sorry that, at times, my faith in you waivers. I'm sorry that I am not the perfect image of you. I'm sorry that my patience runs short. I'm sorry that I lie. I'm sorry that I screw up. I'm sorry that… Continue reading Dear God… I Messed Up… Again
Here I am, a little more into my spiritual journey and suddenly God starts asking me to do things that I don't really want to do. I'm pretty sure we've all been here. That point when a rough situation passes and then God starts asking you to reshape yourself and - in reality - work on your… Continue reading When You Hear What You Don’t Want To Hear
So there I was, with a drill in my mouth and the sound of screaming in my ears as my dentist replaced yet another bad filling in my molar. Then it occurred to me that the dentist (yup, talking about the man in the white coat who tortures little children) is kind of like God. Now… Continue reading Are Our Teeth Imperfect?
Everyday, we wake up, we go through the motions, we chat with co-workers and we go home. There's nothing wrong with that, at least on the surface. I mean, the truth is that most of us aren't sinning in extreme ways throughout our daily routine. However, many of us worry about the little things - will… Continue reading But the Greatest of these is Love
Ahh, you've all heard it. Whether it was at a wedding or in a cheesy chick-flick, you've heard someone quote the "Love Passage". Four verses that describe the perfect love, the love you should have for your significant and the love you should have for - wait for it - God. However, sometimes we forget that… Continue reading The Relationship That Counts The Most
I talk to my best friend all day, every day. When I wake up in the morning - before anyone else is awake - I spend a few minutes catching up. At work, when I need a minute to think, I talk to him. When I'm driving down the road and just trying to get… Continue reading When Your Best Friend Is God
Today, while I was walking to work from where I parked, the wind was gusting across Milwaukee. However, unlike a "normal" windy day, the wind would throw me backward, then change direction and blow me forward, and then change direction - again - and toss me to the right and left. No matter how stiffly I… Continue reading When the Wind Blows
