Prayers offered to empty stomachs

As a follower of Christ, the one thing that I hear more than the request for prayer is the opposition of it. Those that oppose it aren’t by the people who follow Jesus Christ but those who are against the “Christian Faith”. People who have said that they were once believers until they learned “the … Continue reading

Our Shepherd 

In the recesses of our hearts we secretly hold the Lord in a temporary status of “We have faith in you”.  What we don’t allow ourselves to verbalize is that we have faith in the Lord as long as… or until we think He is keeping something from us.  We often find ourselves standing at … Continue reading

The Master’s masterpiece of a plan

We have problems with translations of the bible solely because it doesn’t say what we want in accordance to our planning of how we have set out to live our lives. We think God is so confusing but actual we will not let God speak for himself.

Think Before you Jump

Growing up as a child and a young believer in Jesus Christ, I spent a lot of time moving away from the cross and diving right into the benefits. Not to say I didn’t appreciate what Jesus did on the cross but it became background noise to the list of things I wanted from God. … Continue reading

Whatever You Do, Do it Right

1 Corinthians 10:31 Whether, then, you eat or drink or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God. The Lord meets everyone in the place where we are always found; in our hopes and dreams. Unfortunately, this is the same exact place Satan meets us as well. In this place lays our battlefield. … Continue reading
