Killing Us Softly

Today is one of those days when I am done with trying so hard to tell myself that I’m not going to hell. In this very moment of my life, I am thinking that I’ll probably end up there. I’ll explain… This whole blog of mine is centered around the living Christ and the work He has done, does and will do in me. So, … Continue reading Killing Us Softly

Our Devouring Ways

So many of us hear the knock at the door, but never answer it. It sometimes amazes me to recognize how we refuse to believe in God–or to do what the Lord would have us do–because of the accountability it entails. We simply would rather do what we want. Everyone has a different thing that they cling to that goes directly against the will of … Continue reading Our Devouring Ways

Departure

I watched a young man and his little boy play around a shopping cart as they waited at the bus stop. I wondered, as I watched the little boy, if we return to the same sort of innocence when we move on from this life.

Awesome! What’s even more intriguing, even … Continue reading We Are Stardust

Staring Into Existence

What are these things that we call, “space and time”? We never truly understand it, no matter what theory comes along. No matter how proud we become of the hypothesis. What is this space that we live in? We divide it up, the infinite, into little compartments. Walls. Fences. Divisions. We claim and fill our spaces, within, outside, with the collections, trying hard to satisfy … Continue reading Staring Into Existence

Integrity Is Relative

The do-gooders; those who are morally upright. There are so many different perceptions one may have when taking a look at them. I often wonder what drives, or why one is driven, to be a stand up citizen. Outside looking in, we observe the front that is put on by others. Over time, we may get to see the true nature of those whom we … Continue reading Integrity Is Relative
