Facade

God knows the secrets we hide. The things hidden from the world, kept inside. A front for the masses, to make one look good, is a mask for our fears — things misunderstood. A day spent in words and expressions to see, is not really all that’s in you or me. The thoughts that you cover from the brother you deride are exposed to the … Continue reading Facade

Invasion Of The Joy Snatchers

Do you ever feel as though you joy is being robbed from you? Within the last few weeks, I have. It had been a very stressful time in recent days as I took on the many tasks, dealings with people and the lack of sleep. The combination had me pretty edgy throughout most of the hours. A very physical occupation which also requires a great … Continue reading Invasion Of The Joy Snatchers

The Harrowing Sting

It has been a practice of mine within the last several years to really observe the way things fall into place. How the life (mine, personally) always has something to teach me. There has been so many lessons learned since I have picked up this practice, and by the grace of God I have come to accept those things as they are presented. I have … Continue reading The Harrowing Sting

That Particular Sin Is Sending You To Hell!

There is a good reason why I cannot see eye to eye with many Christians that I encounter. I tend to be very observant when it comes to people. I suppose it is just a part of me, as I have always had that tendency. It is not so much the physical aspects of them, (at a time, it once was and, unfortunately, I would … Continue reading That Particular Sin Is Sending You To Hell!

His Timing Is Not Ours

There is a little creek not far from our home. The road that I travel in the morning on my way to work runs over the top of the creek. I had stopped the other day to admire the beauty. The way the sun was shining through the trees that morning captured my attention. I’m not sure where this body of water runs to? It … Continue reading His Timing Is Not Ours

It’s Time To Move On

I was walking through my place of employment the other day when something really hit me. A verse had entered my mind. I started to really meditate on what it says… Get rid of all bitterness, rage, anger, harsh words, and slander, as well as all types of evil behavior. – Eph. 4:31 (NLT) There has been a deep rage stemming from a very unhealthy … Continue reading It’s Time To Move On

A New Way To Begin

The appreciation for each morning has really evolved over that past few years. I lost a good friend in 2006, and it was a very trying time for me. My buddy, who actually was one of my enemies for years prior, became one of the most trusted confidants I have ever known. We would have the deepest conversations, and he was one of the reasons … Continue reading A New Way To Begin

The Devil Laughs As I Go

Sometimes my walk with the Lord is a very real emotional rollercoaster. Yesterday started off very nice. It was a peaceful morning, and I had planned on meeting a friend of mine who needed a helping hand later within the day. The weather outside was nice. Bright, and calm. I had accomplished some things around the outside of the house that needed to be done. … Continue reading The Devil Laughs As I Go

Questions From A Searching Saved Soul

Why is it that I cannot find a church that speaks His truth? Only some truths, with a man-made spin? Why is it that the Shepherds are paid? Why is it that Jesus never stood in front of a podium, told people to give ten percent, never had His members… wait, “members?” Where did He say to become a member of a group? Did we … Continue reading Questions From A Searching Saved Soul
