Another Love Dare

I’d like you to understand when I say, “God is our God.” Of course he is. Even Satan knows that. But just knowing this truth isn’t all that being a Christian is about. Mark 8:34 says: “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me.” (NIV) Let’s say there’s a guy that ...

An Etch-A-Sketch Life

Life is like an Etch-A-Sketch. No, really; bear with me here for a moment. It takes a lot of skill and patience to create something beautiful, and even one little mistake can ruin the whole picture. Think about it. Say a young child is trying hard to draw a picture on an etch-a-sketch. No matter how hard he tries, he ...

A Rainy Day

I don’t understand people on rainy days. Why do they drive faster when it’s raining? As if the roads aren’t dangerous enough when the ground is dry, they choose to take a risk with wet roads.

Skill Will Bring Success…

Just when you think life is crappy…when you hate what has been given you…if you want another person’s shoes to walk in…watch this teen make his life whole out of what he has! “If the axe is dull and its edge unsharpened, more strength is needed but skill will bring success.” (Ecclesiastes 10:10 NIV)

End It

No one talk to me; no one get near me: I can’t handle it. Lock the door so no one can come in, and no one can go out. Look in the mirror, see nothing worth looking at. Why do I look this way? Why can’t I look good? Sit and think about my life, and how there’s nothing worth ...

Worth the Wait

“‘Do I bring to the moment of birth and not give delivery?’ says the LORD. ‘Do I close up the womb when I bring to delivery?’ says your God.” (Isaiah 66:9 NIV) As I held the newborn baby in my arms, I marveled at her tiny fingers and toes. Her soft skin and delicate body took my breath away. As ...

Knowing the Begotten – He Really Has A Plan

“‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the LORD, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.’” (Jeremiah 29:11 NIV) Sometimes things are hard to understand. When my friends get mad at me or I mess up it feels like everything crashes down on top of me. That’s ...
