Christ Like Part 1

I find myself unable to sleep tonight, something I’ve grown quite unaccustomed to as of late; I’ve certainly worked out quite a sound sleep schedule! Tonight, however, is different. I […]

You are What You Think

Welcome to America, the land of the free and home of the brave; at least, it used to be.. Now it resembles something more along the lines of “land of […]

All Things

“And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.” ROMANS 8:28 I will […]

Being Still: From Proper Use to Excuse.

Relinquishing the reigns and handing them to Christ doesn’t mean that we stop running; in fact, it means the opposite! We keep running! The only thing that changes is the […]

Children of Light

“For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light.” –Ephesians 5:8 Imagine if you will for a moment that you are […]

The Dogs of War

I know what you’re thinking, if you have read Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar, Plutarch’s Lives of the Noble Greeks and Romans (which was Shakespeare’s source for Julius Caesar), Victor Hugo even […]

From You, to New

Sometimes it seems like it can be so easy to lose track of who we are in God! We get caught up in the things that are coming against us, overwhelmed with […]

There is certainly a lot of indecisiveness over what exactly it means to “walk by faith and not by sight;” I cannot say how many articles I have read that say it means […]
