I’m so very tired tonight. I’m literally worn out. I got up this morning not feeling good and as the day has continued… my emotions are now running a bit thin. Too many details as to why. I was driving to a friends house to pick up something and just drove about 4-5 miles past my … More Out of a broken heart.
On March the 20th, I wrote “Walking by Faith“: At this time in my life, I’m not sure where I am heading… but I do know I am heading in the right direction. God has restored a lot in my life. The stirring in my soul is difficult… yet I know it isn’t being stirred … More different roads together
Is there a difference between “American” faith and “Biblical” faith? Our society tends to Americanize everything – to the point that what we preach is only relevant to Americans. “What is faith?

…Unleash the Untamed Faith Within Choose a Dangerous Road This is a new book I bought today at church. It is written by Erwin McManus one of my favorite thinkers and writers.

A few years ago I had a dream to take a group of teenagers down to Central and South America. I even met with a missionary from the country I was looking at taking this group to. I had begun gathering information and resources to learn enough of the language for the youth to be … More Hollow Eyes
I have been listening to some vintage Christian music the past few days. It’s been a very encouraging experience to listen to some tunes that are over 20 years old. So much of the music I listened to then really shaped my young Christian life. Petra, Whiteheart, Russ Taff, Stryper, Jerusalem, and U2… they each have had their … More Walking by faith
I Cry When peace cannot be found And sleep won’t visit me tonight A restless mind that I can’t tame I walk the floor, I call your name Finally silence, and the tears begin to fall I cry and you’re the one who hears me calling I fall so easily, but you’re there to catch … More at the heart of it
