Faith Watching

Trophies and prizes are won when no one is watching — Anonymous In the heart of a solid Christian faith, this quote should come as an encouragement, a builder, a soother, and a reminder that God’s ultimate reward promised to us is still there, waiting to be grasped in the day of our rapture if…

Tears on the Cross: A Personal Testimony

I’ve rarely cried in my life. I’ve endured some crippling physical pain without shedding a tear. I’ve been haunted night after night, day after day by the mental endurance marathon of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and never shed the first tear. I consider crying something kids do. I mean grown men don’t cry, right? When…

Contemplations of the Night

I sat up all night contemplating the calling of God on my life. I think that I am blessed of God just to be elected into salvation, a calling I do not deserve. I know that all of the good I’ve done in my life doesn’t really stack up to a hill of beans before…

The Paths Around Me

A Christian Spiritual poem concerning walking in darkness and being rescued by Christ’s call and faith.

Sometimes …

Sometimes … I make the mistake of wishing for more money, a better car, really, a better life. But, what is wrong with the life I now live? What is wrong with what I have already been blessed with? Am I out sleeping under that canopy of clouds and rain coming down out there? I…

Thunder on Sunday!

It’s 12:03 AM. Often, I find the deep night soothing and relaxing. It’s a special time for a lot of us because our mind and body is relaxed and it being early Sunday morning, many of us do not have to get up and fight morning rushes just to go to a job that pimps…

It Is Finished!

So It Has Come To This??

So the world has come to this?!?! If I may rant and still grab your attention doing so, let me explain the happenings of the week. On Wednesday at approximately 10 PM, my vehicle was stolen in Bluefield V.A. which is about 15 miles from where I live. I was asked to go into McDonald’s…

The Seasons of our Lives

Spring will soon be upon us. This is the time that everything comes back to life, that which was seemingly killed by winter. The time when the fresh smell of cut grass will be filling our lungs, the sound of lawn mowers filling our ears, and the eyes filled with children on every playground, everywhere….

Cloud Number Nine

I feel absolutely great today. For some reason (secretly, I know the reason) I am on cloud nine. The Lord has blessed me in the most beautiful way. For a long time I have been searching and praying for this to happen to me as it has to a lot of God’s people and now…

The Way to Heaven

Time goes by so fast! One day we’re young and we we’re the recipients of birthday parties, Christmas gifts, and Easter egg hunts and the next day we are old, giving our kids the very same things. If yesterday we were young and today we are old, what does tomorrow have in store us? My…

Ten Reasons I Love God

God is so great to me! The thought of who He is puts me in a peaceful awe, almost as if my jaw is dropped but I still have a smile on my face. Very rarely do I get mental pictures of Him that are biblically accurate. I imagine I’m not the only one with…

The Gospel According to Jane

So I heard it said the other day, that God figures … that He made a mistake when He created human beings of whom also He gave freewill, which is another mistake made by Him. I quietly listened to the lady that said this give her account of what she thought God did and what…
