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…

Two Absolutes God Wants Us to Know

Our body is the greatest testimony of our humanity, our weakness, our finiteness, the fact that we both have a beginning and an end. Our body and the way our skin ages, how fast our organs start to fail and how quickly our bones become brittle are tell tale signs that inevitably, we will expire….

It Is Finished!

I often remember the life of Jesus Christ. How the crowds adored Him when He first came on to the scene of Judea as a new mouth for the Jewish God. Everywhere He went, there were people lined up wanting a Word or a healing. The crowds would actually push upon Him like He was…

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 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…

4 Questions For the Experienced Christian Blogger

When I first thought of writing a Christian blog, I did not expect that in three months of writing what I think were decent articles, self-helps, sermons, etc, that I would have only 57 followers. I certainly hoped that my blog would prosper way beyond what it has. Well, not only did I hope, I…
