A Man Did Time For Me

Prison life has always fascinated me.  It’s another world inside those walls behind the fence.  I’ve watched numerous prison movies and documentaries.  The whole concept of survival in a place like that is interesting to me.  I once had a friend who spent eighteen years of his life behind bars.  His stories intrigued me as

Eve: A Novel (book review)

As I read my Bible I often have wondered what it would have been like to have been there observing the story as it unfolds — to have seen Moses part the Red Sea, to have seen Elijah on Mt. Carmel opposite the prophets of Baal, to have seen the crucifixion. For me it’s always

Are You Being You?

Be yourself!  That’s something that we’ve heard all of our lives.  Yet, so many people, myself included, do not really live as themselves.  We live in such a competitive society where we are always comparing ourselves with others, which tends to cause us to not be comfortable with who we really are. I am not

The Illusion of Control

Control.  Everyone wants to have it over their lives.  We would like to believe that we are in control of our lives.  When we are young we feel invincible.  We feel that we can overcome anything.  We feel that we are immortal.  As we grow older we realize that we are not invincible, immortal or

Why Do We Disgrace Others?

There are not many issues in life that are harder to face than having a spouse or boyfriend/girlfriend cheat on you.  It is a devastating event that wreaks havoc with your emotions and mind. To have that trust betrayed by the closest person to you is one of the most distressing things a person can

Abundant Grace

Sometimes we have bought into the lie that says that God is holding back and that God is stingy.  God is not stingy.  God isn’t holding back from his children.   God told Adam and Eve not to eat from one tree in the Garden of Eden.  We seem to focus all of our attention

The God Who Gets His Hands Dirty

True Christianity is not clean, tidy and sanitized.  There are many within the church that would like folks to believe it’s that way.  They come up with nice, neat answers to life’s complex problems.  They have developed cute slogans to help with challenging issues.  Everything fits into a nice, neat faith package. But life doesn’t
