I know this may sound a little off color, but bear with me on this one. I have been wrestling with this one for a bit now, and still have more wrestling to do. So many times we hear someone say, "Jesus is All I need," or "Jesus is more than enough for me." Have you or I ever stopped to consider the meaning of this statement? I have and I have come to this conclusion, Jesus is NOT all I need and He is NOT more than enough for me! Sounds sacrilegious doesn't it? But I really be
For the past two weeks, my family has attended church services for the first time in 8 years. My two young boys have not even known what a church service looked like as they had never really been other than a time or two on Father's day to see their grandfather who is a preacher. For 31 years I was born, raised, and lived in church. I was the guy there every time the doors opened, until God literally yanked me out for his purposes. So the past two weeks have been interesting

As we were talking he mentioned some days are okay, however, most days he can hear Satan screaming in his ear about how he messed up and how unworthy he is
I will be honest, this post will have the potential to become soap boyish if I am not careful! But it is really hard when you see so much pain and hurt not to call out the reason why!
In the past 8 months, I have dealt with 5 different phone calls of friends and fellow believers who have called to confess either having an affair or being the victim of one. The first one, I really just stood back and wondered what was God doing? Then the phone calls starting piling up and my
Have you ever stopped to think about the reality that one day we will have to choose between the country we love and Our Savior?
Have you ever considered the passage in Isaiah 6 where God asked a simple question, "Whom Shall I send, and Who will go for us?"
I will have to admit, this passage has much bearing on my life since I was 14. How can a young man ever forget the day that God asked him this question, only to see him do his best Jonah impression and attempt to run l
