Grasping at Straws (Part 2)

As a Christian, a different “grasping at straws” image came to mind for me personally.

During my high school years and my early post-high school days, in many places I was well-known, respected and quite “popular,” supposing I can use that word in a homeschool world context. :)

Nathaniel Mervar was someone to know
back then.

Breaking? Nope, Broken

In 2017 I prayed a dangerous prayer…

So many of us pray for dependence upon the Lord. We pray that we would live sold-out to Him. Yet, we never consider what that might do to our lives if He actually answers that prayer.

Watching Your Dreams Burn

“Christ is indeed worth our all, yet will we live that statement?”

I penned those words back in 2017 for our film entitled
“Counting the Cost.” Little did I realize how deeply personal those words would become to me as I watch what seems to be the burning of many of my dreams.

The World is Dark

Every day, it seems that our world becomes a little darker. Another tragedy, another falling-out in a relationship, another person walking away from the Lord, more and more compromise with the truth of God’s Word, good being called evil and evil called good, when will it ever end?

Yet, is it possible I am simply starting to see more and more the seriousness of sin as I mature in my walk with the Lord?

The Valley

(This story is an allegory to the trials we as believers face in this life. My prayer for us as believers is that we will keep our eyes locked on the King, even when we are in the Valley of the Shadow of Death. As the hurt and attacks keep coming, may we press on after Him, for He is worth our all. To God alone be the glory!)

Life is Fragile

Life is short, incredibly short and very, very fragile.

I was reminded of this recently when I picked up a friend from the hospital.

Christianity - A Dying Cause

No, the title of this post is no typo. I meant what I wrote, Christianity - A Dying Cause

To be honest, there are days and even months in my life where the cause seems lost. Every day it seems our world becomes darker. It seems as if the light keeps dying and the darkness continues to fill the void the light has left.
