Grasping at Straws (Part 1)

There is an old expression, “grasping at straws” that I have come to a greater appreciation of this past week.
As a refresher to those of us who haven’t heard this expression in a while, I went ahead and pulled out its definition.

This is Why We Fight

There are times in my life where I despair. Times where I wonder why in the world I am doing what I am doing. For truly, the Christian life is grueling and draining.

God is Stronger

Is there any hope for the human race? This is a question that has been plaguing me as of late. One only has to be in the world for a few moments to realize how human beings are so sinful, depraved, twisted, evil and selfish.

A Love Like No Other

It is Valentine’s Day.

The Greatest Day of My Life!

Yes, I’m only 19 and I’ve already had the greatest day of my life!

No, it didn’t involve money, a trip, a human relationship or some new gadget or toy.

Go, That Simple, That Hard

Go. It is the last and final command of our Savior and Lord to His disciples while He was on this earth.

Chances are, we are all extremely familiar with this command. Therein lies the problem. One of the most dangerous things that can happen to a believer is this word called “familiarity.” We hear something so often and so regularly that we become immune, in a way, to this or that glorious truth or in this case, a command of Christ.
