A good Father

www.bible.com/bible/59/psa.103.13.esv Father, the word itself invokes different images and emotions for different people. Indeed the same person could have a different response depending upon where they are in life. As a child I knew my father loved me. There were times I’m sure he thought I was weird due to my love of Star Trek […]

Shelter

The Lord is good, a stronghold in the day of trouble; he knows those who take refuge in him. Nahum 1:7 ESV Today’s verse comes from a small book in the Old Testament, one of the Minor Prophets and if I’m being completely honest I’d never heard of it until today. This speaks more about my need […]

Truth with grace

www.bible.com/59/col.4.6.esv I don’t want to think about the number of times I’ve been more focused on being right than speaking with grace. I recently have been on a kick of watching and listening to certain types of broadcasts. Specifically I’ve been consuming a lot of Apologetic debates. There are several Apologists that I like and […]

Battleground

www.bible.com/59/2co.10.5.esv Battles are often won and lost in the mind, long before the first pull of a trigger or drawing of the sword. That’s why we see bad actors from foreign states making things worse by misinformation and division in Social Media platforms like Facebook and Twitter. This past week I had a very hard […]

Remember

www.bible.com/59/psa.34.8.esv I found myself in a very dark place yesterday. Somewhere that I’ve not been for years. It came out of nowhere like a Mack truck to my day. I tried to call out to people but either I talked myself out of it or I assumed they were too busy. I found myself reading […]
