Darkness Reveals What Light Often Blocks Out

Most believers love the light. We desire to walk in the light of truth, reflect the light of Jesus, and share the Gospel’s light with those trapped in the darkness of their sin. We love the light, and so we should. By contrast, most of us do not really like the dark times. The hard […]



Are We Confused? 1

I’m not referring to what to eat, the answer to a trivia question, or how use our smart phone, but about what the Scriptures clearly state. It seems like almost every day I hear someone say, or perhaps boldly writes it on a social media outlet, “I am under grace!.” I couldn’t agree more! We […]

Heart Words

Our bodies are an amazing creation. The way we were designed to function boggles the mind.

All age groups spend about 42.1 minutes per day on Facebook, […]

From the time we are old enough to understand our native language, people were telling us to listen. Every parent tells their child to not run with scissors, play with knives, get too close to the fire, quit hitting your brother or sister, and no, we are not there yet. As we age, we enter […]

True, but not the Whole Truth

  As I peruse the social media world, it is interesting how often the discussion regarding Christian modesty arises. Whenever someone brings up summer attire, or the lack thereof, or even dares to venture into the discussion of modesty, (or as I like to say, the minefield) there are typically two, true sentences uttered: “The […]
