Battlefield

A battle takes place every single day Not in other countries, Not far away This battle consumes and destroys One captain is happy and over joyed He thinks he has won But the fight is far from over Because I trust the Son. The battle is inside of us all Old, Young, Short and Tall […]

Sovereignty

There is no question. Somehow, all of us know this to be truth; whether we declare it with our words or if we hold it deep within ourselves, reluctant to give voice to the actuality we’re afraid to admit. All of us know; we were born to know. God is sovereign. Many people deceive themselves, […]

Confident like a Brat and Humble like a Servant

My wife, Kylie, and I were having a conversation just the other day about worrying. We are looking into buying a house and there are so many things that have to be done.  My wife got extremely stressed out. Later, she said that the one thing that was keeping her from continuing to be stressed […]

The Journey

  I started along my desolate path, Wishing there was a shorter way to take, The trail ahead seemed so dull and forlorn, There was a dismal sensation I just couldn’t shake.   For so many miles I walked alone, I trudged along till the pain I couldn’t bear, With gasping breaths I collapsed to […]

A Marine for God

I live in a world where my God isn’t looked at like the way that you or I view Him. More than anything, he is looked at like a complete joke. Every day I hear the Lord’s name taken in vain well over a hundred times followed by large amounts of profanity. In this world […]

Take a Break

I will admit there are quite a few changes taking place in my life right now. Whether it’s school, work, or relationships; it seems like multiple changes often occur at once. It can be overwhelming. And let me tell you, I am the first person to feel overwhelmed. That’s the problem though, I don’t have […]

The Cross

The cross is a symbol everyone knows Shown to us a long time ago For most it really means nothing But to me, it means everything Jesus came from up above No sin, white as a dove He walked with us He talked with us He performed miracles never seen before Yet, we crucified him […]

The Explicit Gospel

Rick Warren is right when he says, “If you read only one book this year, make it this one. It’s that important.” This book blew me away, not because it repainted the Christian faith or brought something new to the table, but because Matt Chandler is relentless with the Gospel. Everything is about the Gospel. […]
