I’ve been meaning to finish this book for years but quite often, I’d pick it up, get preoccupied with life and put it down. By neglecting discipline, I was doing myself a huge disservice. A life without discipline is a life without direction. Without direction, my life became empty, trivial and worrisome. I became worn…

If I am being completely honest, I have been going in circles for the vast majority of my life. It’s an embarrassing omission really; however, it is true. These days everything is happening so fast. Everyone is moving so fast. The thing about moving at such a momentum at all times while simultaneously going in…

I started writing a little over a year ago. About six months into it, I began to feel I was headed in the wrong direction. So, I stopped writing. Instead I read the entire Holy Bible cover-to-cover.I grew up in the church and I read a lot of the scriptures and many of the books…

Proof

In a discussion, my good friend says to me: “If only God performed miracles as He did in the scriptures then people would believe.” I nearly fell out of my chair after hearing such a remark. I went on to prove that Jesus, in fact, is STILL in the miracle performing business. I found myself…

Someone saying that he or she does not believe in God is like a fly buzzing around me while chanting: “I don’t believe in you.” It’s laughable because I could squat such a silly little fly with absolutely no effort at all. When I speak of belief concerning God it’s not a matter of Him…
