  1. First attempt at blogging, 1-7-09

    I like this NLT version of 1 Cor. 10:23. I just understand it better, but Skip has used another version of the bible on this one(the KJV which I beleive is most accurate to the original writings. Jesus didn't come to do away with the law given to Moses. He came to fulfill it because God knew humans didn't stand a snow-balls chance on their own. Now, when we sin, God doesn't see that sin, He sees us through Jesus, Jesus already payed for every sin. Some of the world thinks that being saved would ...
  2. The Prophet

    The Prophet
    I saw an old man walking
    His head was bowed and gray,
    His staff held by a gnarled old hand
    And then I heard him pray:

    "Oh Lord, please do forgive our sins
    Though they're as black as coal;
    You are a God of mercy,
    Who cares about each soul.

    We are full of deceit and wayward;
    Unfaithful and untrue -
  3. Battle plans

    We all know that we are in a spiritual battle - Eph 6 tells us as much, and describes the armour of God in some detail.

    It's interesting to note that we have several pieces of armour, but only one weapon. That weapon, of course, is the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God. This is indeed a mighty weapon, as we see in Hebrews:

    I want this to be my message for tonight: I've been overwhelmed by our beautiful God. Even though the end of 2008 was a sad struggle for me as I said goodbye to an engagement that wasn't meant to be.... the whole entire time, God was pulling me closer. He reminded me of the many, many blessings I have: a wonderful family, sweet friends, and even the blessing of a new half-brother I'm just getting to know now!

    The Lord is my strength and my song. Truly. I can honestly say that despite ...
  5. Voices

    From the ashes of time I can hear hollow laughter,
    Calling me, calling me, to the hereafter.
    Forgotten voices and vile lying tongues,
    Who penned morals tainted by God's fallen sons.

    Empty it rings in the stillness of night,
    Whilst soft blackened velvet helps shadow the Light.
    Curling, unfurling, gray fingers of vice,
    Destroying my life
