It’s time. Another headline. Another tragedy…this time bigger than the last. Massacre. Death. Insanity. The world gone crazy. The world gone mental. The world…gone. Here’s where the solutions we must create meet their destiny. But we can’t go about answering our questions with solutions we never get around to. Legislation isn’t the answer. Writing better songs won’t fix this. Thinking about change won’t ever change anything. The answer lies in old wisdom. Ancient truth for a new day. Past solutions for present problems. The deeper rooted issue lies in the refusal we have to own up to our own humanity and our own brokenness.Read More →

Today I want to talk about how following Jesus will take you into places where there is light. Yesterday I focused on the reality that following Jesus will take us into dark places, and this is very true. But there are also places where Jesus takes you where rest can be found from the fight.

“A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies.” Proverbs 31:10 For 20 years now, my life has been spent journeying with the same woman, two souls intertwined in life, love, sorrow, grief, joy, and family.

I didn’t feel like fasting this month. A friend of mine, whose wife is also gone this weekend with my wife on their ladies weekend, mentioned that he isRead More →
Aside from your own life experiences, there is another element that you have likely had to deal with in your life. That element lies within the realm of religious or spiritual experience.

Even God doesn’t forget our sins…He chooses to remember them no more. (Hebrews 8:12) Forgetting what has happened to you doesn’t fix the bitterness that you still hold inside.
