A Prayer

Somehow, some way, we've all felt it. We've experienced it, either directly or indirectly. We have used and successfully walked away, or we are still using. Some of us can control the substances in our lives, many of us cannot. Many have recognized their struggle and have addressed it, many more have not. Still, we... Continue Reading →

Right Answer, Wrong Prayer

When I was in college I took a beginning photography class. I had always loved photography, and even did some freelance work for friends and family.

As I looked through photographs and artwork trying to find the most appropriate image for the subject of my blog post, I found the one above and I couldn't scroll past it.

When I write these posts, I try to use a picture that would depict what I'm writing about. I want to find really good pictures to convey, as best as possible, what I was feeling during my experience with the Lord. However, this experience was so real that when I looked for pictures of spiders... Continue Reading →


Growing up I was taught how to pray. I was encouraged to pray. We prayed before meals, before bedtime, before church, before funerals. There were prayers for confession, prayers for protection, prayers to saints, and prayers for seasons. I had my own little book of prayers I could read in case I couldn't come up...

Pop Quiz

At about two o’clock one morning I woke up, and felt the need to pray in the Spirit. There are prayers to God in our own language. Then, there are prayers to God in a heavenly language (1 Corinthians 12:4-11). I told of how I received my prayer language in a previous post, I Need... Continue Reading →
