Peace is Here!



“And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.”


I need renewal.

A greater forgiveness for words I can’t have back and the anger better left unexpressed.

Be it the last thing I ever write, may it be to His glory and the greater good of my fellow man.

Life is not a game. There are no ‘winners’ or ‘losers.’ Our performance is not based on our  ability, but rather our Substitute!

I need a continual hearing of the Gospel Message now more than ever.


We are in this together.

There are few who haven’t been kicked around some. Maybe you’ve done the kicking. We all need mercy and forgiveness. We all need deliverance.

We have trials to endure and scars to bear. Jesus knows are sufferings and our mistakes. He knows our pain and afflictions. He will carry them.

The ‘broken-you’ cannot hold a candle to the ‘redeemed-you.’ To the ‘glorified-you’ the trauma endured in this life is not a trifle - it’s a greater praise!

Share the Gospel.

Be charitable and gracious. Don’t hold back. It’s what the world needs now more than ever.

Love your neighbor and shoot to kill!

“For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.”


I notice skeptics try to lump all religions as equally fictitious. Christianity (and its Jewish roots) is far and away the major challenge for the godless. No man would or could conceive of this faith.

In fact, if you wrote a book on how to make a religious movement unacceptable and wholly objectionable (for the day in which it was written) Christianity would be the blueprint! Same for Old Testament Judaism. The Jews were always screwing up and forsaking God. Is this the God conceived by man OR the God that merely IS…..?
