Poor Mirrors

I’ve seen those eyes thousands of times before. There are times when they have looked straight through me, refusing to see the real me, and there are times when they have seen the real me, but it’s not what I wish they would have seen. Those eyes are my eyes; me reflection look back at…

A Prayer in the Dark

Oh, how this world needs You, Jesus! There are so many hearts that writhe in darkness. They are enslaved to sin, and it destroys them as well as those they come in contact with. They appear to be alive, and even normal, but You see that they have given up in the war for their…

Sin is not the Answer

I don’t have all the answers and there are a lot of things I am not too sure about, but I know a few things. I know that God knew I would struggle with certain sins before I even had the opportunity to think one evil thought. He knew, because He is God. I also…

When You Want to Give Up

Unplugged and Present

What if we took the time to ask, listen, and be present, without feeling the need to rush off to something or someone else? We live in a world of immediate gratification: next-day shipping, fast food, lightning internet, the fast lane… If we buy something that is built to improve our lives, it most often…

She was Ready

For most people, the thought, “Today, is the day I’m going to die,” never crosses their mind. They wake up, do their job, go to school, or do whatever their routine is, and then they go to sleep, and repeat. Even if someone plans to take their own life on a certain day, or they…

What Makes You so Special?

But now, thus says Yahweh, Who created you, Jacob, and He Who formed you, Israel: “Don’t be afraid, for I have redeemed you. I have called you by name. You are Mine. “When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they will not overflow you. When you walk…
