Prudes

I’m a Christian. But, I get so irritated with some of the stuff I see Christians pushing. For example, I just saw a Christian friend post a meme with a Bible verse about how in the last days perilous times shall come. “Men shall be lovers of their own selves”…, the verse says. The memeContinue reading “Prudes”

7 Demons

As addicts, we have experienced many of the same things in our lives. We have slept in similar ditches, woken up in the wrong beds, got caught up with the wrong people, and done a million things we cannot remember, no matter how hard we try.             But, one of the things thatContinue reading “7 Demons”

Our First Love

I see folks on Facebook talking about praying to God to heal the land, and to stop the evil in the land, and to drive away pestilence and all of that. I’ve heard it for years. How exactly do you think God will do this? Are you really ready for it? Maybe the problem isn’tContinue reading “Our First Love”

You Go With You

Here’s a lesson I learned while my life was falling apart. I had been abandoned after driving my family away. I drank and drank and partied and fought. I was arrested time and time again, and that’s who I was.             I had been drinking and decided to go to the bowlingContinue reading “You Go With You”

Jailhouse Religion

When I was locked up, I first heard this term. It was used to refer to someone who turns to God only when they are in the jailhouse. I’ve heard high class people use this term and I’ve heard inmates use it to slam other inmates. They would say things like, “Man, you only wantContinue reading “Jailhouse Religion”

God Takes Care of Us

God Takes Care of Us God has protected and taken care of me in so many ways in my life. I could write a book telling of all the things. Not only has He provided, but He has assured me of the promise of His provision. Often times, when I have encountered trouble in myContinue reading “God Takes Care of Us”

Release

I was in the arctic.Those frozen forests of Alaska.North of Fairbanks,in the wild Yukon. It was night,and the moon shown,on the white, bright snow.Everything had a light, blue glow. It was cold,minus 60 degrees,and I prayed to God,for a sign to go. I needed a change.A new life, away.And a way to go. A wayContinue reading “Release”

Abundant Life

“I am the door; by me if any man, enter in he shall be saved, and shall go in and out and find pasture.  The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” —JohnContinue reading “Abundant Life”

Prison Church

I was in an isolation cell;when I realized God put me there.He sat me down to speak.He shook me awake. I began to live again.Everything was ok, again.I felt Him there, again.I knew who I was, again. I went to those prison churches.Those gatherings of criminals, like me.Those broken, hurting men like me.Those sons, husbands,Continue reading “Prison Church”
