A God of Second Chances

By Chris Bunton I hear some Christians say this a lot. “God is a God of second chances.”  Every time I hear it, it is like a punch in the face; because I need a God of infinite chances. And so do they, despite what they might believe.           They seem to often believe thatContinue reading “A God of Second Chances”

A Lesson in Giving

By Chris Bunton I was in prison. Most stories end that way, but not this one. It was actually the beginning of my life. A new life. A new start. In prison we can go to the commissary and buy things. When I say “go to the commissary, I mean we can stand in lineContinue reading “A Lesson in Giving”

We Don’t Trust Them

By Chris Bunton We don’t trust them.Those giants who rule the Earth;those fallen ones who stole our dominion. We don’t trust them.Those royal descendants of “gods”;those of the divine blood line. Why should we trust them?They live in castles even today,while we still cower in caves. Why should we trust them?From days of old,we dieContinue reading “We Don’t Trust Them”

I Die Daily

By Chris Bunton There’s a verse in the Scriptures which says, “I die daily”. It is a small quote, within the context of a larger concept, but it’s a powerful tool for life improvement and spiritual growth. We often wake up in the middle of the night, or in the morning, full of anxiety. OurContinue reading “I Die Daily”

They got mad, when you beat him, with that red fire truck. They said you were bad, and needed a long time out. Everyone made a bigContinue reading “Church Nursery”

Am I Better?

By Chris Bunton Over the years I have wondered. “Am I a better human being than I was before? or am I just sober?” Are we really better? or are we just trying to avoid trouble, keep from hurting our family, stay out of prison, or make more money? Are we better human beings? ThisContinue reading “Am I Better?”

By Chris Bunton I have read tons of self help books and articles over the years. I have watched videos and listened to books on tape from all the biggest names in every self-help category. I have taken the good and tossed the bad. I have practiced it all. And I believe I have improved myself through itContinue reading “Self-Improvement vs. Life Improvement”

Good Boy

He ran into the vets office.A Good Boy with cancer.He tripped twice, bumping a wall,and peed for the last time. What did he think as heContinue reading “Good Boy”

Inspire Others

By Chris Bunton I came from a place of rock bottom. Where the Lord has lifted me up, cleaned me off and is working in my life. That is a fact. But, I get discouraged. I want to help others, but it seems as though I don’t. It seems as though I’m a waste orContinue reading “Inspire Others”
