Bringing Hope Through Music

Speaking Into The Darkness

This past several months have been hard for me, but not for anything in my personal life or my family, but because of those around me. I’ve called it my “season of sorrow”. I’ve watched many people make decisions that divide families, continue justifying their actions and sorrow continues to win the day. I’ve been…

Are We Stuck Up Missionaries?

  For those of us doing full time ministry, it’s difficult, yet incredibly rewarding. The best thing about ministry is the people. The worst thing about ministry is…the people. But people are the currency of heaven and the people make up the church, the bridegroom of Christ, and for better or for worse, their value…

Are Men Too Proud To Worship?

I stand on stage looking out at hundreds & hundreds of people looking back at me every week. I see smiles, frowns, coffee sippers, fidgeters, yawners, jumpers, shouters; people dancing, clapping, sitting, bowing, jazzercising. I see it all. People have no idea what we actually pay attention to. Sometimes we get choked up watching someone really…

Fire Breather

We have so much power it’s frightening. We have the ability to destroy human lives, minds, even countries without even physically touching them. In the same manner, we can also cure lives, replenish souls, even rebuild nations without lifting a finger. We hold more power, more life, and more venom than we should be able…

You Shouldn’t Read This

We all wish we could go back in time. There have been songs written about it, we talk about it in our conversations, we all have regrets and reminiscence. I will always remember my college days. It was a great time of fun, freedom, pranks, and friends, but it’s a scenario that will never again…

Your Facebook Is Causing Me To Stumble

Social Media is a pornographer. It’s an adulterer. It’s a slanderer. And it could be starring you. Yes, I’m talking to you. Maybe you’ve wrecked a few homes, ruined a few relationships… maybe some of your pictures have found their way into someone else’s bedroom. Yes, I’m still talking to you. Maybe you’ve been married,…

The Noose Is Tightening

Recently, our country and the world has been rocked by the news of children in Iraq being beheaded and placed in public as trophies and warnings for Christians who refuse to convert to Islam. There have been conflicting reports on whether this is accurate. CNN reports one thing and the Gospel Coalition another. What is…

Forced Entry

I’m so tired of things not working out. When are things going to FINALLY start turning around for me? I’ve been more active than Jamie Lee Curtis’ digestive system, yet it always seems to blow up in my face. (no pun intended) I’ve even prayed about a lot of what I want, but it’s like…

It’s Dangerous To Dream

We’ve been given tons of motivational mottos. “Don’t ever give up on your dreams.” “Don’t let anyone ever tell you can’t do something.” “Shoot for the stars!” “Follow your dreams, they know the way.” They are all encouraging, intended to make us not give up, and hopefully achieve said dreams. But the epidemic that is…

Generational Decay: The Deterioration Of Our Children

12 year olds are getting pregnant. 5 year olds are cursing like sailors. Kids are killing each other with assorted weapons. 13 year olds are leaving suicide notes on Facebook and their peers think it’s no big deal, leaving jokes in the comments. I’ve even heard of a scenario where a crowd watched a man…
