Grace

I never understood what grace was until now; and I've been going to church for 11 years. I was a bad person before I was saved. I know that we all think that, but when I share my testimony the usual reaction is shock and rejection. On occassions I had been removed from leadership and... Continue Reading →

Mirrors

'You know, I looked at my face in the mirror this morning, and I like being old. My face has more content and when I train in the gym now, I am not training to be strong or handsome - just better than I was yesterday. These days the race is just against myself.' Jean-Claude... Continue Reading →

To Heal What I let Go

I keep begging for my heart to beat again. But maybe God's teaching me a lesson in the middle of this pain. I feel the thoughts coming like a wave Ruining my head and ruining the day. What would it take to set a light and watch The flames consume it all and freedom starts... Continue Reading →

Imitating Intimacy

Often other guys ask what's wrong with me. They mistake me as being homosexual because I treat women differently. I don't "check out" random women who are pretty. I don't complain about my wife. I look at women entirely differently. In fact, and it's sad to say, differently than even other Christian men. All of... Continue Reading →

Coming to the Father

'Let us then approach God's throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.' Hebrews 4:6 NIV One thing that often gets in the way of us coming to the father is shame. When the devil makes anyone feel like they're a... Continue Reading →

Love and Other Things

What most of us want more than anything else is to be loved. From the time we are born until we are old it's the one thing that we crave. We can have a relationship with God and feel fulfilled but still feel lonely, because we're created to be around people, to socialise. Our spirits... Continue Reading →

Encouraging Others

Encouragement isn't just making people happy. Encouragement is putting courage into people. But how do you put courage into a person? You show them hope. Hope is one of the greatest tools to pull people out of their darkest depths. While we can't physically lift people out of their troubles, what we can do is... Continue Reading →

My Superpower

When I was little I thought I had a superpower. I could sense when things were going to go wrong, or something bad was about to happen. My success ratio was flawless. I thought I could see the future. I kept this knowledge to myself, because I knew, even at a young age, that I... Continue Reading →

Moonless Night

Darkness, she is my lover; my horrid friend. She comes to me when I'm alone and wraps me in her cold embrace. She cries with me; but it's all just a mirror. Her lips well as she presses them against mine. Ice pierces my soul as I lay in her satin sheets. Something within me... Continue Reading →

Loved

In high school there was something that really bothered me a lot, it was the concept of love and why some people would reply 'you must be blind' when you told them 'you're beautiful'; but I soon realised that half our insecurites weren't our truth, it was a truth people had built for us. It's... Continue Reading →
