Everybody Sleeps

Years ago, it feels like forever now, I wasn't the kind person I am now. I was quite opposite. I did unsavoury things for unsavoury people, and I had a reputation of being very self destructive and for being afraid of no one. People would ask me how I could possibly be so unafraid despite...

New Growth

Growth is easy to see in the beginning. The seedling sprouts overnight, a new leaf appears throughout the day. The growth is easily measured by eye, as a couple of centimetres is gained almost daily. It continues. It keeps growing. But as the plant gets larger, new growth becomes harder to spot. The plant is... Continue Reading →

Cornerstone

‘Now therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone, in whom the whole building, being fitted together, grows into a holy temple in the...

A hole in the head

We often hear about biblical heroes doing amazing deeds. Performing miracles, saving nations, changing the hearts of kings. However there's one story that sticks out to me more than any other.

We've been looking at how people's gifts (aptitudes/personalities) are comparable to parts of the body and how we all... Continue Reading →

Vines

In school, we were often given an image to serve as inspiration for a creative writing piece.   Usually the only restraints would be a word goal, or page length.   I used to love these tasks.   One time when I was twelve, my teacher handed out this image of a woman who was... 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 →
