It was forbidden to be used on an “outsider” or to be used as an emollient on the body of any common persons and the children of Israel were forbidden to duplicate any like it for themselves.

Early Morning Prayer Time 

4:30 A.M has become my prayer time to be completely alone with the Lord. At first it was hard to crucify my flesh to get up, but I persisted, until now it has become enjoyable.

Keep The Main Thing The Main Thing

Focus. It is EVERYTHING. Focus leads to balance. Don’t trust me? Try walking on a balance beam, if your focus stays straight ahead you remain balanced and it’s easy going. Look down, focus on the ground or your feet and each step becomes awkward and unbalanced. Stay focused on Jesus, don’t look down, stare straight … Continue reading Keep The Main Thing The Main Thing

God The Creator : Artist of All Creation

​​ As an artist, perhaps it’s easier for me to believe in a Sovereign God. He has gifted me with the ability to see things in my mind and draw them out onto paper, wood, walls.

You can survive for 3 weeks without food - if you have … Continue reading Spiritual Survival: Air, Water, Food, Shelter

Remember God Resists The Proud 

We live in a society that encourages pride, greed and lust. There are multi billion dollar industries that do little more than feed all three in the name of "self improvement" or "self help". Should Christians exalt themselves? Is self exaltation ever warranted in the Bible? The short Biblical answer is no and no. We … Continue reading Remember God Resists The Proud 

Politics & Religion

In one of my seminary classes the professor said something along the lines that we should chose to stay away from politics because we have already chosen one controversial antagonistic perspective and choosing two would suggest we were a glutton for punishment. At the time I was offended, arguing politics had become one of my favorite past times. I enjoy the world of politics, the debates and the feeling that somehow you have the "right cause" at heart...
