Weary Spirit, Condemned Soul.
Time and time again, It amazes me how paralyzed my body and mind will become. I am a slave to depressing dreams of false hope. Then I wake up in the morning and refuse to face the day. I don’t want to have contact with people, I don’t want to be a functioning member of society, and I want to spend infinity in ignorant sleep. I know the Truth and I know my duties. I know the war we...

비겁한 자식들…이 죽일 놈들… 도대체 생각이 잇는건지 없는건지… 정신없시 살면서 무엇을 얻나? 하늘에 계신 아버지, 범죄 피해자들을 축복하소서…
“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God;” (Philippians 4:6) Philippians 4:6 tells us, “Be anxious for nothing.” In other words, we are commanded, “Don’t worry about anything,” another of God’s absolutes. To have fear, worry, anxiety, or forebodings question...

Prime Minister John Key of New Zealand declared the above statement. It breaks my heart to say this, but darkest days are yet to come. Things are going to become much more difficult to handle, digest, and even witness, but they are only going to be the catalyst for Jesus’ Coming!!!
Bigger and Mightier than Existence
In the midst of all happenings in this world, whether they be massive earthquakes, accidents, manslaughter, I know that You STAND firm. I believe that your Beloved children are with You in complete safety and that your plans are beyond our human knowledge and comprehension. I pray for those who are in despair, those who need You the MOST. Jesus, please help us to be prepared for Your Return.
Bump on a Log, Dead in the Water
2 Corinthians 5:10: (10) For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive the things done in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad. Teachers who say that works are unimportant are spreading lies—by confusing the issues, by blunting the incentive to keep the commandments of God and to make the right kind of choices, by making people think...
Grace + Truth
I preface this post with the hope that you will not feel condemned or rebuked but that you, as Believers will truly understand the dangers of simply relying on God’s Grace. “You, my brothers, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the sinful nature.” (Galations 5:13) “He who ignores discipline comes to poverty and shame, but whoever heeds...
The Perfection and Character of God
Exodus 34:5-8 (5) Now the LORD descended in the cloud and stood with him there, and proclaimed the name of the LORD. (6) And the LORD passed before him and proclaimed, “The LORD, the LORD God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abounding in goodness and truth, (7) keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, by no means clearing the guilty, visiting the...
The nesting place.
Once again, fear of inadequacy and disappointment in the self have found their homes within me. Lord, will you cast out the negativity and bring light into the darkness?
Beauty found In His Existence
God, You have only given me a slight taste of experiencing Joy by being in a Relationship with You…and if this small taste is already overwhelmingly delightful, how much more wonderful will it be when you shower me with such an undeserved treat?

90% with God is better than 100% with ourselves.– John MacArthur
“And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.” Let us not take out verses from the Word out of context in attempts to manipulate their true meanings so that they would benefit ourselves.
By definition, we worship what we choose to give the supreme devotion of our...– “Why Worship God?” John W. Ritenbaug
Beginning to realize the ugliness of the nature of self-sufficiency.
You stand in the uncertainty of it all.
Not a game of "Pick and Choose"
The more I learn about God and what He made possible for man, the more reinforced is the fact that Christianity is not available for anyone who simply wants to become “a better person” or to feel better about him/herself. If that is the case, you are deeply mistaken and will be extremely disappointed. The truth of the matter is, the Christian life is not about you or the self. In...

The Anchor and Lighthouse
I could ask the question, “what is ‘wrong’ with me?” but the human answer to that comes too easily. Years ago, I came to the realization that this disorder within my spirit and soul was going to last a good period of time - perhaps a lifetime, but that during its episodes of calamity, You would be the alleviation. During such times of tribulation, I had the options of...
