I love watching the Olympics. 206 nations come together in a series of games to compete for the bronze, silver, and gold while trying to set some world records. There’s nothing quite like it. I suppose, a few millennia ago, the only thing that would cause such a convergence of countries would be plagues, violence,Continue reading “Going for Gold”
Are you at a point in your life where you feel forgotten, abandoned, or alone? Do you feel hopeless to the point where you can’t find the light in life again? Do you feel incapable of crawling your way out? There is an answer to this sorrow, it might not be an easy answer, butContinue reading “In Dreams”
Have you ever been blamed for something you didn’t do? Or worse – something you deliberately didn’t do and goes against your entire character? Have you ever been pushed or kicked out of a job because someone lied about you? Have you ever gotten the short end of the stick in a situation where youContinue reading “Framed”
One of my favorite Bible characters is Joseph. Not only was he a guy who was good at overcoming obstacles thrown his way; his life is like a modern-day soap opera. If you haven’t heard of him, he was the “favorite” son of Jacob, the son of Isaac who was the son of the patriarchContinue reading “Lemonade from Lemons”
If God is good, why is there suffering and pain in the world? Not to intentionally nose-dive deep into theological philosophies, but I believe there’s a balance between God’s sovereignty and the free will he has given to mankind. Does God give mankind the freedom to choose their eternal destinies? Yes. But at the sameContinue reading “If God is Good”
In the past year, it seems like the world has become more polarized with itself. Even within families, differences have spread into insurmountable gaps that seem impossible to cross. Whether it’s discourse over the COVID-vaccine, the 2020 political election, the attack of the Capital, racial justice, climate change, or any other number of “hot topics”, it seemsContinue reading “To a Politically-Torn World”
It’s difficult to be honest. Whether it’s honest with ourselves or with other people, it involves opening our eyes and taking a good hard look to invoke positive change. Because when we refuse to see, or when we are in denial, that’s when we become stuck, and we can’t move forward. Not everyone likes beingContinue reading “The Honest Truth”
Life is permeated with decisions. For a young person, some of these might include: Should I go to college or trade school or enlist in the military? Should I marry this person? If so, when? What do I want to do in life? Who do I want to do it with? Where do I wantContinue reading “When God Speaks”
I’ve been watching a lot of Star Wars recently. You see, I grew up loving the old movies and the prequels. I remember going to the movie theatres to see Revenge of the Sith; it was the first movie I watched with a PG-13 rating. There are so many intense themes that reverberate through theContinue reading “Our Only Hope”
The hero has sacrificed himself to save the lives of many. Now, it is time to say goodbye to a beloved son and a trusted friend. The funeral music plays, the casket is opened… And it’s empty. Whether the “hero” is Captain America, Harry Potter, Sherlock Holmes, Aslan, or Jon Snow; our modern-day TV cultureContinue reading “Epilogue”
