Writing Regularly

In: Me, Worship

So, my first resolution is about writing. Writing regularly has always been a difficult thing for me. I’ve struggled with it a lot over the years and I’ve spent quite a bit of time pondering why. I always felt like this was somehow a testament to the fact that I’m not a writer; because, as […]

God’s Sovereignty in Daily Life

In: Me, Worship

Or… How My Daily Life Reveals Unbelief Regarding God’s Sovereignty I was pondering a “What if” question today regarding certain decisions I had made and found myself with some regret about days gone by and things I’d decided to do. Then a thought occurred to me: if God is sovereign, then why am I worried […]

The Search for Happiness

In: Family, Friends, Me, Soma, Worship

Life is toil. Ecclesiastes tells us this clearly. Life under the sun is filled with work and trial; however, those of us who call upon the name of Jesus are promised hope and joy in the midst of this toil. Why then does it seem most days that we allow the toil to take its […]

The Ephesians Project

In: Family, Me, Worship

As I’ve gone from devotional to devotional and read guide after guide regarding individual worship as well as trying to find good resources for family worship – I have never been able to find what I was looking for. So, I’ve now decided to make it myself. My goal is simple – I’m going to […]

Twitter in Community

In: Culture, Friends, Soma, Worship

I’ve been using Twitter for a year or so now. When I first joined up, it was in the middle of the throes of people who “got it” by using it primarily as a push mechanism and those who were n00bs because they were still using it to tell people where they were instead of […]

The Gravity of the Status Quo

In: Me, Worship

On Friday night, in the midst of the passion of WorshipGod09, I hit a spiritual high. A place where the Gospel was never more clear and Christ’s unparalleled love was more real to me than ever… which, of course, led to an emotional high (naturally). But when I awoke on Saturday morning (the last session […]

Fleeing arrogance to find… more arrogance

In: Me, Worship

So, Veritas Fellowship has been partnering with Soli Deo Gloria for about 9 months now. We actually attend Sunday morning services at Soli Deo Gloria on 4th and Pedernales. I lead the music and occasionally preach (I actually preach this coming Sunday on , The Parable of the Ten Minas). I’ve enjoyed the experience so […]

Me… unBoxed, part one

In: Me, Worship

Until now, my (intended) audience has been centered on people who have shared much of my experiences with life and faith. If you’ve read my blog, you’ll note that I have felt challenged to expand my horizons and destroy my preconceptions. Through this process, I have ventured out into territories completely foreign to me and […]

Polemic on Christian Politics

In: Culture, Issues, Worship

I hesitate to write this article for a variety of reasons: The likelihood of offending brothers and sisters in Christ is great (though I do not wish to do so) My views are contrary to the norm and may be used as fodder by enemies of the Cross to prove points I do not support […]

Another infection that rears its ugly head in American Christendom is our tendency to define our faith by what we don’t do rather than what we do. “I don’t drink, I don’t chew, I don’t go out with girls who do.” I know, I know – this is an old saw and we’ve improved over […]

Hopefully, you see in these writings a man who is staying The Course and pursuing The Path amidst the pitfalls and selfish ways of being a son of Adam. I pray earnestly that my writing would encourage some of you by showing you that this journey - though arduous and sometimes tragic - is a journey of great satisfaction. A satisfaction greater than our greatest imaginings. The trials and refining fire of tribulation are to be recognized as a small shadow of the suffering of our Savior so that we can rejoice, as Peter and the disciples did, to be counted worthy to suffer for the sake of the Name.
