MEN OF (NOT-SO-GREAT) FAITH

Hebrews 11 “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” “The fundamental fact of existence is that this trust in God, this faith, is the firm foundation under everything that makes life worth living.

Moving On From Deep Pain and Hurt (Part 1)

When I Look Into Your Holiness

In this post I wanted to share asong of worship with you. I recorded this song at my home in Western Australia with my guitar, bass and vocals. This is an old song of worship, but absolutely one of my favourites.

The End We’ll See

Divorce is not the end for the Christian man or woman. Failure of any kind is not fatal or excluding. Weakness in yourself, holes in your character that show. They’re not the end of the story, for the Christian, this much we know. Jesus came not for the perfect or completed. He didn’t come to…
