Reality and Feelings

This past Sunday I had one of the worst mornings I could have ever had. It just kept getting worse and worse all the way to church. Finally once I got to church I really prayed about it, and felt God there for me and then I realized... The thing that happened was so tiny and the amount of pain I was feeling was for me to give to God. I then realized that I have a really g...

Distraction

I don't know if any of you have ever been drawn to a book to the point where you feel trapped in its words, its story, or its characters, but I know I have. If you know me, I always have a book with me, and it's been that way for a long time. But whenever I come across one of those books that pull me in right away, I always become lost to the world around me. It isn't rea...

My Life Then & Now

My name is Nick Ford, I am 15 years old and I live in Rutland MA. For those who don't really know me I will give you a brief description of my life. I was born in Bryansk Russia and I was brought to an orphanage at a very young age. I was there until I was adopted by my parents who I live with today at 11 months. Throughout my life in the US and a member of the Ford family...

Christianity as Truth

Going back to my first blog post about how it is interesting that Christianity is one of the most persecuted religions in the world (just as the Bible predicted); here is a rather interesting argument/talking point somewhat related. One of the biggest complaints about Christianity, and to be fair, all religions in general, is their failure to "modernize." People complain ...

Family First! - Not a Biblical Viewpoint - by Dr. Ben Witherington

I like families as much as the next person, indeed, I love my own birth and marriage families a lot. I've been married for over 35 years, and I see that as a good thing. And in a world where there are a lot of dysfunctional families, broken families single parent families, extended families, it is understandable that there might be a colossal over-reaction to this broken...

Preparation

Last week a 19 yr. old relative of my sister-in-law took his own life. Last week a friend unexpectedly lost her Mom. A friends Mom had a heart attack last night. As these tragic events happen they prompt us to take a step back and reflect, to "take inventory of our own lives" because the reality is, a tragedy could happen to any of us at any time. While talking with family...

Storms Led me to HIM...

I could sit and write and tell you what kind of significant other to look for. I could tell you the type of person to avoid. I won't do that. Deep down you already know these things. Besides, you probably would not listen. I didn't, as a teenager or as an adult. I did not go into my marriage, either one of them, expecting to get a divorce. Nor did I expect to be raising...

My Dreams They Are a Changin...

I have recently found that God makes more of an impact on my life than I recently thought. I will soon be 16 and its a big time right now. I am learning to drive and looking for jobs and becoming more mature in myself and in God. During this maturity time, I have been singing since I was a little girl with my daddy up on the stage in church. Since then I have been singing...

Eye On It

I spent my first 33 years as a confirmed couch potato. My sister-in-law once told me my best talent is going out to dinner, but I disagreed saying I was even better at lying around reading a book. I used to hear people say things like "Running clears my head" or "I love the runner's high!" and just silently remark- "The only running I will be doing is right after I deck yo...

Opinions - We All Have Them

How many times a day do you hear about one of your friends being bullied? Or, do you hear people's whispered conversations from behind you? Those things hurt. Sometimes, we try to please others and get into the 'good crowd' or with the popular kids at school. Whatever it is, someone, somewhere, has an opinion of you. But we can know, that those opinions are only opinions...
