Truly Amazing!

Praise God!  All glory, honor, praise and worship!  Please pray for an encounter I’m in the midst of.  I went out to witness and met, Dwight, a homeless man who was planning on killing himself with drugs (a mixture of a ton of methadone and other drugs).  He’s safe, dumped out the chemicals and hasContinue reading “Truly Amazing!”

A coin

I’ve been thinking, odd I know, Evan thinking, outrageous! 😉 yes indeed turning to Christ involves true repentance and faith (trust). These however are not to be thought of as two separate things. They are really two sides to the same coin. You find out how despicable, corrupt, and hopeless you are before an allContinue reading “A coin”

The Real problem

I’ve come to a startling realization: I’ve been walking in unbelief.   My constant fears and doubts are not pleasing to God.  Nor are they the show of “maturity” in making sure I am indeed saved (the liar tried that one lol).  I have walked in doubt of the promises of God Himself.   He promised thatContinue reading “The Real problem”

Must be said

Please please note I am not saying these things to present myself as “holier-than-though.” I share my experience, the miraculous ways I’ve been spared literal death, freed from sin, forgiven, etc., to point to Christ and glorify my Savior. I am nothing, I do not want praise, I do not want titles, I do notContinue reading “Must be said”

What a long strange trip it’s been

I am born-again (John 3:3),  not by works, not by decisions,  not by religion, not by ritual, not by good works, or anything else of myself,  I have been born anew in Christ Jesus: forever His by unmerited grace and mercy in simple faith, trust in His promises.   Wow, our Lord is truly incredible!  I’veContinue reading “What a long strange trip it’s been”

Smoldering wick

A bruised reed it is weak and frail to the touch The more I consider it’s nature it becomes all too much Something so precious as to hold in my hands The keys to a kingdom in His distant land I’m told all things I can do through Him I do trust These tests theyContinue reading “Smoldering wick”

The face of sins reward

I’ve always been pretty stubborn. Perhaps you can associate. I always had to find out for myself, take “the hard road.” If someone suggests something i listen and go about my way. If I’m ordered to do something i immediately rebel. As a result of this hard-heartedness you see, is my rather chaotic life. I’mContinue reading “The face of sins reward”

Under pressure

We’re all under pressure, right? Most defiently: pressure from the inside, pressure from the outside, pressure all around. Family, friends, work, finances, expectations, decisions, etc., etc. A lot going on each and everyday! Mr. Bowie, and Mercury had it right! 😉 Imagine with me something: say you won an exorbitant amount of money, say 10Continue reading “Under pressure”

Rather offensive

The love and mercy of our, God is beautiful and truly incredible.   With that said, in addition,  coupled with our, Lord’s love is His holiness.  God is ultimately and totally holy, as such He has wrath: righteous indignation toward transgressions, and transgressors. And rightfully so. These two characteristics of the, Godhead in total, are playedContinue reading “Rather offensive”
