Steve Jobs saw the iPhone first in his dreams. Elon Musk had to create the Tesla in his mind first. And David had to think of the temple first before Salomon could build it. None of the great philosophies, works of art or changes in society would be possible without someone thinking of it first. Meaning and purpose drive humans to create.…

This is the last part of a series. If you haven’t yet, I’d recommend you read part one and part two first. So you’re set free? You climb the mountains, break your demons and roar in victory? Praise God, that’s good. It’s the life God promised us. Breathing in the fullness of freedom, from glory to glory. But life gets busy, doesn’t…

This post is the second part of a longer article. I recommend you read part one first. Bill Johnson once said, “Every thought that does not inspire hope is rooted in a lie.” Is everything you believe empowering you, focused on him and expecting his involvement? Do you dream of your destiny founded in the heart of God, living and preparing…

The senses are sharp, and the mind is focused. The arms are raised to protect against the blows. Jab jab boom! He goes to sleep, the fight is over. He had it coming; he had to pay. His raging insults hit the spot. He knew what to say to spark the rage. The words demanded a reaction, and this is…

The sweet morning dew is rushing through my nostrils. Beams of the rising sun pierce the dawn. My breath is heavy. The fast pounding in my neck distracts me from what lies only a few moments away. “Today I might go home. I lived my life by the laws our father Moses received from above. I fought every enemy that…

The shreds are flying, as they say in German. We often fight the most ruthless with he people closest to us. The stakes are high and the words cut deep. Our emotions take over and the wild west makes know it’s here. Our perception dictates our actions, and we end up with our hands in the air and our tongues…

“Screw it all! I have tried and tried again, and I’m sick and tired of it. I’m going to the bar.” The pressures of life can get overwhelming sometimes. Things don’t work the way we hoped for, and even our greatest push backs didn’t accomplish a thing. Our sweat and tears are in vain, and our efforts run down the…

Scavengers and savages are ruling the world. Come and take what your want. Sexual freedom is there for all of us. Taking is interpreted as giving and the gift becomes a debt. Support for sexual freedom is everywhere and victims keep quiet for fear of shame and blame. Young girls are getting raped, futures destroyed and destinies taken. Women with…
