Brought to the end of ourselves – the gift that marriage has given us

So, Jenny and I are celebrating our 6th year in marriage. To the one's that have been married recently that's like, "Wow that's amazing guys." To the ones that have been in this game for long they are like, "Mschew, nothing to see here." hahahahahaha On September 2, 2011, we made our vows before God and …

You waited by Travis Greene

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qnN9Zz6BBzs I love listening and playing songs that amplify who Jesus is and what he did for us. They warm my heart, nourish my soul and enrich my faith. This is on one those. You waited is a song by Travis Greene that is hitting the right grace tones at the moment. This song is in …

How Jesus serves us

The story of Ruth is one that really warms my heart because in a sense I see myself in her story. Every time I read her story, I'm enamored by how Jesus is always attracted to outsiders – the least, weak, women, poor, sick, imperfect, prisoner, widows, orphans, uneducated, oppressed, illegitimate, immigrants, etc. Her story …

Weaknesses…His grace is sufficient

Weakness is weak Revealingly bleak Like a creek it leaks and reeks Of failure…like a tick It sticks with abandon streak Yet it humanizes Even as it crystallizes You and I with increases Of the human population that God increases Even as He works through yours and my weaknesses Poem by Arnold Etyang I hate …

Grace and the beauty of sleep

I have always admired (even envied) how Jenny sleeps. She sleeps so well. Jenny can sleep for 12 hours straight with one or no breaks at all. She also sleeps very quietly. She makes no sounds at all. I could count with my fingers the few times I’ve heard her snore. You couldn’t even describe that …

I HAVE AN ACQUIRED IMMUNE DEFICIENCY SYNDROME towards all things godly

I have never liked tests (and probably never will). The one and only reason why I don’t like tests is that they threaten my important prideful self. They threaten to expose me for who I really am - lazy, incompetent, poor, prideful, slow, fearful and the list goes on and on and on. I guess this …

The gospel void in our generation is real

Judges 2:10-11 (NKJV) When all that generation had been gathered to their fathers, another generation arose after them who did not know the Lord nor the work which He had done for Israel. Then the children of Israel did evil in the sight of the Lord, and served the Baals. So, Joshua dies. His generation …

Read the Bible for yourself! Not so easy as it sounds

After years of listening to gospel and grace preachers the worst advice I've heard them give Christians is this - "go read the Bible for yourself". Grace preachers keep telling their audiences to read the Bible for themselves and not allow “theologians” to misconstrue the Bible. I think this is highly simplistic and misleading. To …

Your tender and delicate wife

Listen bro, Your tender and delicate wife will defy, disrespect, dislike you and many times submit to you with gritted teeth and a clenched fist - If you hadn’t noticed yet. It’s not her fault. It’s not even her parent’s fault. Her parents were just as defiant, disrespectful and insubordinate just as she is. Whose …
