I wrote this at a time when I was exploring the difference between real faith and intellectual certainty. Faith isn’t about holding all the right answers. It’s about trusting in God, especially when it’s hard to. Faith is trust in a person. I got to a point where my faith as an intellectual thing was […]
Who can comprehend the inner machinations of the universe? Mechanical? No, it’s rather organic I’d say, but what man can understand its worth? Not to mention, does comprehension of how it works allow its course to be perturbed? Does this universe dare to be disturbed? I say it does! Yes! I confess, though it may […]
Let it rain tonight. We weary few have fought the fight. The fight for the salt and light Has left us few battered and bruised So let it rain tonight. Let it rain tonight. It’s long past twilight And we few have fought with all our might. Fought for the coming light So let it […]
I am my brothers keeper Though often I seem to be A battered, bruised, brother beater. But I will not stand by as my brother is beat down by another, or by me, no less. So long as we share the same breath And our hearts beat in our chests. So long as in us […]
