    How it Feels to Love Jesus

    Recently I have been trying to figure out how to explain and communicate my feelings and love for Jesus.  Unless you know Him, you don’t know what that feeling is like. Well today a FB friend of mine Joy Jenkins shared, almost by accident, a video with me. Normally I won’t watch a 30 min video in the morning before work.  But since I don’t hear from Joy very often, I figured it was something that I needed to listen to. This video brought tears to my eyes.  It perfectly expresses what it feels like to love Jesus! Just click below to play: Hope this moves you as much as…

    This is a BIG Deal – Kanye West’s Conversion to Christianity!

    Why Jesus is Better than “New Age”

    For many, many years, I identified as part of the  “New Age” movement. Pretty happy as a New Ager and hanging out with all my other New Ager-type friends.  And being part of that was an important step in my spiritual path. But today I woke up and I was thinking about being a “New Ager” versus being a “Christian”. The big difference is with New Age there is no accountability. There is nobody or nothing  keeping you accountable. Not even God is keeping you accountable. So, when you exist as a New Ager, you are kind of la de da, take what you want, then toss away what you…
