The Armor of God

The book of Ephesians is a great discourse on how we should live in this world. Paul speaks about who we are to become, unity with other believers from different backgrounds, unity in our every day life, and from where the power to live this way comes. I focused on the verses found in 6:10-18 for my recent belt test and thought I would share with you what I dug from those verses.

SCOTUS and prayer

Something happened today which has put a fire in my gut. The SCOTUS told the states that same-sex marriage is legal. I'm not upset about the marriage issue. I'm upset because 5 people told the rest of us what we can and can't do. 5 people legislated from the bench because they think it's right. The problem is it's not their job. But what can we do? We didn't vote them in and we can't vote them out. Are we helpless in this situation?

I say no. But we've got to get together and allow that fire to spread.

Little steps towards goals.

Last Saturday I had the privilege of testing with seven other KICS students. It was an amazing day.

Feeling overwhelmed?

I woke up this morning overwhelmed. It actually started to kick in last night but this morning it was fully overhead weighing me down with questions and accusations. I'm now exhausted and I've only been out of bed for two hours. We wont talk about how long I have been awake.
