Chasing Mirages

Trying to pick a major in college was a pretty difficult thing for me to do. I must have changed my mind a dozen times throughout the process, and even tried my hand at a few careers. I had pretty lofty expectations of how I would feel if it were my calling, and what the outcome should look like. While I did enjoy some of these professions, I still felt something lacking. Here I’d devoted so much time and energy to seek degrees and establish careers, yet after the newness inevitably wore off, I’d be in the same position and wondering...

The Enemy’s Strategy

  In my younger days I’d never given much thought to spiritual warfare. To me it was more of an abstract thought and a concept that I accepted for the bigger things in life. For example, when we hear about more tragedies in the news, we can blame the enemy for creating that disaster.  He’s got a presence on this earth in general, but not necessarily in my life or heart. Or so I thought. Boy did I think wrong! Fast forward a few more years and I entered into a dark time in my life and marriage. Things were going...
