Jesus Christ (Poem)Yes, there was a man born of fleshWho overcame the world and all its testsThe only one worthy to be called His holinessA royal king who spent His days with the poorest sectsThe only man on whose flesh maggots cannot feastWho took our sickness and sin, for love of you and meWho proclaimed, to be great you must become the leastHe is the greatest gift mankind through grace has ever reapedHe spent his days and nights connected to God the FatherKept it real at all times, like him there is no otherHated by all whom were corrupted by money and worldly powerAccepted his mission fully knowing, He'd die for unworthy followersI know we're not worthy to be known as those who follow ChristBut you still wouldn't trade us, even when Satan tried to change your mindYou endured the pain, the ridicule, and humiliation, a costly priceIf it were necessary, you'd do it all again to make everything rightMy King, Lord, and Savior, Jesus Christ, thank you once againFor taking those who feel so
Truly From My Heart: LoveDoes being a Christian mean that you're better than others? No. Does it mean that life is going to be 'easy street' after you become a Christian? No. Does it mean you'll instantly become perfect? No. No matter how long you've been saved, whether it be 30 seconds or 30 years, you will still go through hard times.

Being a Christian means realizing that you're meant for more than whatever this world has for you. That you can overcome ANYTHING that comes your way. That when you've reached rock bottom and are ready to give up, that God will offer you his hand to pick you up higher than you ever thought you could go.I've been an off and on Christian for most of my life now. It's never been easy. I've faced addictions, I've faced times when all I wanted to do was curl up and die, and there were times I wanted to even en
The Enemy of Social Awkwardness(12/09/2012)_______________________________________________________________________On the Thursday before Thanksgiving, while I was working on my netbook in the lobby of the Theatre building at the college campus, I was approached by an older woman named Cherie, who mustered up the courage to speak to me that late afternoon (about 5:30-ish). The conversation began with her pointing out the cross necklace I wear around my neck (she wore one too); she told me how encouraging it is for her to see me wearing it and supposed correctly of my (devout) Christianity. (She's also the very first stranger I've met in person who noticed the cross symbol on my hat! Good eye.) Cherie also told me she felt something within whenever she passed me and believed that God intended for us to meet. And I knew that things were about to get interesting.I told her that it can be easy for a Christian to feel alone, but the cross also reminds me that I'm really not alone. She asked me, "Why do you feel alone?"
