The Apex

The word Apex is defined as "The uppermost point".  So, for example, the summit of a mountain would be the Apex of that mountain.  The highest point. The very tip top of that mountain is the Apex.  People spend between $30,000 - $90,000 to attempt to hike Mount Everest.  The dream for many is to…

Complacency & Despair: The Enemy’s Tactics

If there have been two particular tactics being used by the Enemy this day and age, it has been complacency and/or despair. I find that, at times, I am either in one one or the other. Sometimes, depending on what side of the bed I woke up on. It’s been especially noticeable, lately, that I…

Facebook is Not Your World

Just like probably everyone else, I have been lamenting and even been angered about what is currently going on in this country. My brain has been crammed full of statistics, news stories, and opinions. Imagine a hoarder’s house overrun with garbage, junk, and newspapers. I am pretty sure that’s what the inside of my head…

God with Us

When we look at a problem and when we focus on the mess, it’s easy to get lost in it. While I was reading my Bible this morning, the seemingly dire situation that we currently find ourselves in came to mind. For just a brief moment, I viewed the situation from the filter that we…

In the Valley

I’ve been reading (for the 2nd time) a book by Tozer called Alive in the Spirit. He wrote something that stood out to me concerning the person of the Holy Spirit and how we miss the point when we don’t seek out a relationship with Him. We ask for the gifts of the Spirit like…
