The Duck Dynasty

By |2018-07-08T16:12:50-08:00December 19th, 2013|Trying Faith Blog|0 Comments

Phil Robertson was put fired (put on indefinite hiatus) from the A&E network reality show, Duck Dynasty, for expressing HIS christian views on the meaning of sin in an interview he participated in with GQ magazine. Need proof that Christian values are being torn out of the very fabric of our society? Look no further... Duck Dynasty's Phil Robertson, the patriarch of the family that has the number one rated show in [...]

Desert Dessert

By |2018-07-08T16:12:50-08:00August 7th, 2013|Trying Faith Blog|0 Comments

The title of this post is fitting. After all, we all like dessert, right? Well, before you get to eat your dessert, you must eat your dinner. However, we don't always like what we are served for dinner. There are times in life when you feel like you're wandering aimlessly through the desert. While you're wandering, you might wonder how you are going to get through it all, but somehow you still get by. [...]

Important Matters

By |2014-11-15T14:16:51-08:00July 28th, 2013|Trying Faith Blog|0 Comments

I often struggle to understand myself. And, like everything else in this world that is complicated and strangely annoying (usually due to human intervention), I don't think I ever will. The path I am following is faith-based, at least I like to think so. I do however find myself admitting failure more often than not. Is this because my failures stand out more than my successes? If so, I best learn from them! That [...]

Time Trials

By |2018-07-08T16:12:50-08:00June 22nd, 2013|Trying Faith Blog|0 Comments

Life is full of ups and downs that seem to never end. Any experienced Christian will tell you that once you give your life to Christ, your trials will soon begin. Don't get me wrong, I'm in no way suggesting that your previous trials don't matter, quite the contrary. Apply any and all past experiences to these trials. These new trials will test you like you have never been tested before. These trials have [...]

The Meaning of Life

By |2018-07-08T16:12:50-08:00March 3rd, 2013|Trying Faith Blog|0 Comments

What is the meaning of life? It's an age old question. Some say that it's different for everyone, some say it's a Monty Python movie and, as Curley said to Mitch in the movie City Slickers, "It's one thing...that you have to figure out." Out of these three possibilities, I would have to say that the first and third are the closest to the answer. But these answers only address the perspective of what [...]

By The Grace of God

By |2018-07-08T16:12:53-08:00February 25th, 2013|Trying Faith Blog|0 Comments

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. Ephesians 2:8-9 This is a story of two men, Joe and Sam. Both work hard, and both attend church on a weekly basis. They both have similar lives. Their families are about the same size and both of their jobs are similarly boring and stressful. Their financial [...]

Practice What You Preach

By |2018-07-08T16:12:53-08:00February 22nd, 2013|Trying Faith Blog|0 Comments

We often hear people using phrases like practice what you preach, walk the walk, and talk the talk. More often than not, these same people don't adhere to the practice, walk, or talk they are preaching. This is a common trait shared by ALL members of the human race. Lets face it, weather we like it or not, each and every one of us is a hypocrite to one degree or another. OK, so, [...]

Toast to Jesus

By |2014-11-15T14:15:11-08:00February 18th, 2013|Trying Faith Blog|0 Comments

Today I would like to give a toast to the man that gave His life in order to set the ultimate example for humans to follow. He sacrificed himself for us to set this example, and by doing so, proved that humans are fully capable of rising above and defeating the Earthly desires that, all to often, lead us away from our full potential. I would be lying if I told you that following [...]

Are You Feeling Stressed Out

By |2018-07-08T16:12:53-08:00February 17th, 2013|Trying Faith Blog|0 Comments

There are a number of life issues that can and will get you stressed out. Here's an easy one that we are all familiar with, the economy. Many are without income, many are without jobs, and many more are hurting financially while still working harder and taking on more responsibilities due to increased workloads from pay cuts and layoffs within their companies organization. These things tend to bring us down (I'm speaking here from [...]
