LET THERE BE LIGHT!

Getting saved when you come from a Christian family is kind of confusing, you know you are supposed to do it, and you end up doing it so many times, but it’s only the last one that counts, right? The last time I gave my life to Christ was in 2010, I remember feeling like…

On Thoughts

Hurry now, child Take those thoughts captive Those lies that appear as truth; Running awry in your mind And putting chains on you that I fought to remove Stand up child, Declare the truth that you know And they’ll go scurrying away like the cowards that they are before you- son of God. You know…
