IAMFORGIVEN

He knew my name

Every morning I go into Starbucks to enjoy my vanilla latte, read my bible and have my daily devotion. This is the time that God speaks to me through His word and shows me areas of my life where He wants to come in and make better. Not only that but I get to build…

Loving Jesus VS Being a Christian

I woke up with this on my mind and it really was a message to me. But I decided to write it because I know it will impact many others that call themselves Christians. When I was 13 I gave my life to Jesus and started to call myself a Christian. I would pick up…

A Christian Man’s perspective of a desirable woman

Years ago I was asked a very unique question about what I found beautiful in a woman.  My answer consisted of a bunch of features that I liked and all based on appearance.  I would also throw in the “she must also love Jesus”, just to hit some areas of character and not sound to…

His name was James

It was my last day in Chicago and we wanted to go down to see this thing called the BEAN.  This huge weird shaped reflective piece of art in the middle of downtown.  As we walked up to where it was there was this really happy homeless guy that wanted to talk to us.  I…

Wants VS Needs

Guys, I am not sure if you have ever experienced this, but this is something that God had shown me.  We live in a world that gets WANTS and NEEDS so deeply intertwined that we can’t tell the difference between what is necessary to live and what we think we need to be happy. I…
