Fighting to Believe

Teach me Your ways O’ Lord Show me what it is to do Your Will Lead me in ways of righteousness Confusion haunts the wandering mind. How to discern what is true? How to discern what is false?

Poetry – Surviving the Pain

Did you think it a walk in the park? Did you think there were only mountaintops? My son, the work is in the valley. My child, the beauty is in the pain. You will make it to tomorrow.

Bigger than Politics — Ben Foley’s Blog

God has his own Sovereign purpose and plans for whoever is in power! Sometimes those reasons or purposes can be hard to see, but even more so when we are blinded by our own political doctrine or agenda.

Poetry – Leaving the Desert

6 Month and Long Awaiting Believing and Never Seeing Hope nearly gone in the shadows In the Dark, grasping Your Promises are True, I proclaim Holed up, the heat kept crashing The devil tempting 40 Days almost cracked me You are so good Waiting, never expecting Live’s change forever in a Day Eternity has foundContinue reading “Poetry – Leaving the Desert”

The Sacred and the Secular

Why? Why do we think that there is some God-given divide between that which is Sacred and that which is Secular in our lives? Did God ever mean for this to be? Were we meant only to worship God in a church? Were we meant to only worship God on sacred holidays? Or is today,Continue reading “The Sacred and the Secular”

Followers of Jesus: Rise Up and Love!

From the many years I have studied scripture, Jesus seemed to care very little about his political influence, and more on how he could impact each person individually. From the woman at the well, to the blind man receiving sight, he never failed to take into account what each person needed and met them whereContinue reading “Followers of Jesus: Rise Up and Love!”
