Top 3 of 2014

Even though 2014 was a bit of a down year for "Rak Chazak", it doesn't mean that I am giving up on this blog.  I love the opportunity to share what the Lord has taught me, and will continue to teach me in the years to come.  One thing is for sure, 2014 has been … Continue reading Top 3 of 2014



The day after any American holiday always seems to be an interesting day for me.  I guess you could say that I'm always taken aback by how we Americans are so apt to fill the endless amount of social media space with our adoration and thanks, but the rest of the time, it's filled with … Continue reading Coalescence

The Great Danger

"The great danger…lies precisely in his constant contact with divine things." ~ Benjamin B. Warfield (1911) When asked, "Give me a few things that when you first saw them, you were in awe?"  A very common answer that comes up time and time again, the Grand Canyon.  What is it about this monstrosity of a … Continue reading The Great Danger

5 minutes inside eternity

I had to share this.  It wrecked me.  Not too many videos like this do, but this one did.  God forgive me for being timid, insecure, and withdrawn about sharing the Gospel!  Please share this on all your social media sites.  I don't ask that often.  Either Facebook, Twitter, Google+, your blog, etc.  Get this … Continue reading 5 minutes inside eternity

In pursuit of American freedom

I stand tall.  I immediately well up with pride.  I lose touch with everything going on around me.  My vision gazed upon the colors.  My ears tuned in.  My heart bursts with thankfulness.  On most occasions I get goose-bumps.  Admittedly, I have shed a tear or two.  I think of the hundreds of thousands of … Continue reading In pursuit of American freedom

The huddled masses are yearning to breathe free

Should I be angry?  Should I be confused?  Am I supposed to be conflicted in regards to the recent immigration events going on?  As many of you are now aware, the immigration debate has taken a turn today.  Initially, around 140 illegal immigrants are being transported to a neighboring city to be processed and released … Continue reading The huddled masses are yearning to breathe free
