Girls Don’t Deserve Roses

To all my women readers, In a few hours it will be Valentine’s Day. Ever since childhood, we have engrained images in our our minds about this special day.

I Know

In the past I had a serious entitled “I Just Don’t Know.” I believe I did 3 posts with this title. If you check out my past posts you might be able to tell that these words came at times of extreme confusion. Times of immense uncertainty. Times where fear coated my core. I still…

“Bird House” by n.J.bellacicco There once was a carpenter, who wanted to build a bird house for his dying friend. He and his friend would sit by the window and watch the birds eat from the feeder all day long. This friend could not move because he was too weak. The birds would come and…

Failing your New Year’s Resolution

Like the majority of the world… whenever I start a new year’s resolution I fail miserably after the first few weeks. After I get off track, I seem to give up because….well I lost. My bad habits won.  I get so discouraged at my lack of willpower that it seems to zap away all my…

I’m Here For a Good Time

Lately, I’ve been thinking a lot about my relationship. My relationship with… time. Whenever I haven’t studied enough I constantly say, “There just isn’t enough time.” When I am hanging out with friends, it feels like it is over in a millisecond. Time moves so fast. When I am at the doctor’s office waiting for…

The Purse Lady

He Gave Me the Bird

God gave me the bird. Before I am called a blasphemer… Let me explain.  The last few months have all about listening to God for me. My whole life I have been a talker. For those that know me well can attest to this fact. However, in the brokenness and confusion of the last few…

God Wrecked Me 

I’m a Christian man. I pray. I’ve never missed a Sunday. I love people. I love God. Yet, for some reason in my heart I never believed that I heard His voice. In my prayers I felt distance. In my Church I felt distracted. I love people but how can I love more? I love…
