What I’m Thankful For

For this Thanksgiving, I’ve decided to write a belated list of the things I’m most thankful for this past year. My family: as much as I often get annoyed by my many siblings and wished the worst for them, I’m happy they’re alive and that I can call them family. I love my mom and … Continue reading

I Love You Bro (No Homo!)

One of the greatest tragedies I see today is the absence of candid, loving relationships between guys. If you’re a guy, I’m pretty sure you cringed, raised your eyebrows, or became a bit confused or taken aback, because I certainly winced when I wrote the words out. The sad reality is that in the past … Continue reading

No Time to Prepare During Battle

A soldier trains before he enters battle. He makes sure he is physically fit, capable of using his weapons well, and tweaks his instincts and resolve. After all, if he decides to train during battle, he’ll likely be slaughtered before he can even guess at how he can begin fighting. As Christians, we also need … Continue reading

I either broke my commitment to give something up, or neglected my daily devotions, Bible study, and/or prayer and meditation. Most … Continue reading

The Power of Christian Blogs

I’ve had the awesome opportunity to read some peoples’ blogs and posts, and have been greatly encouraged by what they wrote. One hard thing about blogging is that to be truly effective in delivering whatever you learned from God to your audience, you must be sensitive to who your audience is. You must be wary … Continue reading

Jesus is in my Backpack!

Let’s face it: taking Christ to school isn’t very easy sometimes. Even though I attend a Christian private school, the atmosphere isn’t all that different from public schools. There is still the persecution (at a very water-downed level) and the inappropriate speech. I’ve asked myself more than once a week: How do I take Christ … Continue reading
