So I wrote this prayer… I prayed this prayer…And everything changed. It’s dangerous…But necessary… Pray it loud… Lord, Cut our hearts in half. Take the half that may belong to You and hold it, massage it it, redeem it, revive it. Take the half that belongs to us and destroy it, crush it, break it, defeat it. Fear is not the enemy. Fear is a facade that lies within the half of our hearts that belongs to us. Crush it. Death is not the enemy. Death is victory. Weeping may stay for Read more.

I wrote the following a year ago, a block from my Nashville home… “When I walked out of the bedroom, down the hallway, and into the living room, there she was. Face down on the ground. Palms facing towards the sky. “I really don’t have time for this” I thought to myself. But how was I supposed to see my wife facedown before the Lord and not, myself, do the same? So down Read more.
