Between Heaven & Hell

When I sit down to prepare for the incredible task of communicating for God, I keep one thing at the front of my mind: I am smack dab on the front lines of a spiritual war. It’s a war that has raged ever since Satan decided to no longer submit to Almighty God.

Sadly, there have been times in my life when I fought for the wrong side…the losing side. But the love of God, revealed through the Lord Jesus, allowed me the be born-again. To borrow words from Paul’s letter to the Colossians, I’ve been transferred from the domain of darkness to the Kingdom of God’s beloved son.

And I want to write stories that show characters in real life situations who experience the hope that God can bring to any life. I do write stories that include darkness, but I do that so that I can show how the light of God can conquer that darkness.

Yes, I believe that my writing is part of the spiritual warfare that is going on beyond the veil. All around us. Every day.

Ready. Aim. Fire.
