Chris Martin Writes

The Stranger was the first novella I published on the Amazon Kindle store. It’s currently for sale at a whopping $.99. I’ve decided to post it here, on my blog, in it’s entirety, for free. I am passionate about writing posts that demonstrate the love and grace of Jesus and what He’s doing in my life, but I also love writing fiction.

Here’s the plan. For the next ten weeks, I will post a chapter each Friday. Let’s call it Fiction Friday. Feel free to hashtag the crap out of that. I hope you enjoy the story. If you like this one, I have a couple more on Amazon. You can find them here: Author Page

What does it take to be a lion? An episode of National Geographic or Animal Planet on life in the Serengeti will answer that question in graphic, violent, well filmed documentaries.  Male lions are born into privilege. Their  majestic appearance is a hindrance to the ambush style of the hunt.  Their beautiful manes make being inconspicuous nearly impossible and their hulking physique make them much to slow to catch most prey. They spend nearly 18 hours a day in slumber and after the females return with the spoils, the male lions are always the first to eat. Known to take on a pack of hyenas – solo – their most ferocious competitor…

Go From Victim to Victor – How To Forgive When It Hurts So Much – Bible Inspiration

Great post Darrell Creswell, and thank you for sharing it…

Darrell Creswell - A Study of Christian Grace

forgiveness Ephesians 4:32 Forgiveness is the root of all that we are, or ever wish to be. Forgiveness is the very breath of God. It is the grace of God that is the foundation of all that we are – everything is based on forgiveness.

Without forgiveness there would be no church walls. Without forgiveness there would be no Bible. Without forgiveness there would be no communion, no Sunday School, fellowship or worship service. Understanding the power of grace and forgiveness in our life lays the foundation for a more joyful life in Christ.

Grace is the essence of all that we are in Christ, and it is the gift of God that allows us to forgive.

The Sudanese Air Force bombed more civilians in South Kordofan state this week, murdering a Christian man and injuring a 13-year-old girl, an area source said.

As part of what area Christians believe is President Omar al-Bashir’s campaign to rid the country of Christianity and the ethnic Nuba people, a government jet on Monday (Feb. 10) dropped three bombs on Damardago village, killing a Christian identified only as 30-year-old Timotuos, the source said.
