I wrote this as a tribute to my grandfather.
It is easy to praise the Lord’s sovereignty in the peaks and mountain tops. Yet as many know, the Christian life is often not spent in the grassy hilltops, but rather in the trenches, where it is cold, dirty and lonely.
Many have said, “if God is all-powerful, He cannot be all-good. If He is all-good, then He cannot be all-powerful.” This is the danger of forgetting the Gospel.
Here’s a thought for you. I don’t think we Christians are wired to handle fame. I don't think we are wired in a way that gives us the ability to deal with stardom in a beneficial way. I think there is a very special and Biblical reason for this.

"It’s always interesting to think about what your last words will be. Will they be funny, sarcastic, or as bleak as death itself? These are the last words I want you to hear from your dad."
Christianity is bloody. It’s not about appearing a certain way or trying to make it look like we aren’t putting the old man to death every second. It's about Christ covering the worst of us. Friend, it’s time we stop hiding the blood.
