* Note to My Readers: Due to the busyness of the next month and a half, I'm making a few minor changes to my schedule of posting. All posts will continue to be made daily and will consist of material that has not appeared before on this blog. However, because my time will be taken up by my final thesis defense for my Master of Church History degree and by a trip to the Holy Land, several of my ongoing series will be on hold until May.

- On Wednesdays, I'll be posting some of my original poems from my college years, and then in May my "Evangeliad" poems will resume.

- On Thursdays, my series on "How to Be Miserable in Your Christian Life" will wrap up by the end of March. That will conclude that series for now; however, if you enjoyed it, please let me know, because I may add more to it at some later point.

- And on Fridays, my "Glimpses of Grace" series will be on hiatus until May. In the meantime, it will be replaced with a serialized, unpublished novella that I wrote back in 2005, "Worth It All." Beginning in the first week of May, "Glimpses of Grace" will return, this time in the Thursday slot, and a newly-composed adventure novel will be posted on Fridays.

Short Poem from My Novels

This is one of three poems that appeared as the introductions to my Hidden Kings Trilogy, representing inspired prophecies about the characters and events in the salvation-history of my fictional world.

The Conqueror's Song

Words I speak,
Words of truth,
Words of wonder for the world.
Watch the northern forests now,
As dark turns into day.
The world spins,
And falls against itself…
And from the darkness comes a light,
From the darkness comes a light,
The Conqueror will come.
Now he rides to the ancient isle,
Bold of heart and true;
Now he breaks the dark one’s power,
And rises from the gloom.
Hearken now, my lordly friends,
And watch until he comes—
The blade is yours,
To become his,
And then, to be the world’s.
