Happy Birthday, 2 Years Old!

This month Alancetotheheart is two years old.  Wow what a journey it has been.  342 posts later I can say much has changed and much has stayed the same.  That sounds pretty cliché I know but let me see if I can explain. When I started writing I felt like the “great defender of God’s…

Christus Victor

I think most people are familiar with deja vous.  You walk into a room and are doing something that you feel like you have done before or seen before, etc.  I believe the Holy Spirit often speaks to us in a similar way.  You just know that you know something.  Sometimes it is a “word of…
