New Beginnings

Written on February 21, 2017 at 1:58 pm, by

There is a major part to the Christian belief system that tends to get past some; well…. maybe all of us.  That would be the truth, the fact, that in Christ we are new day by day.  Oh how we struggle to live this out. At County Fairs some have a competition called a Tractor […]

Obsessed With Certainty Of Wonder

Written on February 10, 2017 at 10:51 am, by

A man I never met turned my world around to the point I’ve never gotten over it.  God places people and/or their works in our paths along the way and such is the case for me.  E. Stanley Jones wrote a very small book which continues to provide quite large blessings.  I’ve never forgotten my […]

Preachers, Politicians, And Other Questionable Characters 

Written on January 31, 2017 at 4:33 pm, by

Our nation is in a world of enormous opportunity!  There is great need among the citizens, firm ideas among some noted as leaders, and possibility of success as far as minds dare imagine.  For politicians and guys like myself in spiritual leadership, we must abort any habitual divisive ways and renew our vows to do […]

Try Not to Fall for the ‘Fools Gold’ of Believing You are Better Than Others 

Written on January 24, 2017 at 12:45 pm, by

Mediocrity hits us from all sides of life.  Name the topic of your moment and take note as to how much playing-life-safe while walking down the middle of the road is your lifestyle.  Our spiritual side has been knocked for a loop over this trend which seems so natural and is so acceptable.  This takes […]

Wouldn’t The World Be Better Off If… 

Written on January 16, 2017 at 2:18 pm, by

How would you assess a broad improvement for the world order?  Let me take a stab at your guestimation.  No.  Let me tell you mine and see if yours lines up.  I don’t intend to go through life being so obnoxious, but I have this corner of my heart that believes that if everyone would/could/should […]

Quit Being A Big Baby 

Written on January 10, 2017 at 9:06 am, by

The admonition to refrain from being a big baby begins with me and then proceeds on toward you.  Not only do we all have this as a possibility, each of us has our moments when others see it of us; even if we don’t. Yes we know a few things.  Compared to all that is […]

The Pregnancy Of Death

“For the Son of God, Christ Jesus, who was preached among you by us—by me and Silvanus and Timothy—was not yes and no, but is yes in Him. For as many as are the promises of God, in Him they are yes; therefore also through Him is our Amen to the glory of God through us.”  II Corinthians 1:19-20. This statement thunders with new hope for every person […]

Lifted Twice: On The Cross and From the Grave

Written on December 13, 2016 at 8:56 am, by

We need this.  We need to know how to live a lifted life.  Otherwise, we will repeat Peter’s failed attempt.  Instead of walking on water, we too will just sorta slosh through life.  But Jesus’ extended hand changes that sinking feeling into a lifted celebration. The reason that I write of this today is because […]

Death’s Testimony

Written on December 6, 2016 at 10:25 am, by

Isn’t Fall a most beautiful time of the year?  It’s my favorite.  The color scheme from God’s creative pallet is so awesome that even the finest photographers may catch only a momentary glimpse.  Eventually, naked trees stand as if death to the beauty made the final call. Yet, we know that such isn’t true. The […]

Shouldn’t I Have Matured A Bit By Now? 

Written on November 29, 2016 at 10:15 am, by

As it turns out, life isn’t going the way I had assumed.  Now, understand, I love it very much and really wouldn’t want to be without it.  But what surprises me is that I had just figured that by age 69 I would have a better grip on life’s unfoldings.  But it simply doesn’t seem […]
