I very much dislike yard work. It is not mowing the grass I mind so much, but it is those darn weeds. I hate pulling weeds. No matter how much weed killer I use, or how much of the root I get, there always seems to be another weed just waiting to sprout. So much wasted time pulling weeds. So what happens if we just … Continue reading What Is Your Superpower?
I am in a season of growth. I know without a doubt God is working some things out in me and in my life. I may not like the process, but I am excited about the results. I am excited for the victories. Victories, yes, victories. I don’t know about you, but I am a lot better at noticing my mistakes than my victories. I … Continue reading Look for the Victories
Though None Go With Me, Still I Will Follow I have decided to follow Jesus, I have decided to follow Jesus. I have decided to follow Jesus; no turning back, no turning back. Though none go with me, still I will follow, though none go with me, still I will follow. Though none go with me, still I will follow; no turning back, no turning … Continue reading Though None Go With Me, Still I Will Follow
I am not going to lie; right now I feel like a liar, a big fat liar, liar pants on fire. I titled this blog, “Getting Real” because it was my intention to do just that. However, in my quest not to write out of hurt or anger, I don’t feel like I’m very real. But I’ll keep writing away, and maybe when the time … Continue reading Have You Paid Your Toll?
For me, writing angry or hurt is like drunk dialing……something that should be avoided at all cost. Don’t worry, I have been writing, just not writing that should be read by anyone….at least not yet. If there is one thing I have learned over the years is that when I am hurt I tend to lash out and hurt someone else. After all, “hurt people … Continue reading Just Say No to Writing Angry
I know it is Reblog Friday, but I have been bad this week and haven’t had much time to visit other sites. So, I will do a modified “reblog” and share an excerpt out of David Platt’s Counter Culture that has been on my mind for a few weeks now as the ISIS issues intensify, the whole Iran debacle takes us further from God’s protection … Continue reading Reblog Friday: Countering Culture
Happy Wednesday to you all! I try to be very careful to not overwrite about myself on this blog as it is more geared to discipleship, so many of you are unaware of some health issues I am facing/have faced. About six years ago I battled with hyperthyroidism. While it can be treated with medication and is often easy to manage, I wasn’t so lucky. … Continue reading Day One of The Rest of My Life
I spent the last week drafting the second letter for the second part of my introduction but failed to capture what I really wanted to say. Then God reminded me that I had already said it (quite well if I say so myself) a year or so ago. So, why reinvent the wheel? Oh, by the way, I planned to address the other side of … Continue reading How Homosexual Marriage Affects Me-Introduction Part 2
Have you ever followed a kicking and screaming toddler with his or her parent in a grocery store? Well, if you have, you would recognize the scene where God and I are at right now. Yep, I am the kicking and screaming toddler that God is pulling along. It is not a pretty picture. I do not want to write this. But, yet, I do not … Continue reading How Homosexual Marriage Affects Me (Introduction Part 1)
Just because God wants us to do something doesn’t mean we are going to like it. This has been my life for the last three or four years. It seems that when I decided to commit my life to Christ, I mean fully commit, he decided to test my faith, and I have been moving mountains ever since. As some of you know, I feel … Continue reading Questions We Must Ask Ourselves Regarding Homosexuality
