He Sat Alone

I couldn’t drag the man away… from himself. From himself — long enough for him to take a look. To take a look… to peer into the man that others see. The arrogant, self-centered and proud man. The man surrounded by trophies and awards. The man of importance. He wouldn’t step aside. He wouldn’t come over to the table where my friend and I were … Continue reading He Sat Alone

A Table For One

Some of God’s children are condemning those who fail– gloating and showing off, as they boastfully prevail. “Look at how their faith is of little use, as they welcome their underlying issues and the mask them with abuse! They are so dumb–can you believe what they do? They need to read their Bibles, and be like me and you! Just look at us; we are … Continue reading A Table For One

I wondered if the life to come will hold the same childlike innocence the boy was exploring. While watching him, … Continue reading Departure

All That Is

What are we to be, as we float around in the vastness–held down to this ground that we have learned to walk upon? Who am I in God’s plan? Why do humans have such an unstable balance? Why do so many love themselves before they love the desires of God? Why, in the unfathomably little amount of space that we truly take up within this … Continue reading All That Is

Rooted In Decay

What caused you to feel that way? So often, you speak of the misery. Is it worth the limited time you have here to dwell on your ancient history? Right now, the time is right to reflect, but not live in a place that your mind wanders to all too often; the place where you refuse to forgive. The wound upon your heart is bleeding … Continue reading Rooted In Decay
