I find myself walking away, pretty often these days, from the madness others create in my personal malaise. Sometimes, the ways of others pulls me down to a familiar land. A place where I once walked in ways I can no longer stand. They call me to come along with them; to embark in ways of old. They say, “for old times’ sake,” but misery … Continue reading Through The Thorn
If we realized that we are forgiven through the Christ who did die for all, we would begin to see our need for Him… Are we still condemned since “the fall“? I have a problem with those who say we must obey in order to be redeemed; in order to be able to say that we are HOLY in the eye of God. As if … Continue reading No Addition
I have an acquaintance who had sent a video link to my phone. The short five-minute sketch was performed by a well-known comedian. The guy was answering the door for trick-or-treaters, saying, as well as doing very raunchy things. The humor was something that I would have thoroughly enjoyed in past years, but I watched about two minutes of it and completely lost interest. It … Continue reading Mr. Positivity

My company hired a man as an outside sales representative a few years ago. He was a friendly man. He always seemed to have a smile on his face, and a kind word to say. As I got to know this man, I learned a few things about him. He had a terrible temper. The fits that he would throw at certain times were pretty … Continue reading “I’m Not So Sure…”
You may know the story of why Jesus was crucified, but have you experienced that crucifixion? Crucifixion, according to Wikipedia, is “a method of capital punishment in which the victim is tied or nailed to a large wooden beam and left to hang for several days until eventual death from exhaustion and asphyxiation.” Not long ago, hope was just a word. It had no value, … Continue reading A Walking Dead Man
The Bread from Heaven 22 On the following day, when the people who were standing on the other side of the sea saw that there was no other boat there, except that one which His disciples had entered, and that Jesus had not entered the boat with His disciples, but His disciples had gone away alone— 23 however, other boats came from Tiberias, near the … Continue reading I’m Never Hungry Or Thirsty.
