I am not the person that attends church on a regular basis, if at all. If you ask me what directs my life though, I will answer without hesitancy. I place my life in God's hands to direct as He sees fit. Today I need to call myself out for not following what I know I must, what I hold faith in.
There are times we feel we know more than God. We think we can do more than God. We actually believe that what we want and how we want it is better than the way God can bring it to us. In fact we get so busy doing what we think is best, that there is no room for God to come into our lives at all.... Read More
They say that we are born alone and that we die alone. Though there may be many gathered around us at these two seminal events, we are the ones being born and who are doing the dying, the rest are spectators. And between these two bookends of life lie the many people whom we encounter along the journey, people who motivate, inspire, discourage and disparage—heroes and villains. Your life is like a novel and the people in it are characters. I have tried to categorize these people:
Motivators: Children, spouses, extended family – those you have to struggle to give life to, to protect,... Read More
RECALCITRANT BULL? RIGINAL.
Before i start this partially true story; just a quick reflection on a couple of things. The daily news as i'm sure you'll agree would not be projected as such unless steeped in controversy and or death and destruction. Something to stir the senses and senseless? You don't agree? good, means you have a whine of your own, particularly if you own a vineyard.
Pertaining to senseless. Child safety 'expert' defends his org's stance on why this Christmas children should not sit on Santa's knee. Read into it what you will. If CS has its way children will have... Read More
I will learn from my mistakes and not defend them....we spend so much defending our mistakes, hiding from them...rather than saying woo...wow what was I thinking? Why do we not say..this is my mistake and I am going to clean up my side of the street. Our mistakes are our best teacher...take them , embrace them, and let them instruct you in the lessons you need to learn. There is purpose in mistakes. I am not a bad person, but I do make mistakes...so I am going to take them, look at the reasons behind them, and then find the truth within this that I need to acknowledge to myself.... Read More
When all that matters are subjected to scrutiny with no ill intentions, then it is all the more necessary, to behold the best reasons to answer your queries. The best holds the best and the best is to hold the best in you, at the worst time…There is no finale, for the journey of life you commenced with...Life itself is a grand finale... Entire creation of universe holds the truth, that your existence cannot be denied…In your existence lives your hope…your dreams. You are a truth, that can never be eliminated…that can never be destroyed…that can never be erased.
Unquestioningly, you... Read More
As a young man, I looked ahead to the end of my life and saw nothing but a black abyss, and deep within my soul I silently cried out, "NO! This can't happen!" I could not bear the thought of being extinguished like a lonely candle on a rainy night. I sensed that there had to be more to life... that there must be a way beyond this mortal realm... I hoped I would find the way, but did not know where to look. Though I was raised agnostic, to me that only meant that I had not yet found something that I could believe in. I deeply wanted to have hope, but I was coming up empty.
Beyond the... Read More
