Stand Back!

cannonball2Some of you (maybe most of you) probably think I’ve gone off the deep end, and… you’re absolutely correct! As pertains to my trust and faith, I’ve gone off the high dive the way I used to at the town swimming pool as a child. I’ve got a big smile on my face, my knees are tucked up under my chin with my arms wrapped around them, and I’m about to make a big splash! Back then, it was called a cannonball, and my intent was to thoroughly soak everyone standing nearby.

This time, it’s not water I hope to soak those around me with; it’s love, peace, joy, hope, and all the good things God continues to pour out on me. So if you don’t want to get drenched in some of those things, you better stand back!

For what is our hope, or joy, or crown of rejoicing? Isn’t it even you, before our Lord Jesus at his coming? 1Thessalonians 2:19

I Need More Time!

I know it’s not true for everyone, but in this country most of us have plenty of everything. In fact, we have so much we take it all for granted. And yet, we often complain.

Too often, I catch myself grumbling when things aren’t perfect, or I want something I can’t afford. “Want” being the key word. The reality of it is I have everything I need and more! I have more than enough to eat, a house that’s too big, two nice vehicles that are always full of gas, and I can hop into either one and go just about anywhere I want to go.

Don’t Get Tangled Up In The Details

Most of us believe in the basic principles of God, but we’ve been taught different ways to think of Him and worship Him. And that’s okay, unless our differences are due to “human tradition and the basic principles of this world.” God wants us to be held captive by Christ and His love for us—a simple relationship.
