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 Can See!

 

Sometimes, trying to live a good life is like playing pin the tail on the donkey; you’re blindfolded, spun around until you’re dizzy, and shoved toward the donkey. What are the odds? The thing is, if you weren’t blindfolded, and could focus on the donkey, you might waver and wobble a bit, but eventually you’d get there.

Our Way or The High Way

It’s easy to love people who do things the way we think they should do them and agree with most everything we do. And, it’s also easy to not love those who are not what we think they should be and don’t agree with us. We are quick to judge and condemn and slow to love. Read the rest of this entry »

There Are No Do-Overs

I read about a young man who had the world in his hands and allowed the coddling lies of drugs to steal it from him. He let himself be pulled into the darkest depths of addiction and nearly lost it all—a promising career in sports, his family, and if truth be known, his life. His mom told him once God must love baseball players. When he asked why she would say that, she said, “Because if He didn’t, you’d probably be dead by now.” Read the rest of this entry »
