I love to read novels. Political thrillers are my favorite. In these stories it is common for special trained agents to risk life and limb for the service of their country. These heros are constantly placed in life threatening situations to accomplish perilous assignments. As I read through their trouble, I’m tempted to peek ahead in the book to find out what happens. Sometimes I do. Continue reading “How To Get Through Trouble…”
Who needs a miracle?
Yesterday that question was posed at my church and 70% of the congregation raised their hand. My wife and I were part of that number. So, who doesn’t require a miracle? I mean if when asked, 70% of approximately 300 answers in the affirmative, that tells me that you, the reader, have a 7 in 10 chance of wanting, if not needing a miracle.

What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals. Zig Ziglar
Okay readers, I’m going to let you in on a personal ambition of mine–actually three. Three things I’ll be working toward for the remainder of 2017. For reasons that will become clear, I’m calling these goals The 500/500/500 Vision.
By December 31st, I want this site to achieve the following: Continue reading “Three Goals for this Blog…”
Lazarus is dead!
What will I do without him? He was so important to me. Now he lays in a tomb behind a stone. Continue reading “Raising God’s Glory…”
Jesus is in a flux. The talk of Him replacing Herod did not sit well. We have been separated from the people and their talk of conspiracy.
It is late, but Jesus is insistent. “Go to the other side, now!” Continue reading “A Storm Between Two Miracles…”
It’s a beautiful day in Jerusalem. We came down for the festival. People are celebrating in the streets, in the Inns and outside the Temple. But I am with Jesus.
At Bethesda, Jesus has forgone the celebrating and walks among the sick. It’s a horrific sight. The beggars and the lame, the blind and the gaunt, are all here by the pool, looking for healing. Continue reading “Do You Want To Get Well?”
We are anything but united.
Our government has become a forum of disagreement rather than progress, where hate is replacing debate, vitriol replacing decorum, and idiology replacing patriotism. Continue reading “United States?”
In 1969, Frank Sinatra recorded the big hit My Way. It climbed the charts in America and sat at number one in the U.K. for 75 weeks. It was recorded by other big artists including Elvis Presley. It is a song of reflection, of how a life was lived.
When I look back at most of my life, my successes and failures, this song could be my anthem. A memorial to who I was. No matter what I see, I can testify, it was my way. Continue reading “My Way?”
First let me tell you how much I appreciate your dropping in to read what I write. I know it’s getting to be a cliche, but I am humbled by your readership.
The fact that people from China, India, England and Kenya (to name a few) have come here just blows my mind. God gets all the Glory because after all, it was his idea.
Now I’m going to ask for yours. I would like for you to send me any topic you would like me to cover within the theme of the site, Faith-Politics-Christian Living, etc…
If you twist my arm, I might consider SEC football and it’s dominance of the NCAA. (Can’t wait for the mail on that).
Just go to the contact page and send me an email. Your address is safe from marketers or the public in general.
Thanks for your response in advance.
Words That Encourage God…
I love football! I’m not sure I’m what you call a rabid fan, but I am a noisy one.
The pageantry and tradition; the competition and my regional attachment is what draws me to the teams I follow. Continue reading “Words, Part 3”
