Last night we enjoyed a spectacular Mammatus cloud (think mammary). The sunset created a jaw-dropping color and gave it incredible depth. My mother asked me what I thought when I saw it. That was easy. "The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork." (Psalm 19:1) The heavens declare the … Continue reading The Heavens Declare!
Promises of blessings. Promises of curses. The bible is full of these. For a reason. God calls us to return to him. Mostly, we ignore him, particularly his rod of correction. You see, nothing happens without God's knowledge. Both good things and bad. Both point you to Him. As for the good things, "...God's kindness … Continue reading The Rod of Correction
Someone dear to me has a roommate with severe depression. Anyone who has been in these shoes knows how hard it is to see someone in trouble yet refuse your offer to get help. The painful reality is that to improve, you gotta want it. It's one thing to neglect doing dishes because of depression. … Continue reading You Gotta Want It.
Sometimes I wonder why I write my blog. Several days a week, I compose a message to any who will read it. Honestly, if I was doing this for positive reinforcement, I wouldn't. Why? Because I would be discouraged at how few people respond. So, why do I do it? I write because of what … Continue reading Why Do I Do It?
Yesterday, I wrote about the Texas Abortion Law. Same with the day before. Why am I so adamant about getting this message across? Honestly, it is a source of division even within my family. I'm the nut-job, religious freak who keeps bringing Jesus into the conversation. People tend to avoid that. Why won't I just … Continue reading Just Let It Go
The Texas Abortion Law is really stirring up the Facebook feed. One sarcastic comment from a man I don't know posed an "impossible" question. Suppose you are in a fertility clinic when suddenly there is a life-threatening fire and you are able to either save an 8-year-old child or a vial of 1,000 embryos. Either … Continue reading Texas Abortion Law
It sounds like the Supreme Court of the United States will allow a new Texas law to go into effect. The law will prohibit providers from performing an abortion once a fetal heartbeat is detected. No exceptions are provided. Some people are very happy. Some, like President Biden and Vice-President Harris, are outraged. "My body, … Continue reading My Body, My Choice.
You'll have to take my word on this, but I'm not as young as I used to be. I forget things. If I'm made in God's image (Genesis 1:26), does that mean God ages, too? Does God forget? We won't get far to explain all that here today. Suffice it to say that God always … Continue reading Does God Forget?
It's hard to be unanimous. All you need to prove this is to put two people in a car at lunchtime. When it comes to a decision of significant importance, unanimity is almost unheard of. Christians are no different that the rest of the world. Of all people, why can't we all agree? Let me … Continue reading Why Can’t We All Agree?
Have you seen the video that shows a man getting struck TWICE by lightning? Supposedly, he intended to rob a couple that had just walked by him. Whether or not that is true, people like to believe it. We like the idea of karma when justice is being served. Did you ever wonder who administers … Continue reading Karma
