I Wonder…Do You?

I Wonder...Do You?

Just watched another fantastic fairytale: Rise of the Guardians!  As usual I am so entirely enveloped, that to even explain what I experience while watching such a tale (or reading one) is to invite slight puzzlement as most see such tales as simple child’s play.  Yet there is a “deep magic” in myth, undeniable truth, […]

Phosphoresent Christians

Phosphoresent Christians

When I was a child I discovered that great thrills could be found in cereal boxes.  Oh, the treasure of the buried toy in my Cinnamon Toast Crunch!  My favorite cereal box collection of all was a phosphorescent solar system.  I collected planets, stars and space ships that glowed in the dark.  I then carefully […]

A Poopy Diaper

A Poopy Diaper

My son is about nine months old and he is not yet potty trained.  When he was younger he couldn’t really stand to have a poopy diaper.  It was really quite amazing.  As soon as he would finish taking care of business he would look at you with pleading eyes saying, “Please take this smelly […]

Charismatic With Seatbelts

Charismatic With Seatbelts

So, this morning on the way to work I was worshiping with what has been my favorite worship CD for at least four months now.  No exaggeration there!  The Hill Song United – Live in Miami double CD download has been in my CD player in my car for at least four months.  Anyway, there […]

Perspective

Perspective

As I stood there in the arena beneath the bleachers equipped in my fight gear, taking a break from warming up, I looked out towards the cage and beheld time.  The announcer was introducing a karate star of old.  In his prime he had won multiple titles including several world karate championship titles.  He had […]

Good is to Faithful as Wicked is to…

Good is to Faithful as Wicked is to…

In one of Jesus’ parables there are three servants who are each given a large portion of money to care for while their master is away. The first servant receives what equates to about a 100 years worth of wages. The second servant receives about 40 years worth of wages. The third receives about 20 […]

You Are Called….A Letter

You Are Called....A Letter

Did you know that you are a walking letter?  In 2 Corinthians Paul uses the theme of letters to describe those who have taken hold of the freedom given them by the life of Christ.  By the sacrifice of Jesus and through your acceptance of His gift, Christ has writ large freedom on your heart.  […]

You Are Called….SALT

You Are Called....SALT

“Remember Lot’s wife! Whoever tries to keep his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life will preserve it.” When I read this and meditated on it a bit, I had a great hardy chuckle.  Jesus must have been a hoot to hang out with while here on Earth!  From the various records we […]

Asahel

Asahel

I have read about Asahel before and I had always identified with him because he was fast. I loved track and I imagine that Asahel would have too. But when God guided me to identify with the death of Asahel I was, needless to say, quite confused. “Now Asahel was as fleet-footed as a wild […]

Live, With a Cap L

Live, With a Cap L

I had a dream the other night about the end of the world.  How much longer do we have?  None of us knows exactly.  The real question that you must ask yourself is, “How much longer do I have?”  Again, the answer is the same, but at once the impact should be far more sudden, […]

God Math

God Math

Jesus never seemed to be too good at math.  When the man came to Him and asked, “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”  Jesus gave the questioner one answer, plus another, but made them equal, effectively calling two one!  In the feeding of the 5,000 and then the 4,000 we again are […]

Bread Alone

Bread Alone

I am a small business owner.  Last night my wife and I discussed a realization that I had, shortly after I began to pursue my dream.  “This thing is uncertain, no matter how tight my business plan.  Regardless of the contracts I secure now I have no guarantee that in nine months I will be […]
