A journey of discovery

Dinner Table

I was pondering the idea of surrender verses suppression, yes again. I can’t shake this one so I know God has a strong message for me and hopefully you. When we live in fear, out of obligation we tend to suppress stuff instead of surrendering it. Grace says we get to bring it to God.…

Willing to Trust

I once heard this story by Andrian Rogers.  He was a great preacher from Memphis who could really bring a message.  He told a story about a trip he took to Johnson Space Center in Houston, TX.  There are a lot of really smart people at JSC.  Adrian met a PhD physicist and struck up a conversation. …

Surgery

Have you ever had surgery? I prefer supernatural miraculous healing but sometimes there is stuff inside us that needs to be removed or fixed. When that happens, the doctor goes in with a really sharp instrument and cuts out the thing that doesn’t belong. Often he takes out some stuff around it so he will…

Wisdom Stereogram

Have you ever looked at one of those stereograms before?  Here is one to look at.  So you don’t go crazy, you are looking for two dolphins jumping out of the waves.  Blow up the picture on your screen and stare “through” it while looking at the center.  Let your eyes go out of focus…

Balance What?

Three Doors

I see things so differently now.  Before I felt lost, without purpose, floundering in my hurts and hangups, desperate to find “the more.”  Now I have purpose, finally feel free and get to live the life of Christ.  I may have been “born again” years ago, but only now do I feel alive.  Much of…

Puffed up or edified?

God provided faith comes by hearing and accepting as we listen intently to the breathed utterance and loving narrative about Jesus (Rom 10:17 Lance Literal Translation). I’ve always been a left brain person. I love to figure things out. It is exciting when I have a thought or think about a problem differently and out…

Become like children

What do you think when you read a verse like this one: Matthew 18:3  (KJV)  3 And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. I know in my past I was “strongly encouraged” to REPENT!!! and be a…
