We all Deserve to be Cancelled. Yet we Live.

There is something freeing about accepting the fact that none of us really matter that much. Not in the grand scheme of things. “Man is like to vanity. His days are as a shadow that passes away.” Yet, we are alive. Do we really appreciate that fact? We exist. Just sitting still with that thoughtContinue reading “We all Deserve to be Cancelled. Yet we Live.”

Can a Christian Walk After the Spirit of God Alone?

This is a question I have been thinking about. I know someone who received the Holy Spirit several years ago, and their walk in the Spirit has been very up and down. There are times when this person believes they were freed from a sin issue, just to later have that same sin take themContinue reading “Can a Christian Walk After the Spirit of God Alone?”

Moving Away from Cancel Culture toward Connection – Reblog from In My Father’s House

Last time I talked about how we do have some commonality with people who may have a different worldview than ours. Today I want to look at how we can navigate a potentially combative conversation to come to some sort of agreement, maybe even win the other person over to our point of view. AsContinue reading “Moving Away from Cancel Culture toward Connection – Reblog from In My Father’s House”

Choosing Which Burdens to Carry

Life is full of difficult scenarios, and sometimes knowing what to do can be trying because there are multiple perspectives to take on the issue. One perspective might mean doing one thing. Another perspective might mean doing the opposite. Both could be true and good, depending on the timing. For example, I do believe thatContinue reading “Choosing Which Burdens to Carry”

One Thing We Can Do

We each have our own life to sort out, and hopefully we do so through a veil of healthy fear of the Lord. We each need to hear what the Lord is speaking to us in this time. I don’t know what the right thing to do is for us collectively as Christians. I doContinue reading “One Thing We Can Do”

How Can We Just Keep Living A Normal Life?

Things just don’t feel right. Do they? It feels strange to me to just keep going with life as normal. It feels strange to keep with my long-term education plans for my kids so they can succeed when the world they are living in is dying. It feels strange to keep working as a contentContinue reading “How Can We Just Keep Living A Normal Life?”

Considering Proverbs 10:15

15 The rich man’s wealth is his strong city: the destruction of the poor is their poverty. This is a good proverb about the vanity and foolishness of man. When we are financially secure, we fool ourselves into thinking that we are safe. We can rest easy, knowing that our bills are going to be paid,Continue reading “Considering Proverbs 10:15”

17 And he came down with them, and stood in the plain, and the company of his disciples, and a great multitude of people out of all Judaea and Jerusalem, and from the sea coast of Tyre and Sidon, which came to hear him, and to be healed of their diseases; 18 And they that were vexedContinue reading “The Parables of Jesus: Building on Rock and Sand”
