You are not Strong Enough!

 

What does it mean to “seek God’s Strength?” Is He going to supernaturally make us 100 times stronger physically, emotionally, or spiritually? Can I say, “God, I need to pick up this boulder, give me the strength?” I don’t think that is what Scripture means when it says to seek God’s strength. Do You?

We all like to quote the verse, 1 Corinthians 10:13, especially...

Spiritual Judgment Versus Criticism



What determines the difference between mean-spirited criticism and spiritual judgment? Love! Mean-spirited criticism is never an act of love; it is a self-righteous demeaning, attitude of “thinking oneself better than the other person.” I like to c...

Writer's Block: A Story



I was confined to my chair, forced to remain seated, trapped by my own invention. Every second writhed with the knowledge of overwhelming intrusion. I could see them, hear them, feel them. Imagine the excruciating pain they would inflict upon me...

My Next Fifty Years

I remember when I thought fifty was ancient. Not only was everyone over the hill, but I was positive their usefulness in life was limited. Now, on the other side of fifty, I realize my foolishness.
