Quiet Time Musings for 6/30/14: IT’S JUST A CROSS… WHAT’S THE BIG DEAL?

Hmm.  Woke up this morning thinking about the phrase, “I have been crucified with Christ.”  No, I didn’t at some point crawl up there on that rough wood and have my extremities spiked to it, bleed out and die. It would have meant nothing beyond the death of just one more man. The difference is … Continue reading »

Quiet Time Musings for 6/28/14: “THESE AREN’T MY SHOES!”

  You’ve heard almost all of ’em as I have. WALK AWHILE IN MY SANDALS BEFORE YOU CRITICIZE OR JUDGE ME. There are a couple hundred variations on that theme.  Its basic truth remains:  “You aren’t walking my path nor traveling on my journey.    Minding your own business is a full-time job.  Stay employed.” … Continue reading »

Quiet Time Musings for 6/26/14: MAKING A PET OUT OF GOD

  From a Heaven’s-Eye perspective, we must be amusing to The Almighty. Even while saying all the ‘right’ things declaring our fealty to Him there’s already a litigious part of our brain poring over the fine print, looking for loopholes. God knows all this.  He knows me.  More to the point, He knows you.  Mm-hmmph.  … Continue reading »

Quiet Time Musings for 6/25/14: BEEN HUR?

I wasn’t very proud of myself after that event. It was during my senior year of high school.  Our mixed ensemble was singing for some local gathering, and since it was my last time singing with that group I quietly arranged for us to stand in such a way that I’d hog attention. What?  Too … Continue reading »

Quiet Time Musings for 6/21/14: I’VE WATCHED GOD WORK

As a kid I remember hearing somebody respond to a need with, “Well, I’ll be praying about that with you.”  I usually thought, “What good will that do?” Big deal.  It wasn’t that I was disrespectful or doubted God’s ability.  I didn’t know very much about Him, so didn’t understand.  After all, when you’re a kid and … Continue reading »

Quiet Time Musings – 6/19/14: LOOKING THROUGH A FRIEND’S EYES

  You know how you talk when just blabbing with a friend?  I was. Good friends let you speak without needing translation just as you do them.  Right?  You’re talking a mile a minute with gusts up to—well, you get it.  I was just talking – just talking – yet something I said, or more … Continue reading »

Quiet Time Musings – 6/18/14: I BOWED ON MY KNEES AND CRIED, “_________”.

We hear it every Christmas.  “HALLELUJAH!  FOR THE LORD GOD OMNIPOTENT REIGNS!” It’s on every radio station, religious or secular, for-profit or public.  We even call it by it’s first word:  The HALLELUJAH Chorus.  Many commentators – again, religious or secular – recite its origin from Handel’s larger majestic work, The Messiah.  And we all … Continue reading »

A LITTLE TUTORIAL ON TIME

  Good morning. Imagine there is a bank account that credits your account each morning with $86,400.  It carries over no balance from day to day.  Every evening the bank deletes whatever part of the balance you failed to use during the day.   What would you do?  Obvious answer:  draw out every cent every … Continue reading »

Quiet Time Musings: Monday, 6/16/14 – ARE YA TIRED?

It starts out, “Are you tired?” My immediate and indignant response:  “DO BLUEJAYS HAVE A BIG MOUTH?  Sir?  (Sorry, Lord–you caught me by surprise, there, and I, ah. . .” God:  “I can see how that might happen.  After all, that teaching has only been extant for, say, a couple thousand years.” “Hey, wait!  Hold … Continue reading »

Quiet Time Musings for June 13, 2014: YOU THINK YOU’RE SO GOOD!

They say it like it’s a bad thing:  “Oh, you just think you’re SO GOOD!” It’s the expressions that are so fun.  As if their words no longer have intrinsic meaning and must be accompanied by that cute little wrinkling of the upper lip and bobbing their heads back and forth.  See?  You think it’s … Continue reading »
