Quiet Time Musings: June 12, 2014

A critical spirit obscures God’s truth. I have a pet peeve regarding contemporary Christian music.  I intensely dislike being yelled at, and I find it irritating when hearing one ‘artist’ pretty much lets you know what the majority of the others will sound and act like as well. I love good jazz.  Always have.  Any … Continue reading »

#6: DON’T JUST COMPETE; BE BEING YOUR BEST

  “28 Ways To Absolutely NAIL ‘Tremendous’, hunh?” That’s right. “And this is the sixth one?”  The Weird is strong in this one. That would be correct, yes. “Well, where’s the first five?”   O Lord, a little extra patience drizzled over my clenched teeth might be in order. . . They’re in the 2nd Cup … Continue reading »

Quiet Time Musings: June 9, 2014

As I read it, my mind left skidmarks next to it. IN ORDER TO GET FROM WHAT WAS TO WHAT WILL BE, YOU MUST GO THROUGH WHAT IS. No, I mean tire-smoking, stinking-rubber-smell FULL HALT. Wait.  What?

QUIET TIME MUSINGS: June 6, 2014

God puts up with me. That may come as a real shock, considering I’m such a sterling example of one of His kids.  Don’t I routinely read my Bible?  Am I not conscientious in trying to live my days according to what it teaches?  Do I not consistently reach out to those who are hurting, making … Continue reading »

QUIET TIME MUSINGS: June 5, 2014

Quiet Time Musings:  For those who follow Church stuff, this Sunday celebrates the first intentional group-on-one direct encounter with God, the Holy Spirit.  As I woke I was asking His direction for this visit with you.  I began thinking, composing in my mind, and true to form, the Holy Spirit began directing.  Here are this morning’s … Continue reading »

#5: RELAX & RETHINK

I ran across this statement the other day. Sometimes the best thing you can do is not think, not wonder, not imagine, not obsess. Just breathe, and have faith that everything will work out for the best. I already know you hard-driving types are stomping up and down the aisle wondering how to get a … Continue reading »
