“Be strong and of good courage.”  That’s what Joshua heard, over and over again.  “Psst…  Joshua!  Be strong and o— “Yeah-yeah-yeah–be strong and of good courage.  Got the 4-1-1, Lord.  What gives, though?  Why do you keep telling me this?” “Well, Josh, since you asked. . .” I hate it when having one of those … Continue reading »

QTMs for 9/26/15: GOD’S WAKE-UPS COME AT THE WEIRDEST TIMES

You’re not alone.  God said so. He woke me up this morning at 3:17.  I laid there, praying for His intervention and protection in your life, because I felt the nudge of the Holy Spirit to pray protection over and around you and those closest to you.

A 2nd Cup PSA: WRITTEN BY A COP

It’s not a very friendly world out there.  Predators have been encouraged by enforced, even celebrated lawlessness to more openly ply their trade.  The continuing lunacy of political correctness all but guarantees they’ll be seen as victims or even folk heroes while the brave LE people standing between them and the rest of us risk … Continue reading »

QTMs for 9/21/15: KEEPING SHORT ACCOUNTS WITH GOD

“Infuse my body, soul, and spirit with Your grace. Give me a soft and obedient heart that yields readily to Your will.

Q(uiet) T(ime) M(usings) for 9/19/15: BE A FOUNTAIN, NOT A DRAIN

“Is there something wrong with your order?” The manager training a new employee had learned to assume the worst.  After all, people who’ve already been given their pizza don’t usually stand around, politely waiting for her to finish her instructions as to how to correctly input product and service codes. It’s a demanding task; those … Continue reading »

QTMs for 9/17/15: SO YOU THINK YOU CAN CHALLENGE GOD…

“Who could confront me and get by with it?  I’m in charge of all this—I run this universe!” That’s what Job heard when he’d whined that God wasn’t paying attention to Job’s problems, had ignored his plight and evidently had singled him out to be Heaven’s whipping post. Attributing human traits to God doesn’t work.  … Continue reading »

Sunday QTMs, 9/13/15: A Self-Awareness Exercise from 2000

Notes from my Clinical Pastoral Education Level II journal: “My values are not complicated, though they are Biblically based.  Where God has clearly spoken in Scripture, I as a minister of His Gospel must stand with and for God. “However, I must stand in His love, and in respect for those whose spiritual understanding differs … Continue reading »
