BLEEDING ON ONE’S NOTEBOOK: “IT HURTS.”

Waiting on God is not for weanies. No personal, private details.  Most are just curious.

100-Word Stroll for 9/8/16: . . . AND YOU WON’T BELIEVE—

You wouldn’t believe the “YOU-WON’T-BELIEVE”s I’ve clicked on. You, too?  Well, you clicked on this one, right?  I know.  Shameless.  Right up there with “YOU’LL SEE WHY”.  Uh-hunh.  Grinning.  You’ve clicked on that one, too.    John wrote about overcoming at least seven times in a row.  Paul wrote a lot about being an overcomer.  George … Continue reading »

100-Word Strolls for 8/20/16: NOT SO FAST, THERE, BUB

The meme reads, “The devil doesn’t come dressed in a red cape and pointy horns.  He comes as everything you’ve ever wished for.  Pray for wisdom and discernment.”  Allow this contrast:  “Trust in the Lord and do good: dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture.  Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give … Continue reading »

100-Word Stroll for 8/7/16: IT’S CALLED A BORESNAKE

When something that’s supposed to be smooth, unobstructed and clean isn’t, bad things can happen.

It took … Continue reading »

It was one of those mornings. Spiritual warriors, veteran pray-ers who are living definitions of ‘intercession’ know exactly what I’m talking about.  You’re deeply, wonderfully resting, immersed in a merciful deep sleep–when the Celestial Bat Signal garishly bounces off the back of your eyelids, making you wince like those electronic LED billboards right above Acceptance Acura … Continue reading »
