Some writers love a blank screen. Imagine all the possibilities. Some writers cringe at the thought. What could they possibly write? When I considered returning to my computer after lunch today, I had just an iota of dread about returning to my latest writing project. Where would I go next with it – or not? But then I considered my…

Ever heard the expression, “Expect the Best’? I have not only heard the expression numerous times, but I have fallen flat on my face from expecting the best – from humans. In fact, I just shared with someone I know how disappointed I have been lately in how many of my expectations have not been met – by people, by…

Listen, debate, and obey. God did not speak these words to me today. He told me to listen and obey. I have such a very long way to go in learning to listen, and an equally long way it seems in learning to obey. But most of all, I need to learn how to listen and obey without debating.What exactly…

Have you ever felt far away from God? I do. I have heard it said, “God didn’t move. You did.” I know God hasn’t moved. But I am not sure I have moved either. I am reminded that the faith walk is not about what we see with our human eyes or what we feel with our human emotions. So…

I’m under attack. I’m under attack. I’m under attack. Yes, I know I’m repeating myself. I might as well repeat myself in writing. I certainly have repeated myself verbally – for years. I’m under attack. I’m under attack. I know. You get the point. So do my friends who have prayed for me for so very long. They have prayed…

But God I don’t wanna love. Ever been there? He hurt me. She hurt me. I didn’t get what I want. I was taken advantage of. Look what they did to me. C’mon God, surely I don’t need to love that person. Right? But God – I was there again this morning. How could that person do this? What about…

“That man is crazy,” I thought. “Totally crazy.” That man, I confess, just so happens to be a wonderful pastor friend of mine from a local church. And not only did I think the man was crazy, but I told him just minutes ago over the telephone. “I thought you were crazy,” I told the pastor. Crazy? Who are you…

Obedience is not the be-all, end-all that I thought it was, or is it? It certainly is not. Just last week, I thought I had hit the home run of all runs – not that I know the first, or second, or even third thing about baseball. But suffice it to say, I did believe since I had achieved the…

Wow. I never would have guessed when I began a 40-day different-kind-of-a-fast exactly 40 days ago that it would end right on Passover and Easter, nor could I ever have imagined what the Lord would do in this longer-than-I-have-ever-taken fast. I thank God for the pastor who advised me months ago to fast something in my life of great value…

“Do you know something?” I told four of my Walk by Faith Ministry dogs today. Not that Red, Jake, Traveler, and Joshua wanted to hear the answer. I, of course, proceeded anyway.”I am so happy today. And I don’t have the things that I wanted. But I have Jesus.” The dogs, of course, did not respond. But my heart danced…
