I’m Workin’ On It.

Lord, I’m wondering why my situation’s still unresolved. I’ve prayed. I’ve behaved. I’ve read the Bible. I know you’re faithful. So whats the hold up? “I’m workin’ on it.” Father, I see more and more hatred, confusion, and depression in the news and in the country....

Pity the Fool

Mr. T had a point. Foolishness is pitiful. The problem is, like us, he’s assuming it’s somebody else. Nobody would admit to being a fool. Yet the Book of Wisdom describes foolishness at length with multiple verses, implying fools do indeed exist. Adjectives like...

Ever Seen A Miracle

Today

Got a place to live, plenty to eat, and people who love you? Maybe you wish you had a nicer place, an unlimited diet, or that person hadn’t hurt you. For now, turn your thoughts away from that. Right now. Do it. Did you do it? There are so many reasons to be...

You Graduated! Now What?!

It’s the most common question asked of recent graduates: “Now what?” It’s a reasonable question and it looks like this: “Are you getting a job?” or “Are you moving up to the next degree level?” Or my favorite, “Are you finally moving out of your parents’ basement?”...
