Beyond Whatever Summer Preview #1

Posted on Monday, June 25, 2012 in Uncategorized

“How’s the books going?”, many people ask.

The truth is, it hasn’t been going far or fast.

Fortunately, this summer I’m taking some time to write more of the book I’ve been writing called “Beyond Whatever.”  While I’m offline this week I would like to give you a week of previews.

Your feedback will be appreciated.

“…the eyes of the LORD are on those who fear him, on those whose hope is in his unfailing love…” (Psalm 33:18)

I worked the graveyard shift as a desk clerk in suburban Chicago. While the weekend night were often busy late into the night, many nights I had lots of free time. I was confined to a small space in a locked office behind glass. I spoke through a slot below the glass. I exchanged money and passed room keys through that small opening.

Yes, there were lonely, sleepy nights.

Alone I had several options. I watched television. I listened to music. Occasionally I napped. As a newly committed God-follower I spent hours reading my Bible.

There at the desk I spent many hours getting to know God and about God and about our world.

What I Learned

We are need of a change. Beyond “Whatever”. God isn’t changing. Our world is.

A great deal has changed since I was a child. Many things have improved since I was a child. Yet, despite all of the many hard working, kind-hearted people with good intentions our world is not getting better.

We are not more enlightened.

We need a change. We need to work together. We need a revolution of love.

We need a revolution of love.

Wouldn’t you like to trust everyone? Wouldn’t you like an end of faking & posing, pretension, lying & backstabbing? Wouldn’t you like a hassle-free life.

Wouldn’t you like people to accept you?
Wouldn’t you like people to respect you?
No more using or being used by people!

We need a revolution of love.

The problem is we’re forgetful.

Or, we have become so open-minded that our brains have nearly fallen out.

Sadly, common sense—what everyone knows is true—has become uncommon.

We need a revolution of love
