Here are three phrases I’m thinking about. Maybe you have answers for me.
If “love never fails” (1 Corinthians 13:8), what fails in so many previously loving relationships?
The Bible says, “resist the devil, and he will flee from you” (James 4:8), but then how come – like my friend Mandy says – “Satan gets in my head and screws with me like it’s his full-time job”?
“If you don’t do what you know is right, you have sinned” (James 4:17). Based on my procrastination alone, how long would the lists be of those sins?
I’m turning 50 this week.
I’m not yet fifty — it’s just one day away — but I thought I’d lead you through my journey, and maybe you’ll learn a thing or two that will help you on your journey.

There are days when I live like a practical atheist.
Not that I don’t care about God, but that I don’t even think about God.

Who will we trust in the calamities of life?

“Fell On Black Days“
Whatsoever I’ve feared has
Come to life
Whatsoever I’ve fought off
Became my life
Just when everyday
Seemed to greet
Me with a smile
Sunspots have faded
And now I’m doing time
Cause I fell on
