Created in His Image: Eternity

I hate death. I hate funerals. I hate that time passes. It’s a topic I can’t stay on too long or I get pretty twisted up and need to go into some false reality like Pride and Prejudice or something. canigetanamen? It’s a wonder to me that I don’t feel any older than I did when I was twenty. My…

Created in His Image: Worshiper

“Do not worship any other god, for the LORD, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God.” Exodus 34:14 I wonder if I’ve ever given this enough thought. If God created us in His image, and we find that we have an innate desire to worship something, even though it’s been twisted a thousand different ways, then it stand to…

Created in His Image: Relationships

I have almost 900 friends on Facebook. Wow, you might say, 900, huh? Yeah, well, I’m popular. 🙂 But, I wouldn’t say I have 900 great relationships. I’m sure you know that.

This Formula Works

I just wrapped up teaching a six week series called “Living With Me.” Basically, we uncovered our Impostor. You know, the girl (or guy) inside your head who always counters the truth of God, or that voice inside your head who wants the entire world to be about you and how you feel. Yea, that person. What do we do…

Over Thinking? Hmm, Can We do That?

I’m a thinker. It’s how I’m wired. Oh, of course, I laugh and cry and what-not, but when it comes to processing anything, it goes through an extensive system of thought. Pipes of pondering, I’d say. Thoughts about one concept, problem, or anything really, can travel down the pipes of my mind for days, if not weeks! Nothing wrong with…

The Arrogance of Unbelief

I’ll keep this brief because I myself am still processing, seeing as how I just realized this yesterday. Maybe I should say that God showed me this just yesterday. In a nutshell (after searching the Word and my heart) here is what I realized, er, He showed me: My lack of faith, my unbelief, has the potential to make God…
