Strive

Angela dropped the phone down in its cradle and put her head in her hands. This was not going well. Her client was untenable. They wanted to renegotiate a very lucrative contract, and not in her company's favor. She looked out the window of her corner office on the 13th floor.

Who Do You Love?

It is so much easier to stay angry, peeved or put out. It helps us walk through the problem with a sense of self righteousness…. get that? “Self” + “Right.” Clearly, as noted in the clip above of Jesus in the Passion of The Christ it is that very human choice which we are advised … Continue reading Who Do You Love?

Love Like That: Grace-Full ~by Dr. Les Parrot

“Therefore, I tell you, her many sins have been forgiven—as her great love has shown. But whoever has been forgiven little loves little.” Luke‬ ‭7:47‬ ‭ We seem to be on a cosmic quest to establish our value—to prove it, earn it, deserve it.

A Young Man, A New Country and a Lifelong Impact – reblogged from the Jerusalem Post

Several years ago I too travelled to Israel, the beautiful land, and spent 10 amazing days there.  The impact was palpable; spiritual.  If my faith was ever weak before, it became Technicolor, 3-D and active.  It is indeed God's Land.  Amen and amen.

In Defense of Miracles…

"Unless you people see signs and wonders," Jesus told him, "you will never believe." John 4:48 This weekend a friend of mine recommended I watch the movie "Miracles From Heaven."  I usually avoid the sappy feel-good stuff because I suspect Hollywood is trying to pull on my heart-strings to make cash...that said, this friend - … Continue reading In Defense of Miracles…
