“Pain Is Weakness Leaving The Body” Easy Hard Things Pt 1

5and you have forgotten the exhortation which is addressed to you as sons,             “MY SON, DO NOT REGARD LIGHTLY THE DISCIPLINE OF THE LORD,             NOR FAINT WHEN YOU ARE REPROVED BY HIM; 6FOR THOSE WHOM THE LORD LOVES HE DISCIPLINES,             AND HE SCOURGES EVERY SON WHOM HE RECEIVES.” 7It is for discipline that you endure;…

Choosing My Lane

"The heart of man deviseth his way, And Jehovah establisheth his step." Proverbs 16:9 I have the opportunity to run for county commissioner for my district. There are parts of the job that I could do well.  However, if I am honest with myself, there is a lot of the job that frankly is not…

Gut Check: Enemies

"Have I any pleasure at all that the wicked should die? saith the Lord God: and not that he should return from his ways and live?" Ez 18:23   Ah. There's a gut check for us. Are we wanting our enemies to die or to be saved?

I’ll Take An Order of God With A Side of Universe Pt 3

  Still with me?  Are you, hopefully, beginning to grasp the immensity of the problem? If you need one more push, consider that, according to some string theorists, there would need to be 10^500 additional universes than this one to explain the incredibly intricate systems of our universe. That is: 10000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000 00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000 00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000 00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000 00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000…

I Want My Own Farm

  The Lord has cattle on a thousand hills. (Psalm 50:10).  Every good and perfect gift comes from the Lord (James 1:17).  We must not be anxious for food or clothing (Matthew 6:31-32).  If we seek Him above all else, He will provide everything we need (Luke 12:31).  He will give me everything I need…

Our Spirit: Not a Theoretical Concept

A quick reminder/encouragement: The spirit is not some hocus-pocus, theoretical concept, but a part of our actual selves.  If it was not, then we would not be saved through Jesus.  If we had no spirit, we would have no need of spiritual salvation--our death would be the true end of our existence, like the death…
