• Ruined Religion

    26 October, 2018

    Religion can be the enemy of God. ~ Bono Jesus was well accustomed to conflict. His eyes could see the glaringly obvious that men in their pride were blind too. Worship is in vain when it is constructed upon the things of me, the head is present but the heart is far away. (See Mark 7:1-8) Mankind…...[read more]

  • Grave Control#

    11 October, 2018

    These thoughts come from the green side of the grass, and are now poignant reflections of a Godly man who had gained that heart of wisdom: When all is said and done we humans are really children in a world plagued by sickness, loneliness and death. Control of life is as elusive as a lottery win.…...[read more]

  • When Relationships Burn

    24 September, 2018

    Don't try to fix me, I am not broken. ~ anon. Accusation and argument awakens the proud heart, but steals another's joy. These are thieves to love, crushers of spirits and damp blankets to smother harmony. Persistent argument establishes its own rule of division. Love cannot increase. The…...[read more]

  • Hijacking Harmony

    23 September, 2018

    Division isn't just a maths problem. It's also humanities! ~ Anthony T. Hincks Consider God's intervention at the Tower of Babel.

  • The Empty Man

    The longings of the righteous will be satisfied. The anxious heart weighs a man down. Heartache crushes the spirit. A crushed spirit who can bear? A crushed spirit dries up the bones. BUT... The Lord saves those crushed in spirit, and a bruised reed He does not break. To those crushed in spirit…...[read more]

  • Not On God's Radar

    30 July, 2018

    Performance reviews are now de rigeur in industry, and most professional occupations. It is a fashionable but tiresome measure of a person's value taught by the Tree of Knowledge. Harm, help or rewards are its discernible fruits. Of course, my value to my Lord is contrary. My value to my Lord…...[read more]

  • The Bedrock of the Righteous

    24 July, 2018

    I will say to myself - the Lord is my portion; therefore I will wait for Him. (Lamentations 3:24) When I am stubborn that Jesus is all I need, and am sure He is all I will have - there is nobody and nothing to pursue for my well being. He is truly my portion. I have brought my needs and my desires…...[read more]

  • Baffled by God

    14 June, 2018

    Upon an earth in open rebellion,From a heart that still leans sin's wayWith a back turned against HeavenAnd a face still set to Babylon The good Father counted my worth far greater than the death of His one SonI ponder inside and can see no reasonSalvation is so much more than I can understand.…...[read more]
