Take Two

A period of great spiritual turmoil entered my life in my mid-twenties a half-century ago. Soon, God gave me the gift of repentance from sin, lust, and lawlessness. It was a wondrous experience, an exit from an old world to a new – a fresh start. I had arrived...

I Want You To Know

You’ve heard the saying, “I wouldn’t wish this on my worst enemies.” Well, it so turns out that those who rejected what good and best I wanted for them, which is what this song is about, walked away and became the worst of my enemies. They were the worst of my enemies...

Got Nothin’ To Live For

An existence void of knowing God’s Presence is a miserable one, especially when one believes there must be a Personal God in Heaven Who governs all things. Without experiencing God’s Presence, you can wonder what’s wrong with you. Why won’t He talk to you? Where is...

Do or Die

Doing and dying is the crisis or critical reality we live in, moment by moment, 24/7, all our lives. That reality is a constant choice of telling the truth or lying. Our spirits before God must be doing one or the other. It doesn’t matter if we’re doing business,...

From The Mountaintop

I’m speaking from another world, another dimension, a parallel universe, a “twilight zone,” if you will, from God’s Kingdom. Yes, I live here on earth as somewhat of a normal human being, in a world I was born into like anyone else, but I also live in a world above...

There Is a Place

Aren’t we all looking for “The Place,” whether it’s the ideal home, city, country, position, feeling, knowledge, car, restaurant, resort, health, status, occupation, relationship, favor, paradise, perfection, whatever? Wouldn’t we all like to have “The Secret” to...

Farewell

Our father of faith, Abraham, was called to leave his father’s house to a land he wasn’t familiar with. His grandson Jacob had to flee for his life from his parents’ home because his mother believed his brother Esau would kill him. Jacob’s son, Joseph, was separated...

The Work of God

Ask Moses about the work of God. When God first appeared to him, Moses was so reluctant to serve Him that God got angry with him. For Moses, it was hard for 40 years all the way. The apostle Paul can tell you it isn’t easy. God didn’t discuss Paul’s calling with him...

I’d Give Anything

Many would give anything for another human being, country, cause, or coveted reward. We have diehard Catholics, Muslims, soldiers, lovers, wanna-be heroes, people thirsting for fame and fortune, some sane, some insane. It’s not unusual to find such a person, male or...

You Don’t Have To

I received most of the lyrics of this song and the melody in my sleep, the only time this has ever happened to me. It was a chorus of women singing in smooth, encouraging, instructive, caring tones. The words were meant for me. I had been feeling pressed to get things...
