I have written a lot about the issues I have had at my J-O-Bs.

The image of myself I developed as a result of the positions I have held over the years. Thinking less of myself because I don’t carry a brief case or use a stethoscope and I don’t own my own business.  From an early age our society indoctrinates us to think that kids either grow to be doctors or lawyers or, really any job that requires the wearing of a tie, or you’re a loser.

Something that I have struggled with for years is my own direction and the thing is the answer has always been right in from of me.

Pick a Direction and Go!

I love Sunday mornings – always have, always will.

I like the early morning hours every day but there is something about Sunday that – to me – is special, and it is not attending a church service.

At least not always.

I believe that it was my spending time alone on Sunday mornings as a child that opened my eyes to the reality of a creator and God used that time to reveal himself to me even before I ever read a single word in the bible. (more…)

Wow! I made it to 100.

The amazingly sad thing about that is that I should have gotten here a long time ago. My last post was back in November and the last time there was substance was October. More on that in a minute. (more…)

It is not always easy to follow God. This is a lesson I learned – ironically as  I taught it this morning.

Jesus knew the final outcome of his mission here on Earth. He knew that he would ascend to glory and sit at God’s right hand. He was with God when the plan was devised. He helped implement it from the beginning but he had to go through Hell to get there – literally.

Some time ago, I wrote about how our faith, according to Paul, can be shipwrecked but that I do not believe that means were rendered permanently useless. I believe that God uses that time – if we allow him – to help us grow and to teach us what we need to learn. Obviously, we can be obstinate and miss God’s lesson but that is our doing not his. You can read that post here.

How often do we confuse what is important with that which is not?

For me, it’s every day. I am constantly looking for ways to improve my outlook, my situation my job.

My life.

It seems I often do it under the guise of serving God and bringing him glory but it’s not about that. Not in my heart. Not really. It’s about me. It’s what I want to do. It’s how I want to live. It’s how I want to be.

55834-thFor several weeks now, I have been limiting my Friday posts to the more intuitive, less structured side of my writing and to be honest today I was dry, done spent.

This week,  I have been flat, tired, disinterested and and just plain frustrated with life. Usually I find those times to be a veritable playground for free expression – not so this week.

In Luke’s gospel, Jesus is quoted saying “For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also (Luke 12:34 KJV).” In this verse he’s referring to what we pay attention to or where our priorities lie determines how or where we spend our time and live our lives.

I am not going to argue that – I mean Jesus said it, right?
