  1. 52. Distraction(s)


    Yesterday I was on my way home from school. With the polarized lens I have for my sunglasses, I cannot clearly see the digital numbers on the clock in the truck’s radio. Yeah, just a radio, no CD player… boring! Anyway, I took my glasses off and absentmindedly set them down.

    Due to event’s being on my mind I was caught up in thinking about what felt like a thousand things all at once (who says a man can’t multitask) and after a few minutes I suddenly ...

    Psalm 119:34, “Give me understanding, and I shall keep Your law; indeed, I shall observe it with my whole heart”
    James 1:22, “Be doers of the Word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves”

  3. - Two Sides of the Cross –

    Luke 23:33, “And when they were come to the place, which is called Calvary, there they crucified Him, and the criminals, one on the right hand, and the other on the left”

    When storms are raging 'round me
    And winds are blowing fierce,
    When demon hordes attack me

    And tell Him of my woes:
    Of how the demons mock;
    My every move oppose.

    Then safe beneath His wings
    And shielded from all harm,
    Life's storms and evil things
    Cannot disturb my calm.
