We are so lucky to live in a world of modern conveniences and multi-choices of entertainment. We are living a fine life…but what are we living for?

That’s the big question. We have homes, enough to eat, and some leisure time to enjoy life, so why aren’t we satisfied? We believe in a God and hope this Source of higher intelligence knows what’s being played out on our planet. But what are we supposed to do in the meantime? Our world is such a mess…and we are just one in a crowd of billions of people.

One_in_a_crowd_and_paranoid____by_gonzonlI sit looking out of an upstairs window and view my world below. These thoughts drift through my mind as a ribbon of morning cloud passes gently over the landscape. In the early morning quiet time, I sometimes play a game to “hear” what God wants to communicate to me. Randomly, I open up a small book of the Bible to see what shows up on the page. Today the words are modern and almost audible to me:

 

“Let me tell you why you are here. You’re here to be salt-seasoning that brings out the God-flavors of this earth. If you lose your saltiness, how will people taste godliness? You’ve lost your usefulness and will end up in the garbage.

Here’s another way to put it: You’re here to be light, bringing out the God-colors in the world. God is not a secret to be kept. We’re going public with this, as public as a city on a hill. If I make you light-bearers, you don’t think I’m going to hide you under a bucket, do you? I’m putting you on a light stand."  Matthew 5:13-15 The Message Bible

one-in-a-crowd-copySo we Christians ought to stand out in a crowd. We are supposed to be bold with our beliefs. Our values will shine out so that people notice. What’s a bowl of popcorn without salt?

No matter where we live, or what culture we live in, we want to stand up for higher principles and get noticed. We are the salt seasoning on a bland menu. We are God-colour! We’re supposed to shine God on the landscape of our realities.

By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? Matthew 7:16 NIV Bible
How do you stand out in a crowd? Let me know what YOU DO when the spotlight Is on you!

P1080185Why do we cry at funerals? They’ve gone into the light and don’t feel any pain anymore, while we weep for our loss and the regrets of what could have been. But life unfolds itself as sure as the ocean waves keep rolling in… Continue reading

crying soldierMy heart goes out to all of you who cry alone. I have been fearful too in this last year. But I have faith that great things will occur in this New Year because God knows what is happening to us…to you, to our world. So I say let’s get ready for CHANGE in 2018 because God’s laws are being written in our hearts! Every time I watch this old Youtube clip (viewed by 16.5 million people) I get misty eyed…with hope for humanity.  Continue reading

I would not have chosen to write this particular book, but the task has relentlessly pursued me throughout the diverse chapters of my life. I purposely wrote about these things in a bold way, to inspire you to think outside the box and color outside the lines.  Continue reading

LOVE NEVER FAILS? BAH!

 

Love never fails? Bah! Sometimes it fails miserably. It’s not because the nature of love isn’t powerful enough – because love can cut a swath like a laser beam through the darkest of hearts.

The word itself is just so overused we don’t recognize the real thing.

Around midnight one foggy evening, I tried to connect with the presence of God, as I stood on the edge of a bluff overlooking the Columbia River far below. Clouds covered the gorge and leveled themselves so that it seemed as though I could step out and walk upon the surface. My life also lay before me like a vast journey of undulating ups-and-downs, some joys yes, but lots of heartaches. Did I even want to play the game?
