Predestination – a response to a prompt

Here’s another response to a prompt given to me by my beloved. The prompt was ‘Predestination.’ Heavy subject indeed. Man has long pondered the question of destiny. Are we indeed traveling through a story that has already been lain out for us, in which we have no power to change the ending? Perhaps we create… Read more »

Mark 8:36-37

I saw this hawk in our backyard waiting and watching for a meal to pass by. One never did. Eventually, he flew on. For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world, and forfeit his soul? For what will a man give in exchange for his soul? Mark 8:36-37

Psalm 119

Forever, O Lord, Your word is settled in heaven. Your faithfulness continues throughout all generations; You established the earth, and it stands. They stand this day according to your ordinances, For all things are your servants. Psalm 119:89-91

Proverbs 3

The third chapter of the book of Proverbs speaks so soundly and clearly as to how we should live. The advice given therein cannot be disputed. Stress kills people. Folly and self-love kill people.

Habakkuk 1:5

In the opening to the book of Habakkuk in the Old Testament, the prophet is asking God why there are so many horrible things allowed in society. God’s answer beginning in verse 5 was this: “Look among the nations! Observe! Be astonished! Wonder! Because I am doing something in your days-  You would not believe… Read more »

Galations 5:22

“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control”       Galations 5:22 When we try to live of these, we are all the better for it. I thank God that I could de-stress for a few days and get back on track to practicing them.
