How to Start the Day with Pen and Paper

IMG_0083

Today I want to walk you through a morning of journaling from the heart, to the heart of God. Are you ready?

You will need your journal, and a pen. You will need your Bible, and whatever reading plan you follow, or Scripture you are meditating on for today.

You may have a beverage, but usually my coffee grows cold as I set my pen to writing my heart to God.

The Danger of Should: Why Positive Thinking May Not be the Answer

A preliminary scrolling of Instagram started my day, between the morning meandering that makes up the daily routine of my life and sitting down for my first cup of coffee, I find myself under assault.

The word, should, catches my attention.

I haven’t opened my Bible yet, but fortunately I must have slept in my spiritual armor. Or maybe after years of wearing it, it finally has become my permanent garb. Or maybe it’s just that I open my Bible enough so when I am confronted with philosophies disguised as wisdom in the form of memes, posts, advertising and free offers, I recognize the not so subtle brain washing of an unseen enemy who plays for keeps.

Mom and I in happier days!

 

To say that 2018 was a difficult year would be an understatement. When your New Year begins with being abruptly displaced from your home without warning and ends with the loss of a loved one, well words are sorta hard to find.

I’m still settling into the reality of her being gone and this new year starting without her. I’m still struggling to figure out who I am without her in my life, and what’s next. Most of all I am missing the woman I called Mom.

My Bible Stack (with Videos)

This morning I decided to film a video (Part 1 and 2)  about the Bible Stack under my desk. I have such a close relationship with Scripture as it is the vehicle most often used by the Holy Spirit to teach and guide me into timeless truths.

From the Perspective of Dust

 

A little backstory on today’s poetic offering. I had a conversation on the phone with my nephew Todd as I prepared dinner last night. He has been through some upheaval, but I am grateful to know the Lord has taken hold of him.

As I spoke with him, I recalled my early days of seeking God, and trying to follow the way of truth. Trying to bumble around this new life I felt within. Trying to figure out the church and church people with all the confusing mixed messages. Trying to understand scripture and what it had to do with me.

Or more specifically, learning about the One who called Himself, in John 14:6  THE Way, THE Truth, and THE Life (emphasis mine). The One who didn’t mince words, leave room for doubt, or room to accept multiple ways. The one who cared not whether what he said would win him favor with the religious elite or the politically inclined.  More
