Gratitude

On October 26, 2012, I suffered a cerebral hemorrhage from a burst aneurysm. This is my first effort to express my thankfulness to God before my fellow men for sparing my life.

God, realizing all the interesting things undone, delayed eternity.

Thank you Lord Jesus. Amen

A Weight Lifted

We’ve all heard people say, “It felt like there was a weight lifted off my shoulders.” You’ve probably had that feeling yourself. I experienced it earlier this week.

I have been bearing the weight of a devastating family problem for over two months and for all that time, I have lived with a feeling

A Candle

I am a dim and tiny candle In a sea of darkness shining, But I will keep on spreading light With the message I’m defining.

Perhaps one person may spy the glow, Seeping dimly from my flame, And spread it to another Because to it he came.

So though my light be soft and

I Believe in Jesus Christ

 Once I was sinful for a long period of time.  When I repented of my sin, I sometimes wondered if my repentance was sufficient to redeem me.  Then one night, in a dream, Satan appeared to me.  I turned my back on him and said, “I believe that Jesus Christ is the son of

The Healing

As I write this, it’s springtime and I’m thinking about new beginnings.  A long time ago, I experienced a new beginning myself. 

It was over forty years ago that I was on the “outs” with most of my friends and everyone in my family because, at the time, I was making a lot of

Since I decdied to believe on his name,

Nothing in life has ever been the same.

I live every moment with

When Prayer is too Hard

I am by nature a “word” person.  I’ve been chattering away my entire life and covering reams of paper with words ever since I learned to touch type; so it surprised me when the despair of a long, extremely difficult period in my life left me wordless. I was desperate for solace from the

Zip Line Evangelization at Super Bowl Village

I was in downtown Indy yesterday for a business meeting, and I walked through Super Bowl Village on my way back to my car.  There was a large zip line going high above the street for 2 blocks.  The church facing the zip line, St. John the Evangelist, got very creative with this sign

It’s Only a Quarter

Several years ago a preacher moved to Houston, Texas. Some weeks after he arrived, he had occasion to ride the bus from his home to the downtown area. When he sat down, he discovered that the driver had accidentally given him a quarter too much change. As he considered what to do, he thought
