Fear, Failure, Faith, Google Search and Bear Poop

“Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.” {Hebrews 11:1}

So fear could be the “insecurity of what we worry about and the terror of what we do not see.”

Why You Don’t Have a Sin Problem {But you do have a decision to make}

Qualified. Delivered. Transferred. Redeemed. God’s word says you can jump off the wheel, you can be done trying to measure up. Your identity and your inheritance is to be a saint in the kingdom of light. Take that, Satan. Shut up with your murmurs that we have to stay stuck in the rut of sin, of “not-measuring up”. We are redeemed. Saints. Qualified. Pre-approved. I don’t have a sin problem anymore. It’s not my responsibility. In fact, it never was.

He called my story a sob story. That would make me the “sob-ber” –not really attractive. He then proceeded to call my story and how I told it –dumb. Three times dumb, said he.

After all, I am my story and my story is I. And yours is you, is it not?

Why You Need to Stop Defending Richard Sherman and Just Move On

When I go all Sherman on somebody, I have one thing to say: Thank God there’s no camera rolling! If you don’t know what I mean, google “Richard Sherman Erin Andrews interview” and you can watch on any variety of media outlets the rant that rang round the world after Sunday’s heated match-up, (and great game) between San Francisco’s 49ers and the Seattle Seahawks. We’re appalled, we’re thrilled, we’re disgusted, we’re debating and discussing it – we’re all over it like ants at a picnic.
