All I knew how to be – excerpt

EXCERPT 7 – I WILL NOT HIDE (One more excerpt to come) Sept 2018: In going through my journals from years ago, I read about all the friends I had. Friends to talk with and do things with.

Imagine

  God is faithful, who has called you into fellowship with his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. 1 Corinthians 1:9   I hope you don’t mind, but with this I continue a topic similar to what I spoke of last week, but much different. Have you ever wondered how it might have been to be […]

Me? an activist? – excerpt 6

From I Will not Hide April 2012: I don’t like myself very much right now. Who do I think I am, anyway, making such a big deal over something I disagreed with my pastor on? Am I cut out to be an activist? I don’t think all this disagreeing and fussing over things makes me […]

  …if it’s the wrong kind.   Godly sorrow brings repentance that leads to salvation and leaves no regret, but worldly sorrow brings death. 2 Corinthians 7:10   I’m sorry to bring you such a heavy topic today. But I felt I must. There’s a lot of false teaching occurring which I believe is harmful […]

A dizzy soul – excerpt 4

  EXCERPT 4 – I WILL NOT HIDE June 2007: I’ll be going to Bible study in a little while and I know that one question our facilitator, Mary, told us she will be asking is, “How is your soul?” I would have to answer that it’s rather dizzy right now, though it is improving. […]

Wrong-doing allowed?

  “If your brother or sister sins against you, rebuke them; and if they repent, forgive them.  Even if they sin against you seven times in a day and seven times come back to you saying, ‘I repent,’ you must forgive them.” Luke 17:3-4   I wrote on this topic of forgiveness not long ago, […]

Enemy attacks

  I’ve heard much about Satanic attacks, and even though the Bible talks about them, they’ve been so far from my experience that I haven’t paid much attention. But over the last two or three weeks, I definitely feel I have encountered them. I was humiliated by a couple of people who showed no respect […]
