putting the devil in his place…

While talking to a friend from church the other day, we got on the subject of how we as Christians don’t have to just sit around as the devil’s pawns ~ letting him mess with our minds while we blindly obey him. He gave an example of when he was trying to quit smoking and how the persistent thought that he must have a cigarette kept at him. He finally decided that the only thing to do was to send that thought back to hell from where it came. He told how he kept getting a mental picture of the devil sitting on his shoulder, whispering those thoughts in his ear and how eventually he figured the best way to deal with it was to tell the devil ~ “You’re a liar!” In time the thought that he must have a cigarette stopped. After talking with this friend I realized that I had been doing the same thing regarding my writing. He’d been whispering in my ear that I was a failure. That I should just give up. Quit. No one would care if I wrote another word. God hadn’t called me to write. Hmmm. Time to send that thought back from where it came.

“Devil ~ you’re a liar!”

Saw a great movie…

To Save A Life 

Choices. Taking action/vs. not taking action. Friendship. Feeling rejected. Suicide. Hurting inside. Cool vs. not cool. Love. Parties. Hopelessness. God. Families breaking apart. Standing up for what is right. Cutting. Booze. Sex.School

That’s what this movie is about. Go see it. You won’t be sorry.

What is God up to??

So what is the Lord trying to teach me? Patience? How to deal with disappointment? How to let go of my expectations? How to forgive? What, Lord, what?! Seems like so many people have been letting me down lately. I’ve been so frustrated and confused. I just don’t know what to think anymore. God, what are You up to?! Can you let me in on it?

romance books

My second novel, entitled, “Dark Pursuits,” is about a man’s addiction to pornography and what that does to him, his wife, and their daughter. It’s a subject I feel pretty strong about. I think pornography is straight from the pit of hell. And I know that many men struggle with it. It’s everywhere. On the internet. In books. Magazines. TV commercials. Movies. Everywhere men are being teased with this thing ~ beckoned, called. But I noticed something interesting while in WalMart this morning. Have you looked at romance books lately? The kind geared toward women? Talk about porn! Cheech! The pages are full of graphic descriptions of a very sexual nature! And women are hooked on this stuff. Through books, magazines, TV, movies, etc. ~ I think we’ve created an overly-sexual society! Kids are into porn now! How can they help it? Even the cartoons are full of sexual messages.  How this must sadden God ~ who created sex as an act between a married man and woman. Anything else can easily become a sick bondage. God help us…
