grace 101

I recently tagged along with my BFF who was hired as the photographer for a high-end, two day “Breakfast with Santa” event. The venue hired a different Santa for each day and the contrast between the two of them could not have been more stark.

grace 101

I suppose we have to be thankful on Thanksgiving. The rest of the year we can “cuss and spit” and complain. But how can I be thankful? Each morning when I go to God, my prayer starts with my list of complaints, my fears and anxieties, and my list of things about which I am certainly not grateful. He always listens and waits until I’m spent. Then God says, “You through?”

But before we can be all things to all men, we have to listen and taste the salt of their tears. Here’s a short video from Steve about it.

grace 101

A Christian philosophy of boldness should include the believer’s rights. In fact, it would be incomplete without a list of believer’s rights. I used to teach that a believer has no rights…I was wrong. Now a Christian may or may not choose to turn over his or her rights…but don’t tell me that a Christian has no rights. It simply isn’t true. So what are your rights as a believer?

grace 101

I forgot the love, the commitment, the words, the vows, the wonder. I worked harder. Read more marriage books. Tried and tried and tried to submit, like a good Christian wife. The to-do lists, the boundaries, the theories, and the formulas. Just tell me what to do.
