An Unspeakable Tragedy

An Unspeakable Tragedy “Oh that my head were a spring of water and my eyes were a fountain of tears!  I would weep day and night for the slain of my people.”  Jeremiah 9:1 Today is the 44th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, a judicial decision that literally opened a floodgate of evil in our nation.

Cherries

Life is a bowl of cherries, and there are pits, but not as the old saying goes. There is the fleshy sweet part, the “good” part. The job you landed, the dollar you found, sitting watching the sunrise, going to fast on that perfect stretch of road, feeling the sand between your toes on that

No Ordinary Life

No Ordinary Life As is my custom, this blog will be a progressive one.  I will be adding to it occasionally a selection of those who did not live ordinary lives.  Why?  Because our standard has been so lowered that we highly esteem nice people who regularly attend church.  Nothing wrong with that, but that

Poking Sacred Cows: Part Three

Poking Sacred Cows: Part Three Ok, we take up from where we left off in Part Two, asking the question:  ‘How did December 25th come to be associated with the birth of Jesus, the Son of God?’.  According to biblicalarcheology.org, “There is no mention of birth celebrations in the writings of early Christian writers such as Ireaneus (c. 130-200)

Poking Sacred Cows: Part Two

Poking Sacred Cows: Part Two Well, if you are returning to read Poking Sacred Cows: Part Two, I know something about you.  You are either here by a complete accident attracted by the odd title of this series of Soap Boxes, you are curious about what I am going to say about Christmas or you

Poking Sacred Cows: Part One

Poking Sacred Cows: Part One You have to be pretty careful when you start poking the proverbial sacred cows that people hold dear.  Just on the front end so I don’t keep you in any suspense, I will let you know that the sacred cow I am fixing to poke is the event known in

We might need an Awakening if…

We might need an Awakening if… This particular post is going to be continually expanding with more additional entries from time to time.  Presented in the unconventional style of Jeff Foxworthy’s “You might be a redneck if…” (but definitely not written as comedy), it is a different way to present some food for thought ideas about

Revelation-Revolution-Reformation-Revival

One of the amazing things about getting older for me is how I now value history in a way I never have.  And it is always interesting what little spark will ignite another deep search into history for me. The book, A Table in the Frontier, sprang from a simple desire I had to know

Awakenings: Ten Things I’ve Learned

I spent the better part of a year researching the events of the Second Great Awakening.  A good amount of that information is compiled in the book: A Table in the Frontier.  Because I found much more content than I could fit into a book, I will be sharing even more content in separate posts

When Donkeys Talk

When donkeys begin talking (as in Numbers 22), it is time to listen! Why?  Because this may be an unusual indication that circumstances have reached the point that information must be given from a highly unlikely source, and conditions are very dire.  Most of the time you cannot receive information from a donkey.  They are pretty quiet as a general

Pray Like This

(Jesus said) “Therefore you must be praying in this way:” Our Father Not my Father, but our Father.  We are not individuals, but a part of a corporate body.  No longer “I”, but now “we”.  Who we are only makes sense in relation to our connection to the greater body of Christ. Who is in

Pain is Good

Pain is good, it will help you identify a problem. Do not try and reduce the pain until you find the root of the problem. God’s truth often brings pain as it highlights a problem that we have, but His truth will always show us the way to freedom,too. When you receive this and know

True Love Shines

I read the following and the light from the window danced on my face. “True love shines the brightest against the greatest darkness.  You love Me when you see ME with your heart and obey ME, even though your eyes cannot see ME as they do now.  Love and worship will be the greatest in

A Golden Calf with Earrings

Could it be that all of the trouble began way before the golden calf was ever constructed in Exodus 31? In Exodus 19, only three months after the children of Israel had gone forth out of the land of Egypt where they had been enslaved for approximately 300+ years, they arrived at the desert of

A Quote from Smith Wigglesworth

There are many things in life that you can not understand. But be patient, for when the hand of God is upon something, it may grind very slowly, but it will form the finest thing possible if you dare to wait until it is complete. — Smith Wigglesworth

The Keys to the Kingdom

(A quote from a Friday night Prayer Meeting in May/2015) Regarding being given the keys to the Kingdom of God:  children play with keys, but adults use the keys as they were designed to be used.  They unlock and lock things with them. “We have a responsibility to know what we are LOCKING and UNLOCKING,

Dream: The Glory of God

I was somewhere walking outside when a man came up to me very excited and told me that if I wanted to see and experience the glory of God, I needed to hurry and go to a certain place. He was telling everyone he could get to listen to him the very same thing. The

Dream: Doing What I Can’t Do

I have this reoccurring dream.  The setting is always the same.  Sometimes there are parts of the event in the dream that change, but the opening scene is always the same. I am standing behind a curtain in the wings looking at a grand stage.  There is nothing on the stage except a very large

The Heart of Nashville

I love this city. I was born near the heart of the city and it has always had a huge place in my heart. I cannot, even if I tried, estimate the enormous number of images I have taken of this city. I boggles my mind, and continually challenges my husband’s ability to supply enough

The Power of Words

Have you ever noticed that when someone shares about something that the Lord has done in their lives, that others that hear those words experience the same breakthrough? What is shared may be the details of how a person was healed.  Somehow those words seem to open a door for others to experience healing themselves.  Apparently,

Writing the Book

It was much more than one book could contain. I simply had narrow my focus to what I believed were the most important pieces of this giant puzzle so that the readers could get a taste of what happened during those times in both Kentucky and Tennessee.

Catalysts Arise!

I heard something when I was praying, but it is so far beyond my understanding. I mean I don’t comprehend exactly what I heard, so if I say the wrong thing, it is because I have no idea what I am talking about.  Earlier today, or yesterday I heard the word ‘catalyst’.  And, I heard
