Four Question Friday

Yesterday, WordPress sent me a message saying that I had reached my 200th post. That’s crazy! I think the blog is growing slowly, but my Instagram account (@mydailyrock) is growing by leaps and bounds. It’s a lot of fun and I am enjoying every minute of it. The thing I enjoy the most is when someone contacts me to…

God Loves You

and me. I’ve had a few of these reminders the past few days. I feel like I was finally coming out of the fog and He starts talking or, maybe, I’m enough out of the fog that I can finally hear Him. Either way is good and I’ll take it. Max quotes Psalms 23:6 in the last…

Are you a Sheep?

I am learning so much about sheep from this book. All kinds of random facts that I’m sure I wouldn’t have taken the time to learn on my own. The weirdest thing is how much alike we are with them. We are all sheep. No wonder Jesus calls Himself a shepherd so often. It just…

Sad and Desperate

I didn’t blog yesterday. I couldn’t. I reached a point in this book (Traveling Light by Max Lucado) where it became too personal. So, instead of blogging, I cried. Big old ugly crying. There just wasn’t anything I could say that would explain what I was feeling and how the words on the pages were affecting…

Compassion

I was on the treadmill today at the gym listening to a TED Radio Hour talk about compassion. They talked about all of the reasons for having it, including as a way to insure survival (“you help me now, I’ll help you later). It was interesting, but I couldn’t help but think of the current…

Discontent and Weariness

Oh boy. Today’s topics will be hard to write about. Mostly because I am guilty of both. Man, oh man, there are circumstances in my life I want to be “right” and, more than that, I am the poster child of unhappiness because of those couple of things. Of course, it all makes me weary,…

We humans want to do things our way. Forget the easy way. Forget the common way. Forget the best way. Forget God’s way. We want to do things our way. And, according to the Bible, that’s precisely our problem. “We all have wandered away like sheep; each of us has gone his own way.” Isa….

New Book Monday

It’s New Book Monday. I’ve decided, since I keep “breaking” my rules about the books I’m reading, that I actually have no rules. I thought I did. I wanted to keep it to new writers, those who haven’t published more than two books. The problem is that right now, there don’t seem to be a…
