Here’s What “I Am”

June 12, 2012 2 comments




I am enjoying the slower pace of life since retirement.

I am grateful for the cool weather and good rains we’ve had this Spring.

I am wondering if the Dallas Cowboys can possibly get their act together this year.

I am reading Tim Keller’s The Freedom of Self-Forgetfulness.

I am memorizing the book of Ephesians (and hoping I will have it done by the time the Lord calls me home).

I am praying for friends who are hurting and in desperate need of God’s special touch.

I am playing a game with an opponent on Words With Friends who beats me by 100 points
every time we play, so maybe he’s cheating?

I am reflecting on the sermon I heard Sunday from passages in Ecclesiastes:  “Fear God,” says the wise man.

I am wishing Norman had a more comfortable, attractive library.

I am hoping the gophers in our backyard will be curious and explore the enticing little traps we set for them. 

I am amazed at how quickly time goes by when I’m writing.

I am grateful to the “I AM” for His allowing me to be His child forever.

The Day I Accused My Wife Of Infidelity:  Seeking an “extra” revelation from God or wanting to feel we have an insight not given to every believer can take us down a dangerous path, as C. Michael Patton explains in his blog at Credo House Ministries.

People Do Good Things And Bad Things:  You will enjoy reading the insights from Tim Challies on how different religions view the universal concept we all share about how our right and wrong acts must balance each other out.  Read “The Ledger” here.

Film on the book of Job:  Desiring God, a ministry arm of John Piper, announced the release on iTunes of “JOB the Film.”  This is an animated work of Piper’s poetry interpreting the Old Testament book of Job.  It is a moving film answering “why do people suffer.”  View the trailer below.
