Waiting for God to Answer


Today: Proverbs 13 I sometimes act like a whiny adolescent when I ask my Father for something. This is what I want, and I want it now! I may not pray those words, but God knows all about my attitude.

The Shortcut: A Parable on the Path of Life


Over the years, I’ve come to realize that I don’t know this trail very well. I don’t have any idea what is around the next corner, and the corners are many. It’s dangerous. It’s an adventure. I’m hiking on someone else’s land. I’m a visitor on these trails, so I have no rights to go wherever I please and do …

I’m reminded of that fact every so often when I think I have everything under control. God knows the best way for me to live. He knows the path ahead of me much …
