God Causes All Things to Work Together for the Good of Those He Called (Part 1)

This week, I'm supposed to tell you that God causes all things to work together for the good of those he called. That doesn't mean it feels good. For example, one year ago today I became homeless after taking a bus partway to a tire store, walking the rest of the way, renting a U-Haul … Continue reading God Causes All Things to Work Together for the Good of Those He Called (Part 1)

What Happens When God Orders My Steps (A Flashback)

Last night, I shared a few examples of what happens when God orders my steps. This morning, Facebook reminded me of two more that occurred one year ago today. One was the Canada goose incident. The second was something that happens often as I work in retail and couldn't happen if I were still freelancing … Continue reading What Happens When God Orders My Steps (A Flashback)

What Happens When God Orders My Steps

Sunday, I spent most of the afternoon writing a 2,000-word post. Today, I watched a sermon that made me question whether I should schedule it. "I'm confused," I told God silently. "If you don't want me to post it, you've gotta tell me in no uncertain terms." When I turned on Radio 1000 at 6 … Continue reading What Happens When God Orders My Steps

How Happily Single Cat Ladies Celebrate Independence Day

This morning, as I walked … Continue reading How Happily Single Cat Ladies Celebrate Independence Day

God Is God. (Part 1: Signs and Wonders)

As I've said before in this blog/memoir, people have strange ideas about God. For example, some would dispute yesterday's post, "God Still Speaks to Us," by saying he gave us the Bible so he wouldn't have to. Others say God doesn't have the same rules and expectations he had in the Old Testament because Jesus … Continue reading God Is God. (Part 1: Signs and Wonders)

God Still Speaks to Us

When I was a kid, a character on a "Night Court" episode thought God was communicating to her through her TV. Everyone else thought she was crazy. Likewise, you probably thought I was crazy last week when I said God showed me who I'm supposed to marry seven years ago, but God still speaks to … Continue reading God Still Speaks to Us

Commitment to God’s Will for Your Life May Mean Breaking up with Your Boo

I titled Monday night's post "God Probably Wants You to Finish What You Started" and repeated the word "probably" three more times because it's possible you're dating someone that God doesn't want you to be dating, as I did two years after I became a Christian even though God showed me who I'm supposed to … Continue reading Commitment to God’s Will for Your Life May Mean Breaking up with Your Boo
