Pursuing Your Purpose

Receiving and taking action on God’s vision for you. Refining and working within your call and giftings.

And your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, “This is the way, walk in it,” when you turn to the right or when you turn to the left. — Isaiah 30:21

Do You Worry You’re Not Doing Enough?

Like many of you, sometimes I wonder if I’m doing enough. For the Lord, for my family, for the horses, as a good steward, and as a writer. I haven’t posted much since the last newsletter. This month’s (April 2018) list of articles is uncomfortably short. Have I let you down? Shirked? What happened? Life. Fiction writers dream up stories,

Ambushed on Social Media

  Fifty years ago I was a figure skater. During a practice session, I landed a small jump just as another skater did hers. In case you’re not familiar with skating, jump take-offs are planned; landings are estimated. Our paths crossed, and my super-sharp skate blade lacerated her calf, leaving a scar when it healed.

God’s Sense Of Humor And The Call To Ministry

I practice daily humility moments. They’re gonna happen anyway, so I happy to get mine in early. Whenever I’m tempted to think I’m spiffy, I remember a morning in 2009 when God introduced the concept of ministry to me with His unique brand of humor.
