Today's Thoughts

Wow, What a week. I have been living in my car. Each day another side of town. For those of you who don't know, Houston is spread all over the place. It has been a very profitable week however. Praise God! I needed it!

I have had a difficult time as I posted yesterday writing. So I went off to my local bookstore and bought a moleskine (reporter's/poets/writers notebook). And have been jotting down my thoughts throughout the day. I thought I would share a few with you.

I am amazed at how exposed we are to sin in our culture. Billboard ads promoting drinking, sex and gambling. We can't hardly stroll into a place to get gas without a long row of porn mags beckoning. At my doctors office waiting to be called back, the tv blared several ads to do with sex, drinking, and gambling. LOL. It would be funny if it wasn't so darn insidious.

My verse of the day, Romans 8-28

In all things God works for the good of those who love Him. Who have been called according to His good purpose.
Meaning, everything that happens in this world, good, bad whatever, happens to his purpose and somehow applies for the good of us all.

Read a quote by CS Lewis today that I really enjoyed. "If you are worried about the people outside of Christianity, the most unreasonable thing you can do is remain outside it yourself."

How do we as Christians change the culture? It seems to me that when we leave our church we enter our own missionary field. We don't have to go to Africa, or some remote South American Jungle to spread the Good News. We can be a Main Street Missionary.

Just a snapshot into my ADHD brain. Blogging doesn't have to be all about carefully crafted set pieces does it?

Cool I found a new niche for my busy busy life!

Love and Blessings!

No Larry, blogging doesn't have to be about set pieces. Sometimes our reverie is much more important. Hope you have a good weekend.

Ok, I know that I have very lax in posting comments on others blogs, thus not many people are posting on mine. I am reading all the time though.

Larry, I am glad to read that you are doing well and seem to finding your niche in life again. Just remember that easy does it wins the race.
