If I love God am I protected from everything? You know, some people think this is true. It’s certainly possible to read parts of the Bible and get that impression. However, the key word there is “parts”. There are verses that make it feel like God will protect us from everyone and everything. The thing is though, ...
My first radiation treatment showed That God is Awesome
My first radiation treatment showed that God is awesome. That probably sounds weird. Maybe even wrong? I'm getting radiation for prostate cancer. And during my first treatment, while I'm inside the Tomograph machine getting zapped by dangerous radiation, I thought about how awesome God is.
Psalm 25 – Why Can’t We Trust What We Know?
Even when we know a lot about God, in our heads, we still doubt. Even when we trust God in our hearts, we still worry. It's nice to know we're not alone. Those are some of the same things David seems to express in Psalm 25. Why can't we trust what we know?
Will we have enough food in Heaven to be happy?
Will we have enough food in Heaven to be happy? The food we want? That probably depends. Fortunately, I like fish. Like the sushi below. But the real question is, will we have enough food? Too many people in the world don’t get what they want or even enough of any kind of food.

Are you ready? God is coming. We don’t know when, but He will be here. At any moment. So it’s not even a question of “will you be ready”. No. It’s a question of “are you ready”. Now.

Back then, it was strictly an analysis of what the Bible said. Now it’s 2023. I’ve had some experience with healing. And with not healing. It’s so much more real when it’s our own life depending on being healed. Or not healed.
Psalm 23 – Fear No Evil In The Valley Of The Shadow Of Death
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil. The 23rd Psalm says that. But is it for real? Can it really happen? Maybe for King David, who wrote the Psalm. But for us today?
Psalm 22 – Is Everyone Saved By Jesus’ Death?
Is everyone saved by Jesus’ death? That’s an idea that some people believe. Or at least want to believe. David appears to say everyone will be saved in Psalm 22. But did he really say that?
Psalm 21 – How Much Do We Really Trust God?
Do we trust God? Lots of people probably answer yes. But how much do we really trust God? Enough that our life is guided by Him? Or is God merely along for the ride while we go wherever we want? And while we do whatever we want? That’s my question after reading Psalm 21.
