Who Is The Master Of Your Fate?

Who Is The Master Of Your Fate?

I am the master of my fate, I am the captain of my soul. A line from the poem Invictus (Latin for ‘unconquered’) I have always loved. But recently I looked a little closer at the entire poem and what it was really saying. Out of the night that covers me, Black as the pit from pole […]

In My Weakness

In My Weakness

“But he said to me, ” My grace us sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ’s sake , I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in […]

Foolish Fears

Foolish Fears

My daughter is terrified of sunflowers. Not just the ones that grow wild and tall on the plains and have centers that contain hundreds of seeds that could possibly be mistaken for insects. I’m talking about any sunflowers.  Literally. One time when we were traveling together, we stopped at a convenience store to use the […]

God’s Strength

God’s Strength

It’s been a trying day. Things didn’t go as planned at all. I’d gathered everything I needed for the DMV office. My van had totally died; we needed a new-to-us van. God provided one. Got to the DMV. Standing room only. I stand there an hour. Waiting. Waiting. Waiting.   And then found out that […]

Being Bold

Being Bold

So often in my life I have felt afraid, fearful of just about everything. My childhood left me with anxieties about many things. And yet, I’ve often been told how “fearless” I seem by people. Just recently someone said they envied my boldness, going forward fearlessly. They wished they could be like me, they said. […]
