75: How God ‘Is’ Real! Part 1

We talked last episode about the question ‘Is God Real?’. In this episode I talk to a friend of mine, Scott, to help me get a grip on this question and the follow up question, ‘How IS God Real?’ We float a lot of ideas around and the more we talk about it, the more I listen, the deeper my understanding of my faith becomes.

American Goldfinch

He’s a daily visitor now. Feasting on the Black-eyed Susans and sunflowers, they are almost gone and yet this ones family stops by daily. It’s been a pleasure to have them this year.

The Marshlands

Miss heading here. It’s been closed ever since the tropical storm came through about a month ago and did some significant damage. love this place. It’s where I grew up running around everyday. It’s my quiet place, well, at least one if my quiet places. Hope it opens back up soon….

Serenity Now

That ‘vortex of negativity’ I always talk about avoiding? Well somehow it got hold of me and I am currently fighting my way back, I’m not completely consumed…I’m stuck at the entrance but it’s incredibly strong and I’m giving it all I can to get out.

What happened? The world and everything bad happened to find a crack through my armor and began to seep in.

Somehow…someway…violence towards others, hatred, lawlessness….they all have found an accepting place in our society…where in my world…none of that is now or will ever be acceptable.

I’m not talking about isolated pockets. I am talking about large masses.

I think we have lost the positive message. It’s been stolen away by the savagery of that violence, hatred, and lawlessness

Normally I see it coming…the storm cloud…but I didn’t see this one…and to be honest…I am worried for us all…

Praying things get better. Yes…I’ve turned to prayer a long time ago.

Violence and hatred never solves anything.

You can beat a man into submission but that will never change what’s in his mind.

Prayer…

I’m praying this settles down…

Maybe you can join me in prayers….

Disconnecting to Connect

Disconnecting to connect today. I do it often. I need to do it often! Too much anger and hatred happening in the world these days. I shut off the TV, very little personal social media, not watching the videos, not getting sucked into the vortex of negativity…I know what’s happening on the streets…I’m out there on the streets often…I see everything…I’m not ignoring what’s real…I know exactly what’s up… and the only way it’s going to change is if we stop the hate and respect each other…and we need to pray on it as well!

Looking quiet up there..

So much happening today in the city. Rioting, looting, doesn’t appear to be getting better. Prayers to all.
