This Stodgy Blog, or, You Gotta Have Faith

Behold! A picture. I can do this now. I used to see these little purple butterflies all around this part of New Jersey, but lately they’ve been scarce.

Yesterday I looked at some other people’s blogs and got to thinking my own is kind of… well, blah.

No bells, no whistles. If you want to see a picture, or watch some video, all I can give you is a link that may or may not work. No great big lines of avatars, “So-and-so liked this post,” marching along the bottom: just one, two, or three if I’m lucky.

Basically, all I do here is write stuff. Every day, if I can. It’s supposed to inspire you to buy my books, but I often forget that and wind up writing about all sorts of other things.

What can I do to jazz up this blog? Given my level of computer skills, not much.

I can hear you thinking, “Gee, now he’s writing like someone who doesn’t know what to write about.” Well, that’s because it’s Sunday. There’s tons and tons of news to comment on–all of it bad. I try to honor the Lord of the Sabbath by sitting at peace for one day of the week. The battle is the Lord’s; He does not need me, to win it.

“Oh, but what’s the Lord doing! The wicked are chewing up the earth like termites!”

When you can’t see your way ahead, you gotta walk by faith.

If we can’t see what God is doing about this mess, it may be because He sometimes likes to work with things and people that are too small for us to see, using the insignificant to overthrow the great, the weak to confound the strong, and things that are despised to humiliate the proud.

Wait and see. Believe in God, and wait and see.

  1. Good morning, Lee,
    Now you are thinking along some of the same lines as I do. That may be a little scary, but then, on the other hand, most of your writing is much more interesting than mine, so there is some consolation in that, right?
    There are a lot of “bells and whistles” on line, so sometimes it is good just to read “straight-up” articles.

  2. Psalm 73
    12 This is what the wicked are like—
    always free of care, they go on amassing wealth.
    13 Surely in vain I have kept my heart pure
    and have washed my hands in innocence.
    14 All day long I have been afflicted,
    and every morning brings new punishments.
    15 If I had spoken out like that,
    I would have betrayed your children.
    16 When I tried to understand all this,
    it troubled me deeply
    ********17 till I entered the sanctuary of God;
    then I understood their final destiny.
