A few days ago I went biking. I felt a prompting to stop under a network of electrical overhead wires. The Lord reminded me of a very traumatic incident when I got electrocuted and died! At first I didn’t want to be reminded of the event, but as I have learned on my journey with Jesus, He sometimes would take me back to places to either teach me something or do a healing work in my heart. Here is the full story of the event, as I described in my book, When Gay Comes Home. I was only eleven when … Continue reading False anchors – they kill!
I am more determined than ever to toss technology…at least most of it. This is a pretty strong statement you may say. Not only has the Lord been speaking to me about distractions in my life – those things that come in-between me and God, I also see how destructive it is in relationships.

People are so lonely even though some of us have 700 or … Continue reading Tossing technology to touch people.

We are to be“ambassadors for Christ, as though God were making His appeal through us; and gave us the ministry of reconciliation so that by our example we might bring others to Him…” … Continue reading Building bridges.
Hearing about the massacre in Orlando, Florida has caused me to do a lot of thinking this past week. (And when I think, I like to put it on paper!) I thought about those who died, those who didn’t, and about second chances! As a born-again believer, my first thought when I hear about the death of someone is always this: “Did they know Jesus?” And the second thought is: “Are they with Him now, or are they eternally separated from Him?” It was no different when I heard about the massacre. I wondered about those who died. Did they … Continue reading A second chance.
Yes, yes, yes! Jesus did hang out with sinners, with prostitutes and the dishonest tax collectors! The Son of Man came eating and drinking [with others], … Continue reading Acceptance is not approval.
