When Your Faith and Your Works Don’t Quite Work Out

Frustration
It’s like getting a new car one day and then finding out the car won’t start the next morning.

It’s a somewhat similar feeling when we fast…we pray and we work our tails off to make sure we are pulling our own weight in the equation and still, nada…nothing …zilch.

Stuck in the paralysis of analysis…not moving backwards but not moving forward either.

Seizure at the light

IJMm-app-icon-logoI had never seen anything like that before. The right side of his mouth looked like it was stretching towards his right ear. The veins on his neck were elevated and I just sat there…in my car…watching in a daze. The traffic light turned green but I couldn’t get my foot to push the pedal.
As I approached that light, I saw him towards my right at the street corner. White sleeveless undershirt and sky blue oversized basketball shorts. Something about him fixed my eyes as I approached the light. When I got to the light, I finally saw what was going on. Read more
