Sep 12 – Walking In The Rain

3:256 – Walking In The Rain #faithnites #faithjourney walking Setting This morning was our planned prayer walk at church. It’s quite simple. A few people go walking through the neighborbood, observing what they can to determine the needs of the neighborhood, praying for the neighbors, greeting people they see, and if they are amenable to it, praying with them. It’s […]

Aug 30 – I’m Biased

3:243 – I’m Biased #faithbites #faithjourney biased Setting Yesterday I wrote about the passing of Chadwick Boseman and how we often equate value or greatness by the amount of coverage we get when we die or do something “great”. A friend commented and asked if I posted something similar when Carrie Fischer died. (I did some digging and found I […]

Apr 25 – Rain All Day

3:116 – Rain All Day #faithbites #faithjourney rain It has been a dreary rainy cold day here in central Illinois. It has rained non-stop all day. I’m expecting a kayak to go through my backyard anytime now. Days like this are great for naps and warm food. They also can intensify depression and gloomy moods. Rain can also be a […]

November 13 – Helping Correct Someone with Kindness

317 –¬†Helping Correct Someone with Kindness #faithbites #faithjourney correct Here’s a shocker for all of you: I am not perfect. I eat too much, don’t exercise enough, yell more than I should, and am not always the most pleasant person to be around. Sure, I apologize when I do wrong and seek forgiveness, but I am far from perfect. I […]

September 25 – We Don’t Agree, but I love You

268 – We Don’t Agree, But I Love You #faithbites #faithjourney Agree In high school and college I remember having debates about religion, sex, politics, and pretty much any topic that went late into the night / morning.

August 22 – We Are All Sinful

232 – We Are All Sinful #faithbites #faithjourney sinful In yesterday’s #faithbites, we talked about loving one another no matter what. In the image I used, it talked about worshiping other Gods and about being a homosexual. The premise was Jesus told us to love everyone. The comments I received opened my eyes a bit. There are those who focused […]

July 16 – Filibuster of Faith

197 – Filibuster of Faith #Faithbites #FaithJourney Filibuster I was walking across campus today and heard preaching in front of the Alma Mater. This happens pretty regularly. A man reads out of the Bible, or just holds it for effect and preaches or is he filibustering. Before we go in depth, let’s definitely filibuster: act in an obstructive manner in […]

June 27 – Judging

Judging #178of365 #FaithBites #FaithJourney Judging Today’s faithbite is inspired by the retirement of one of the US Supreme Court Judges. I try not to get political through faithbites but judging is part of our past, present, and future. There are many worried about the next justice because of our current administration. Those on the left are in deep fear that […]

February 23 – (Dis) Abilities

Today’s lesson is about appreciating those with disabilities or other abilities. I admit when I’m driving behind someone going slow I get mad sometimes. When I’m in line at the checkout and someone is going slow, I get impatient. When someone is walking so in front of me, I get impatient and frustrated. (It’s not like the extra 60 seconds […]
