What is a mind not wavering? What is strength? What is faith? Can I walk in it? Who holds the key? Is the door really locked? Am I on the outside looking in? Are you inside waiting? Are you cheering me on? Are my hands strong? Will I use them wisely? Why am I asking … Continue reading Fully Convinced in Spite of all My Questions
I never do anything like this so welcome to a first on the Inspired by the Comforter site. After speaking with a friend earlier, I couldn't help but start singing a couple of choruses from some old songs I grew up on. I was lied to for years. The world around me, and yes, even … Continue reading The Blood will Never Lose its Power
I've been through a lot in my lifetime. I used to feel a little sorry for myself if I'm being honest. I can remember sad, pitiful, moments when I whined at God because "He must love everyone else more than me since life was so unfair", blah blah blah. I'm ashamed to admit that, but … Continue reading Don’t Waste the Chains
Have you ever read something and you just can't stop thinking about it? Saturday morning, I read a passage of Scripture, I've read probably one hundred times, but I never saw it. I've spent a lot of times studying the book of 2 Kings. I have a profound fascination with Elisha. I have even considered … Continue reading Crank up the Music
For some reason, I decided to dig back through the archives today. I guess I was interested to see how far I’ve come since I started throwing my thoughts out into the air. In honor of all the nostalgia, enjoy this little blast from the past. I still wonder a lot of these things…

I wonder if there are places where two & two add up to three. You know…like me & you & we.
I wonder at wonderful and it’s subjectivity, how the universals collide with perspective to form the moment when “it is good”

If the world were made of tears, I'm sure I would have cried enough to hold us all. If the tears I cried became substance, then no one would ever fall.

Every breath, a choice Every moment, an opportunity for a voice Yet, I am so often silent. This is humanity... … Continue reading One foot…keep walking
Dream a little dream for me As tomorrow nears And the night closes its eyes Or maybe it keeps them open waiting for morning Or maybe tomorrow is a continuance of today Or maybe we can sweep it away in solitude for brighter things to come Whatever the case.... Goodnight today Welcome hope New mercies … Continue reading Good night world
Who am I if the world stops turning for a moment And I'm left with the quiet and the night Who am I when grace is the only option Because, alone, I'm never enough And grace says that's still okay. Who am I in the face of lunchboxes and routines? Who am I when I'm … Continue reading Who am I?
If you and I were "I and me" and the world were nothing but trees and bees, would any of it matter? If I and you were, you and me, and there was nothing but us and song and "free", would it be worth fighting for? Just wondering... Deep thoughts in the midst of a … Continue reading Random thoughts from the tired
