The Battle for Middle Earth

If you are familiar at all with J.R.R. Tolkien, you know Middle Earth.  Middle-Earth is the setting of much of Tolkien’s writing that forms the background to his LORD OF THE RINGS. Gondor, Isengard, Rohan, Minas Tirith, Rivendell, The Shire and more ….all regions within Middle Earth. And of course, who can forget, Mordor!

You Are in Good Company!

To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David.

How long, O Lord? Will You forget me forever? How long will You hide Your face from me? How long shall I take counsel in my soul, Having sorrow in my heart daily? How long will my enemy be exalted over me?

Are You Losing Faith in God?

faithThere is a disturbing trend in our world today. Many people are walking away from faith in God. More disturbing, I don’t think it is a trend, I think it is a real dilemma in people’s lives. Because of the tragedies they have seen in our world, they wonder, “How could God exist with all this evil in the world?”. See below, how I broach the subject and I hope it brings you some hope if you are wondering yourself. DON’T LOSE YOUR FAITH IN GOD!

 

Obstacles……friend or foe?

friend-or-foeObstacles are part of life. We face them daily and when we do, I don’t know about you, I don’t like them. They keep me from forward movement. Obstacles are a frustration that distracts from my goal. They are the enemy. Right? What do you do when you encounter obstacles? Scream? Give up? Roll over? Or…do you press harder? Become more determined? Build some backbone? If you do the latter then guess what? Obstacles have become your friend!
