Remember He Is My Answer–though maybe not yours!

As I’v known somehow there was an answer for me out there; shortly before Christmas 2017, was it December 10, I affirmed my mother, my step-mom, and my dad’s commitment to Jesus was the same as me. Today, this morning, I realized some friends may think I’m into Gospel of prosperity. I recognize that not every situation will be magically “taken care” of by the lord of light, but, in fact, this is an opposite answer to what God offers. Prayer works, and I must do the work, that often good, and great doctors will have the answer for my health needs. God works through people, people in our lives, spouses, friends, family, dedicated professionals, volunteers of every ilk, people educated to their desired career, so many people prepared to their lives of service. Oh, God, I thank you for the blessings in my life, but it’s like the adage of the half full glass of water.

It’s time to admit that I don’t have answers to most of the answers in this world, that there are probably planets with answers closer to reality, and that reality is Jesus Christ. So, don’t be be surprised if you find a planet, we won’t do it, but our ancestors, which allows for it’s people, however different (prejudice comes in many forms) worshiping the Son God, NOT the sun of god. God has answers we cannot conceive of for He (it) is God in all of His manifestations. All the Laws of the universes conform to God’s means, and to accept the miracle of the Resurrection is the first building block of a new and triumphant life. We cannot appreciate all the wonders in the trillions, and trillions…and trillions of answers He offers us in a fruitful life. This id faith, this is accepting God on God’s terms, to accept the death and Resurrection of Jesus. There is a leap here, now way to get around it, for you certainly can deny all of This, or you can accept this Story about the salvation of human (and other) kind.

I was a University and community college instructor before retiring. I also worked in fast food restaurants, and retail stores. I am an ordinary man writing for because I want to write and because my education prepared me to write; BA English lit, MA English, EdS higher education, and MFA creative writing, free verse poetry and essays. Blogs are an answer to high-priced self-publishing. Walt Whitman had to self-publish his first 1000 copies of the 1855 edition of Leaves of Grass because in 1855 poetry did not sell. Most poets make a living in other ways than writing. Wallace Stevens was an insurance executive, and TS Eliot was a banker. Many writers teach, and always there have been writers who have written because they needed to express their thoughts and feelings. They wrote not necessarily to make money but to express "the old universal truths of the human heart" according to Faulkner. Here I reach a wider audience I missed than by self-publishing, and I stand a better chance to reach a wider audience for less expense than self-publishing. I self-published my first books, Winter from Spring, and Meditations on Gratitude; poetry and photo books which were easier to self-publish than to seek a not to seek a publisher company. This blog allows me to write for an interested audience because I write poetry and personal essays. I write for a friendly audience and present to you a slice of my writing. Perhaps you will enjoy what you read.
