Flash Fiction – “The Price of Liberty”

My first attempt at Flash Fiction. Enjoy! An hour. Then her kids will be off the bus. One hour, uninterrupted, to do with what she wishes. Upper fifties and the sky clear and azure. She should do laundry. Her phone rings. It’s her sister. “What’s up?” “Ah, this election.” “Don’t get me started.” “I’ve never seen such a frenzy.” “I know it.” She grimaces. Sweet-smelling autumn day with warmish breezes and sunshine glinting off windows. Why spoil it with politics? “What are you up to?” “Was just about to go for a bike ride.” She knows now it’s true. “Call...

“Whoever Seeks to Keep His Life Will Lose It”

“Whoever Seeks to Keep His Life Will Lose It”

“Whoever seeks to keep his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life will preserve it” (Luke 17:33). Four summers ago, the summer of 2012, I read the biography of Dietrich Bonhoeffer, a German pastor who was killed after opposing Adolf Hitler. I majored in German in college and even spent a year abroad living in and traveling all over Germany, but I’d never heard of Bonhoeffer. It wasn’t until I read Bonhoeffer’s bio that I saw, for the first time ever, Germany’s history from a spiritual perspective; and the Holy Spirit was bearing witness as I read, that what happened there...

Prayer for America

“The scepter of wickedness shall not remain over the land of the righteous, so that the righteous will not put forth their hands to do wrong” (Ps. 125:3). Lord, You promised that tyranny shall not reign over the territory of the righteous, lest Your people be incited to take up the weapons of the flesh rather than those of the Spirit. We are weary of watching liberty erode, and our country crumble before our very eyes. Let the very foundation stones of this nation testify against its current corruption. Let those who plot evil fall into the nets they themselves have made (Ps 35:8). We...

Christ’s Government: Establishing His Kingdom on Earth

Christ’s Government: Establishing His Kingdom on Earth

God’s supreme objective is the establishment of His kingdom on earth. Jesus told His disciples to pray this way: “Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth as it is in Heaven” (Matthew 6:10, KJV). This is God’s will: that earth should look like Heaven. The church exists to bring heaven to earth. And since we know that this is the Father’s will, we have confidence that when we pray this way, we will receive it (1 John 5:14-15). Demonic opposition, the world system, and sin in our own lives may delay God’s objective, but it will not ultimately stop it. As...

“It is to your advantage that I go away”

“It is to your advantage that I go away”

You stood within arms’ length of Jesus when he stopped the pallbearers in a funeral procession and spoke to a corpse. “Young man, get up!” To everyone’s astonishment and even terror, the dead man sat up on his bier and began to talk. Later, you watched a deadly storm instantly calm when Jesus told it to, and you saw Jesus deliver a raging lunatic from a host of demons. You heard amazing sermons and discussed with Him concepts that were thrilling and new and fathomless. You saw food multiply and you saw people bent over with arthritis immediately straighten. You saw...

A Reward Like Simeon’s

A Reward Like Simeon’s

He was a man whose existence centered on one thing: seeing the Messiah. “There was a man in Jerusalem called Simeon, who was righteous and devout, looking for the consolation of Israel; and the Holy Spirit was upon him. It had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not see death before he had seen the Lord’s Christ. And he came in the Spirit into the temple, and when the parents brought in the child Jesus…Simeon took him in his arms, and blessed God” (Luke 2:25-28). Simeon then prophesied over Jesus, detailing the startling word that He would be a light...

Scenes from Childhood

Coming soon! My newest book, Scenes from Childhood, is a novella set in the romantic Bavarian Alps. The plot deals with the crisis between two adult siblings following the death of their mother. What is a novella? Shorter than a novel and longer than a short story, the novella features taut prose, lots of symbolism, fewer characters and plot lines, and historically centers around events and themes. Stay tuned for more details on Scenes from Childhood, available this month!
