Not My Will

Revolworks

“God's plan for your life is happening right now. It doesn't begin when you get married or when you get your dream job or when everything feels perfect. You are in the plan.” — Tara Leigh Cobble

The concept of “God’s will” was the hot topic of spiritual writers in the mid-80s. It seemed everyone had a definition of what “God’s will” meant, but few felt satisfactory.

Questions

Revolworks

“A rabbi walking through a city was stopped by a centurion.  The centurion asked, ‘Who are you and what are you doing?’ The rabbi thought for a moment, and in turn asked, ‘How much are you paid for doing this?’  A bit perplexed, the centurion said, ‘Two denarii a week. Why?’ The rabbi said, ‘I’ll pay you four denarii a week to stand outside my house every day and ask me those questions.’” — Unknown

What It's Not About

Revolworks

“Love God and do whatever you want.” - Augustine

Purpose and Perversion

Revolworks

“You possess a potent force that you either use, or misuse, hundreds of times every day.” - J. Martin Kohe

Inventors create products with a purpose in mind. Alexander Graham Bell created the telephone for long-distance communication. Wilbur and Orville Wright invented the airplane for advanced transportation. The makers of Sudafed developed pseudoephedrine to relieve cold and flu symptoms. And Philo Farnsworth invented the television to allow people around the world to learn about each other, in the hopes of settling differences around a conference table instead of the battlefields of world wars.

Life From Death

“Did he die well?” - Anonymous

Call me morbid, but I love funerals. They teach me about life.

My favorite eulogy, you ask? Gregg Kremer portrayed the best quality in his father, Ken. Already wise in his mid-20s, Gregg approached the microphone. He bore all the markings of a Nebraska farmer: deeply tanned forearms, snowy white forehead, rough hands and a slow drawl.
