The Step, Part I

I took a step of wondering . . .

“What if” God were really pursuing me,
Like a friend said.
If God were real . . .
“What if” their myths and fanciful Bible tales
Were not that . . .
But truth I had disbelieved in ignorance.

What must He look like;
Be like
Does He really know me?
Love me, like some say?
Have a purpose for me,
A plan,

Better than mine has been?

Will He punish me, if I stop going my way?
And let Him be my Father? . . .

Will He even show up, if I turn?
Or simply ignore my presence.
How angry He must be!
If I am created,
And my life is not a cosmic coincidence . . .
Like I heard somewhere . . .
How can I face Him?
If sin is a thing,
A truly wicked thing, and my name 

Is shame,
Am I too late?

But I am failing from hunger;
Sinking in sorrow;
Evil has overtaken me,

I am worn to the point of death . . .

Father,
Are
You
There?

I stand in the center of the road,
I look back at despair.
I look forward toward hope.

      Success relied on having all three ready to go and then posting them in backwards order as quickly as possible. You were just quicker than I was, I think! I applaud your speed! Thanks for reading, Robert! Have a blessed season!

About The Music Links Below

I don't own, and have no claim on, these music videos. The following are simply links inside my website pointing back to the original locations of the videos. The names of the creators of these videos are cited wherever possible, and only "embedding-enabled" selections are used.

The Basic Christian Library

"Mere Christianity" by C.S. Lewis. This is fundamentally what Christianity is all about.

"The Case for Christ" by Lee Strobel. Another converted atheist presents His compelling case for believing in Jesus.

"Left To Tell" by Imaculee Ilibagiza. This profound work is her own extraordinary story of endurance, discovery of the Holy Spirit, grace, healing, and an astonishingly compelling account of the necessity for forgiveness.

Compelling Christian Fiction Reads

"The Circle" 4-book series by Ted Dekker.
A man is the bridge between two very different worlds. Sound familiar? Can he save both? This T.D. work is brilliant in my book.

"This Present Darkness" and "Piercing the Darkness" by Frank E. Peretti. Tales of spiritual warfare from a unique perspective. Stirred a small controversy, but sold millions. What are we Christians afraid of? Hey, it's fiction!

My Signature Story

"I AM NOT MY OWN" is the piece that inspired the building of this site. It is the story that this site, as well as my life, is centered around. This letter to you is the one i would most like for you to read out of all the ones you will find here, because it describes how profoundly the works of Christ and the power of the Holy Spirit can change one human life.

For Your Reading Enjoyment, This Is Like A Park, Use It, Enjoy It, and Leave Everything Where You Found It.

The content here's not to be used,

But to only be read and perused.

If you copy it off,

My lawyer's not soft,

And your fortune is mine - you got sued!
