Wisdom Crieth Without
Inspired by Psalm 1:20-33. I remember the first time I read and pondered this passage and was floored by the judgement of God. Having served 3 combat tours in Iraq, I feel like I have a better understanding or perspective of our shying away from God.
I've already seen Christmas items on the shelves in early October. While I appreciate something other than Halloween stuff, I'm still taken aback with the commercialization and compromise of Christmas and the Great Commission...Here are my thoughts.

Divided Unto Desolation?
Written in Triolet. Inspired by Mark 3:24-25 And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. Concerned about Luke 11:17 ...Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation...I fear God's Word. Luke 11:23 & Mat 12:3

This was a requested write a while back. James 4:14 Whereas ye know not what shall be of the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appreareth for a little time, then vanisheth away.
