Frankly, On Faith: Faith is Not Magical

Magical Thinking. It’s creating the dots that connect “A” to “B”. If I wake up at 5:38 exactly, it’s a sign I should buy a lottery ticket. Or Because I drank two cups of coffee, the tree sprouted new growth.

Magical Thinking, based on superstitions, is faith gone awry.

Faith believes things will happen due to God’s sovereignty,
not because of our own actions.

Magical Thinking removes God from the equation. Miracle Thinking (Faith) understands that we don’t understand, but still we know it’s going to be okay. Magical Thinking says we … read the rest. . .

Frankly, On Faith: Dig In To Life

You’re weary. A little unsure, a little keeping yourself in the shadows. There’s a lot on your plate and you don’t know how to manage it all.

But you know what? Look around: You’re not alone. Everyone has their own shadows. Everyone has their own food to chew. So don’t compare yours to theirs. And don’t be afraid. The dark is a little scary. Those lumpy potatoes are not what you asked for.

Frankly, On Faith.

We do have something to offer. Every single one of us.

And someone else is waiting to receive it.
