Frankly, On Faith: At the Table

by Molly Jo Realy @MollyJoRealy

Frankly, On Faith.

Frankly, On Faith.

The family table is where it all happens: It’s where the day is discussed over great food. Plans are made. Moments shared. It’s community at its finest. Serious discussion and laughable antics abound.

And when your chair is empty, God sends out His Son to find you and bring you back.

Because you’re that important to Him.

You bring something to the table no one else can: You bring you.

“Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex!
Your workmanship is marvelous how well I know it.”
~Psalm 139:14 NLT

Frankly, On Faith . . . : Start at the Beginning

by Molly Jo Realy @MollyJoRealy

Frankly, On Faith.

Frankly, On Faith.

I hate when there’s so much information coming at me that things get lost in translation. Too many people talking at once, too many this-that-and-the-other-thing. A lot of jumping ahead and jumping ship.

That’s when I put up my hands. Whoa. Stop. I can’t keep up.

Take it slower. Take it one bite at a time.

Start at the beginning.

Get the story to me, completely, in a way I can understand it.

And when we’re halfway through what I should know, but don’t, let’s do it again:

Reverse. Start at the … read the rest. . .

Frankly, On Faith: What’s the Worst That Could Happen?

by Molly Jo Realy @MollyJoRealy

Frankly, On Faith.

Frankly, On Faith.

We say it a lot when trying to embolden ourselves to move in a direction we’re not entirely sure of.

“What’s the worst that could happen?”

But do we really want to know the answer?

If we knew the answer, would we hesitate?

What if we didn’t know the finish line, but we knew the journey?

What if the not knowing part is where we shine, where we prove to ourselves what we’re made of?

What if that’s where we say okay, yes, I’ll do it?

So, God says, “Hey. I have … read the rest. . .

Frankly, On Faith: God is Not a Game Player, He’s a Team Leader.

by Molly Jo Realy @MollyJoRealy

Frankly, On Faith.

Frankly, On Faith.

God is not a game player in the sense of messing with us. He doesn’t tease or do a bait-and-hook.

But He’s a great Team Leader. He’s honest from the get-go. Transparent in His game plan for us.

God gave up His star player so the rest of the team could win.

He has never changed the rules. He didn’t replace you with a better athlete, because He knows you are His better athlete. For this game you’re in, for the piece on the board that you represent, the cards you’ve been … read the rest. . .

When God Locks You In

Frankly, My Dear . . . : When God Locks You In

Frankly, My Dear . . . : When God Locks You In

I’m a bit behind in reading my Bible on the One-Year plan. Okay, to be honest, I’m about 331 days behind. What can I say? It’s been that type of year. Well, now that I have a in-and-out-of-office career, I figure I can listen to the Bible through the app on my phone while driving. Less road rage. That’s all I’m sayin’.

I love Genesis. The stories of Creation, the beginning of Man. But I also don’t like it. The beginning of Man … read the rest. . .
