For God, who said, 'LET LIGHT SHINE OUT OF DARKNESS,' has shone in our hearts... Here I share my own ponderings about life as seen in the light of God's Word

Postponing the post...
For what are you waiting, hoping, daring to believe? An unexpected late snowfall has dumped a chill on the first signs of spring at our house. They say hope deferred makes the heart sick. (Prov.13:12) So what’s the antidote? I suppose it’s something like being patient, and establishing our hearts in the truth of what’s to come…I have been considering this week a related idea: the fight of faith. What’s that about? Unfortunately, these thoughts have not materialized into a post for two reasons:
One is that I was busy composing a book review of The End of Reason, an excellent resource for addressing the underlying inconsistencies of the 'new atheists'. [Click the title to link to that review]
The other is that today, the day that these thoughts on the fight of faith were to have materialized in print, we woke to a phone call saying our grand-daughter is about to be born in a far-off city... and that's where we are heading with hopes in hand tomorrow, so the post proposition was pre-empted till a later date.....
The fight of faith. It remains an on-going battle, even today, for peace and trust, and coherence of thought minus the fears, minus the tumult of rushed plans. For God has given us a spirit of love, power and a sound mind--all we need for today.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you'll check out the book review and keep it in mind if you ever need to say a timely word in defense of your faith to one who thinks it's all magic and dangerous delusion.
