There will always be those who think we lack intelligence by believing something we can’t see, but the evidence is all around us.  Take a look at the beauty and majesty of this world.  Think of what it looked like before sin corrupted it.  See the craftsmanship of God in the birth of a new child – each finger and toe perfectly designed – each body part having a purpose.  Look at the intelligence of humanity.  Our minds didn’t just evolve from some big bang that occurred millions of years ago.  God planted that into our brains to separate us from the animals.  Observe the glory of each bit of vegetation – how seeds when nurtured and protected grow into something beautiful and useful.  The mathematical design of life is so complex we can’t even begin to understand every facet of it.

By not understanding, doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist.  When we’re troubled by those who don’t share our beliefs, we shouldn’t become angry with them or try to engage them in arguments.  The only thing that will lead to is frustration and defeat.  If they don’t accept what we believe, nothing we say or do is going to change that.  Their minds are already made up.  What we can do is pray for them and care about them.  Our prayers should include our love for them and our desire that they someday will understand that God is the only truth that exists in a world of darkness.

We base our beliefs totally on faith.  Faith is believing something that we don’t understand but still know it’s true.  It’s a concept that isn’t much known in our world.  We need something to back up our reasoning.  God doesn’t need explanation.  He just is and the evidence of His existence is all around us.  We simply need to look for it.  It isn’t complicated, and that drives intellectuals crazy.


As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on

  1. Kathy this hits home when I think of my Madison. Please pray for her, that the veil will be lifted from her eyes and the darkness from her heart. That she would know and accept Christ as her Lord and Savior- thank you

      I absolutely will, Stacey? God hears our prayers. We need to allow Him to do the work. It’s tough when your kids go through spiritual difficulties, because we always want to fix them. Sometimes they just need to find their own way. Love you💕


  2. I think that in another decade or two, geneticists will openly conclude that the information in DNA could not possibly have gotten here without intelligent design. Their current combo of 14 billion years, random mutations and natural selection is not, in my opinion, remotely capable of producing the complex information in DNA. Faith, like trust, is inherently reasonable and based on level-headed analysis of evidence, not merely on the traditions and emotions of the religion that dominates our part of the world.
