Celebrating Superiority

Have you ever noticed that the sins you hate most may just be the sins closest to your heart? I hate the sin of envy, and I think I hate it so much because it is so often very near to me, just waiting to strike, to cause me to mourn when I ought to rejoice, or to rejoice when I ought to mourn. “Rejoice with those who rejoice,” Scripture tells me. It is rarely that easy. I wish it …

When the Critics Rave, I Weep

Reflecting on the sin of envy. It is healthy, I think, to reflect at times upon the evil of my heart. This seems like a terribly negative thing to do, but I believe it is an important discipline of my spiritual life that I seek to discover where evil lurks within my heart.

Creativity Cramp (2007 Edition)

I am a Web designer and as such I have to be creative on an on-going basis. Every time a client calls and asks me to design a site I have to be creative and come up with a new design–something that will look attractive, that will be original and will fit the “feel” of the company or ministry or person.

A couple of years ago I read Ten Questions To Diagnose Your Spiritual Health which was written by Don Whitney. I posted …

I recently read Ten Questions To Diagnose Your Spiritual Health which was written by Don Whitney. I posted a review of it …

Got Creativity?

I am looking for a domain name for another project I am thinking of starting. I am working on a “plausibility study” for a site dedicated to Christian music news and reviews. It would be a project I would take on in addition to this blog (though this site will always be my foremost priority)! So I am looking for a name for the site, and of course a domain name to go along with it. If you are the …

Creativity Cramp

I think I will coin a phrase today. The phrase I will heretofore take credit for is Creativity Cramp. I am a Web designer. As such I have to be creative on an on-going basis. Every time a client calls and asks me to make him a site I have to be creative and come up with a new design – something that will look attractive, original and will fit the “feel” of the company. This is often quite difficult …
