Gems From Pastor Jim – 11/27/2018

by Jim Hughes

CrossProv. 31:10-12 Who can find a virtuous and capable wife? She is worth more than precious rubies. Her husband can trust her, and she will greatly enrich his life. She will not hinder him but help him all her life.

In a world that no longer holds marriage up with the values that it used to, today’s verses remind us to marry with integrity. Much of the problems couples have today could be avoided if more thought was given to whom we marry. A virtuous and capable wife doesn’t just become that way after she is married. The character of the heart is established long before the wedding ceremony. It is essential for the success of the marriage that the couple takes the time and puts in the effort to find a companion that has godly character before a commitment is made to marry.

A spouse who is godly in heart is worth waiting for. It is much better to never marry than to marry someone who is not compatible with you spiritually. If a couple is unequally yoked together all kinds of discord will crop up in the marriage.

It is a wonderful thing to be in a marriage where trust is not a problem. It bodes well for life outside the home when there is no fear that one’s spouse may act in an ungodly way outside the home. The life of a couple who trusts each other is enriched greatly.

The goal of any marriage ought to be to help, and not hinder, each other’s life. When a couple lives this way, their marriage is truly blessed with much happiness.

The character of the heart determines the character of the marriage.

So you want to write a book

Send to Kindle

by Suzanne D. Williams

A lot of blogs start off this way and then proceed to give the ins and outs of writing. This isn’t one of those. Instead, what’s impressed on me is less the how-to of creating a book than what I wish I’d known when my life as an author began. Anyone can write a book, given they take enough time to learn the process, but not anyone SHOULD write a book unless they are willing change their lives to fit the profession. And by that, I don’t mean time and money spent, though those are both important. Instead, I’m talking about character.

I witnessed an exchange on social media, an author and her friends roasting a woman for leaving her a 1-star review. Apparently, the buyer purchased her book by mistake, only to discover the content wasn’t what she expected. The review said nothing about the book but was the buyer’s complaint about how she felt deceived. I get the author’s frustration. Any 1-star review is hard to receive, and, yes, I agree the buyer shouldn’t have left a review because she was unhappy with her own shortsightedness. But after reading the comments the author made, I would never purchase any of her books (and thus support her) or share any of her book sales posts (and help her find new readers). I have no respect for her at all.

There’s that little word – respect. As your mom and dad would tell you (or your coach or teacher or grandparent), respect is something you earn through right behavior, and as an author, the term “right behavior” encompasses several things.

Keep your mouth shut.

You cannot talk negatively about other authors, readers, agents, editors, etcetera, openly in any public forum. What you say in public, someone like me will read. I guarantee it. There’s no replying to reviews, trashing another writer, or venting because you feel justified. Just keep your mouth shut and your opinions to yourself.

Contrary to popular thought right now, what you think about anything or anyone is no one’s business. The authors I have the greatest respect for do their job to make others feel better, not worse. They “turn the other cheek” when offense comes or, at least, keep their thoughts between themselves and trusted friends. Social media is not the place to air your dirty laundry.

Be generous.

I’ve written 127 books to date. I can afford to give them away. Sending out an ebook to my subscribers is painless and, furthermore, I love doing it. Not because I expect a review, although those are nice, but because it makes someone happy that day. I also give away paperbacks, from time to time, and will correspond with anyone who contacts me with questions or comments.

This is part of being an author. I’ve chosen to put my thoughts in a public arena and must acknowledge they are out there, that people will read them and have something to say. You cannot write a book with a chip on your shoulder, holding a sign, “leave me alone,” because I can guarantee you 100%, readers will not hang around long.

But WHAT you say and HOW you say it is important.

Grow a backbone.

This was the hardest thing for me, and frankly, when I got started, I wasn’t prepared mentally for the challenge of being an author. It’s more than stringing sentences together, more than seeing your name on a book cover or a top-100 list. You must hold your head high when the mud starts slinging. Someone will buy your book and not like it. Someone will criticize your intent, your style, your genre. At some point, that story that twenty people gave 5-stars will receive 1-star from someone who shouldn’t have bought the book in the first place.

I remember with my first book, MISSING, a male reader picked it up expecting a war novel, not a romance. It’s aggravating to be misunderstood. Another 1-star I received, the reader only wrote “boring” as her review. That’s it. One word and all the hard work, all the positivity I’d received, felt like so much hot air.

“Spine” is developed through time and effort and hardened through hearing the criticism. Though some people are less bothered by what others have to say, everyone has a weak point. Know yours, weep and cry and wail with your friends, then pick yourself up and pretend like you didn’t notice.

You’re not alone in your pain. I’ve been there, and so have my writer-friends. Be proud of what you do, no matter what anyone else has to say about it. But “act right” when trouble comes your way. Because this is a public profession that requires skill and strength. People can and will act crazy. How you respond to it is as important as your ability to write. 

How could God make anything good and lasting of this?

Faith’s Checkbook: Acquiring Perseverance

Send to Kindle

by Charles Haddon Spurgeon

“The LORD thy God will put out those nations before thee by little and little”   (Deuteronomy 7:22).

We are not to expect to win victories for the LORD Jesus by a single blow. Evil principles and practices die hard. In some places it takes years of labor to drive out even one of the many vices which defile the inhabitants. We must carry on the war with all our might, even when favored with little manifest success. Our business in this world is to conquer it for Jesus. We are not to make compromises but to exterminate evils. We are not to seek popularity but to wage unceasing war with iniquity. Infidelity, popery, drink, impurity, oppression, worldliness, error; these are all to be “put out.” The LORD our God can alone accomplish this. He works by His faithful servants, and blessed be His name. He promises that He will so work. “Jehovah thy God will put out those nations before thee.” This He will do by degrees that we may learn perseverance, may increase in faith, may earnestly watch, and may avoid carnal security. Let us thank God for a little success and pray for more. Let us never sheathe the sword till the whole land is won for Jesus. Courage, my heart! Go on little by little, for many littles will make a great whole.

Mapped Out Murders: A NANoWriMo Project

Send to Kindle

by Mary C Findley

mapped out murders

My NaNoWrimo project for this year is called Mapped Out Murders. NaNoWriMo, by the way, is a project to write at least 50,000 words on a new novel project during the month of November. You need to write a little under 1700 words a day to reach that goal. I won’t tell you how far behind I am, because it’s very far. I used to get very stressed out about being behind, but right now I’m just happy to be writing pretty much every day, and to have this story to work on.

Mapped Out Murders is the story of Sarah Groben, a homicide detective. She has a very strange quirk that keeps getting her in trouble at the precinct. She won’t be alone with her male colleagues. That means no male partner. Yet Sarah has had the highest case closure rate of any detective in the department for years. When Sarah’s partner Rachel comes down with the flu, the captain orders her to go alone to the scene of a murder. The victim has been stabbed multiple times. When Sarah looks up to find the witness who called in the crime, she is shocked to see an old pastor friend and her husband, Don, who happens to be the department chaplain.

Mature coupel sittign in sofa and using smartphone

Don becomes her temporary partner as they investigate a series of killings linked by Google maps taking them from location to location. All but one of the victims are middle eastern men. I got the idea for this story from two recent events: One is the scorn endured by Vice President Mike Pence over his refusal to be alone with a woman not his wife, and the #MeToo Movement. I wondered what would happen if a woman took the same stand against being in potentially compromising situations with men. The other inspiration was a recent Voice of the Martyrs conference, where an Iranian man told the story of multiple Christian leaders in Iran, including his father, being murdered and left with a paper in each pocket with an address where another body could be found.

VOM

Detective Sarah Grobin and her police chaplain husband Don struggle to solve a string of murders featuring the brutal early morning stabbing deaths of middle aged men, all in the same day. Map printouts found on the bodies lead Sarah to each murder site but the third body doesn’t fit the perfect profile.

From mugging to hate crime against middleastern immigrants to a sudden dead end, the motive just won’t stay neatly pinned down. Worse still, Sarah and Don fear withholding evidence when they discover what appears to be the one sure connection between the first two victims. Revealing it might endanger a fragile work by hidden believers ministering to those who may have left Islam and embraced Christianity.

A man and a woman of european appearance communicate with each other.

Nasir Natal struggles to understand the murder of his father while grappling with a growing mountain of contradictions between the abusive, unfaithful man he knew and what he learns from those who knew a completely different man. Secrets kept by the victims and family members like himself muddy the already turbulent waters as the body count starts rising again. Nasir is forced to cooperate with his tempestuous sister Pira as well as the strange detective and her husband.

Sarah is at her wits’ end until a timid stranger constrained by culture breaks free to admit she may have the key to unmasking the Mapped Out Murders killer.

Excerpt:

“What’s your read on this guy?” Homicide detective Sarah Groben asked as she and her husband Don waited in the hallway. “I’m sorry. Maybe I shouldn’t ask you to help with this. You’re still trying to process his father’s death. At least someone is mourning for him.”

“No, it’s okay. And you’re right,” Don replied.” It’s hard to miss the fact that Nasir’s not grief-stricken. He was genuinely surprised, though, when he saw his father’s face. And he certainly doesn’t seem to be relieved, or happy, or anything that would suggest guilt.”

“I agree. That was a look of shock. Curiosity, too, maybe. But for a second, he looked angry. Why would he be angry at his father?”

“There had to be something seriously wrong in the family for Imar to leave them, and to leave Iran. That was another shock to his son, finding out Imar had come here. He never talked much about his past. We try to take the view that whatever happened to a person who comes to us, it’s under the blood, but it’s so strange that Imar wouldn’t tell us he had family members living.”

“That emergency contact card was fresh and new-looking,” Sarah pointed out. “If he’d found out where his son was, why did he never contact him?”

“Can I see the card?” Don asked. Sarah handed the white pasteboard to him. He turned it over and gasped.

“What is it?”

“It was dark, so I didn’t notice it when you showed me before, but this is one of the cards Imar had made up for his ministry. “It’s all embossing, with no actual ink. You can hardly tell what it’s for, but if you hold it up to the light, you can see he had it specially printed.”

Fears cast out,” Sarah read. “Tongues loosed. What does that mean?”

Gems From Pastor Jim – 11/20/2018

Send to Kindle

by Jim Hughes

CrossProv. 30:7-9 O God, I beg two favors from you before I die. First, help me never to tell a lie. Second, give me neither poverty nor riches! For if I grow rich, I may deny you and say, “Who is the Lord?” And if I am too poor, I may steal and thus insult God’s holy name.

If you were to be given two things from God before you die, what would you want them to be? What are the two things that you want more than anything else? What you would ask for says a lot about your heart.

The writer of this Proverb asked first for the integrity of his heart so he would never tell a lie. It was important to him that he would always tell the truth. It certainly is a noble thing to want from God. I wonder if we have the same kind of a desire for our soul. Are we concerned about the integrity of our hearts? From what I observe in the lives of many, I don’t think this is a priority. We seem to be content with mediocre living in Christ and not wanting to be more like him as we should. Do you always tell the truth?

The second thing on the writer’s mind was contentment with his life situation. He wanted a heart that did not crave after the things of life. He understood the danger of relying on stuff for his satisfaction in life instead of God. He wanted no part of that. He valued his relationship with God and was determined to not let the riches of the world rob him of fellowship with God. It is something that we must all think about. Do we let our quest for “better living” get in the way of our relationship with God? He also was concerned about what affect not having enough would have on his soul. He didn’t want to be in a position where he felt he would be compelled to steal in order to survive in the world. He wanted enough to live on so that he could continue to live rightly before God and always honor His holy name.

The two things mentioned in today’s verses are indeed noble desires to have. May we too desire to always have hearts of integrity as we live in relationship with God. May we too always value our relationship with the Lord so much that we seek for His protection from anything that would get in the way of us having pure hearts before Him.

Holidays Are Not Overrated

Send to Kindle

by Rebekah Beene

Danny and I both grew up with big extended families. He even had a great grandmother among his list. The huge families with loads of cousins has now dwindled. He has two uncles by marriage left and I have one aunt left and she’s in her 90’s. The oldest cousin alive is 76 years old. Our family is aging. What was once an opportunity for huge family get together, holidays are now much smaller. I don’t know how to make a smaller holiday meal, so I just make the same amount and have loads of leftovers to send home with others or to enjoy for several days.

I could stay sad and despondent over lost giant holiday gatherings. But that does no one any good, especially me. We will make every holiday as joyful, fun and blessed as possible. By thanking God for all the blessings we do have, we will keep the blues away! They are not welcome in my house – don’t let the blues be welcome at yours.

Oh beloved, holidays are not overrated. But you are enough reason to celebrate. Jesus never had a family Thanksgiving, but He stayed full of joy and had purpose all of His life. You too can have joy and purpose. Your hopes and desires cannot be built around stuff, people or events. They must be built in – from within. Your choice in preparation, planning and meeting the day must include things that give you reason to live, not hopes to die. Focus on the good stuff and there’s always something good if you look for it. Count those blessings – you might be amazed at how very blessed you are. Focus on the Lord – believe it or not on your worst days, the saddest, most melancholy, hardest to face days – He is focusing on you – giving you hope, peace, joy, favor and a more heavenly perspective. Your life situation, whatever is not perfect about this season for you – is temporary. Open the window curtains, breathe the chilly air, run around the house, pray, praise and shout aloud – God You are so good! Sounds silly but it will relieve you are things that want to bury you down instead of lift you up. It’s okay to lift yourself up as well as others! You are a favored child of the Only Living God and you are seated at His banquet table!

God loves you and He’s for you. Prep for the holidays, give yourself lots of slack, think about the goodness of God and spend lots of time talking with Him about everything. And live, holidays or not, in the Light of His wonderful, overwhelming, never ending blessings of faith!

Romans 14:17 17 For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking, but of righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit

Proverbs 10:28 The prospect of the righteous is joy…

Philippians 4:4-8 Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice! Let your gentle spirit be known to all men. The Lord is near. Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally…whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things.

Faith’s Checkbook: Weapons Doomed to Fail

Send to Kindle

by Charles Haddon Spurgeon

“No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn”   (Isaiah 54:17).

There is great clatter in the forges and smithies of the enemy. They are I making weapons wherewith to smite the saints. They could not even do as much as this if the LORD of saints did not allow them; for He has created the smith that bloweth the coals in the fire. But see how busily they labor! How many swords and spears they fashion! It matters nothing, for on the blade of every weapon you may read this inscription: It shall not Prosper. But now listen to another noise: it is the strife of tongues. Tongues are more terrible instruments than can be made with hammers and anvils, and the evil which they inflict cuts deeper and spreads wider. What will become of us now? Slander, falsehood, insinuation, ridicule-these are poisoned arrows; how can we meet them? The LORD God promises us that, if we cannot silence them, we shall, at least, escape from being ruined by them. They condemn us for the moment, but we shall condemn them at last and forever. The mouth of them that speak lies shall be stopped, and their falsehoods shall be turned to the honor of those good men who suffered by them.

Encouragement for Writers

Send to Kindle

by Precarious Yates

I have heard from so many writers recently who feel like they can’t go on. It’s a long hard marathon, and when you have little support, it feels interminable.

“Should I keep going?”

“Is my writing even good enough?”

“What is the point if all anyone wants to read is smut?”

It seems like the devil is prowling like a lion in the camp of Christian writers (both those who write for the Christian audience, and those who write for the general audience). He’s seeking who he can devour.

But the Lion of the tribe of Judah is getting ready to roar! He is going to roar over you with His encouragement!

We have a calling to tell a story, or many stories. The Lion of the tribe of Judah wants to roar through us! If saying that is not enough evidence, here’s some scriptural evidence:

But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light. – 1 Peter 2:9

And the LORD answered me: “Write the vision; make it plain on tablets, so he may run who reads it.  – Habakkuk 2:2

The Lord gives the word; the women who announce the news are a great host  – Psalm 68:11 (This can apply to you even if you are a man!)

Now there are also many other things that Jesus did. Were every one of them to be written, I suppose that the world itself could not contain the books that would be written. – John 21:25

  1. When David was discouraged, he strengthened himself in the Lord. (1 Sam. 30:6b)
  2. If this wasn’t encouragement enough, start praising God for His goodness.
  3. Praise the LORD! Praise, O servants of the LORD, praise the name of the LORD!
  4. Blessed be the name of the LORD from this time forth and forevermore!
  5. From the rising of the sun to its setting, the name of the LORD is to be praised!
  6. The LORD is high above all nations, and his glory above the heavens!
  7. Who is like the LORD our God, who is seated on high,
  8. who looks far down on the heavens and the earth?
  9. He raises the poor from the dust and lifts the needy from the ash heap,
  10. to make them sit with princes, with the princes of his people.
  11. He gives the barren woman a home, making her the joyous mother of children. Praise the LORD!  – Psalms 11
  12. God shall arise, his enemies shall be scattered; and those who hate him shall flee before him!
  13. As smoke is driven away, so you shall drive them away; as wax melts before fire, so the wicked shall perish before God!
  14. But the righteous shall be glad; they shall exult before God; they shall be jubilant with joy!
  15. Sing to God, sing praises to his name; lift up a song to him who rides through the deserts; his name is the LORD; exult before him!
  16. Father of the fatherless and protector of widows is God in his holy habitation.
  17. God settles the solitary in a home; he leads out the prisoners to prosperity, but the rebellious dwell in a parched land.  – Psalm 68:1-6

Now, pick up your pen! You have an adventure ahead!

Gems From Pastor Jim – 11/13/2018

Send to Kindle

by Jim Hughes

CrossProv. 30:5-6 Every word of God proves true. He defends all who come to him for protection. Do not add to his words, or he may rebuke you, and you will be found a liar.

It would do well for every believer to know these verses. There is a lot of liberty that people take with God’s Word. We need to stop the nonsense and let God speak His mind instead of trying to speak it for Him.

Every word of God proves true. It stands on its own merit. Whatever God says is what is. The past has happened just as God said it did. Things are happening today just as God said it would. And, what is yet to come will happen just as God said it will. No one can change the truthfulness of what God has said. God’s Word is trustworthy because it comes from God.

We must be very careful about this. It is so easy to be led away from God’s truth. Satan is very good at getting man to twist the Word to say what he wants it to say. We must examine all that we read and hear carefully in light of what God says. We must stay close to God so that it is His voice we hear and not someone else’s. We must never get the idea that we have it all figured out and do not need to be taught anymore.

God says he will defend and protect you, and He will. No one can take you away from the Lord if you stay in his fellowship. No matter what man may be able to do physically to you, God will preserve your soul. No matter what may be said about you, God will protect your soul. Nothing in all of creation can harm you if you are living in the shelter of His love.

Do not ignore what God says about you in His Word. He has your life covered if you are living in fellowship with Him. The Lord will never leave you or forsake you. He is always vigilant and will never let you get away from Him. He does not have a conditional clause on this truth. Don’t let anyone lead you astray on this. You are safe in Christ. Heaven awaits those who live in Christ. We don’t have to do enough or be good enough to be in the Lord’s protective care. All we have to do is take responsibility for our sins, confess them to Him, accept His forgiveness, and live like we are forgiven. The Lord is on the side of all who do this.
