A Simple Life, a Childlike Faith


Changing the world

posted by Linda G. Howard

The theme for soulblindministry is “I’m just a simple guy simply trying to change the world.”  I haven’t followed Daniel Lyons’ blog long enough to know whether his thoughts are right or wrong; but I really admire and love his goal–to change the world.

I was married to a man for 49 years who deeply believed that the Lord had placed him on earth to change the world.  He believed that one day he would be able to invent a machine that would defy gravity and release the secret of energy.  Living with him, I came to share his vision.

Changing the world is what Jesus came to do.  Changing the world is the mission that Jesus left with his disciples.  Think about it twelve.  They were unschooled working men turned the world right side up.  For more than 2000 years the dynamic effect Jesus has left on people have been a passion for change and a desire to help the people of the world release themselves into a supernatural energy force that will propel our planet into “peace on earth, goodwill to men.”

Not matter where I go today, I pray that my life will be an example of God’s peace and the goodwill that demonstrates that the world can change as God comes to live in our hearts and minds through the sacrifice of Jesus.

Friendship Evangelism
For many years, I taught a seminar called "Friendship Evangelism."  The basis of this teaching was that people are much more susceptible to hear the promises of the Gospel, if they know and respect you.  We all have a knowledge of the friendship of David and Jonathan from the Bible.  Even if we o

Overcoming Fatigue
After four days of Camp Agape, my children laugh that I'm in my Camp Coma for about a week.  While it's humorous there is a lot of truth in their designation of my abilities.  There are some things that I've learned from others and from my own experiences regarding physical fatigue. First, this

Explaining grace
In the past weeks, I've been going over some of the key words in our covenant relationship with God.  Perhaps one of the most important words we use is grace. Most of us have learned and maybe we even remember God's Riches At Christ's Expense This is great explanation of grace and

Familiar customs and limited means
When the Biblical young woman, Ruth, married into a Jewish family she understood little about their ways, God or religion.  This is my supposition; but I base the conjecture on facts.  Moabites were shunned by the Israelis.  Decades before, Moab wronged the wandering tribes who desired to trav
