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.

Eating fish
We all know that when you eat fish you will usually come across a bone or two no matter how carefully the fish has been filleted.  We also know that the bones aren't digestible and should be spit out.  Fish bones, in fact, can be dangerous; but that fact never kept me from eating and appreciating

A history lesson
Over the past months, I've discovered the classics from Sir Walter Scott, James Fenimore Cooper, St. Augustine to Andrew Murray.  Of course, most of these volumes were written in the early 1800's.  Unlocking the labyrinth of historical fact wrapped around the old English prose of that earlier cent
