48

by tim walker i never thought i would live past 30. call it a romanticized notion. i was a moody john hughes anti-hero. a misunderstood, no one gets me misfit wrapped in preppy clothes. wanting to be in the spotlight, but not really. wanting to be loved, but not knowing…

escape

by tim walker if you’ve watched a lot of movies, or even the evening news, you know this truth . . . escapes are hard. people don’t just walk out free and clear. well, that is unless you are the apostle Paul and Silas experiencing a divine jail break (Acts…

naked

i don’t have a monopoly on words. i realize that i’m not the only writer in the world. there was a time when that immobilized me. i quit writing because i felt like my words couldn’t hold their own in a world where people can so freely express themselves. but…

the taming of the sass mouth

i’ve always had a wicked tongue. i can slice and dice with the best of them. i’m not physically strong, but i can hold my own in a cut-down, and there’s an evil pride that comes over me with a well-delivered, verbal blow. i feel like a super villain engaged…

enough for today

an expensive night at the ER. a car that’s in the shop for yet another repair. looming big expenses in the next few months that i’m just not sure where the money will come from. i’m a pretty good budgeter. i squirrel away funds. but these things are beyond my…

400 years. that’s how long God was silent between the Old and New Testament. the last thing anyone heard from God was through the prophet Malachi. then 400 years. our country isn’t even 400 years. 400 years ago, was 1614. i can’t imagine God being silent for that long. and…

out of the ashes

when it comes to movies, i handed in my man card a long time ago. while many guys i know include movies like Gladiator and Braveheart in their favorites, mine include Shadowlands, The Help and The Incredibles. so with that disclaimer, it should come as no surprise that i added…

the gospel of right choices

there’s more than one way to get to where you need to go. it’s why i don’t just look up directions on the maps app on my phone. i also check out google maps. sometimes they are in sync, other times they provide different ways to get to my desired…

in the shadow of plenty

“In this world you will have trouble . . .” Jesus said those words to His disciples, in John 16:33. and thousands of years later, we can all give a resounding “Amen” to that, can’t we? in the years you’ve been living and breathing, you undoubtedly experienced some degree of…

no more mr. nice guy

somewhere in my 40s, i’ve lost something. not my vision—even though i can’t read small print. or my waistline—it’s there somewhere. no, i lost something else. something much more valuable. and now days after turning 47, i find myself having to work to regain it. i lost my kindness and gentleness….
