The Truth About Worrying
Donald Miller
By Donald Miller

I had a pretty good revelation the other day and it was this:
Things almost always turn out fine.

It was a good time for me to have that revelation because I’d just sat down to write when I got a call reminding me about an appointment I’d completely forgotten. I’d have to rush out the door to make it, forfeiting my writing session. And I hate forfeiting my writing sessions.

On the subway, I had a bad attitude. I thought about how I was going to get behind on the book and how I resented having to keep this appointment. Then it hit me…

Have You Given Up on Your Dreams?

Henri the painter is one of Steinbeck’s quirky characters in Cannery Row. He’s known for the unique and intricate boats he builds, often taking years to work on each one.

But there’s something odd about Henri. He never finishes a boat. When it’s almost completed, he takes it apart and begins anew, having no intention of ever putting the boat in the water. Two of his friends discuss his behavior…

How Jesus Wants Us to View the World

I love Eugene Peterson’s translation of Matthew 6:

Jesus says, “Your eyes are windows into your body. If you open your eyes wide in wonder and belief, your body fills up with light. If you life squinty-eyed in greed and distrust, your body is a dank cellar. If you pull the blinds on your windows, what a dark life you will have.”

So here’s a confession. I often live in the darkness. I often do not trust people. In the world of Facebook and Twitter where you can get criticized on the hour, distrust is easy to build.

But the truth is…

“Who Did God Wire You To Be?” by Bob Goff

Have you ever considered that we are the best evidence of God’s creative expression? Forget snowflakes; just look at your friends.

They act as if the bible is a code of conduct; but it’s not. Instead, it’s a narrative about Jesus’ authority and the opportunity to do life with Him.

Why I’m Not More Public About My Faith

By Donald Miller

Occasionally I get criticized for being less public about my faith than others. This criticism always strikes me as odd because I’ve written six or seven books largely about faith, but nevertheless I understand where it’s coming from.

Many are willing to take public stands on issues, tweet daily scriptures, chime in on wide church arguments and so forth. I normally don’t, and that can at times seem as though I’m not willing to publicly identify my faith as loudly.

But nothing can be further from the truth…
