Harshness/Tenderness


It’s interesting to me how many prefer harshness. A harsh word, a stepping-on of toes, a strong word, something that cuts; from a point of presentation or reception. I have observed, as I have posted various things over the years, how some just enjoy truth in a harsh tone. It’s curious. Read More...

We go to friends, doctors, counselors, etc. when the help we need resides in the one we refuse to seek. I am a firm believer that the Lord will often use friends, doctors, counselors, etc. But I believe our benevolent God is willing and eager to meet our need.
