Where's Your Edge?


The edge is the point of almost falling off...from friends, family, life, a job. You're done or want to be. My edge is what makes me stumble, fall, grip tighter or want to give up and it's different for everyone.

I wonder how many people are hanging off the edge right now, barely able to hang on.

Some are calling out for help, others have given up and are contemplating letting go.

And then there's the church, most of us at the top of the cliff and a safe distance away from danger.

God's given each of us a talent, whether you know what that is or are continuing to search. Others choose to ignore and don't care what their "calling" is.

Jesus told stories that people of his time related to...crops, inheritance, stones, foundation, temples.

Our stories are relatable. Some will preach. Many will cause you to fall on your face (and I will not define that). Demons will flee, depression lift, the call of God louder than the worlds to an individual who's been looking for Him, consciously or not.

Other stories will be so subtle, they look like the world in their quagmire, like the prodigal son eating and sleeping with the pigs.

 It all comes down to the Great Commission. There are some people only an arms reach from you. Maybe you have the longest rope in your hands, but have ignored it's presence or refused to cast it out for various reasons, most of them fear-based.

People are waiting for your message. Even those hanging and longing to be saved or just left alone, have a truth and a testimony that God is just waiting to use for His glory.

Psalm 38

Book Spotlight - All the Angels Stood by Laura J. Marshall

This is the last week in Staci Schofield's life. Her birthday is on Monday, which is also the day she plans to die. Poetic, seeing as her mother disappeared on the night of her own birthday. But when a popular guy from school, Rush, befriends Staci, will her plans change?

Rush sees demons clinging to Staci and nothing has worked so far to help her. What will make a difference in her life? A friend, an intercessor? How do you help someone move from 'take my life' to 'Lord, preserve me'?

Book Spotlight - Imperfect Cowboy by Suzanne D. Williams

Cowboy, Gray Sterret, accepted the job at Alabama McCall's ranch unprepared for the scope of the work. The barn is full of swallows, the bunk house crumbling, a mile of fencing down, and her driveway washed in.
Worse, she's naïve and innocent, things he's not. He's made big mistakes, and she deserves so much better than a man like him.

When time together and body heat result in one night together, his self-destruction hits rock bottom. For every bad action he's made, he'll reap ten in return, and no one can fix him. Not two little girls struck by sudden tragedy. Not the beautiful woman with the key to his heart.

A faith-searching story of inward struggle by best-selling author, co-creator of THE EDGE, SUZANNE D. WILLIAMS.

Gray’s frustrations rushed out, and he whirled, releasing a grunt. He trailed his gaze around the dilapidated farm. As she’d said, this wasn’t a ranch. It was a house on a few untended acres with a handful of neglected animals and a …

Book Spotlight - Fifty Shades of Faithful by Mary C. Findley

Sam and Vivian Tucker are not exactly conventional Christian marriage counselors. But they do have some life experience with "Song of Solomon marriage". These short stories mix suspense, humor, and romance with advice on relationship troubles. Adultery, bondage, spouse abuse, "things we don't talk about," sibling conflict, and why marriage is a good idea even if you're busy rescuing trafficked children.
There is no graphic or explicit content in this book, but there are some eyebrow-raising bits of advice about trust and honesty, playful communication to create desire, and gentle roleplaying within marriage.
