My question is about “compulsive busyness.”  I wake up with eyes wide open and a tight chest as all the things I have to do during this day or this week start jumping out onto the stage of my attention and waving at me, chanting “Look at me!  You promised to write a job recommendation […]

From “Praying Prayers” to Communicating Intimately with God and People

Keith, you talk a lot about prayer being an important part of your life over the past forty-five years, particularly since you made a decision to try to surrender your whole life to the God Jesus called Father.  I have two questions.  First, how and when did you get introduced to praying?  The other question […]

Which Way is THE Way?

Dear Keith, How come some people like you keep going into your inner life and wrestling with deep problems all the time and yet claim to have the Holy Spirit?  I don’t do this, and I’m a happy committed Christian.  My wife is like you and says I’m just not sensitive to spiritual things.  But […]

Confessions of a False Prophet

Keith, some people at my church asked me to lead a Sunday School class, and I agreed.  One Sunday recently the subject of living by faith came up.  After I talked about a couple of my own experiences of faith, I was surprised by the reaction of some of the people in the class.  Most of […]

A Small Key to some Large, Heavy Doors

Last week I wrote about the surprising difficulty I faced in trying to change a lifelong self-defeating behavior—being late to meetings.  This week I want to tell you the story of what has happened since I admitted my problem and asked God to help me solve this irritating and frustrating habit.  Dealing with this one […]

I Can’t, God Can

Keith, you write about problems you’ve faced and what you’ve done about them.  At this stage in your life, what is the most difficult problem you are trying to face and overcome?  And how are you trying to deal with it?  Since I believe that God is in the business of transforming lives, and I […]

Don’t Look Behind the Curtain

Although I am a committed Christian, I have realized that I am also a compulsive “fixer.”  After my family rebelled against my attempts to help them I started working almost constantly in ministry.  I can’t seem to take time off just to live.  My fear is about losing touch with my family, and feeling lonely […]

Blessed at the End of Your Rope

Recently I was reading in the gospel of Matthew and ran across Jesus’ first teaching to the disciples.  He starts it out this way: “You’re blessed when you’re at the end of your rope because then there is less of you and more of God and his rule.”  What in the world does that mean?  […]

When Problems Come in Waves

I feel like I’m drowning.  I’m over my head in conflicting problems.  I don’t know what to do,  and there is no one I feel safe enough to talk to about all this, yet you are able to write openly about some really hard problems, and how small groups have helped you.  How can a […]

Correction to “What Makes A Life Meaningful?”

On February 4th I posted a blog titled “What Makes A Life Meaningful.”  In that blog I was wrestling with the fact that as an old man (of 83) it seems to me about all I can do is help a few people find hope and meaning by helping them find sobriety and/or a new […]
