There is another part of us which no one ever sees, yet God also created. Our souls. The Bible says He is the lover of our souls. This invisible part may be what the Bible calls unpresentable; after all, the first human beings were naked, and God didn’t object. The soul has three parts: 1) the mind, which is not a part of our brain, in fact, the mind uses the brain; 2) the emotions, which are not a part of our heart, but our emotions use the heart; and 3) the will, which is not a part of the vocal chords, but our will uses our vocal chords. Our will is the least understood of all three parts of our souls. Suffice it to say, for the moment, that what we say is what we will, because what we say brings into being what we want to have happen. Quite often the will is in opposition to both, or to either the heart and the mind. Our words determine the winner.
It is with our souls that we bring Order out of Chaos. It is also with our souls that we sin, first by thought, then by words, and finally by action. The body is not a reluctant or an eager participant in this progression, it is simply obedient. If our thoughts are directed by revelation facts, our words will be a blessing to the chaos, and then our obedient servant, our body, will do what is required of it. But if our thoughts are directed by the enemy of our Creator, then our words will blaspheme, and our body, like a happy dog, will run to do our will to sin. Thoughts can be ordered, and ordering our words is absolutely essential as they are the building blocks of our lives. The body can be controlled by our thoughts and our words.

Writing has been in my blood, so to speak, but when I surrendered my life to Jesus Christ and He told me to write, all my trepidations rolled away and I began in earnest! After all, if God Almighty says it was His idea that I be a writer, who am I to stand in His way? My hope is that you not only like what I write, but that your life is moved by it, and that your party to Jesus and with Jesus turns your life into days of Heaven on Earth.
