Toilet Paper Novels

Nortahn Antivilus found himself in the situation several times a month. His psychiatrist has tried to help with therapy and medications but to no avail. He had used the restroom just before leaving the house but found that he now had to use the restroom again. In this particular case he would have to sit, which of course he could not do because he was terrified of touching anything others had touched. He wasn't just afraid of germs, he was afraid of everything, obsessive compulsive to the core. He didn't like the idea that there could be scracthes on the seat that could be hiding extra germs.

Nortahn pulled off about 25 sheets of brown rolled paper towels from the dispenser walked to the stall, he pulled on his latex gloves and began the long process of locking the door, unlocking, and locking it several times. Methodically he folded the paper towels and laid them across the seat making sure to cover any possible area that could contact his skin including the very front where …

The Giving Father and Protecting Holy Spirit

John 15:16  You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit, fruit that remains, so that whatever you ask the Father in my name he will give you.

So I've never heard this whole verse quoted, just the first part. So in fact the point of bearing fruit is so that whatever you ask the Father in the name of Jesus He will give you. The Father has always been about giving. "He came bearing good gifts for men"


John 15:26  When the Advocate comes, whom I will send you from the Father — the Spirit of truth who goes out from the Father — he will testify about me,

Plunger

In the grimy forgotten corner of a restroom, resting against the tile, was a white handle, nicked and dinged from use. At the bottom of the handle was a black rubber base, now turned green from age or use one couldn't tell. The grout had turned a brownish black over the years. The water ran a steady slow stream from a faucet in disrepair. The restroom, like the store, was a forgotten area. Used daily but never really tended to.

This particular restroom was located in the back of...

Paper

He stood before an audience of 3,000. He took out a blank notebook and slowly, ceremoniously, ripped out a piece of paper. The sound carried across the auditorium through his lapel mic. He never tired of this demonstration. He held out this paper over his head. Walking down passed the first 100 seat section, he stopped in near a disinterested young man in his late teens. “Excuse me, young man,” He prodded. “could you tell me what this is?” The teen looked up as he handed him the paper. “It’s a piece of paper” The young man replied un-amused. “It is?” the speaker replied. The speaker prodded further, “Is that all it is? Is that all you see?” The teen looked it over, and turned it around a few times. “A blank piece of paper?” The teen asked as if he wasn’t getting the question.
“Does anybody else see anything differently?” the speaker took the paper back and held it up again. He waited a beat before moving on. “I don’t see a blank piece of paper. I see money!” The teen must have thought…

Driving

Erik Liechter was driving the family home from a long day out and about. They had worked there way so far into the other side of the metroplex that it would now take an hour to get home, he was on the final stretch of that hour and getting quite tired. Wife and kids were asleep a half hour ago.

Erik was distracted by many thoughts about things he wanted to do in life but hadn't, and things he intended to do but never got around to, and duties of tomorrow morning. He tried not to bring work home with him, but nevertheless, he did.

It was somewhere in those thoughts that he found himself drifting into a sea of emotions and images and when he began seeing a images of flying people and impossible things happening all around him... The bumping and jarring of the vehicles snapped him into reality and he realized he'd been dreaming. The next few moments were like slow motion. His heart full of rushing incoming adrenaline began to pump faster and his mind pulled out of the sluggish haze…

Full Circle

Fashion. Couture. Money. These summed up the life of Jacques Sose'. The fact that he was born "Bobby Joe Smithe" in the backwaters of a Louisiana swamp to a deep Cajun family was known to very, very few. His own family, those that still lived, didn't know he was still alive and wouldn't recognize him if he walked in the house with all the changes he'd undergone in the last 10 years. Among the few who did know about his origins were his lawyer, who assisted with the new identity and kept it well hidden, his sister, Emma, who also left her past behind, and his partner Lazo Kalrian, who didn't know the details only that he had left some things behind.

It was on the road between airports and meetings on the few occasions that he could find no travel with him that the memories of those days came back. Today he is driving from LAX to a GALA show in Palm Springs, CA. A beeping sound was a welcome intruder to the flash backs, accept that the beeping came from the…

Sufficient Grace

POOR is Rich
I open to Matthew Chapter 5 and I'm reading verse 3 over and over.

Matthew 5

3Blessed are the poor in spirit:fortheirsis the kingdom of heaven.
To be blessed is to be empowered to prosper. Poor here refers to helpless and unable to help ones-self. As opposed to helpless but able to help ones self. This poor is totally un able to accomplish it's own ends.

To be poor in the spirit is to be totally unable to help ones-self spiritually. Everyone is in this state. There is no special class of poor here, this is all mankind. All people are helpless spiritually, caught up in a sin-cursed earth.

Kingdom of God/Kingdom of Heaven = God's ways of doing things, God's kingdom, His methods and His system of operation. VS the Worlds system of operation. God's Kingdom is not for some day in the future, it is here, it is now, and it is in you. It overrides all other systems and rules of operation.

"Empowered to Prosper are those who have come to realize, acknowledge,…
