Accidentally On Purpose

I once read Frank Peretti’s book ‘Piercing the Darkness’. In it he had God’s angels cause a believer to be in a traffic accident.  I remember thinking, “God wouldn’t do that, would He?” A few weeks ago I was on my way to Temple Aron HaKodesh.  I take the same route every week.  But this […]

Don’t Open That Door!

Sometimes, when reading the word of God, I feel like I’m watching a horror movie.  You know, the kind where you see one of the characters about to go into the room hiding the psychotic killer?  You scream at the screen, “Don’t open that door!” But it’s no good. She opens the door and meets […]
